• Corporations are NOT people
    The recent Supreme Court decisions culminating in Citizens United have given corporate interests unprecedented leverage in controlling the political arena. These corporate interests have corrupted the political process and threaten to turn the United States into an oligarchy. It's time for a Constitutional amendment to return the power of the people TO the people.

  • Tell Verizon "I want my service now"
    Forty-five thousand union workers were on strike for two weeks. During this time, hundreds of customers' telephone, computer, or TV service has been affected by outages or lack of manpower to provide new service. Now that the good union men and women are back to work, Verizon refuses to release this work and would rather have its employees standing around looking for something to do. We are here to provide the best service in the industry, and this highly trained union workforce is ready to service the customers every technical need. Demand your service from Verizon today.

  • Strike down assumed legality of granting personhood to corporations.
    Court Reporter Davis, placed The U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Waite's "pre-testimony statement" about “personhood” in the written Statement of Facts, with the statement, “The defendant Corporations are persons within the intent of the clause of section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States,<snip>. In effect, corporate personhood was not decided by the case "of Santa Clara County v Southern Pacific Railroad. The reporter had inadvertently included comments made by the Chief Justice outside the decision's scope. no one corrected the record and soon judges were referencing those comments as "precedent that corporations are people. We need a law which redresses this erroneous reporting of the court;s findings in that case.

  • Corporations are not persons
    Corporations should not enjoy the same rights as human beings. The power of corporations to influence our political life must end. The U.S. Constitution must be amended to end the existence of this legal fiction.

  • NO MORE FRACKING WITHOUT ACCOUNTABILITY
    Residents' drinking water, health, and property values are being systematically destroyed as a result of carcinogens, neurotoxins, endocrine disruptors and radioactive material in the fluid used in, and waste water resulting from, the new hydraulic fracturing or "fracking" process of horizontal drilling for natural gas wells all over the country. We are likewise concerned about over-projections of reserves by the natural gas and finance industries, and the likelihood that it is causing yet another economic bubble ready to burst and further damage our nation's economy. We demand that our state assembly bring a halt to all new drilling until the EPA's cumulative impact study is complete, and we demand that our congress repeal exemptions to the Clean Air Act and Safe Drinking Water Act granted to the natural gas industry in the 2005, so that they will again be regulated by the EPA. We further call for an end to corporate welfare funded by our tax dollars to these corporations, and demand that our state and federal governments hold accountable every corporation responsible for drinking water contamination, the health effects endured by individuals and families in communities affected by natural gas drilling, and inflated projections of reserves that put us at increased risk in this fragile economy.

  • ELIMINATE A SPECIAL INTEREST GIFT
    My petition is about the most outrageous clause ever to appear in a legislative act. It prevents the prescription drug act's administration from negotiating drug prices with pharmaceutical firms. This is outright graft. A billions of dollars legislative gift to major campaign donors.

  • Free Press....free of corporate/private ownership!
    For our media outlets to ever be truly "free" they must be free of the shakles of those "owners" who influence what is and isn't told to the American people. Move ownership of all corporate mass media news outlets into the holding hands of "blind-trusts" that are then not allowed to influence journalists freedoms to report the truth as they see it!
