• Stop Late Night Drilling!
    Loud drilling on the 2nd Ave subway is waking Upper East Side residents at all hours, including children and infants. This is happening around the 72nd and 96th street construction now, but will come to other areas soon. As long as the MTA is working "underground" it can drill 24 hours a day, no matter how loud or disruptive it is to residents. THIS NEEDS TO STOP. We have a right to the quiet enjoyment of our homes--a right to sleep. To PUT A STOP TO LATE NIGHT DRILLING we need to deliver a public outcry to the MTA, as well as our elected representatives, who have the power to make a difference. Action like this helped put a stop to late evening blasting and contain dust from blasting, so this can work. Even 50 signatures can have a big impact. If you want to go the extra mile, you can also contact one or more of your elected representatives directly: Council Members Jessica Lappin - District 5, Upper East Side lappin@council.nyc.gov / (212) 980-1808 Dan Garodnick - District 4, Upper East Side garodnick@council.nyc.ny.us / (212) 818-0580 Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (212) 860-0606 / Use this link to email: http://1.usa.gov/zv3EeB NYS Assembly Members Dan Quart quartd@assembly.state.ny.us / (212) 605-0937 Micah Kellner kellerm@assembly.state.ny.us / (212) 830-4906 State Senators Liz Krueger liz@lizkrueger.com / (212) 490-9535 Jose Serrano serrano@senate.state.ny.us / (212) 828-5829

  • Golf Green fees
    The Palm Coast owned golf courses, Palm Harbor, increases it green fee during the winter's months for local golfers. Why.? local golfers support the course year around includes the dog days of summer. It is the same course. I personal know at least 50 golfers that play golf at least twice a week who refused to play the course during the winter.Can the city afford to miss this revenue.? Your concerns and support will stop this nonsense.

  • Eliminate FICA earnings cap
    90% of American wage earners pay 6.2 % of their income into Social Security each year. The top 10% of American wage earners pay less than than 1% of their income into social security because they earn over $100,000 each year. Have every American pay the 6.2% rate of all income earned, to insure Social Security for the future.

  • Caring for Our Elders: Social Security Reform!
    All over the United States of America, retired people are finding it impossible to thrive. In short, Social Security is completely inadequate. All funds for Social Security need to be block-funded. Social Security retirements also desperately need to be based on inflation; for example,a person who retires while earning $70K a year can not be expected to survive on $900 per month!

  • Anyone paid by tax dollars pee in the cup!
    My petition is in response to states asking the poor to pee in cups to get aid from tax dollars. So, it would be much smarter to start with those that receive a salary paid by the people of the United States. From the president on down, cops, cps workers those that work in prisons. Any one that is paid by the government must pee.

  • 1% Of Defense to Education Petition
    That is the premise of this movement which seeks to take 1% of the budgets of various departments to support projects and initiatives targeting areas of society which are lacking including education, high education, social services, mental health, homelessness, etc. The targeted departments should be those which are highly funded and yet can survive with a minimal cut of no more than 1%. These departments should be so funded that %1 or a penny on the dollar shouldn’t cripple or adversely affect them (i.e. defense, foreign aid, entitlements, drug enforcement, etc).

  • Give our returning service women and men jobs
    Our service men and women are coming home to a very tight job market. These are proven workers; they follow direction well; they're young and strong and very capable. We owe them respect and opportunity.They should be offered jobs restoring our country's infrastructure. This could be part of their service or part of a program sponsored and paid for with grants to private companies hiring our veterans.

  • Disabled Veterans Need Our Help
    For the last 4 years disabled veterans have not seen one penny of a raise in an economy where the cost of living had obvious to everyone except the powers that be, gone up. This year, Congress had decided to give a 3% raise to all disabled veterans. However, in an effort to keep money for themselves, the raise was reduced to .96%. That means a 40% disabled veteran only got a 19 dollar raise. Why did the even bother? This is the thanks our government gives us for serving.
