• Stop Pre-Employment Credit Checks!
    Stop Pre-Emploment Credit Checks! Many states have already banned the discriminatory practice of checking credit ratings before offering employment but many have yet to catch up. This petition is in effort to raise awareness to Government Officials at all levels in Tennessee that this practice is discriminatory and elitist in nature. It prevents those who have recently fallen on hard times through no fault of their own from joining the workforce again and being productive members of society. I urge you to take a stand for the hard working Tennesseans that want to work. US States That Took Action to Eliminate Credit Checks in Non-Financial Employment * In the Northeast: New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Vermont, Maryland, Pennsylvania. * In the Midwest: Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Indiana, * In the South: Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina * In the South/West: Texas, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Arkansas * In the West: California, Oregon, Washington, Montana, Nebraska

  • Spousal Credit Repair Bill
    Men and Women are being denied jobs and homes or apartments and other important things because of bad credit and other things such as judgements or liens and they are not the ones who signed for the loans. If your spouse or ex spouse does not take care of loans or credit it hurts innocent people that may be resposible in the past but new things hurt the innocent spouse or in the case of divorce ex spouse

  • Protect Your Zoning Rights
    SB 1100 of Session 2011 introduced by Joe Scarnatti, in order to expedite gas extraction gives foreign and domestic gas interests authority over American municipalities' zoning rights. This is treasonous legislation.

  • Amend The Constitution: Corporations Are Not People
    The Supreme Court ruled in 2010 in Citizens United that corporations are persons who are entitled to all of the rights protected in the Constitution. This is based on a lie. They were never before recognized as natural persons like you and me. Corporations are global, powerful and wealthier than many nations. The ruling will essentially allow corporations to enslave us. We must oppose it, and an amendment is the best way to do it.

    Justice Clarence Thomas has violated federal law and rules of ethics by falsifying 20 years of financial disclosure forms and engaging in judicial insider trading to enrich himself from the Citizens United decision. We're calling on the Justice Department to apply Equal Justice Under Law to the conduct of Clarence Thomas.

    Paul LePage was "elected" Governor of Maine with less than 32% of the vote. In his brief time in office he has been anything from an embarrassment to a disaster for the State.

  • Environmental Education
    Environmental education should be taught in every subject at the Secondary level, as a lesson or as research within the context of the subject itself. In this manner, our public school students will become knowledgeable and involved in environmental issues while their minds are still open. Environmental education has been proven to improve student grades and reduce the dropout rate.

  • Terminal & Coal Trains Threat to W. Washington
    Peabody Coal, Goldman Sachs, and BNSF are seeking a permit to build a coal terminal at Cherry Point north of Bellingham Washington. Coal would be shipped there by rail from Montana up the Coast of Western Washington. We are asking Washington residents to oppose both building the terminal and the right to "train" coal up our coastline and through our cities. Both actions endanger our immediate environment (air and water), threaten personal health (coal dust, diesel particulate matter, mercury), and endanger the planet. We need to warn communities along the train path as well as other concerned citizens in order to stop this project from happening. We have no vote except to speak out and the time is now.

  • Save DiMaggio Playground Baseball Field
    San Francisco Board of Supervisors has voted to place tennis courts in the left out field of Joe DiMaggio Field. This is the baseball field where Joe DiMaggio learned to play in his North Beach San Francisco Neighborhood. The play ground has been officially named after him but the ball field has been officially eliminated. Please say no to this attack on baseball, our history and the memory of Joe DiMaggio. The courts don't need to be there.

  • Governor Walker: How Dare You
    Urgent: Gov. Walker and Wisconsin Republicans are calling an “extraordinary session” of the legislature, beginning Tuesday, June 14. By this Friday, they're expected to use this session to slash our education, health care and support systems, and jam through rights-stripping attacks on Wisconsin workers. The people of Wisconsin have stood together for over 100 days in a historic response to the unprecedented assault on the working and middle classes. Wisconsinites have rallied, marched and even set up tent cities to call attention to Gov. Walker’s devastating budget proposals and to stop the attacks on working people. But even with recalls of anti-worker legislators looming, the attacks continue. Even if we don't stop Walker and his friends in the legislature, we need to continue to make sure the governor, the legislature, and the media understand that the people of Wisconsin don't support their radical agenda.
