  • Bar Tax-Exemption for U.S. Chamber of C.
    According to the L.A. Times of 5/26/11, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce spent $33 million last year on advertising to influence political races without disclosing its donors. Why should they have tax-exempt status? (They also have reportedly raised more than $80 million to spend for the same purpose in the 2012 election cycle.)

  • Truth in Political Advertising
    People try to sell us things all day and night on television. Those same people HAVE to tell the truth about their product. They can't (by law) say that it does something that it doesn't do. What I want is for the Truth in Advertising Act to apply to political adds. If you are like me you are tired of propaganda in our electoral process. You are tired of adds about bills that are total fabrications with no basis in fact. And I am tired of polititions lying and NEVER being called on it.

  • Restore Central Time To Indiana
    Children are being hit & killed by vehicles while waiting for buses and walking to school in the pitch-black mornings of our geographically incorrect Eastern Time Zone. These incidents (along with rapes & abductions) have increased dramatically since 2006, when our legislature finally put Indiana on Daylight Saving Time without taking the logical accompanying step of returning us to our historically (and geographically) correct time zone. The Central Time Coalition hopes to request the DOT finally hold the series of statewide time zone hearings promised us in 2005, but which were never held due to a "technicality."

  • Hershey: Stop Child Labor and Raise the Bar!
    We all love chocolate, but unfortunately, many of our favorite treats are tainted by the ongoing use of child labor, forced labor and trafficking in the West African cocoa industry. Almost ten years since chocolate companies committed to ending this exploitation, these abuses continue. Many chocolate companies have taken steps to trace their cocoa purchasing and implement labor rights standards among their suppliers, but the Hershey Company lags behind its competitors. Hershey can be a leader in addressing labor abuses in its supply chain by starting to source Fair Trade Certified cocoa for its chocolate products. Tell Hershey to raise the bar for responsible cocoa sourcing!

  • Protect our Families: Outlaw Divorce
    With divorce rates sky-high, the social fabric disintegrating, and deviants clamoring for the right to marry, it's time to stand up for the historical institution of marriage. How can we restore dignity and respect and honor to this once-great institution? The answer is as simple as "Til death do us part". Stand up for marriage: outlaw divorce.

  • Support Grants for Storm Shelters in Tornado Alley
    Storm shelters provide a high level of protection from tornados but they can be expensive to build. Currently in the United States, FEMA offers grants after tornados have devastated communities but residents need to be able to protect themselves before disaster strikes. The USDA offers low-interest loans but the last thing that someone can afford to do after they've lost everything that they own is to take out a loan. I'm calling on Congress to provide grants for homeowners to install storm shelters in states impacted by tornados through Community Development Block Grants.

  • Stop the Ban on Affirmative Action: Say NO to State Question 759
    Oklahoma Legislature just passed a bill that will send an affirmative action BAN to the ballot in 2012. Affirmative action is described as: any measure that considers race, gender, disability, or veteran status that is adopted to provide opportunities to qualified individuals who have historically been denied opportunities and to prevent future occurrence. We do not believe opportunities will be available to some qualified people if this ban is passed.

  • Made in America
    Unemployment is rising, while executive salaries stay high. If a product can be manufactured in the United States of America, it must be made in the USA in order to be sold here. We must not allow US companies to outsource manufacturing, shipping, and other production overseas where they can pay less than minimum wage.

    Most of the tests students routinely take to test their progress are hardly a valid indicator of what we should be measuring: the capacity to think critically in order to be prepared to solve the many complex issues we are facing. Our populace confuses beliefs with facts, scientific knowledge with superstition, etc. Teaching to success on tests narrows the curriculum and that will be even worse once teachers' jobs are keyed to their students' ability to take tests.

  • Stop Imposing Fees On Single Mothers—And Their Children—For Receiving Child Support Through SCU
    For several years now, single mothers who receive child support through Support Collection Unit (SCU) are being charged an annual fee of $25. This fee, for which there has never been an explanation given, is literally skimmed off the top of a child's support money. Where are these many millions of dollars—garnered at the expense of children—going? And further, if a fee must be installed, please charge the offending party: the one who would not pay voluntarily in the first place!
