Petition Tag - jackson
Drugs in the music and movie business have taken many lives over the years. At no point has the industry taken a solid stand to improve this condition. Society in general bans drug use in the workplace as do others such as professional and amateur sports teams.
Hollywood should now lead the way in banning drugs and drug use in light of the recent losses of Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston. A policy banning drug use should be contained in every talent contract and embrace a true zero tolerance drug policy.
This policy would be mandated and appear in every recording or movie contract. The clause would terminate the contract upon breach. This ban can and should also extend to any lyrics and content that promote the use and sale of illegal drugs.
The mission behind this petition is to make Jackson Hole a safer and more open community. Very simple in its intention, the Late Night Transportation Crusade is an acknowledgement of a voiced need from the residents, visitors and seasonal friends of this area.
Whether you vacation or live, ski or snowboard, farm or hunt, dance or run, paint or sing in Jackson, you have been a part of this community and have experienced that this place takes care of its own.
We collectively want this to be a safe, beautiful and enjoyable place to live and visit; a socially responsible community that comes together to support each other when the situation calls for it. This is a moment for us to shine, to say we need and want Late Night Transportation.
We want less impaired driving, fewer DUI arrests, less animals killed on the road, our tourists to get downtown and our locals to Teton Village, our employees to have a ride and our friends and visitors to get home safe. We want to work hard, play hard and experience all of Jackson—and be safe getting home.
There are models for Safe Ride Programs all over the United States and the intended outcome of this petition is to generate ideas for the model that fits Jackson best, and to establish a non-profit for its implementation. The Crusade’s Facebook page, facebook.com/JH.Latenight, will act as a forum for research and discussion and you are invited to visit and share your ideas, thoughts, concerns and comments.
In the past the global media has not hesitated calling Michael Jackson names, but they marvel at spreading lies about him. Such as; Michael bleaching his skin because, according to them, he wanted to be white. Issuing an article in which they claim he had cocaine in his underwear. Or saying that Michael was gay, to name just a few.
I will print this off and send it to all possible media outlets once enough signatures have been gathered.
The media loves nothing more than to make fun of Michael for money. They will make the public believe anything they say. Even if it's not true. They brainwash the public with their slander. Their continues lies have contributed to some of the worst monents in his life. Please sign this petition.
In the last year two kids were hit by speeding vehicles traveling on Peach Place which has a speed limit of 25 mph. On this road are two churches and a neighborhood park which is located on a hill. I have been living on this road for over twenty years and I've witnessed a high speed chase and a four year run over by a truck, on New Year's Day.
I have a nine year old son who rides his bike to the park with his friends and I have a fear that one day a car would come speeding over that hill and injure more children.
Considering the new story that Extra's Alicia Jacobs ran on Michael Jackson claiming he had a secret love life w/ a gay lover, it has become clear (yet again) that the media does not plan to back down. Even after their years of trying to destroy Michael came to reality on June 25, 2009, they continue.
Michael is no longer here to dispel or confirm any speculative information about his (personal) life. It was never an obligation that he do so in the first place.
This petition is our attempt to stop the media from further feeding speculative and likely untrue information about Michael that may continue to defame his name and challenge / attack his integrity or person in anyway.
Does this world not have a conscience? These are kids; what are we doing to them?
A while ago Michael Jackson's kids were involved in a car accident after media were dogging them. Sure, no one got hurt, and it was not their vehicle that got hit, but it could easily have happened. Do we really want another Princess Diana? Do we want to live with regrets?
And now articles are being published such as this one.
This is a gross invasion of a CHILD's privacy. The person who sold the story obviously felt like she deserved to see Paris' emotion (obviously if Paris started crying, she would get much more money from The Sun, come on people, time to listen to Money) so when she didn't she called them "robots".
And you know what? It doesn't matter if it's negative or positive. Sure, it's sweet that the kids go to yoga or whatever the hell they want to go to, but it's none of our business. We act like we have a right to know whatever we want about their lives. They never volunteered for this, any less than Michael did, but even more so because they were born into this, never did anything to be put into the public eye. And now they'll get stalked the rest of their lives.
As Michael so rightly says in Money, people do this for money, and the only way they will be affected is with money. We can write a letter, we can make a petition, and no one's going to care, because hey, they keep making money from those who want to read the latest drama.
So here's what we've got to do. We've got to use the power of our dollar bill.
I propose that we make a petition. But not just any petition that's a list of names saying "we want you to stop"... they won't care. By signing this petition, you will AGREE that you will NEVER buy a tabloid or publication that includes stories, pictures, or anything about Michael's kids. Positive or negative, you will not support the invasion of privacy, and you will definitely not support any lies or rudeness about children.
I know some people enjoy reading tabloids, and this will be difficult, because there will be other stories you'll want to read. But you can give this up for Michael and his kids. And this lasts indefinitely--or at least until the tabloids stop posting stuff about his kids, since of course you're always "allowed" to buy a tabloid that does not include them (:
When a substantial amount of people have joined the petition, we'd mail it to the major tabloids. If enough people are involved, this will make a difference. That many people not buying the magazines (and not giving their money to the advertisers) will cause them to rethink and make that simple choice not to include the kids.
On June 25, 2009 Music dies the King passed away, Michael Jackson was gone and his legend will live on. The media is the real killer of Michael and This Is Not It is only a group of attention asking fans and only the real and faithful fans are backing what michael really wanted and that's to see him in good health, Singing and Dancing on the screen. With all proceeds going to his heirs. This Is It is the last time Michael was on stage and he was showing he is and will always be the king of pop and the true fans will see that.
On July 5,2009, shortly after the death of Michael Jackson before he was buried and while him family was still in mourning, Congressman Peter King made a video which was posted on the internet. He called the late entertainer a pervert, a child molester and a pedophile. He scolded the press coverage and felt he was speaking the views of a great majority of American people. He asked what does it say about our country.
We ask, what do his comments say about our country or our government running it? Michael Jackson was tried in a United States Court of Law and was found Not Guilty. His remarks have provoked a large amount of similar remarks on the internet all attacking Michael Jackson reputation.
Michael Jackson was a very inspirational, extremely talented human being who is a World Icon and Humanitarian. Very few have given more to this world than he.
To all those non believers and haters of Michael jackson who say he is in well you know where, i have one thing to say, Judge not lest you be judged.
In his lifetime, Michael Gave and did not stop giving, to over 35 different charities, he also as the book of James read Visited orphans and gave to aids and cancer patients in the children's hospital often in secret as matthew 6 says to do all your charitable deeds in secret
MJ did not openly promote his Charity for self gain
and all of these good deeds and the music he gave us which was always clean, compared to what is out there today get swept away when the tabloids jump all over the lies and allegations of him, saying the most hurtful things that anyone who has seen an interview or watch him live on stage would be able to tell you is utter trash, he was innocent and he loved god and Jesus very much.
Whether you believe in Jesus or not, please sign as a fan who believes Michael is not hurting or alone anymore.
Peace in the lord our god
I am a UK citizen who is outraged about the fact Barack Obama will not consider giving Michael Jackson His Legacy title.
Even though 1993 was a tough time for Michael after the Chandler made false allegations about Michael i do believe the innocence from children is exceptional, and is solely and purely seen by alot of people and Michael loved these attributes gave "he loves the innocence in their playful smiles and wanted to bring healing in to this harsh and awful world we live in" Yet people still try to deceive their way in to Michael's Life and even in his death trying to claim the rights to something that they have no right to - Michael's property, dignity, pride, innocence, love and pure soul of which they had eventually destroyed a very gentle man.
In 2005 the same happened again only this time Michael was given the best gift any person could give him - Freedom from all haters and Bullshiters (tabloids) and found himself cleared of all charges despite a 40 years within the entertainment industry, and his good works as a fabulous humanitarian, Michael is still being betrayed and he should not have to endure such filth and ignorance from his fellow country men and people from all over the world too.
Michael Jackson is an American musician, entertainer, and businessman. The seventh child of the Jackson family, he debuted on the professional music scene at the age of 11 as a member of The Jackson 5 and began a solo career in 1971 while still a member of the group. Referred to as the "King of Pop" in subsequent years, five of his solo studio albums have become some of the world's best-selling records: Off the Wall, Thriller, Bad, Dangerous and HIStory.
In the early 1980s, he became a dominant figure in popular music and the first African-American entertainer to amass a strong crossover following on MTV. The popularity of his music videos airing on MTV, such as "Beat It," "Billie Jean," and Thriller—credited for transforming the music video into an art form and a promotional tool—helped bring the relatively new channel to fame. Videos such as "Black or White" and "Scream" kept Jackson as a staple on MTV into the 1990s. With stage performances and music videos, Jackson popularized a number of physically complicated dance techniques, such as the robot and the moonwalk. His distinctive musical sound and vocal style influenced numerous hip hop, pop and contemporary R&B artists. One of the few artists to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, his other achievements include multiple Guinness World Records—including one for Thriller as the world's best-selling album—13 Grammy Awards, 13 number one singles in his solo career—more than any other male artist in the Hot 100 era—and the sale of over 750 million units worldwide.
Jackson's highly publicized personal life, coupled with his successful career, has made him a part of popular culture for almost four decades. In recent years he has been cited as one of the world's most famous men.
My name is Latonya Brown and I would like to introduce a resolution to the House of Representatives. Yesterday, we saw how the world came together in recognition of a legend. Michael Jackson has done so much for the world so much that Congressman Lee announced there's a resolution 600 that would name Michael Jackson A Humanitarian, LEGEND, and WORLD Icon.
Michael Jackson deserves a day of recognition for all of his humanitarian acts. I am no writer but I am a concerned fan and citizen. For years, people have misunderstood all that Michael Jackson was and is to so many. I think it's high time that he finally gets the respect that he truly deserves.

18. Dune Remake
Come on, you know it'd be good. I'm not saying replace David Lynch's 1984 classic, but that film was weird and changed loads of stuff.
I propose that a NEWER version of 'Dune' with CGI and sh*t should be adapted and be more true to the book because we're ready for it now. Especially because most people I know remember the 1984 film as that camp sci-fi flop with Sting. Drawing Sting away from Dune is a good thing.
Peter Jackson should do it aswell. He did LOTR and that was pretty cool, amirite?
Yeah. Good thing.
Please help a girl's dream come true to play Luna Lovegood in the new Harry Potter Film.

This is the first petition for permission to use a metal drum fire pit as a heat source during the frigid cold Tennessee Days.
This petition is being started to persuade District Attorney, Drew Lane, AND/OR the NAACP AND/OR other public officials, to take action against a racial sign located outside a resturaunt in Paulding County, GA.
The sign is a public display of hate, and an infringement upon the rights of all Americans to live free of predjudice and malice. It is also a direct Slander of Mr. Michael Jackson.
The owner of the resturaunt has the right to have his beliefs, but not to force those beliefs upon others, causing injury.
The sign is racist, hateful, and disrespectful, not only to the African American community, but to all of us who cherish equity and unity in our one human race. In addition to that, the sign is also a direct slander of Mr. Michael Jackson. No American should have to feel offended, or threatened as they travel through, or within, your county.

Nous, loyaux fans de Madonna, désirons démontrer notre support à la parution d'une compilation DVD de tous les clips de Madonna.
Nous pensons que Madonna est l'une des artistes les plus populaires et pionnière dans le domaine des vidéos clips. Cette parution de ce DVD-compilation serait une pièce importante dans l'Histoire de Madonna mais aussi dans celle de la Musique en général.
Beaucoup d'autres artistes ont déjà lancés de telles compilations (Pet Shop Boys, Duran Duran, Janet Jackson...) et nous sommes persuadés que ceci serait un succès sans précédents et dans le meilleur intérêt de tous. Nous signons tous ici en support à cette requête.
We, Madonna's loyal fans, would like to show our support for a DVD release of Madonna's COMPLETE VIDEOS COLLECTION.
We feel that Madonna is one of the most successfull and Pionner in Videos Hisroty and this DVD-release is a critical piece of Madonna and Music history.
As many other artists had already done so successfully (see Pet Shop Boys, Duran Duran, Janet Jackson...)we strongly feel it would be in the best interest of everybody involved and we sign here as proof or our support to this!
Petition to get George Michael and Michael Jackson to fight for charity.
Rap is pretty much impossible to dance to, all people ever do at our dances is grind and the administration considers this "inappropriate" for some reason, so really, there is nothing left to do except stand around and be bored. In addition to this, rap is just noise - it's garbage, it is a pointless genre that will most likely fade away in the next decade anyway.
What we need at prom is music which can actually be danced to, and enjoyed by everyone. All in all, if we play stuff the people actually LIKE, there may even be an increase in turnout to future dances.
THE FOLLOWING IS A REPLY TO THE FIRST MESSAGE POSTED BY "Sum Dude": (All you damned hypocrits at my school who say rap sucks and should be abolished at dances yet retract your statements after I actually do something about it better read this!)
Man, first off, you're obviously treading into waters you don't know about here - "ROCK is just a whole of loud noise mixed with inaudible and non-sensical lyrics." - first off, the "ROCK" you are thinking of is called METAL, don't confuse your genres, and the METAL you are talking about here is Black/Death/Thrash Metal, and even Hair Metal, which I am all big fans of, but if you aren't thats fine by me, everyone is entitled to his opinion. And some ROCK, is actually quite soft an coherent, such as Air Supply (not that I am a big fan I just use them as an example). Anyway, who said anything about ROCK on this petition? The image which states "Rock On" may imply something like this, but doesn't necessarily come out and say "rock needs to be played at prom" Maybe I, the author of this petition, was thinking techno should be played, or maybe a slow song here and there seeing as it IS a formal dance w/ a date. Or maybe the music I was implying was disco? Surely disco can be danced to - Studio 54 did quite well for itself. What about 80's retro such as Bananarama? Maybe that was they type of music the author was thinking, that is a danceable music. How about 80's pop music such as Michael Jackson or Wang Chung? Those two artists are completely danceable. What did the generations before us dance to? I'll tell you - all of the above except for rap, a relatively new genre. The 20's saw the jazz scene emerge, the 30's saw the era of big band which lasted through the 40's, the 50's saw the rise of not only ROCK N' ROLL, but also do-wop, which was big through the mid 60's, until the british invasion which lasted into the early 70's, which still had people dancing to it - yes British Invasion bads are ROCK, and I don't find The Beatles or the Rolling Stones to be loud noise or to have non-sensical lyrics. Now don't get me wrong, some songs are just plain stupid, but some do actually have deep meanings masked under all the "loud noise", as you say. After the British Invasion came along a fresh new sound, which I do enjoy although it is sometimes refered to as "the rap of the 70's" - disco, many rockers of the time hated it, just as we hate rap of today, but disco actually had a beat, it could be danced to, and the lyrics were not violent and degrating, sure they were non-sensical, but they were sure fun to dance to, unlike rap, which people can only grind to, and as stated in the petition history is "outlawed" at my school. After the death of disco in the early 80's, retro, such as the sound of Bananarama came about, which was played and danced to in clubs throughout the country; as well as the heavy pop influence of this age, such as Cyndi Lauper and Michael Jackson. Pop even made it's way into mixing with ROCK to become Hair Metal, which also was danced to time and time agian whether it be at live show or dance hall. I am in full agreement that Hair Metal band's lyrics don't always have the deepest meaning, but their songs known as POWER BALLADS, often times DID have a deeper meaning than the usual "get laid and drunk tonight" lyiric style.
After a well-known grunge band hit it big in the 1991 with their album Nevermind and thei most famous song of all-time "Smells Like Teen Spirit", youth all over the country were finding another form of dance called SLAM DANCING, most commonly known as moshing. As violent as this may seem, it is a valid form of dance and is practiced at Punk and Metal shows all over the globe, as well as at school dances. Also at this time in the early 90's a hybrid sound emerged which sounded like disco, but mixed with rap emerged. The most well-known example of this is C&C Music Factorie's "Gonna Make You Sweat", which swept night clubs by storm, as well as the classic old school rap song done by MC Hammer - "U Can't Touch This". I myself hate rap with a passion, but these two songs actually did have beats by which one could dance.
The rap of today is stricly grind-worthy and should be contained to the night clubs of today, and not a school dance where grinding is "forbidden". Having said this, I believe that it is not necessary to play rap OR rock at the prom of RJHS, the other forms of dance music are most acceptable. P.S. -rap sucks, ROCK owns (*_*) m/
We all live with in 2 miles of a dirt pit that Anderson Columbia Construction owns. They run trucks in & out and they contract other trucks such as Holmes II out of Anniston AL to do so also. And then there is Grice & Son who runs in & out often also.
We have some people that live on the Popular Springs Road that have very bad health and some with severe breathing problems. We have called and go very littel response to them keeping the roads wet down so that the dust doesn't become unbearable to these folks. The trucks of course keep the roads a mess. They came last week and barely sprinkled the road, that is just not what we need. We need it to be maintained as long as they are going to be running in & out all day.
It is awful for all of us, but our main concern is for the health and well being of the families who live here in Jackson County.
Peter Jackson should release a gag reel for "Lord of the Rings." It would be awesome to see all the mistakes and funniness that went on that wasn't included in the movies' behind the sceens features.
In April 2004 some Jackson State Community College students brought forth the solutions to the parking area problems at JSCC.
The parking lots are in need of desperate repair, however, the school lacks the state funding. So, in order to solve this problem and satisfy the safety needs of JSCC students and faculty, this group of students ask that a committee of volunteers be put together to repair the parking lot.
This is petition is for the fact that Peter Jackson cut the Faramir/Eowyn scenes out of Return of the King, and I/we would like them to be put into the Extended Edition of the movie at least. They were important part of the book even though it was a romance and cutting the scenes not only confused many people as to Faramir and Eowyn's fate, but it left their stories open ended.
Michael Jackson has been harrassed for several years for being an innocent and inspirational man. No proof has been found that alleged sex allegations are true. Until proven otherwise I support everything that this wonderful man and excellent father has done and will in the future do.
If anyone feels that he has been treated unfairly, which I sincerely hope people out there do, please sign this and show your support for this fantastic and loving performer!!!
Thankyou for your support.
This is my first time standing up, at least with written words, but I am sick and tired of Michael being slammed for one little mistake, so if you feel like this and you are tired of people such as that woman, Mrs. Allred just attacking him for the way he raises his kids please sign this.
