In light of the current state of the economy and the current national deficit, the following petition is the reform the Congressional and Senatorial pay scale and benefits package to ensure stability and equality within this great country.
The following is a reform demanded by the American People to be acted upon as a first order of business by our servants in the US Congress and US Senate and to be approved by the President of the United States of America. The pay rate for the average PFC in the American armed forces is approximately $22,000 a year. Overall the average American, age 25 or older, made roughly $32,000 per year. Politicians are our servants. However, as of January 2010 the annual salaries are as follows: Representative is $174,000. The Speaker of the House and the Majority and Minority Leaders earn more: $223,500 and $193,400 for their party leaders (the same as Senate leaders).
Serving in Congress and the Senate is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators. Congresspersons and Senators pay should reflect the average salaries of the average American.
We the American people demand the following changes be made immediately.

Το διοικητικό αδιέξοδο του Α.Σ. Λαμία είναι ένα μόνιμο φαινόμενο που εμφανίζεται κάθε καλοκαίρι κι απαιτεί μια μόνιμη λύση. Οι φίλαθλοι της ομάδας μπορούμε να δώσουμε την λύση!
Greetings Skijoring Enthusiast!
We are concerned about the future of the sport, the viability of the Midwest Skijorers club and critical relationships with cities and counties that provide excellent trails for our use.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, since its opening, has constantly inducted artists that don't belong. Cher, Donna Summer, Run DMC, and Michael Jackson, just to name a few. Doesn't matter whether they're great or not. They're not Rock. That's why this needs to be fixed. Put them in the Pop, Rap, or Disco Hall of Fame, if there is one.
Blues gave birth to Rock, so Blues belongs. So, any member of The Rock Hall that is not an influential musician of the Rock or Blues genres, they will be removed. And, from now on, the people pick the inductees. And, they must be influential musicians of Rock or Blues genre. NO EXCEPTIONS!
It's called The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Let's keep it that way!
Over the last five years there have been numerous changes in management, personnel and levels of service at the I'on Club. This last year the changes have resulted in an increase in overall dissatisfaction among members both pool and tennis.
Lack of services including reducing staff and shortening hours of operation. No new merchandise(clothing) in the pro shop. The overall condition of the facility has degraded to an unacceptable level. The playing conditions of the tennis courts has fallen to a level of concern to the point were player safety is an issue.
Overall maintenance of the facilities are generally poor and in comparison to many other similar facilities an embarrassment to the members.
The Board will recommend to the ORSC at its September 9, 2009, meeting the following changes, effective for members retiring on or after August 1, 2015:
- to retire with no actuarial reduction to one’s retirement allowance, a member must be age 67 with 10 years of service or age 57 with 30 years of service;
- a member may retire early at age 62 with 10 years of service or age 60 with 25 years of service;
- f a member retires early, base early retirement reductions on actuarial reductions from the lesser of age 67 or possible attainment of 30 years of service.
To minimize the possibility of making unnecessary benefit changes and increasing member and employer contributions, SERS’ Board opted to periodically examine its 30-year funding responsibility and recommend benefit or contribution changes as needed. Should the recommended retirement eligibility changes for members retiring on or after August 1, 2015 fail to keep SERS within the 30-year funding window, the Board will consider other changes such as reducing cost of living adjustments and contribution increases for members and employers. The Board also understood that it could look at the costs of the Health Care program, if needed. This tiered approach addressed concerns from SERS’ advocacy groups that overreacting to the present funding situation could adversely affect members and retirees for many years.
Even before the current financial crisis began, SERS’ Board took action to keep the pension fund stable. SERS was the only Ohio public pension system to address pension design changes necessary to offset increased life expectancy when it introduced S.B. 148 in 2007 and advocated for its passage.
Recently, Toastmasters International Board of Directors cancelled the right for District Regions to host Regional Conferences.
The Regional Conferences, just like District Conferences provides Toastmaster members the opportunity to learn, network and broaden the Toastmasters horizons at a very reasonable cost. The Regional Conference Team made up of the host District, provides all the support and efforts at no cost to the Toastmasters International Board of Directors. The Regional Conference, to the best of my knowledge, has not lost any money and therefore usually either breaks even, or makes money for the host District. The only cost that may be associated is the cost for an International Director to be present at the Conference, but this can be decided by the Regional Conference Team.
This decision should not be up to the ID Board, but should be a decision that is made at the Regional and District levels.
Noelle has lived in the UK for 6 years. Her previous political involvement and that of her father led to Noelle being imprisoned, where she was assaulted, beaten and tortured. She has submitted medical evidence confirming her ill-treatment.
The adjudicators have accepted that, had she come straight to the UK in 1995, she would have been granted asylum.
The members of the armed forces provide safety for this county and they also risk there lives on the front line so why should they have to pay full price for season tickets especially when they get bad pay (mostly).
We can stop the killing of Iranian protesters; we can bring the perpetrators to justice.
In the past, undue influence and duress has been exerted upon the Coach(es) of PHS Soccer in naming certain players as "Captains" to the PHS Soccer Team at the deprivation of more worthy student-athletes and to the detriment of the team.
This environment whereby cronyism and political patronage is promoted and where an autocratic method of naming "Captains" has, in the past, led to the collapse of team morale and reflects poorly not only upon the soccer coaches and team but rather, by a proxy representation, reflects poorly upon the athletic department and the school.
To remedy this problem and for the assistance to, insulation of, and benefit of the coaching staff; for the morale of the team; for the prestigious reputation of our beloved school the players, the team, the athletic department and the school:
We honor our American heritage and ideals of democracy by petitioning the following:
A Scottish Clan without a chief is like a fish without water. For 200 years Clan Cunningham has been without a chief to lead us since the death of the last chief in 1796.
Fortunately the last four chiefs were unified in their designation of a female line as heirs should their male-heir line fail, and we have found the eldest descendant of that line.
Therefore it it time to have him recognized by the Crown through Lord Lyon and take the leadership in Clan Cunningham.
This week Iranians turned out in record numbers not seen since the beginning of the Iranian revolution to change their current President Mahmood Ahmadinejad.

THIS PETITION WILL BE CLOSED AT 9:00AM ON TUESDAY DECEMBER 9, 2008 AT WHICH TIME IT WILL BE PREPARED FOR PRESENTATION TO THE CCIAOR/CCIMLS BOARD OF DIRECTORS
On Monday November 24, 2008 sixteen members of the Cape Cod and Islands Association of Realtors assembled in Orleans to review the most recent developments of the CCIAOR/CCIMLS websites. Following are some of the questions discussed.
General questions and concerns:
• Did enough planning go into these web sites?
• What are the possible unintended consequences to CCIAOR/CCIMLS members?
• What is the primary objective?
• Whose interests are best served?
• These web sites will make it more difficult for agents to distinguish their Internet services from others.
Sales questions and concerns:
• Prospects may move away from the individual web sites of agents and agencies.
• Prospective buyers have little or no reason to register on a member’s web site.
• CCIAOR/CCIMLS is unfairly using membership dues to compete with the agents for prospect traffic.
• Agent/Agency web site investment of time, effort and treasure is wasted.
Rental questions and concerns:
• A highly publicized web site places the association in competition with the member's sites. Members spend a great deal of time and money on software and SEO. The members now have one more very powerful and strong competitor for rental cutomers.
• Rental listings are mostly non-exclusive. The new web sites will inevitably have the same property listed many times by different agencies with different rate schedules, availability calendars, etc. This will be confusing to the consumers and drive rental prices down.
We, the undersigned law students, respectfully express our shared aspiration that human rights law and policy--domestic and international--be accorded a greater presence in the Duke Law curriculum. These topics, we believe, are critically important to the lives of all people around the globe in the twenty-first century.
Our law school is recognized for its strengths in several legal disciplines. Human rights is, however, not yet among them, as compared with many of our peer institutions.
Only a small number of courses address human rights and civil rights law. Such courses are mostly offered only on an occasional basis. Moreover, there are no, or almost no, faculty members at Duke Law who specialize in human rights full-time.
Back to the Bay is a forum that all Home and Away forums love. It has members from all around the world. As of 1/04/2008 it had 11112 members.
Until today. Today it was announced that all moderators and librarians will no longer be needed. Also included in the cut was one of our admin. Chris J, one of the founding members of the site and forum.
Surely cutting this amount of staff members, publicly in a thread isn’t right.
The Florida State University chapter of the Phi Alpha Delta Pre-Law International Fraternity will be holding a state conference for the Florida chapters from March 28th, 2008 - March 30th, 2008. The chapter will be charging its members $40 to attend the conference.
During the conference, those participating in mock trial will not be able to attend the dinner on Friday night, nor will they be able to attend the various activities and speakers on Saturday aside from the banquet and social, however they are still being asked to pay for all of the events. The members of mock trial are asking to pay only for the amount of the banquet.
Many members of the Leadership Board have also contributed a great amount to the conference and as a result are asking for a reduced rate of $20. The Executive Board may determine whom the "contributing members" of the Leadership Board are.
However, if a question results about whom is considered a "contributing member" of the Leadership Board, the Leadership Board reserves the right to call for a vote to decide.
In reliance of the Prime Minister's pre-election promises we the undersigned hereby petition the Prime Minister to Ban Live Exports in accordance with ALP`s then stated policy.
The petition of the undersigned protests in the strongest possible terms against the live export of Australian animals and the ALP broken pre-election promises.
The Prime Minister is aware that the ALP pre policy promises aired on ABC Landline regarding the cruel live export trade have been broken by his Government within weeks of the 2007 elections.
During transportation the animals are subjected to inhumane conditions resulting in unacceptably high death rates and suffering. Upon arrival they suffer extreme cruelty and barbarism prior and during slaughter- practices that are illegal in Australia.
Pakistan former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto has died after a suicide bombing that killed at least 14 of her supporters, ex-government spokesman Tariq Azim Khan and Pakistan's primary television networks said.
Bhutto is helped from her vehicle following the October 18 suicide attack on her motorcade.
1 of 2 Bhutto suffered bullet wounds in the aftermath of the bomb attack, TV networks report.
Video of the scene just moments before the explosion showed Bhutto stepping into a heavily-guarded vehicle to leave the rally.
Khan said while it appeared Bhutto was shot, it was unclear if her bullet wounds were caused by a shooting or shrapnel from the bomb.
The suicide attack left at least 14 dead and 40 injured, Khan told CNN in a telephone interview.
The attacker is said to have detonated a bomb as he tried to enter the rally where thousands of people gathered to hear Bhutto speak, police said.
Video from the scene of the blast broadcast from Geo TV showed wounded people being loaded into ambulances.
Up to 20 people are dead, the report said.
Earlier, four supporters of former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif died when members of another political party opened fire on them at a rally near the Islamabad airport Friday, local police said.
Several other members of Sharif's party were wounded, police added.
While President Pervez Musharraf has promised free and fair parliamentary elections next month, continued instability in the tribal areas and the threat of attack on large crowds has kept people from attending political rallies and dampened the country's political process.
Campaigners from various political groups say fewer people are coming out to show their support due to government crackdowns and the threat of violence.
It is intended to ask the KLCC Management to revise their current parking rate, and to show to them that many concerned members of the public are aware and agree that the current rate is just too expensive, if not unreasonable.
plzzzzz we want free members
To:The Honorable Members of The Indiana General Assembly And The Honorable Governor Mitchell E. Daniels
1. At the time we received the class notice, (July, 2005) we were not informed and were not aware we had unpaid wages; not by Class Counsel, the Defendants, the Superior Court, the Class Notice or the Settlement Agreement.
2. Now, we clearly understand we have unpaid, due wages that are owed to us by the Defendants. For many, these unpaid wages amount to thousands of dollars per class member. The penalties, damages and fines created by Defendants failure to pay these wages, in many instances, amounts to several million dollars per class member.
UNION CLASS MEMBERS:
a. Overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
b. Wages under CLC §226.7-(Meal Delay Payments)
c. Overtime on State Meal Delay Payments.
d. Other unpaid wages at www.reversegreenberg.com
NON-UNION CLASS MEMBERS
a. Overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
b. Wages under CLC §226.7 (Meal Delay Payments)
c. Overtime on State Meal Delay Payments.
d. Other wages outlined at www.reversegreenberg.com
3. The settlement relieves Defendants from the legal obligation to pay our unpaid wages. The settlement forever bars us from collecting these unpaid wages if we also happen to claim they are “late.” This is of course absurd! If the wages are past due AND unpaid, how could they be anything but late? This settlement is a sham. It was designed exclusively to help the Defendants evade paying our wages, as well as the liability for failing to pay them.
4. This settlement undermines the purpose of the California wage statutes: to secure prompt payment of our earned and due wages. This is an unfair and deceitful tactic by the Defendants to willfully avoid paying us our unpaid due wages through obfuscation and diversion. If successful in their attempts, they will render the concept of due dates and wages meaningless for motion picture employees.
5. The Defendants were well aware of the existence of our unpaid wages and their obligations to pay them. If they weren’t, they should have been. Many of these Defendants are the largest, most sophisticated media conglomerates in the world.
6. During the entire lawsuit, the existence and status of our unpaid wages was never brought before the Superior Court. This despite 5 years of litigation, the production of over 200,000 pages of documents, the involvement 900 Defendants, and the participation of two Superior Court Judges. We don’t think it is fair our unpaid wages were completely ignored during the litigation only to have them released during settlement, regardless of what label is attached to them. (late, underpayment, non-payment, etc.)
7. We understood the Class Notice addressed wage payments that were paid in full but paid late. But, we DID NOT understand the settlement applied to those of us who still had unpaid wages. Our silence did not and does not equal support. We never would have agreed to this settlement if we knew we had unpaid due wages and if we knew this settlement would be used to prevent us from collecting those wages.
8. So, if the settlement releases our unpaid wages and/or how we choose to enforce their payment, why were these wages never addressed in this lawsuit? We think Class Counsel bears this responsibility.
9. When Class Counsel chose to file this lawsuit and bind us to its class action terms, they had (and still have) a responsibility to vigorously represent and protect all of our interests and claims that might reasonably be affected by this lawsuit. If Class Counsel wanted to release our unpaid wage claims, they could and should have been aware we had unpaid wages in the first place. We don’t think releasing our unpaid wages was in our best interest, but, at a minimum, before they released ANYTHING on our behalf, Class Counsel had an obligation to ensure that our unpaid wages were paid.
10. Class Counsel breached their duty to properly represent us. Class Counsel had no authority to represent, let alone release our FLSA claims as there was never an FLSA cause of action. If we hired them to sell our car, we certainly wouldn’t expect them sell our house too.
11. Currently, there are no published California Appellate opinions regarding application of California Labor Code §206 & §206.5 to large class action wage and hour disputes. In the event you decline to reverse this Superior Court decision, we will request that the Appellant petition the Court for a rehearing, and if necessary, petition the Supreme Court for a grant of review. We believe the California Supreme Court would welcome the opportunity to clarify the rights of employees under Labor Codes §206 and §206.5, especially in the context of a class action lawsuit.

A recent "meeting" of the RPSGB has decided to increase membership fees despite a large number of the membership being clearly against this action.
The RPSGB has seemingly mismanaged funds and, in my opinion, is asking its members to pay for these errors.
This is not fair and is not how things should be done!
