Petition Tag - money
Our country is really hurting financially. In fact the government doesn't even have enough gold to back up the money that is printed everyday.
It is unbelievable how busy the unemployment lines are. The jobs are all leaving the country and our economy is sinking down into a pit hole.
The government bailed out many business places against the will of the people. We as Americans have been abused by congress as they go against the voices of Americans, congress has caused a great part of this recession and why should we allow these people to take our future and monies from our children especially when the congress has decided to give banks the run and say to create mortgages for the lower income people to have homes , but also have the fed banks write loans like 80/20 loans with no money down yet the loans were either compromised to go either way especially when a family wanted a thirty year fix rate they would get one but the trick was either on the regular primary note or the junior loan which was set at a high rate locked in for 30 years at 13%.
Then told with two mortgages once you were signed into it later you wouldn`t be able to refinance because you have one loan even though you have two mortgages, then they gave you a two year arm at 7.0250% nthen after two years up it went. They used language to make you feel as though you had a good mortgage fix for thirty years, but no where to be found on the primary note. The language was the killer and people trusted the lender and they took millions for the money,and now the bail out money is buying the mortgages back.
Here are some facts straight from government statistics. We spend approximately 50 billion dollars on the war on terror. This war only had approximately 1700 deaths last year and 70 of them were us citizens. Remember these stats as you read along.
Now the leading cause of American deaths is heart disease which kills 450,000 Americans every year. The government only puts 2 billion in research on this.
What do you believe the war is really about?
Stop Dangerous ID in Virginia.
Corporate America and the banking institutions have been REWARDED WITH OUR MONEY for their irresponsible decisions.
Meanwhile, they are hoarding the money and not lending it out to help stimulate the economy and may be paying it out to their executives in bonuses (which is prohibited).
UPDATE 11/28/08: AIG to pay "retention bonuses" to executive bigwigs after they promised that no bonuses would be paid!

As Americans we have all bought into the American Dream. Everyone wants to make a better life and have a little more. But keeping up with the Jones’ has finally caught up with us.
So let’s get this straight…the responsibility for the current financial crisis in America, especially the mortgage industry, rests on all involved parties; consumers looking to have more for less, industry professionals looking to make a better income, corporate America looking to increase the bottom line. No single sector caused the financial crisis that we face today. The truth is that Americans are in trouble because they have little or no Financial Literacy.
As a professional in the mortgage industry, I have first-hand experience dealing with those exact people in crisis. I spend 25 plus hours a week of my time helping those homeowners who got into bad loans, are about to lose everything and have nowhere to turn for help. My phone rings an average of 12 times a day, every day, with another desperate person on the other end who faces foreclosure or bankruptcy because they can’t cover all their expenses. Their desperation is overwhelming and their lack of knowledge about how to manage their money is appalling.
In response to what we have seen, two friends and I are starting a non-profit business, Dependable Consumer Counseling, to address what we see as the fundamental problem in this situation: People don’t have the basic knowledge, we call it Financial Literacy, to manage their money. Our plan is two-fold: to help people explore all their options so they can get out of the crisis they are in and to educate men, women and children so they can have a more secure financial future.
We have had an overwhelming response from everyone we have talked to about our venture. Individuals have shown great interest in attending seminars on Financial Literacy in which we would teach them the basics of budgeting, buying a house and the fundamentals about credit. This type of common sense knowledge is not taught in schools. The teachers and counselors we have spoken with have shown great interest in having us come as guest speakers to teach this program to the children who are our future.
The best part is that we want to offer our services free of charge so that they are available to everyone.
So the concept is sound and much in need, but we feel that in order to be successful we need to do this full time and are starting a non-profit corporation to that end. This is where we need your help. We have looked into government funding and it’s either not there or we don’t qualify for it. And we truly feel that to accomplish our goal, our services must be offered free of charge. Please make a tax deductible donation today so we can help to make a better tomorrow.
We the taxpayer's of the United States of America are requesting a bailout.
We are tired of bailing out big business and Political squandering of our tax dollars and are requesting you to "Give A Citizen A Million".
As President Ronald Reagan once said "You and I are told we must choose between a left, or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down."
We at "Let's Get this Right" agree with that statement and we recognize that the US economy is in enormous trouble. This includes Wall Street, the US Government, and every American living on main-street; no one is immune to the impact of the current economic situation.
When Wall Street needs help it turns to the government, when the government needs help it turns to the American people and when the American people need help, it is often too late for us to obtain help because the government has already over spent the tax dollars, fees and fines it collects as part of its daily function.
When it needs money for a spending bill, or a financial bailout, the government either cuts spending somewhere, shifts spending temporarily, raises taxes on the American people or simply prints more money.
I'm against the $85,000,000,000.00 bailout of AIG. Instead, I'm in favor of giving $85,000,000,000 to America in a "We Deserve It" dividend. To make the math simple, let's assume there are 200,000,000 bonafide U.S. Citizens 18+. Our population is about 301,000,000 +/- counting every man, woman and child. So 200,000,000 might be a fair stab at adults 18 and up.
So divide 200 million adults 18+ into $85 billion that equals $425,000.00.
Julia Gillard thinks the minimum wage is acceptable. What's acceptable about working 6 days a week, to not have a spare cent on pay day. What's fair about working in an industry that you yourself can not even afford to buy in.
I think the the politician's could do with finding out. They should be paid an hourly rate equal to the minimum wage and see how long they can survive on it.
I think this would make two things happen;
1: The minimum wage would rise to an "acceptable" level.
2: The only people that would go into politics are those that truly want the job. they would not be their just to get rich and give themselves big pay rises from our tax dollars when ever they feel the need.
The politicians are public servants and as such serve us. So voice your opinion below, they have to listen to us if we all speak as one.

I moved from baltimore city to baltimore county and i kept trying to get a job but my age got in the way every time.
Like a lot of folks, I have a job--I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit. In order to get that paycheck, I am required to pass a random urine test with which I have no problem.
What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who don't have to pass a urine test.
Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check because I have to pass one to earn it for them? Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet.
I do, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone sitting around, doing drugs, while I work. . .
Can you imagine how much money the state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check? Something has to change in this country -- and soon!
Some rap music is really perverted and makes girls sound bad. It's pretty much all about sex, girls, and money. I know some rap is pretty good and has a positive message. But, I can't stand it.
It is filled with sexism. Making girls sound like sluts. I suggest that this music be banned and only keep the clean rap.
Are you a North Carolina resident, or do you know any NC residents who would rather their tax dollars pay for higher education, and not be wasted on the power bill?
UNCW often leaves lights, computers, etc. turned on, even though no one may be using them. This is a wasteful use of electricity.
Recently, it was estimated that over $4,100 could be saved each year in DeLoach Hall, by practical energy conservation methods. This is only one building on campus! UNCW needs to be more responsible with our precious natural resources and our money.
Help us send a message to UNCW, the UNC System, and college administrators across the state!
Although we appreciate everyone's support, we recommend only NC residents sign.

War propaganda threatens to corrupt U.S. media. Why waste time, money and our men?
Those men can be anything they want to be and they are using their time to defend our country.
Billions of American dollars have been used to fight this war. The money can be used here in the U.S. for greater things.
So, I fell that if you want to invest money into something effective, make music, not WAR!
GRS Web Support getting you down?
Ad Design causing you pain?
Since it was introduced in the latter half of 2007, the "Incomplete Setting Charge" has raised just under £39K - Money that could be fed back into Ad Design/GRS Web Support etc!
£39K could buy two new members of staff to help us SELL!
Also, this £39K does NOT sit on our targets but rather helps to pay off losses incurred by The G.

Member of winster since July 2007, unhappy with the price changes, changes in the amount of spins, and changes that make it too difficult to earn prizes.
Horror_Shill01 climbed the ranks of the Hollywood system by shilling out some low-budget straight-to-video horrors, and before you know it, he was out there shilling for some of the greats. . . but, what has he got to show now?
Not too, too much. We're here to change that.
America, Canada, and Mexico are soon to be merged into ONE nation. America's Constitution is to become invalid and a new one to be drawn up and modified after the Soviet Union. The merging of all three militaries and currencies.
The establishment of a NAFTA court, where as if from criminal to civil.
Liverpool Football Club is one of the best and most well known football clubs in
English and World Club football. In the space of a few months we have been
turned into a laughing stock by Messers Hicks and Gillet.
They have not invested into the club as promised.
They have not committed to a new stadium as promised
They have completely undermined the club manager Rafa Benitez
They have not supplied much needed funds for transfers.
They are on the verge of landing LFC with massive debt.
In short we need DIC to come back in with a firm offer backed by the many
thousands of LFC fans and purchase Liverpool FC from the Americans before
they well and truly destroy our club.
Anfield can hold a total of 45,362 supporters.
The target of this petition is to achieve this figure.
Surley we can get one stadium of support?
We need your help.
SAVE BATH’S GREEN CORRIDOR!
£54 million of government money may be awarded to the City of Bath for a new transport plan. B&N.E.S intend to invest a massive chunk of this public money on a 'Bus Rapid Transit System' (BRT), which will run from an extended Newbridge Park and Ride before adjoining onto a former railway line (a mile long stretch of green land), between Brassmill Lane and Windsor Bridge Rd.
This is part of a wider proposal to join Newbridge Park & Ride in the west of Bath, to a Park and Ride at Bathampton Meadows in the east, via the city centre.
The council estimates that the new route will benefit customers by saving them an average of two minutes on a trip from Newbridge to the City Centre, in a diesel, bendy bus.
The segregated route will bypass the Upper and Lower Bristol Road in the west, both of which are both relatively un-congested. The buses will then travel on existing roads in the city centre and the east, where congestion is a real problem.
Why Oppose The BRT Route?
Unproven benefits and uncertain outcomes:
The claim that the BRT will reduce congestion is very debatable. It is basically a decentralised car park scheme which will encourage people to drive rather than use public transport. Car users will be attracted to the P&R which is in a residential area on the outskirts of Bath. The scheme will displace some city centre traffic, but not enough to make a real long term difference.
The BRT will add to congestion on Park and Ride access routes and at congestion "hotspots", such as Windsor Bridge road and London Road.
Through traffic and “school run” traffic will not be reduced by the BRT
Unrealistic costs and high financial risk:
Costs will definitely rise far above the over optimistic estimates put forward.
Complicated road junctions, bridges, re-engineering of major sewers and contested compulsory purchase orders all add up to serious risk which has not been properly assessed. Major works, new to the plan, have not been accounted for within the budget.
Council tax will be raised and residents of Bath will end up footing the bill when the costs exceed the agreed national funding.
Inadequate consideration of negative impacts:
The scheme will have significant negative impacts which have not been properly considered.
An established green lane, habitat to diverse wildlife and mature trees will be destroyed. Hundreds of households will suffer air, noise and light pollution, vibration and loss of privacy. Businesses will be demolished and forced out and private gardens will be taken by force. Local people will lose a significant green space, currently used by many for recreation. The new road will form a hard physical barrier between communities and will be a magnet for anti social behavior at night. Large, diesel bendy buses will affect the character of narrow city centre streets and harm trade.
A 21st century vision should aim for zero on street emissions and put people first.
The people of Bath are being let down by the council’s lack of vision.
Join us in a peaceful protest, as we deliver our petition to the council at The Guildhall, Bath, 6.30, 20th November.
Please choose to save the green corridor and support local people by signing our petition!
My main focus started with Transit Buses in the outskirts of down town Sudbury, As I looked more into the issues there's things wrong with every part of the city.
In 1999 Sudbury, Became the GREATER CITY OF SUDBURY.
So you would think if we are The GREATER CITY OF SUDBURY all town's would be treated the same. Nope! ALL out skirt town buses run on different times then down town Sudbury buses, why is that if were all one city now?
IN spring 2008 the City decided to make one later bus for the outskirts to 12:30. All regular buses stayed the same.
What about the people who work early in the morning? sometimes their late because of traffic or of the roads, maybe we should have earlier buses to.
All of ONTARIO, Sudbury is the only one to have the new transit system...WHY, why didn't they take the money they used from the tax payers to improve the system, with more frequent, and longer bus times, lasting though out the day, (morning to night) and providing a larger range of services, example (whitefish, dowling), Including Sundays and holidays.
Did you know must stores/ restaurants are still open on SUNDAYS/ Holidays..... How are they sappose to get to work....
With the new system, the transfers don't give us much time, when were traveling on the out skirt buses, especially from Caperol, by the time you get to Val Caron, your transfer is expired, and then the drivers give you a hassle and YOU shouldn't have to pay more money, YOUR transfer should be good like everyone else's.
Sudbury is also one of the cities in Ontario to shut their Transit early. North Bay is smaller than us and their buses all run till 2:00am.
People need to work, they have personal lives to be meet with, to live a "normal" life.... what if they work 'til 11:00 and have no way home because some of the outskirt buses stop at 9:00 and so on. Is the city excepting people not to work?
Maybe this would help people get off Welfare, if there was more options or services.
Maybe there could be less accidents?
There are many elderly people who retire in the outskirts, but have no way to get around, and on pension, the can't afford to take a taxi everywhere.
Also Most buses are extremely packed....there's an overage on the college students, there's not enough places for them to live.... YOU think there's enough seats too? there's like what 30 seats on a bus, plus standing? and then people getting hurt because the driver slams on the breaks, and puff the people go flying.

Personal property tax is an unfair tax on the ownership of assets in the state of Missouri.
Missouri is one of only a few states that continue to tax its residents by what they own.
It is time to end this tax, allowing the people to keep a very small portion, of what they are already giving up in taxation.

Congress has singled out smokers for an unfair tax increase- and our representatives went along, voting to raise taxes on cigarettes $4.50 a carton.
That means more money for Washington- and less money in our wallet.
Your voice can make a difference. Tell our Congressmen to stop this tax increase while there is still time- because smokers are voters too!
IMVU is going to render products that only AP Pass holders can use unusable, after a significant amount of community members have purchased it with their own money. It is an error on their end they have not fixed and once fixed, will make a large amount of product unavailable to users who have purchased them with credits, which are bought with money.
IMVU AP Holders do not want this happen. AP Holders cannot trade or sell these items. AP Holders can only use these items with other AP holders.
AP Holders are going to be the ones who will suffer the consequences by losing out on product they honestly came by because it was sold in the catalog. AP Holders should not be the ones punished for select individuals who abused the system by selling Mature products either through the regular IMVU purchasing procedures or via another off-site website.
One of the bugs we are working on right now is that, apparently, [formerly] Mature products can still be used after they are marked Mature. Even worse, there are sites out there that have figured out a way to sell hidden products. So, essentially, they are selling products that are marked Mature. We will be rectifying this in short order and involving the authorities where needed.
This petition is now closed. IMVU has disabled mature products and is currently undergoing a reimbursement process to all its Access Pass members who have Mature Content in their inventories. More information can be obtained here at the IMVU Access Pass Holders Only Forum: http://www.imvu.com/catalog/modules.php?op=modload&name=phpbb2&file=viewforum.php&f=23

Money sucks! let's abolish it! imagine the world without money... the world without limits... working for goods and for good of all...
Wouldn't you like to be a part of such a world?
Let's take a ride together!
As college students we don't have a whole lot of money, so when ever we get a chance to save a litte bit of money it is a good thing.
There are several students that live in the hicksville area who do not dorm that need means of transportation to Briarcliffe Bethpage.
