151. Let kids enjoy music
Well, after many weeks deliberating whether to spend my precious money going to t in the park, I chose to splash the cash only to be halted in my path by my parents. I am a good boy, no drink or drugs for me, but that doesn't seem to matter to my very unappreciative parents who think all children are like me. All I ask is just ten pounds a month, only joking. If you just sign your name I hope it will go a long way to helping me get to Balado. To make this a petition I had to make the subject wider so sorry if I've confused anyone
Thank you for your time.
Recent Knowledge about Mrs. Albert (1st Grade Teacher) having to leave Christ the King School has prompted parents to start a petition to keep her here. We need all signatures to show Mr.Graham that Keeping Mrs. Albert here is not only important to us but beneficial to the School and the Church. As parents we emplore and expect our voices to be heard and considered. This affects our childrens' future.
Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:19
We the students of Manteo High School, hereby request the removal of Joyce Bell from the Manteo High School Bus Driver Position. All of the undersigned students feel that our Constitutional and Civil Rights are being violated, as well as the safety guidlines that all bus drivers must follow in transporting each of us to and from school each day.
We are being denied fair and humane treatment while riding to and from school on her bus #48 as required by state law. Students are being sworn at, yelled at, she will jam on the breaks of the bus to get the attention of students, which has already caused significant harm and injuries to a few of the students that are daily passengers.
She uses extreme profanity with the students, especially the boys, in a sexually harassing way. We the students of Manteo High School deserve a safe and pleasant ride to and from school each day without fear, and without feeling verbally abused during our daily rides. We are continuously late in getting home to our families because she will pull off onto the side of the road, (does not matter where)which sometimes puts us all in danger of being hit by another vehicle. She has gotton angry with some students and has made them get off the bus to walk home. From Manteo to the beach is a long haul, and we do not appreciate her treating us this way.
Our parents pay towns, and county taxes in order to provide money to pay the salaries of the bus driver's as well as several school officials at the Board's level on down to the custodians. We all are under the age of Eighteen, and feel that our complaints as well as our parents complaints are falling on deaf ears.
This petition is to serve as documentation of our treatment by this woman, and to open the school boards eyes and ears. We want action taken now! Before anyone else's rights are violated,or we get into an accident or worse, this woman needs to be removed and released from her position.
The Students of Manteo High School Bus #48
My Name is Edward Goldstone. I am just one of many fathers who has had to say goodbye to their child. The last time I saw my son was July 9, 2000. This is due in large part to a court system that has large biases in custudy cases that give more rights to mothers as a parent. More often than not, the courts note only the father's income, rather than their ability to love and care for their child.
On December 22,1999, at the Abbotsford Courthouse, I was given legal visitation rights to see my son, and was required to pay a monthy child maintenance. Since then, in breach of the law, his mother has taken him and disappeared, denying me the right to see my boy, Austin. With the aid of private investigator, I have searched for my son's mother and grandmother with no success. I continue to pay monthly maintenance. Family Maintenance Program (which I volunteered to pay her through) knows where they are but doesn't have authorization to tell me.
Although she is deliberately breaking the law, the authorities can do nothing to stop her. This is due to the omission of a peace officer clause. Without this clause the police can't help me, essentially the court order means nothing. I am trying to get Dads' voices heard. Both parents should be given joint custody (providing the child is not in any danger) and a peace officer clause be included, to make the order inforceable.
I would like your help to put pressure on the Canadain Government to change these out-dated laws. You could help greatly by signing this petition. Its time for dads to have equal rights as parents!

The fact that a growing number of senior executives are openly gay has led Variety, the entertainment industry's daily paper to conclude that the "gay glass ceiling" is slowly vanishing.
38 new films with gay and lesbian themes are currently in the pipeline and many more will be coming in the near future. No consideration is currently being given to the children viewing these movies.
These movies continue to portray homosexuals as enlightened, healthy role models.
a) The protection of California's most vulnerable citizens, its children, should be the most important objective of government.
b) Although providing an important public service, current programs designed to protect children often times do more harm than good. Far too many tragedies, including serious physical and emotional injury to children and the unnecessary destruction of families, have occurred in recent years. The system must be reformed to restore fundamental fairness and promote protection of children and preservation of families.
c)California law requires cases where a child has been removed from his or her family due to alleged abuse or neglect to be heard within 15 days in order to bring speedy resolution to the matter and to minimize trauma to the child. However, thousands of children are kept away from their families for months on end by unnecessary government delays, resulting in tremendous costs to parents and taxpayers. In many cases, other family members are willing and able to care for these children, yet the current system does not promote preservation of the family.
d) The right to a jury trial is fundamental in our system of government. However, under existing law, a child can be removed from the care of his or her parents based only on allegations of abuse or neglect without the government having to present evidence justifying removal to a judge and jury.
e)This system, designed by politicians to protect children, instead often results in delay, excessive costs, mistakes, and family break-ups. IT IS IMPORTANT TO PROTECT CHILDREN FROM ABUSE AND NEGLECT, BUT IT IS JUST AS IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE THAT CHILDREN ARE NOT WRONGFULLY REMOVED FROM THEIR PARENTS IN THE FIRST PLACE.
f) Abuse of the process is cloaked in secrecy because such juvenile proceedings are not open to the public.
g) Recently, several studies, grand jury investigations, and oversight hearings have brought these problems into clear focus. However, our elected representatives have failed to take action.
h) In order to protect the health and well-being of children, the people of the state of California hereby enact the Child and Family Protection Act to establish the right to a jury in juvenile dependency hearings, the right to a public hearing, the right to a speedy resolution and the promotion of family over government-sponsored care whenever possible.

The head of the National Education Association (NEA), Bob Chase, officially endorsed gay activism in public schools at the 2000 gathering of the Gay Lesbian Straight Education network.
We stand against this as parents of children in public schools and concerned citizens.
Take a look at this bloke. He has the biggest most ugly head i have ever seen. He needs to use a bloody potato sack when ever he goes outside. His parents tried paper bags but they were just too small. So instead they used a potato sack. Born on the 10th of january 1986, he has had a torment filled life. His tremendously big head always makes his head fall over under the tremendous weight of it! even when he was happy his parents would have to say to him keep your head up son, but the fact of the matter was he simply couldn't. The potato sack was brought into play when the world had had enough of this shocker head of his! GIVE THIS BLOKE A FALCON!!!
