In België betalen we te veel belastingen en zijn we bovendien nog niet goed geregeerd. We hebben nood aan een sterke federale staat. Te veel belastingen dood de economie van het land. Laten we de kosten besparen op zaken die we kunnen veranderen zonder moeite
On July 2, 1863, Colonel Strong Vincent, Commander of the Third Brigade, First Division, Fifth Corps, of the United States' Army of the Potomac, moved his men, without orders, to the top of Little Round Top, at the summons of Major General Gouvernor K. Warren, and was mortally wounded while rallying his wavering men atop the hill known as Little Round Top near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
Vincent, even from his wounded position, lying on the ground behind the line of the 83rd Pennsylvania, called on his men to hold firm. The line held, and the actions of the Brigade possibly saved the Union Army from a complete military disaster. Vincent's subordinate, Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, received all the glory for the victory, including the Congressional Medal of Honor. Vincent was read his promotion to Brigadier General on his deathbed, and, most likely, did not even hear it.
This petition of certain citizens of Australia draws to the attention of the House the National School Chaplaincy Program, built on the excellent history of school chaplaincy in Australia, which was introduced by the former Coalition Government in 2007/08 with a commitment of $165 million for its first three years. It was endorsed by Prime Minister Rudd who said “they (Chaplains) actually are providing the glue which keeps school communities rolling”.
The program offers pastoral care and spiritual guidance to all. Chaplains necessarily have religious beliefs which underpin their work. These beliefs are representative of the school communities the chaplains work in and they do not hinder chaplains from working with those of other beliefs or none. It operates in 1915 schools and enjoys strong support among principals, schools and in the community generally.
The Rudd Government has extended funding for the program, at a reduced level, until the end of 2011, after which time there may be no more funding despite the program's social benefits, sound administration and strong community support. If elected, the Coalition would continue funding the program in its current form, at its current level of $165 million over 3 years.

For so long people have been taking fur and skin off of animals and sending fashion trends but if this petition goes big then no more. It IS animal cruelty. And don't even get me started on the japanese/chinese as they skin animals like foxes ALIVE! Did animals ever use our skin... NO so they deserve the same in return. I would rather die before I wore any type of animal clothing. If you think about there's fur coats, crocodile shoes/bags, leather made from cows...
IT HAS GONE WAY TO FAR AND I PLAN TO STOP IT NOW WHO'S WITH ME!?!?!?!?!?

To: UK School Boards
Petition to start Hindi in Schools
To the school boards of the United Kingdom:
This petition is to solicit worldwide support to help start Hindi in Middle and High schools as an elective subject.
1. Hindi is the second most spoken language in the world and the national language of India, but hasn't achieved a wider popularity compared to other languages because of our lukewarm approach towards it. Hindi is also a much scientific and advanced language sharing the same devnagiri script as Sanskrit and is fundamentally strong in phonetic and grammar.
2. United Kingdom and India has come more closer in the last decade and economic and cultural collaborations between these 2 countries have also increased. Many jobs from Fortune 200 companies have been outsourced to India and the joint ventures in the field of information technology have virtually bonded these 2 largest democracies in the world. Further human resources and technology exchange are expected to continue for many decades to come. Many travellers and students from UKare visiting India for their internship and higher studies. So, learning Hindi will only help in cementing close bonds these 2 countries are forming.
3. Hindi is also a part of our Indian culture and our kids as well as kids of other cultural background will be better able to know the most ancient culture of the world.
4. Hindi education in Middle and High schools will help bridge missing link between schools and universities. It is difficult to teach primary Hindi alphabets to the University students and because of extreme study pressure they can get 'burned out' and become uninterested in learning Hindi. With a strong Hindi foundation acquired in High school, the student will enjoy learning advanced Hindi in university without any undue pressure.
It is high time that we demand all school boards to offer Hindi as an elective language in their school curriculum.
Hindi will help bring us and our kids closer to India as well as help United Kingdom to better understand and utilize the cultural and economic opportunities in Bharat.

Mrs. Angela Bridgett Bell
I write this letter to you today, hoping that somewhere, someone can offer me some help. My husband was born in The Philippine in 1963. When he was 9 months old he was adopted by two U.S. citizens. He was legally adopted, and has been here in the U.S. since 1963. He does not read, write, or speak Tagalog. When he was in his youth, he fell in with a 'bad crowd' and got into doing some things he should not have done.
He didn't know he was adopted not until he was sixteen. He regrets the mistakes he has made, and he's serving time for those mistakes, but he has paid his debt to society. I feel very deep in my heart that he has been rehabilitated and he knows the right path to take.
Now as he is reaching the end of his prison sentence he is going to be deported back to the Philippine if we can't prove he is a U.S. citizen behind he will leave a heartbroken family: three sons, five step-children that he loves as his own, uncles and aunts and cousin, as well as myself a wife that is deeply in love with her husband.
The heartbreak of him going to prison was hard enough, but now to lose him across an ocean for a period exceeding his prison sentence is absolutely devastating! I am watching the man I love, get deported back to a country, where he doesn't know anyone nor does he speak their language. If he is deported, they will be sending him to a foreign country America is all he knows. I have an 11 year old son who has Diabetes that loves him he is waiting for his daddy to come home.
I lost my mother in December of 2004 and my husband lost his adopted mother in May 2005 she was sick over my husband being deported. So many would probably be quick to say "Who cares? He broke the law, and he's getting what he deserves." But how many upstanding, law-abiding citizens have had someone close to them someone that they love, that has messed up somewhere along the way.
A son, a daughter, a brother, or a sister- who maybe broke the law, or got involved with drugs, or some other type of negative behavior? It's really easy not to care until it's someone close to you someone that YOU LOVE! Then it becomes a different story. In writing this letter, I am hoping to find an ear that will listen, and hopefully be able to help.
In addition, I hope to bring forward others who may share my pain, so that we may come together and with the strong voice of unity, perhaps we can bring forth CHANGE! Something must be done to stop what is happening, right here in our own country!
These new laws are not fair or just!! Families are being ripped apart. It is both devastating and heartbreaking. In fact, it's downright shameful. Just the mention of the INS fills me with anger and disgust. This has become a nightmare for all of us. Is their any one in office that cares about being just and keeping the families together?
Every day we are living with an unspeakable pain and fear that we will never see each other again. A happy family is on the verge of destruction, not due to natural disaster, but due to the new immigration law. The United States is a humane society that respects human rights and strong family values.
I do not believe, and cannot believe, that it will allow an inhumane thing such as forcing a wife to be separated from a husband, and the children to be separated from a father to happen. I wish you can help me so my husband can stay in the United States with me and his children.
My husband has been released from Prison October 4, 2005. He has been at the Processing Center waiting to be deported.
Please support this petition. Mrs. Angela Bell email@example.com
UPDATE JUNE 27, 2005
USINPAC thanks everyone who signed this petition and supported this petition drive.
House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill) confirmed today that Prime Minister of India Dr. Manmohan Singh will address a Joint Session of Congress on July 19, 2005 at 10:00 AM when he pays a state visit to the United States. Dr. Singh is the first Prime Minister of India on a state visit post 9/11. This makes this visit a very special occasion and is of great significance to the growing strategic relations between India and the United States.
House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) in a discussion with USINPAC mentioned that he is excited and delighted that Prime Minister Singh is paying a state visit to the Capital and looks forward to welcoming him.
US India Political Action Committee (USINPAC) is delighted that the Joint Session of Congress for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is now confirmed.
June 27, 2005
Fellow Indian Americans, we must come together as a 2 million strong community in the United States and urge the US Congress to invite Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to address a Joint Session of Congress during his visit to Washington in July.
Dr. Manmohan Singh is the first Indian Prime Minister to visit Washington after September 11, 2001. This will also be Dr. Singh's first official visit to Washington as Prime Minister of India.
Dr. Singh represents a nation that is the world's largest democracy, has the second largest population in the world, has the second fastest growing economy in the world, and has the fourth largest purchasing-power parity in the world. Furthermore, India and the US have shared values of Democracy and rule of law .
Our grassroots message, therefore, to the US Congress is that India is no longer just a regional power, but indeed is ready to be, as President Bush has recently suggested, a global partner of the United States.
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
The most recent world leaders who addressed a Joint Session of Congress have been Mexican President Vicente Fox, British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Spanish President José Maria Áznar, Afghan President Hamid Karzai, Interim Iraqi Prime Minister Ayyad Allawi, and Ukrainian President Viktor Yuschenko.
The Indian American community must come together as an active and united voice to urge the US Congress to invite Prime Minister Singh in this prestigious list of strong allies of the United States who have had the privilege of addressing a Joint Session of Congress.
Support USINPAC - devoted to defending the interests of the Indian American community. USINPAC will be submitting this petition with your signature to the Congressional Leadership in the Senate and the House. So make your voice heard and sign the petition! ACT NOW to extend your valuable support to USINPAC and contribute. Any contribution from you would enormously strengthen our efforts.
PETITION TO THE HONOURABLE THE SPEAKER AND MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES ASSEMBLED IN PARLIAMENT:
This petition of certain citizens of Australia condemns the Howard Government for refusing to run the anti-violence campaign "No Respect No Relationship" that was designed to educate young people that violence in relationships is wrong and must be stopped.
Your petitioners ask the House to ensure that the Government releases the campaign material that was developed over the last 2 years at a cost of millions of dollars to taxpayers so that it can be used by others in
the community to send a strong message to young people.
Public money paid for the development and production of this campaign and we urge the House to demand its release for public use.
Supporting Congressman Charlie Norwood's view on the displaying of the phrase, "In God We Trust" and his stand against partial-birth abortion. We also support his strong faith.

This petition is about the human beings in the Thirld World who are suffring from their corrupted, destroying, and heartless leaders. The strong, and greedy countries place them to get their benefit. The suffering of the Third World human beings has been going on for years and years. Why? All human beings (the good ones) want freedom, independence, and human rights.
The character of Alexis "Natasha" Davis on ABC's General Hospital has always been a strong, independent, if slightly neurotic attorney with an interesting and complex control drives that usually push her away from straight forward relationships with men. Her current storyline has been dissatifactory and and this petition supports the idea for a future and better story line of having her discover, deal with, and explore her homosexuality.
We faithful viewers of All My Children adamantly protest the writing for the character Brooke English.
Brooke has been most successfully portrayed as the "UnErica". Brooke was and should be a competent businesswoman, a crusading journalist, and a strong woman. She was and should remain calm when Erica is hysterical, sane when Erica is over the top. The dueling divas, Brooke and Erica, were and should remain one of the most interesting dynamics on AMC.
The Brooke character has suffered since the writers deviated from the "UnErica" formula. The downfall began with the ectopic pregnancy story, further escalated when she shot a man in the back, plummeted further with the heart transplant story, and is about to hit rock bottom by Brooke lying to her fiancée and keeping two innocent children from their mother.
We faithful viewers PROTEST! Bring back the REAL Brooke English! Pine Valley needs a strong heroine. We want our UnErica back.
Child abuse...Bullying...they aren't the same thing but have the same message: "Innocent children being HURT, scarred FOREVER". Governments MUST take a stand against this.
Me, the creator of this petition, is just 15 years old...Yes, I am young. To most of you adults, I'm just a child. But a child can have VERY strong opinions, and mine goes to this subject.
Even if I was never a victim of child abuse, I have been a victim of bullying for many, many years. In school, I growed up alone, or when I wasn't, I was just being hurt. All this to say...I know the pain it inflicts in people who are at the mercy of the bullies...and I'd do anything for a child not to have to suffer it...
Everyone in the world today is extremely strong but at the same time of an incredible weakness. Everyone in the world today will make mistakes, will lose his way at times. When those times happen... it's support we need... we all need it one day or another... maybe one day, it will be you...
...so today, please sign this petition for a child in who needs support or encouragement. To let know to the government that the world's children are being beaten down before even standing up. To let know to th e government that we all care for the esrth's children and that we want measures to be taken, plans to be made, laws to be created, to stop the young, innocent ones, from becoming heart broken before even learning the true meaning of love....
WE, the members of The Lady Grey Society and brookedmund yahoo group firmly believe that the wonderful characters of Brooke English and Edmund Grey are PERFECT TOGETHER and deserve a FRONT-BURNER STORYLINE.
We also believe that Julia Barr and John Callahan are two of AMC best assets and their talent, chemistry & charisma are being wasted!
We adore the romantic aspects of their relationship, but we want Brooke and Edmund's past explored. We want them to express their feelings with words as well as actions. We want their wealth of history tapped into by using significant flashbacks to show why it is so special that these two characters found their way back to each other.
We want Brooke and Edmund involved in an investigative story akin to quicksand saga. A tale in which Brooke's strong independence clashes with Edmund's strong desire to protect her. Or Edmund's strong desire to protect Brooke puts him in danger and Brooke must come to his rescue.
We want a dramatic portrayal of how this blended family fights to make it work. We
recommend the following issues be explored: Edmund's struggle to build a relationship with his stepson while trying not to circumvent Tad's role in Jamie's life. The unique bond that Brooke and Maddie share. When Brooke saved Maddie's life she had no idea that one day this little girl would be her daughter, play up the significance that Maddie is now the same age as when little Laura died.
The inadvertent neglect of Sammy causes more friction in the household. He starts acting out in a desperate bid for attention, perhaps even contacting his biological mother, Kelsey. The addition of JR and Rosa make a complicated situation even more complicated. With JR floundering about, Dixie calls upon Brooke to act as a surrogate Mom to JR during her absence. Tad and Adam reluctantly agree to the arrangement because it allows JR and Jamie time together. Isabella sends Rosa to stay with the new clan while she visits Noah and Julia. Trouble brews when the two teens take a liking to each other.
Brooke's ex-husband spending time with their children at Wildwind stirs up jealously in Edmund. He wishes her past relationships were not such an integral part of their marriage. Meanwhile, the past is creeping up on Brooke. She's consumed by survivor's guilt in the form of nightmares and flashbacks because she believes she's taken over the life Maria should have had. The couple is really thrown for a loop with a late in life and unexpected pregnancy.
Upon Maria's return, through trials and tribulations, Edmund realizes that Maria is his past and Brooke his future. Edmund and Brooke find new depths to their ten year relationship.
All of us Neopets users must stick together and fight strong! Retiring items is rediclious! Now we cannot buy some of the simplest to expensivest items! Such as Pink Poogle Toy, Tye Dye Lipstick, Faerie Paint Brush, Fish Negg, Wines, Magic Key, Little Timmy Battle Card and Kacheek Transmorg. Potion. Please sign this petition because maybe if we get enough signatures Neopets will un-retire the items, meaning prices for them will seriously drop!
At this very moment across the globe, people are protesting against corporations prioritizing profits over people's welfare. They argue that corporations should serve people, and not the world economy. They also argue that we are living in a world system which has been re-fashioned by the New Right over the last twenty years. These imbeciles obviously didn't do history in their Uni. studies... the "world system" has always mirrored that of the animal kingdom: SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST.
Even as far back as the Ancient Roman & Greek era, society learnt that the weak get weaker, and the strong get stronger. The stronger the army, the easier the victory. The stronger the leaders, the stronger the empire. It was often the case that the weak needed to work REALLY hard, become strong, and then succeed. Today's society is EXACTLY the same... there is the easy option of "BLAME", or there is the alternative: "EFFORT". The difference is that the "Blamers" are the weak link in today's society, being the burden for those who put in the "Effort". It is not a matter of principle. It is not a matter of money. It is a matter of justifying their weak stance in society.
If [a majority of them] leave their sheltered Uni. lives, they will EXPERIENCE what life is all about. And this is what this is all about. For them to condemn an organization like McDonalds, who recruit young people and teach them VALUES at such an age, is preposterous! It is a simple case of "Tall Poopy Syndrome"... they cut individuals down who have made the effort to become successful, because they CAN'T BE BOTHERED MAKING AN EFFORT THEMSELVES. These morons expect us to listen to them when they have had NO LIFE EXPERIENCES... operating on theories rather than facts. Taking their advice is like taking medical advice from a car salesman. Don't allow the minority to rule our democracy... a true democracy takes EVERYONE'S issues into account.
Sign this petition to protect our future. Skip signing it if you are one of the BLAMERS...
For those unfamiliar with the faith of Islam, one of the many traditions followed by believers of this faith is to grow the beard at fist length (from the chin), and to trim the hair around the upper lip and face. Several passages and sayings (Qu'rran, Hadith),
dictate this as divine law. Recently, a young man of Islamic faith reached the age at which it was deemed appropriate for him to carry out this expression faith. Knowing the school's policy of "no facial hair", he very considerately wrote a letter to several
members of the administration, asking for permission to grow his beard to fist length. He was turned down.
Some would argue that an Episcopalian school reserves the right to deny non-Christian forms of religious expression. However, ESD has chosen, of their own volition, to admit students of non-Christian faith to the school.
The following is a verbatim copy of the mission statement of the Episcopal School of Dallas, which appears on the first page of the 2000-01 edition of the ESD Student Handbook: "The Episcopal School of Dallas, a college preparatory school, is a spiritual community whose mission is to educate young people having A VARIETY OF BACKGROUNDS AND APTITUDES [my emphasis]. The school is a co-educational, faith-centered environment, with a strong academic and extra-curricular program that ENCOURAGES STUDENTS TO DISCOVER THEIR FULL POTENTIAL SPIRITUALLY, INTELLECTUALLY, AND PHYSICALLY. [my emphasis]"
By printing the above text on the first page of the student handbook, ESD has professed to encourage students of different faiths to attend their school, and to strengthen their relationship with God. We see forms of religious expression around us every day at school.
To allow Christians and Jews to express their faith using the previously mentioned religious symbols, while restricting Muslims from growing a beard, ESD has restricted members of a particular faith the freedom to express themselves in ways similar to those
that their Jewish and Christian brothers and sisters do.
Furthermore, by publishing the aforementioned mission statement, while at the same time denying a student his own ways of "discover [himself]spiritually", The Episcopal School of Dallas has shown it's true diversity... or lack thereof. Please sign this
petition to support this Muslim student in his fight for religious expression in a "diverse" school.
I believe that some orientals and koreans that move to the usa eat cat and dog.
This should not be tolerated, and it should be banned! Anyone who's eating cats or dogs should at least get a year in prison and get counseling about how wrong it is to eat cat and dog!
This will send a strong message that the people in the USA will not allow dog eating and cat eating in the USA!
