Africa has ALOT of problems at the moment. Zimbabwe is suffering under tyrannical leadership of Robert Mugabe and is suffering all kinds of relationship problems, such as racial genocide, bankruptcy from lack of trade and constant wars. A huge part of the cause is the fact that the governments are insecure and cannot govern/be stable properly.
Stable government will generate more money for them as they will have a single currency, peaceful trade routes and less red tape. This will lead them out of poverty into a more developed society which will allow them to buy machines for farming-which will strongly reduce famine in that country! This will actually generate more money for the rest of the world and could even help get us out of global recession.
People in Buffalo county that are disabled or of the age of Senior acceptance only receive ten dollars in food stamps on a monthly basis.
This can't be accepted, because of the fact that seniors and people with a disability consume more than ten dollars of food in one month, and people who are in this age or disability range may not be able to work for themselves in an income manor.
3. Stop NAIS
NAIS stands for National Animal Identification System.
NAIS is trying to be passed by the federal government. This will make anyone who has animals to register their property and their animal. At our expense. This is to make sure that there stopping animal diseases brakes out.
This also stops anyone from taking there pets off there property. If you go to the Vet your vet has to disclose if your animal is contagious or not. If so they are supposed to confiscate and destroy. You have to have promotion from the government to take you animal to the vet.
If you show your pet in FH or FFA you have to have promotion to do that as well. They want you to micro chip or brand your pets. They are going as far as micro chipping rodents and chickens. It has been proven that micro chipping causes cancer in animals. Some animals it would be very hard to micro chip let alone brand.
What this will do if it passes is most people will get rid of there pets do to expense. This will also stop 4h programs and FFA programs. A lot of these programs help keep kids off the street and out of trouble.
It will put grain growers, farmers and hay growers out of business. Vets and horses ferriers will be out of business. Our economy as we know it will be destroyed. The government is already trying to enforce NAIS in Kentucky, Oklahoma and Tennessee.
Proposed construction and building of 12 houses in the approx. 4.5 acres of land and trees bordering Johnson Rd and Lake Ave.
The construction of 12 houses will require a lot from our city's resources. The bridge and roads as they stand are unable to sustain the amount of traffic that will come before, during, and after the construction.
If the land is to be built up to street level this will create a run off into the creek causing ruin and over load on the creek. This will cause continual need for repair and rebuilding which in return causes need for the city's money.
Also, the changing of the property will be detrimental to the wet land and the natural habitat that reside on this land and in these woods.
EaglesBrook is a new housing development located behind an exisiting but separate development, Crown Ridge.
College athletes deserve a stipend for the work that they do. This will help to lower the dropout rate of college athletes!
This petition is drawn up to better support the children by increasing child support. We would like child support to be increased to a minimum of $100 for fathers that are/ are not working and/or receiving a source of income of at least $300 per month. Therefore, some fathers may decide to work instead of depending on state or federal assistance because of the decrease in income. This will be putting more money into society and creating more jobs.

We all know Roger Waters left the band Pink Floyd in 1983 to pursue a solo career but we wish to reunite Pink Floyd for a World Tour. We all know Roger Waters and David Gilmour hate each other (See the Division Bell track Poles Apart). We do not wish to do this against the band's will if they do not feel comfortable doing it they do not have to. WE feel that they should at least have a new album out.
Please sign. This will MAYBE reunite the 70's group Pink Floyd!!!
Fear Factor & NBC have total disregard for the welfare and treatment of reptiles. For any avid viewers who watch this show you will know what i mean, they have in their first 2 seasons on air twice mistreated and neglectfully mistreated reptile ( snakes ) on their "thrill seeking tv show". There first blatent mistreatment of reptiles came on there first season as they dumped several species of snakes ( Boa Constrictor Imperators / Burmese pythons & corn /king snakes) into a box with a human in the event ot overcome there fears of snakes for a cash reward.
As stated by contestants the snakes were " COLD AS ICE " this implies the snakes had to have been cooled to keep the snakes inactive as possible ? yes that is what that means . While doing so this offers the chance of transmitting inter species diseases to other snkes , promotes the chance of a cold blooded reptile contracting Respitory infections ( which CAN kill the animals in question. Now on 3/11/02 there show airs with the intent to do the same . They show there contestants carelessly grabbing fragile snakes ( corn snakes ) and carelessly picking them up on a timed basis to win a cash prize! This in itself is appauling to watch , needless to say the chances of injuring the snakes ex: breaking ribs , backs and causing stress to the snakes which can lead to death , starvation of the snakes in extreme cases.During the filming of FEAR FACTOR the show atleast one snake with its Jaw disengaged, due to handling.Now if this show was to have contestants carelessly toss around any fur bearing animals in the pursuit of " TV entertainment sake" they would be harshly repremanded for there actions.
Now is the time for ALL Reptile lovers to join together to show NBC / Fear Factor this will not be tolerated at the expensive of a reptile or ANY animals to be treated in this fashion. Together in numbers we ALL can make our voices heard and have them understand that what they are doing is no different then the person that doesnt feed the dog , beats there cats or mistreats ANY animal ni matter its status in the world this will not be taking lightly !!!
