I am sharing this Petition because I like bees, and I think they are necessary to our ecosystem and/or food chain and therefore worth protecting. This message about steps we can take to help bees came to my inbox via Credo Action, because apparently, we need to beg the EPA to do right by us and not the manufacturers of pesticides.
Gun reform, and common sense laws that would help to keep our communities safer have been on all our minds lately, hasn’t it? Well, I got this email today,so I thought I would share the petition with you guys in light of tomorrow’s vote.
On January 8, 2011, a mentally ill young man shot me in the head. He killed six of my constituents. He wounded twelve others. Continue reading
Here is a petition that makes total sense. Especially in light of all the conservative hand wringing about how “entitlements” are running up the debt, also at a time when prescription drug prices are way out of control, and definitely a burden on our Seniors.
Check out the latest liberal, yet sensible nugget from my inbox, courtesy of Minnesota Senator Al Franken:
Here’s the best idea you’ll hear all day: Medicare should be able to negotiate with the drug companies to get better prices on prescriptions for seniors.
This simple reform would cut spending — by around $24 billion a year — without hurting seniors. In fact, seniors would end up paying less for their prescriptions. Continue reading
I love take out food as much as the next gal, but not the Styrofoam containers that it often comes in. Aside from immediate health concerns, it sits in a landfill forever, long after you finished your meal and thrown it away. Below is an email from Drew Hudson of the organization Environmental Action, who created a petition on SignOn.org, the nonprofit site that allows anyone to start their own online petition, regarding his idea on the issue.
Dear MoveOn member,
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg wants to ban plastic foam food packaging, because, as he said, it is “virtually impossible to recycle and never biodegrades.” New York must deal with about 20,000 tons of plastic foam waste every year, costing taxpayers and the environment. We need to support Mayor Bloomberg’s initiative.
That’s why I created a petition on SignOn.org to the New York City Council, which says:
Please ban the use of plastic foam packaging. It cannot be recycled and never degrades, making it an environmental hazard. Continue reading
Once again, the country is held hostage, all because of a pledge given to a humorless minion of the super rich. Which is exactly the reason to not stop applying pressure, even if the election is over! Not as fun as the “kick Grover Norquist in the dick” petition, but I think its well worth signing! Had to share with you, Kids!
Grover Norquist’s iron grip on Republicans in Congress is so strong that they’re afraid to raise taxes on billionaires even one red cent.
But now some Republicans claim they’re coming to their senses about Grover and his anti-tax pledge.If you agree that it’s time to stop protecting tax cuts for the rich, then sign our petition to Boehner, Cantor and the Republicans.
As you know, I like to pass on worthwhile emails and requests to sign petitions on this site. In light of the wave of national disgust with the NFL over calls “scab” referees made in some football games last weekend, I thought I’d share a very interesting entry from my Inbox with you!
Please join with Daily Kos and our partners at Workers’ Voice in petitioning the National Football League to immediately end its lockout of professional, union referees. Continue reading

Dear MoveOn member,
Antibiotics are pumped into cows, chickens and pigs so they can survive in cramped, filthy feedlots and to make them grow faster. The more antibiotics our livestock eat, the more drug-resistant bacteria become, putting us at risk from deadly “superbugs.” Continue reading
