Adios–asshole asked me to add his petition to X-los’s Dashcon Master Post, so here it is:

Rent an entire building for $1,700,000. Fill it with balls. Or get $17,000,000 to remove all H20 from the sea. Send it to space. Fill the ocean w/ balls and make BallPit Day a national weekly holiday

ATTENTION ALL KIDS NEXT DOOR OPERATIVES! PLEASE RESPOND TO THIS TRANSMISSION! I HAVE AN UPDATE!

This is Numbuh 1995 again and I’m here to bring in an update from the petition. 

We’re almost up to 11,000 Signatures, and while that number is huge and impressive. We still need A LOT more before we can even get Cartoon Network to listen and pay attention to us. 

So the next course of action is to send in physical letters to Cartoon Network’s home base of operations describing why this series needs to happen and show them that the fans really do care about this. 

Send fan art, send stories about how Codename: Kids Next Door has influenced your life. Let’s overwhelm them with support for this series! 

Let’s make it so they HAVE to acknowledge us! 

If you can, please send physical letters to Cartoon Network’s home base of operations. Here is their address: 

300 N 3rd St, Burbank CA 91502 

Spread this around like crazy! 

Also if you haven’t signed the petition yet, here is a link to where you can help build our numbers!: HERE 

You have your mission orders now operatives, now let’s do this! 

Four petitions worth signing:

This one is extremely important: the President is required to respond to this if it gets over 100k signatures. This one is to bring Darren Wilson up on federal charges.

Body cams for cops, equally important: the President is required to respond to this if it gets over 100k signatures. This is what the Brown family supports to help create police accountability.

change.org petition: bring Darren Wilson up on federal charges

colorofchange.org petition: bring Darren Wilson up on federal charges

You can also write to your local representatives and demand body cams for police officers and ask them what they’re doing to create police accountability in your community.

At present both women and men who are raped by a woman are never going to get justice because the law says she can’t possibly have done it as she couldn’t penetrate her victims. please protect all rape victims and sign one or all of these petitions!

The debate, now explained with jokes!

Why Net Neutrality Matters (And What You Can Do To Help)

Young Americans [originally titled ‘College Republicans’] is a film that will reunite actors Dane DeHaan, Daniel Radcliffe and Kill Your Darlings director John Krokidas.

The screenplay, by Wes Jones, topped the 2010 Black List [a list featuring the best un-produced screenplays].

“The script is based on a true story from 1973 centred around Karl Rove. Rove, claimed to be played by DeHaan, runs a campaign for national College Republican Chairman. Under the guidance of his campaign manager Lee Atwater, supposedly Radcliffe, Rove’s campaign is far from clean.Their campaign includes a wild road trip intended to drum up support. Despite all the political machinations, however, the focus is really on the friendship between the two, and that’s something that Radcliffe and DeHaan could do a lot with.” [from entertainmentwise.com]

Stop Skinning Animals Alive in China

Animals on fur farms in China are bludgeoned, slammed on the pavement and have their heads kicked in. Often, this doesn’t kill the poor animal so it remains alive for the skinning process. These living animals then have their skin ripped from their flesh while they hang by their limbs writhing in pain. Once the fur has been detached, the bodies are then thrown into piles where many animals continue to breath and squirm for up to ten minutes after being skinned alive. This brutal and torturous fur farming industry in China must be stopped.

Hello Waluigi,

I’m really sorry to bother you, but I’m worried this petition won’t get through to people and get many signatures, and it’s a subject that is something I consider very significant and care a lot about. I was wondering if you could signal boost it? Only UK residents can sign, but I’m hoping there might be someone out there who can help.

Once again, sorry to bother you, and thank you very much.

PETITIONS TO SAVE THE ANIMALS:

SHARE THIS LIKE A BLUNT AT A COLLEGE PARTY

Allow special needs students the opportunity to earn a varsity letter if they participate on a school-sponsored team

My classmate, Michael Kelley, has a lot of pride for our school. One of his favorite extra curricular activities is playing on one of our basketball teams. Michael has shown amazing commitment to the sport; he makes the practices and works hard. 

But unlike his fellow students, Michael is not allowed to earn a varsity letter. Why? Because he has Down syndrome, and our school doesn’t allow special needs teams to have letters. All students who work hard at school-sponsored activities deserve the recognition and pride that comes with earning a varsity letter. We are asking the Wichita School District to establish a policy for awarding varsity letters for special needs activities. 

My name is Libby and Michael is my classmate. Like Michael, I love sports. My passion is soccer and I wear my varsity letter with pride. It’s a symbol of all my hard work and the love I have for my school. Whenever I’m going out of town, I’m sure to wear my varsity jacket. It’s a way to keep home and the things I love close to me. Sadly, that opportunity isn’t afforded to all my classmates. When I learned that Michael wasn’t allowed to earn a varsity letter, I thought it must have been a mistake.

 Wichita East High School is an amazing school in a community with a big heart, so I was surprised to find out that the school district doesn’t have a policy that ensures varsity letters can be earned for participating in special needs sports. This broke my heart and I knew I had to do something. Michael works just as hard as I do, shows just as much passion, and loves our school deeply. He deserves to be awarded a varsity letter just as much I do. I started this petition to make sure Michael, and any other student who earns it, gets the letter they deserve. 

Please sign and share the petition asking the Wichita School District to establish a policy for awarding varsity letters to students who participate in special needs sports. With your signature, I hope in the near future when I see Michael at school he’ll be wearing his varsity jacket with a well-earned letter.
