BREAKING: Save Endangered Blue Whale Currently Trapped in Fishing Net (Petition)

Animal Petitions.org
June 28, 2016

A blue whale is currently fighting for it's life in a fishing net, prompting a massive rescue effort.

The endangered whale is towing about 200 feet of net and is slowly dying.

Demand an immediate ban on fishing nets in the vicinity of all blue whale habitat and a full effort to rescue this innocent creature.

A 70-80 foot blue whale was spotted off the coast of California, entangled in crab lines and dragging several buoys.
Rescue efforts by the Orange County Sheriff's Department Harbor Patrol and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have so far proven unsuccessful.

While the whale can swim for long distances while entangled, it is slowly dying and must be rescued soon.

NOAA has confirmed 22 other cases of fishing line entanglement off the coast of California, Oregon and Washington recently.
In the majority of cases, rescue efforts were unsuccessful.

Please sign at the link below and demand an immediate ban on fishing nets in this coastal area and a full scale effort to save this magnificent mammal.

Sign the Petition: Make Voting Easier Across the Country

Democratic Governor's Association via Daily Kos
June 27, 2016

While Republican Governors across the country are working hard to disenfranchise voters before the upcoming elections, Democratic Governors are doing the opposite - they are making it easier to vote.

In Oregon, automatic voter registration took effect in time for the May primaries -- where Oregonians will vote by mail for all races.
Oregon joins Washington and Colorado as the only three states offering vote by mail options.

In California, Governor Brown signed legislation that automatically registers eligible voters when they obtain or renew their driver's license at the DMV.
Once enacted, this could help 6.6 million Californians register with ease.

Pennsylvania, led by Governor Wolf, became the 23rd state in the nation to offer internet voter registration.
Governor Wolf promised online voter registration during his campaign for Governor and as of December 2015, more than 50,000 people have used the online application to either register or update their voter information.

In Vermont, Governor Shumlin signed legislation to allow same-day voter registration, becoming only the 14th state to do so.
Vermont has also begun to implement online voter registration.

Everyone should have the right to vote - and it should be free of arbitrary barriers meant to block Democratic votes.

Sign the petition and join the Democratic Governor's Association (DGA) as they fight to make voting easier across the country.

Live Fox Cub Fed to Hounds - Punish the Killer Now (PETITION)

Animal Petitions.org
June 27, 2016

Video footage has emerged that seems to show live fox cubs being fed to dogs.
The footage, allegedly from South Herfordshire Hunt Kennels, in Herfordshire, U.K., shows a man taking a fox cub into the kennels, followed by loud barking.
The man is then shown disposing of the fox cub's body.
This practice is known as "cubbing" and is intended to teach the dogs to kill.

Fox hunting is banned in the U.K. but hunters are allowed to pursue drag hunting -- where hounds follow an artificial scent trail.
Intentionally killing foxes is illegal, but accidentally killing foxes is not.
There have previously been allegations that fox hunting kennels engineer "accidental" encounters with foxes.

Three people have already been arrested and released on bail based on the video.
The kennel is closed and is under investigation.
However, the only way to guarantee that the people responsible are prosecuted is to make it clear that cruelty against animals will not go unnoticed

Please sign our petition and demand the prosecution of the people responsible for feeding fox cubs to hounds.

Petition at:

So who would YOU like to see as Hillary Clinton's running mate?

My choice is Elizabeth Warren
IMO, choosing her would unite the Democratic Party. and Warren would "destroy" whoever Trump picks as his running mate (in the Vice-Presidential debates)

If none of the posted choices appeals to you, please post a reply naming your choice.

Sign the petition: Tell Congress to take action vs assault weapons

Move On.org
June 24, 2016

Speaker Ryan ignored our pleas and the pleas of our #gunsafety champions and adjourned the U.S. House.
But we will continue the fight on their return to Washington, D.C., and deliver your message after the Fourth of July weekend.
So please continue to sign on.

To be delivered to Speaker Ryan and the House of Representatives

"We Call on You to Take Action Against Gun Violence and Schedule Votes on the Following Measures:
-- Expand background checks on gun sales and strengthen the background check system.
-- Give the Department of Justice an avenue to block the sale of guns to suspected
terrorists with a robust due process and appeals system in place
-- Close the Charleston loophole that allowed the Charleston shooter to purchase his
weapons because his background check hadn't been completed within three days,
weapons he then used to kill nine people in their place of worship
-- Ban military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines."

What's your favorite line or scene from The Commitments?

Elvis is not soul.

(defensively) Elvis is God!

I never pictured God with a fat gut and a corset singing "My Way" at Caesar's Palace.

I love the scene where one of the girl singers pushes Deco off the top of the piano.

What's your favorite line from Sleeper?

Pass the celery.

What's your favorite line from Get Shorty?

You don't know me...You only think you do.

Dog With Artery Exposed By Six Pound Chain Deserves Justice

Animal Petitions.org
June 17, 2016

A South Carolina dog was reportedly found with a six-pound chain wrapped around her neck, causing her main artery to be exposed.

The one-year-old pit bull terrier, named Roxanne, was barely alive and her head was swollen beyond belief.

Veterinarians had to use bolt cutters to get the chain off, then Roxanne was rushed for emergency surgery where 95 percent of her neck was stitched up.

They stated that her entire neck was open and bleeding from the chain that was slowly choking her to death.

The veterinarians and rescue team that are assisting Roxanne with her fight to survive say that they have notified authorities of the horrific abuse.

So far, it would appear that this innocent dog's abuser is still at large.

Please sign this petition urging authorities to utilize all resources to find and prosecute this cruel abuser to the maximum extent.
