Discussion in 'News and Current Events' started by Graham Berry, Sep 24, 2011.
I am sorry but is Graham going to make a call to action on the lack of action?
He has invited it by being dum enough to let people petition him.
Did I write ANYWHERE that he shouldn't have at least tried?
Still, I think what I said is the most likely outcome.
A petition is what it is: a petition. The administration hasn't lost anything by letting people petition them and they are not required to take any action at all aside from some written reaction.
However, whatever the reaction on this, we may be able to use the response the White House will be issuing on this in whatever manner. And based alone on this, the petition has merit.
5,970, for what it is worth.
No, they loose something by putting up a petition and stating they will review it and then not doing it. What they loose is peoples confidence but of course that is only as long as people call them out on it.
My take is that responses so far are "diplomatic". That the Co$ petition has no official response yet is good news to me. Graham worded it very carefully, and the official response will again be subject to public scrutiny by many more people than those who signed it.
Well it got 4 people doxxed so must have annoyed someone.
White House Officially Denies Knowledge of Alien Life
By Nick Greene Village Voice. Sun., Nov. 6 2011
Its so easy to sign this, theres no reason y some1 shouldnt.
im a bit confused...did they change the treshold to 25,000?
6K is on the way...
Well, besides the whole website issues and the fact that the petition date has expired. But yeah, sign that sucker anyway.
Not retroactively, so it doesn't apply to ours. The 25k only applies to future petitions.
Keep firing those poons you assholes!
TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND?
How the hell do they expect a petition to get twenty five thousand signatures? That's going to remove all chance of success for every petition except, like, legalizing marijuana.
....oh, I see what you did thar, Obama.
so since the date has expired does the rest of the signatures not count?
depends on what you are counting them for
Have they done nothing yet?
Other than allow the midget to sweat about what they might be doing with all the time they have had to reply? Let them take all the time they like. He probably has nightmares about the FBI raiding them all the time now.
Nothing to do can be an active pursuit, like in the play Waiting for Goddammit.
<- mfw you all actually thought something would come of this. lol
sorta like your hopes of landing that job as a greasetrap monkey at falafel hut
let me guess
your blow up doll sprang a leak
Yes, we did. Publicity. With all the articles on the net that have mentioned or acknowledged it, we got a good troll. I'd say success was obtained. Gov't-level success? Pfft.
<- mfw you actually believe that
There is this new petition to protest the not listening to petitions by the white house
But this time it needs many more votes
Don't be so negative
Whats the Stat on it anyway ?
Yes, that is what I just posted.
The White House delayed their answer this long so the fibbies could arrange and carry out a big fat co-ordinated raid on every Sci org in the country.
Why We Can't Comment on this Petition about the Church of Scientology

I just came here to see if you guys got it, I just did.
