Nope. Just a dodobird
Threads are now merged.
Why would Graham Berry be a troll?
They were referring to dodobird in another thread that was meged with this one.
There was little doubt that the Obama To Do List from back in 08 was fail, but taking a tax the cult initiative to the 2nd choice (legalize pot took first, oh well...) brought attention to the topic to everyone who looked at that list whether Govt., mainstream public or the press.
Petitioning NASA to name their space toilet "Xenu" was never going to work either but bringing the vote count to >9000 caught Colbert's attention. He dressed up as Xenu for two days on national television bringing attention to this effort to millions of viewers.
In two days time this petition has already caught the eye of Forbes. It's only just begun.
Petitions can work and they can help people, whether or not they're acted upon directly.
Lol @ dup loop. Forum accidently the whole thing and I eated it.
Was talking about dodobird who started new thread...
OK. I didn't know threads had been merged.
Should have called it Elron.
BUMPing with my previous noize:
This petition is WIN, even if all it does is garner some media attention causing:
There will be none of the above if there aren't signatures and if the word is not spread.
So, the answer is simple:
sign the petition!
spread the word!
Please ping sites and ask them to write a story about this petition. Sites to contact (please add to this list):
Gawker ("Send a Tip" link at very bottom of page)
Defamer ("Send a Tip" link at very bottom of page)
Here's a link to the OP in this thread to pass around:
For your posting pleasure: (UPDATED)
932 votes last time I looked. If this can be broadcast around enough then the 5000 target will be met.
Vote here: http://wh.gov/4Os
Has Tony Ortega talked about it in the VV? I can't find anything. His publicizing it is a sure way of getting more signatures (and increased efforts by the cult to get rid of the petition, somehow).
at first I was like "another useless petition?" and then I was like...
Graham Berry & Marty have become buddies. Marty is pushing for Indies & their friends to sign the petition. No, Graham's not drinking the kool aid or going to visiting Texas soon for auditing. They both agree that DM needs to go and the cult abuses have to stop.
I want DM to stay and the cult abuses to continue. But so long as they don't get any of my money.
942 votes and rising.

I think John Travolta better make that phone call quick!
I'll sign the E.T. petition.
It will break the 1000 votes barrier for sure today. Probably before 6 hours from this post.

I actually would have preferred the petition ask for an investigation into Co$ rather than asking for a government investigation of the government for not doing an investigation. If the petition is granted an investigation is likely to find no wrong-doing on its part and Co$ will go on its merry way.
Anyway, signed, and as of now its nearing 1000.
It reached 1000
Things the FBI can investigate and should be.
#1. Missing persons. (Heber Jentzsch & Shelly Miscavige)
#2. Human Traffinging
#3. Child Abuse. (Sexual, physical and Labor)
#4. Conspiring against others constitutional rights.
#5. Opening of others mail, holding passports.
#6. Interfering with others right to vote.
#7. Ongoing illegal use of the E Meter. (Court ruling lays out lawful use)
#8. Property Tax evasion.
#9. Unusual circumstances surrounding tax status. (Possibility of blackmail)
I think this initiative is a great idea...for Americans.
I'm guessing all non-American/no-community+state signatures will get thrown out, which seems to be running in excess of 20% at this point.
(not trying to be debby downer, only a realist)
No. Just, no.
Tuesday 7 AM PST and we have just exceeded the first 1,000 signatures in 2 1/2 days. We're on a roll now guys...let's keep it growing like a snowball.
Have sent the link to about 20 of my good friends who know how despicable Co$ is and support me in my work to bring them down.
Again, vote here: http://wh.gov/4Os
Your link is dead. You might want to copy and paste the direct page.
The text of the link is okay, but the link itself has an embedded "[/quote" tacked on the end.
http://wh.gov/4Os <-- Should be fine.
Gotcha. Thanks, guys.
The man gets it thankyou even for teh lulz alone.
tweet retweet perhaps create a # tag?
Defo harpoon gawker
I don't normally sign petitions. They are often poorly written and intended to generate publicity for an organisation rather achieve their stated objective (Sign here to Save the Whales!).
This one however is clearly composed by a lawyer and is focussed on pointing out a failure that can be corrected by the recipient. We want Washington to tell the Federal Authorities to get off their butts.
3923 to go.
Despite whine, I signed up and put my john Hancock thar.
Congratulations to everyone. We have just topped the 1,100 mark in 2 ½ days. This morning we have done 100 signatures in about five hours so the rate is increasing exponentially with the number of sign ups. Soon it will be time to add more layers of PR and communication of submissions before (if necessary) moving over to House and Senate Committees such as Justice and maybe Foreign Relations, Finance, Ways & Means. IMHO we have all made a great start and Marty’s active support has been a major contribution. If Tony Ortega would do a piece on it that would give it another big boost.
Well composed, signed.
I signed! (Spotted an 'aaron s' who did so recently, too. Good on ya, mate!)
BUMP at 1,152 signs. Not bad, but we can do better!
Sign it fags at http://wh.gov/4Os
Only need 1 signature per 6mins now - 10 per hour.
Where have lings, info and stories about this been posted so far?
I'm just curious what is helping to drive this effort.
