Stop child abuse!
« on: 05/12/2008 13:38:16 »
Why oh why do my moronic friends on facebook keep wanting me to sigh petitions? the latest one is "Stop Child abuse!", "Child abuse is bad, stop it now!".

Do I really need to sign a petition, did I not know this until I saw the petition? "wow, you're right, it is bad"

----end of mini rant-----

Agreed!

Why not start your own petition? "Stop Petitions! They are a waste of time.....please sign here."

There is already a group called "Knee jerk reaction to person X because of tragic situation Y" maybe you should join that one too.

that petition about Child Abuse or what ever it's about. I would
then I do use Facebook
Rosalind Franklin was my first cousin and one my life's main regrets is that I never met this brilliant and beautiful lady.
She discovered the Single DNA Helix in 1953, then it was taken by Wilkins without her knowledge or agreeement.

This is a group for Katie and Peter Andre fans run my me Lucy.
i knowpeople say its sad but Katies and insercation to me. When i was at me lowist with my depression i would look at a pic of her and feel my confidence come back and feel stable again

Please do not use this page as somewhere to diss Katie and Peter as i am putting alot of time and effort into it.

I've just signed up to a petition to put sex toys and batteries on the NHS. Now that is a petition worth signing.

Yes, especially as I was sat on the washing machine, on spin, at the time.

I think that it's just a normal FB "group" from where you can link to the given petition on eg www.petitiononline.com

From the petition site Care2:-

Quote from: care2
Roxana Saberi is an American journalist who has been imprisoned in Iran since late January. She was first arrested for purchasing wine (which is illegal in Iran) and held without charges for over a month. On April 8 she was suddenly charged with espionage and on April 18, based on a closed, one day trial, Ms. Saberi was sentenced to eight years in prison for spying for the United States, a charge the White House denies as "baseless."

Please sign the petition today to Free Roxana Saberi»


While I agree that this woman is suffering a great injustice and would like to see her freed immediately, I cannot help but think this a wholly pointless exercise. If anyone thinks the Iranian government is going to take a blind bit of notice of any such petition, they are in for a bit of a shock.
