1. Tell Fox News to stop attacking Bowe Bergdahl.
2. Tell Sen. McConnell to stop blocking funding for veteran's health care.
3. Help End the Student Debt Crisis.
4. Stop the dog meat trade in China. Demand that China institute animal cruelty laws.
5. Factory Farming - help end it.
Republicans started two unnecessary wars.
Act shocked when thousands or tens of thousands return home with severe injuries and need care. They pretend to be outraged that the V.A. is overloaded.
Really love the troops. They are passionately in love with them, until it comes time to pay up. Example Mitch McConnell.
Are outraged over Benghazi. Convivently forget they cut security funding, right before it happened.
LOVE the troops, but attack a rescued P.O.W. Even John McCain, a former P.O.W., who said we should get him back, is now attacking him.
In conclusion, the next time the Republican party tries to pretend it loves the truth...
The most approripate response is to...
LAUGH IN THEIR FACE.
Sign the petition to fire Arne Duncan, Education Secretary. He pushes schools-for-profit (along with the Koch brothers and the GOP) at the expense of public schools. He pushes the high stakes testing agenda in schools. He is incompetent to be Education Secretary and needs to go!
"Arne Duncan came into office as Secretary of Education claiming that he had done great things for school reform in his previous position as CEO of Chicago Public Schools. Subsequent years, however, have shown the results of his brutal policies of school turnaround, privatization, and parent disenfranchisement. Duncan’s policies have: 1. Not improved test scores. 2. Dislocated children and broken communities by closing down much-needed and beloved neighborhood schools, particularly in African American neighborhoods, despite intense community protest. 3. Completely ignored the input of parents and students on the issue of school closures. 4. Worked to eliminate Local School Councils, the premier forum for parental engagement and participation in the schools in Chicago, which have also been shown to be effective vehicles of school improvement. 5. Created a labyrinthian application and school system where siblings are split up, children who used to walk to school are required to cross dangerous streets or travel via public transportation. 6. Encouraged the narrowing of the curriculum via such policies as merit pay for teachers and increased high stakes testing. 7. Pushed an agenda of privatization and created dozens of new charter schools, despite the fact that charter schools, on average, have been shown not to outperform their equivalents in the regular public school system, and that parents have no input into the operation of charter schools."

It says petition closed.
Too bad. I just discovered this a few ays ago. Thanks, Ashley. I'll try to find another. There are several of these going around.
Here's an update on the petition to fire Arne Duncan. Please sign and share.
Sign the petition to get Eric Cantor on Dancing with the Stars.
Eric Cantor dancing? I think that would be hard to do with a stick up his *ss. The thought of it is kind of gross & the fact that the petition author thinks he's a babe really is gross
OMG, seriously? A babe? Just a BABE who wanted to ensure that people die because they never have affordable access to health care. UGH!
Anyway, I thought it was funny (because of the multitude of sticks up his a$$)so I signed the petition.
Remember when Dick Armey got kicked out for being crooked? He went on Dancing with the Stars. I was channel surfing one night and came across him on CNN. The interviewer wanted to talk about politics and Dick only wanted to talk about his expensive dancing shoes, which he had broght on camera in a box. It was so funny.
I don't know what the deal is with Sara Benicasa who thinks Cantor is a babe? Maybe too much smog in Los Angeles has altered her thought process. I think Cantor is way too full of himself to dance on DWTS.
If I saw that creep on the show I would NEVER watch it again.
She writes for Wonkette and Happy Nice Time People and they are very sarcastic. I am certain she hates Cantor and that this is just to bug the living hell out of him. I KNOW they hate the GOP. The snark in their news reporting makes right wingers livid and insane.
And look, Eric Cantor has caused a lot of grief in this country with his support of hateful republican policies. The least the S.O.B. can do now is try to entertain us.

And did you see some of the reasons given by signers of the petition? LOL.
"This is the most important petition in the history of petitions."
"Because the only way he can win America's trust back is by dancing."
while living in the barrios of latin America...something about people dying in the streets(I am paraphrasing)
"and all she wants to do is dance"Don Henley...
written about Reagan's daughter back in 1981,,,,lol ( patti davis)
I learn the most interesting random information from Tasunka.
Lol Cantor isn't horrible looking, like say Rush Limbaugh. If someone could remove the stick up his butt, then he'd probably be okay look wise. But he's still Cantor... YUCK.
I've never really watched Dancing with the Stars.
I watched it when Tom Delay was on it. I said Dick Armey earlier. My mistake. Delay went a little bananas with it. It was really funny. He wanted to tango on Anderson Cooper while Cooper was asking him political questions. He kept taking his tango shoes out of the box and waving them around.
Cantor is so robot-like. I hope they give him a song like "Psychotic Reaction." Or, "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag." Or something by Kraftwerk. LOL!
I've never seen it either.
Didn't HAVE Television till 2008 for any length of time
Didn't even use a pc till 2011 when I joined here.
Was too busy cruising around the world. .
You're making us jealous, Tasunka! I want to cruise around the world, too. Sounds heavenly. Have you ever been to Capri? That's #1 on my bucket list.
