"Maples and elderberry are especially helpful at removing the effects of pollution. They are oxygenators. There are more. Water can be cleaned with bullrush, cattails, lotus, and it's either sweetflag or blueflag, one of them is good, the other is poisionous, so do the research first!" Some cherries, elderberries, and Maples can reduce Syanide in the soils. I've heard that a major problem with pollution is the syanide. Maples are excellent when planted close to water, as they will clean it and the soil all at the same time. Sago Palms are also good. It doesn't take long to do a search for plants to combat pollution, and it will help so many people in the long run. Please try it. Research the plants thoroughly so that you know how to handle them, plant them, etc... If they're poisonous to handle, find an alternative. There are plenty of them out there. Please think about this now, at planting time. Happy Spring!!! Have a Great weekend. Respectfully and sincerely, Electra

We, the Undersigned, endorse the following petition:
Copyright - Get Rid of the 3-year Statute of Limitations
Target: Congress
Our 'Protected Rights' are supposed to be for 70 years after our death, they have drastically reduced this to a mere 3 years, and that's only if we catch someone stealing our writings, art, etc..., in time to file a Lawsuit.

The STATUTE of LIMITATIONS has no place in our society as it promotes Infringement, and proves that our Laws don't work for US.

Please help to restore our Copyright Protections to, 
"70 years past Death, not 3 years past theft"

Thank you for your time and consideration.

I may have a few leads on tracking down the Artists that got ripped off in the 60's and 70's. Maybe now we'll be getting somewhere with changing this Law.

Thank you ALL for your help and support!

Discouraged!!!
This site claims to have over a million people on it. More than 7000 in my network alone. My Petition has been averaging 10 signatures a day. Civil Rights don't seem to be much of a priority these days. The Government takes them away as they see fit, and everyone sits back and allows it to happen, they only get upset if it affects them personally. Where's the Justice going to come from if not from the people?
Congress could care less. They're probably getting a kick out of watching me fail, so are the Infringers. The large Corporations are going to keep getting richer at the expense of the little guy. Our art, writings, etc... are up for grabs. The lack of signatures and enthusiasm on this subject are appalling. Why don't we just let them take all of our Rights and see who cares then.
Who cares that someone elses rights are being trod upon and then taken away, right?
I've estimated that in order to get the amount of signatures that I felt that I needed to get this through Congress it would take approximately 95.75 years or more at this rate. I'm determined to get signatures. I've worked hard on this! I researched the Laws for Christs sake, and I have made no difference because of the indifferece of the masses. Why should I bother with this Issue anymore? No one really cares if someone gets ripped off, what matters is that it didn't happen to them.
Every time I believe that things are picking up they come to a screaching halt. It's more than a little bit discouraging, it's heartbreaking. I expected more support on this. I should've just sat back and complained about it. It would've gotten more attention that way, instead I stupidly set out to try to change things. To make a real difference. To make things right.
It's practically the same thing as somebody breaking into your home while you're away and taking whatever they want, except that what they're stealing with Infringement is a part of your very soul. The essence of your existence. Your job, your livelihood, the reason that God put you on this earth for.
I guess the joke is on me, huh?
Let them win. Let them take away our creative ambition, but don't complain when the Writers stop writing, Artists, stop painting,etc... No pictures. No Movies. No Books. No Games. No 'Art' of any kind, where's the entertainment going to come from then?
All of us are affected by it, but no one dare try to save it, all you'll get is opposition.
Next time you watch a movie, play a game, hear a beautiful song, remember the people that made it possible. They're the ones who are getting screwed!
Thank you for those of you who have cared enough to sign.
Respectfully and sincerely, Darlene
