Every little bit: This weeks Action Items....

...It may not seem like much, but every little bit helps, right? I sign hundreds of petitions a week, online, because at least I'm adding my name to causes I believe in. What happens next, well, who knows. But why not? So, here are a number of petitions that I've recieved via email, that you can very simply go online and sign, if you agree:

Privacy and Freedom:
· Dick Cheney and Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA) have agreed that the government should be able to access Americans' conversations and emails without getting an individualized warrant.
· Under the guise of responding to the NSA spying scandal, the Bush administration and its allies in Congress are actually pushing for new ways to invade your privacy, with unprecedented and dangerous spying legislation crafted under Dick Cheney’s supervision. Petition 1, 2, and 3.

Media Consolidation:
· The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has begun rewriting long-standing rules meant to keep a single company from buying up too many television stations, radio stations and newspapers in individual markets and they are asking for the public’s comments on these possible changes. Petition

Global Warming:
· Tell the government it’s a priority
· Ask Bush to see An Inconvenient Truth:

The Environment:
· Boycott Exxon until they stop driving the effort to drill in the Arctic Refuge! Petition
· The US has a serious nuclear waste problem, and like the rest of the world, we have found no solution. Nonetheless, the White House is proposing a giant program to import and reprocess foreign spent fuel. This will increase the amount of highly radioactive waste the US would have to permanently store Petition

It is kind of interesting that Sherman is just a subsite of Family.org, and pretty extreme christian right organization.
