    White House raises petition signature requirement to 100,000

    http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/w...-politics.html


    Man all you WH petition lovers not happy with this one...

    And I was going to put one in for a smaller death star (they "complained" the big one would cost too much) with a fix for the 1 fighter issue with the previous model proposed.

    The smaller one would not be able to blow up a planet in spectacular fashion like the old design but simply kill everything on a planet....a huge "bug zapper" if you will.

    I am waiting for someone to start a petition to have all who start these petitions on the WH site (and those who sign them) adjudicated as mentally defective so they can be stripped of the RKBA. I really worry about their judgment.

    Of course, I can't start one. I am mentally competent and don't want to lose the Right.

    Looking at who has responded so far, I am disappointed, shocked and dismayed that none of you have bothered to state the obvious:

    The WH is getting tired of all those petitions for/to do things they (the WH) don't like. And they got their tail caught in the crack of their own making - the one about once the magic number of signatures was reached they would put it in front of somebody who is supposed to care.

    They can get 100,000 Obamanauts to sign just about anything. Heck, I'm willing to bet they'd get at least that many saying the Lindburgh baby kidnapping was a Republican plot to try and stop Obamacare.

    The fun part is when they see that we can also get 100,000 signatures - in spite of people like me who despise those petitions because they are worse than meaningless, they are a sop to placate the untinking into beleiving that they have "Done Something".

    stay safe.

    I don't believe the "signing" any of them does a GD thing. I just think it's fun to sign some to watch the number go up.

    I know that they are only there for show but they are funny to read sometimes. A petition to have everyone who puts their name to a petition deported, that was a funny one.
    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.
