WASHINGTON -- The White House is making it easier for people to press the federal government to act.
It is bringing that age-old constitutional right to petition one's government into the digital age with a new webpage, "We the People," where members of the public will be able to create and sign petitions seeking the government's action on a range of issues.

That's the only plan.
Might wanna get a throwaway email and IP address first.
GOP....paging GOP!! Isn't this what our elected representatives are for????
The White House phishing for the names and addresses of potential ‘RAT “voters”. Sign one of these petitions and Barry’s union thugs will be pounding on your door “within 30 days”.
“Might wanna get a throwaway email and IP address first.”
Good plan. I seem to remember reading here a while ago that any communication with the WH is tracked and kept. I imagine that it will be one way Hussein will know who to come for first.
And what are they going to do to the names and/or computers of the people who sign a petition? Is this just a Janet Napolitano attempt to get “terrorist” small-government people to turn themselves in to her office so we can be monitored and harassed?
Fire Eric Holder and have him investigated and tried for treason.
Fire Sotomayor and Kagan and have them both investigated and tried for treason. These gals both know Obama is an enemy combatant who got into the White House through forgery and perjury. They’ve been covering his behind in SCOTUS, which is treason - giving aid and comfort to a known enemy of the USA.
(AP) BREAKING NEWS: The White House has announced the creation of two new jobs today and reaffirms its belief in the job market recovery. :-)
Does this mean we can finally petition Ubama to release his records to the public?
Overwhelm the system.
Damn straight! We’re taking this one down faster than we trashed firstname.lastname@example.org
So, I guess a 5000 signature Freeper petition for Obama's resignation wont make the cut.
Yep. And post from a Library or somewhere else. This is more like a “Post your conservative petition or grievance and get a free IRS audit” website..
Hey, Professor You Lie! Yeah, you!
On behalf of my grandchildren’s finantial future, I petition you to resign, effective upon reading this.
Might wanna get a throwaway email and IP address first.
I understand a throwaway email address but what is an IP address? And, after you are finished or want to get rid of your throwaway stuff, how do you do it? I’m not 100% computer savy:-(
Would 5000 Freepers sign a petition asking The Barry to step down?
Can we petition him to resign.....
It's just a ploy to collect the names of Bitter Clingers and other dissenters so they can be dealt with later.
We’ve had this system of e-petitions here in the UK for a few years now. The previous new Labour socialists introduced it to try to make themselves look democratic but then ignored every petition. The new coalition have changed the rules so any petition exceeding 100,000 signatures has to be passed to the parliamentary committee for debate in the House of Commons.
If the US system doesn’t have this last bit included, it’ll be about as much use as a chocolate teapot.
Its just more of the same old Obama. He’s already done this sort of thing in other forms with zero results. (aside for fooling a handful of morons into thinking he really cares what they think)
A simple two word petition for redress of grievances...”Shrink Thyself”
But no way in hell I’d post is on a government run “suggestion box.”
We the People hereby petition the Congress of the United States to appoint an independent Special Prosecutor, with full investigative powers and complete immunity from coercion, to investigate the involvement of the Federal and state governments at all levels in regards to the Fast and Furious gun running scandal, and all related activity to fascilitate transfer of weapons to, or allow illegal importation and distribution of controlled substances and other contraband from foreign nations across our southern border, or through other points of entry.
Mao Tse Tung did this via newspapers. Then he rounded up the writers and had them executed.
Folk, folks, calm down. The White House is going to pick the "range of issues", I can guarantee you that.
Community organizing is the only thing he knows. This is the Federal Bureau of Community Organizing. There must be a czar in this story somewhere.
Our current White House is a JOKE and I really hate it.....
posting that pic to FB!!!
I think this is scary as hell, people.
Sounds to me like it's going to be little more than a "malcontent listing".
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
*this ='s any damn pet marxist project the dem's are seeking to rob more from the producers in the country.
Fine. I want to inaugurate it with a petition calling for Øbumbler to resign. I think I’ll create it from down at the library...;-)
There are a bunch of PRIVATE outfits that already do exactly that. This is (1) a waste (2) who authorized? (3) likely a payoff to some crony.
Just sign it, W.F. Poo
- Who Flung Poo-
Good we can go there and petition that Obama and Holder answer to Fast and Furious and Holder resign and Obama get articles of impeachment.
And a petition that Obama resign.
And a petition that he no longer teleprompt.
Exactly my first thought. They want your names and addresses for his campaign. The lib petitions will win out because conservatives won’t fill out their information to sign any conservative petition and they know it.
they will have your ip address.
remember email@example.com? they wanted people to report anyone that wasn’t on board with their tax plans.
this would be similar
Go to this LINK and it will give you YOUR IP ADDRESS.
Basically, is it a number that the INTERNET uses like a HOME ADDRESS FOR The MAILMAN.
Everything connected to the internet has to have an ADDRESS so data that travels back and forth knows WHERE to GO.
For example, when you try to connect to FREE REPUBLIC you probably pick it from your FAVORITES or BOOKMARKS (same thing, IE calls them favorites, Firefox calls them bookmarks).
That bookmark has a URL (Uniform Resource Locator) listed for the site FREE REPUBLIC that is actually “WWW.http://www.freerepublic.com/perl".
BUT, to find Free Republic, out on the internet there is a bunch of large URL/IP libraries which take the URL and give back the NUMERIC ADDRESS (IP) which is what the internet uses to weave it’s way from your computer to FREE REPUBLIC’S Computer System(website).
IP’s look like this: 18.104.22.168
I.E. a DEWEY DECIMAL SYSTEM for computers. Instead of card catalogs and shelves, you have home computers, and websites.
And HELL NO am I going to hide my IP or my email address!!!
SCREW THEM. THIS IS STILL AMERICA, I AM STILL A CITIZEN AND I AM NOT GOING TO HIDE FROM THESE A-HOLES.
Plus, I reported myself to firstname.lastname@example.org 4 or 5 times for having “impure thoughts about Obamacare” LOL using my REAL name, REAL address, REAL email and REAL telephone number so I’m sure I’m on a list somewhere already. AND THAT’S FINE.
Come and get me, you fedgov pinheads....
>The White House phishing for the names and addresses of potential RAT voters. Sign one of these petitions and Barrys union thugs will be pounding on your door within 30 days.<
I would invite them in ...
>So, I guess a 5000 signature Freeper petition for Obama’s resignation wont make the cut.<
It does. Thank you, but I don’t think I can figure out how to do it. So, if I have remarks to say they will just have to come and get me. But, thanks for taking the time to explain.
Was he ever a professor? I don’t think so...I believe he was “instructor” status when he taught college classes.
Yes that’s correct. Often incorrectly called a prof by the MSM and various Baraqqi partisans. Another reason to infer that Baraq didn’t exactly rip the LSAT and become a curve breaker at Harvard Law.
He was as much a Professor as he was a US Citizen! Both were honorary, I’m sure!
After all, The L.I.E. Media would have reported the truth to us as they always do about politicians that THEY like!
You are welcome, but I don't really think there is much for you to 'figure out' or 'do' about it.
You can 'hide' your IP ADDRESS by using a PROXY (route your internet traffic to a website that ACTS like it is the final destination, but really passes it on to you.
Doing so is pretty much a waste of time, though, as they can still figure out where the data ends up. There is NO ABSOLUTELY SAFE method to hide your IP ADDRESS. It is a matter of RECORD to begin with.
Because you get WINDOWS updates from the internet (automatically), MICROSOFT has a record of your computer's SERIAL NUMBER, which it uses to FIND your computer. That SERNO is linked with the IP ADDRESS. Your Internet Provider (that's what IP stands for) has your name, address, phone number, and probably your Bank Account info.
Total 'invisibility' on the internet is really a myth.
