    I'm sure that I have signed a petition before, but I can't recall what it was.

    I do however very clearly remember refusing to sign a petition about Hawaii's proposed smoking bans, even as my husband signed it. I was completely for the bans, particularly when it hadn't been but a few months since some chicky with a cigarette in her hand at the bar burned me and then scowled at me and walked away. That along with the horrible smell my clothes acquired just for going out dancing, made me all for the bans.

    Although that might cost Castle its star and lose Zoe from Suits. So maybe not.
    Apparently, Netflix is in talks to revive it and produce another season, just as they are doing with the cancelled favorite 'Arrested Development'. I hope it happens, but it also just wouldn't be the same without some of the characters who died in the movie. I dunno. We'll see what happens.

    I don't watch those other two shows you named, so screw 'em

    I've signed some petitions from time to time, can't remember what for.

    Only online petition I ever signed was Vets Against the War in Iraq.

    Not that I can remember. The petitions I've been presented were either against my political and societal beliefs, or (and I know I'm going to catch flak for this) the person presenting the petition looked like a total ****wad. I'm sorry, but I'm not going to sign anything given to me by a white guy with dreadlocks who smells like the inside of a cats ass.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Yes. In fact I Recently signed one for an animal cruelty measure that will be on the ballot.

    My grandma is a crazy cat lady. She must have at least 13 of those things, and the smell is horrendous because they **** everywhere. I started to dry heave just thinking about it.

    You can probably guess...

    God, how patient are Thy poor! These corporations and masters of manipulation in finance heaping up great fortunes by a system of legalized extortion,
    and then exacting from the contributors--to whom a little means so much--a double share to guard the treasure!

    I signed a petition to install a traffic light at the corner of my street. Unfortunately we did not get a traffic light until after someone was killed. Very sad that it took a tragedy before we were listened to.
