Adam,
I must add one point to make your statement true - the government is us When We Participate - otherwise our voice is not heard.

No doubt, M2. You're quite right.

People need to understand that government is not a bunch of guys in a dark room with cigars planning their next moves to control the masses. Government is what we make it. And like you said quite well, if we don't make it, it will indeed make itself.

Anyways, enough with the politics. :-P

This petition needs to have spelling, grammar, and phrasing fixed.  Muse pointed it out to me.

I also suggested NOT passing this around until we have a clear understanding of the law. Sha is investigating.

My response:

The consistent limitations on physically active youth are driving obesity. Not everyone wants to play competitive sports. And in a city like New York there isn't even always a safe or convenient place to do THOSE. The truth is this is a disruption of a community that drives physical fitness, personal responsibility, community involvement, and environmental awareness due to a fundamental misunderstanding of the issue at hand. Please take the time to meet with us, train with us, learn with us, and understand ours is an art of personal betterment and a family of respect.
Rely on yourself. Rely on your body. Rely on your training, instincts, and heart. Everything else is a crutch.

Rest assured I AM investigating all of this directly, and will have some solid answers on what's true, what's not, and all the "why?" in between very shortly.
