WTF? Why am I not seeing OK on the list of petitions? here's the link

http://wh.gov/9dc8

It's no wonder there are so few signatures. Not only that, but it's not letting me log into the site from any of my emails.

Not a nice place to live and when the US breaks up, it won't be a nice place to live either.

But as a united Socialist paradise, it's going to be just wonderful - right?
 
I'm really wary of joining or signing anything on a wh.gov site. However, if the petition should show up on the georgia.gov site, I might reconsider.

The petition site is totally goofy. It appears anyone can post anything. It's someone's opinion only. It is not binding. Read through all the silly petitions that are found there. There is even a petition to outlaw Jesus and Moses. That one has thousands of votes (I think 33k, if not mistaken),

Here is the page outlawing Jesus, et. al.

They have a month to get 25,000 signatures or it won't even be looked at, so I agree with you, unfortunately. There are tons of ridiculous petitions on there.

"...The government allows one month from the day the petition is submitted to obtain 25,000 signatures in order for the Obama administration to consider the request..."

Also note that it's individual people - not government entities or leaders - who are filing the petitions; just like us posting on TB2K or facebook, unfortunately, the petitions will come to nothing.

These petition numbers on O's White House webpage are completely bogus. I live in KY and the petition to secede was created on 11/10/12, 2 days ago. I just got onto the site to sign and it stated I have already done so. This is total BS as I have not!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seems like the Obama administration doesn't it want it to appear that enough people want to secede. You are both examples of how they will achieve this. Typical misdirection.

Spammers find way to link .gov domains to scams

Summary: The .gov domain is reasonably trusted by users as being a safe place, but spammers have recently figured out how to make .gov URLs redirect to malicious content.

For almost a week, scammers have figured out a way to make their phishing campaigns appear to come from legitimate .gov addresses.

The US General Services Administration (GSA) administers a URL shortener so that US government, military, and other official links can be shortened to 1.USA.gov or Go.USA.gov. While the "Go" version requires users to have an official government email address to create the shortened URLs, the "1" version does not, allowing anyone to create a shortened address via Bit.ly.

Since these shortened links only point to official US websites, the GSA website states that "the public can click on Go.USA.gov or 1.USA.gov URLs knowing they will lead to official US government information", however, it does not take into account that the government websites they redirect to may not be secure.

Symantec has noted that scammers have begun to exploit some government websites' open-redirects. For example, Idaho's Department of Health and Welfare has an open redirect that will send users to a specified URL without first prompting the user.

This means that anyone shortening a URL like http://www.healthandwelfare.idaho.gov/LinkClick.aspx?link=http://www.google.com could create an equivalent 1.USA.gov address for it, including those redirecting to malicious URLs.

Having a .gov URL for a phishing site would be valuable for a scammer, as it makes it appear much more legitimate, and is more likely to fool users into thinking that the content is safe.

Bit.ly has since put in place measures to close its service to official US sites if they appear to be linking to an open redirect. In these cases, it gives them a bit.ly address, rather than a 1.USA.gov address, and now warns users if the link appears suspicious.
Bit.ly has now responded to illegitimate redirects. (Screenshot by Michael Lee/ZDNet)

However, for some, the damage has been done.

Symantec has looked at 10 spam domains that it was aware of, and filtered through the shortened URL data that is freely available from the US government. It found that between October 12 and October 18, users were fooled into visiting spam sites some 43,049 times.

Contrary to the GSA's advice, Symantec said that users should exercise caution, even when opening links that are .gov URLs.

I'm wondering if I can sign more than one petition to help out other states.
This was taught to me over 50 years ago by a history teacher.

IF the southern states are serious about secession, they only need to hold an election to reinstall govt officials in the existing confederacy, then kick out the occupiers who are currently controlling their country.

When the Confederate States of America were formed, they had a legal constitution, legally elected officials, and were legally established as an independent country. The ONLY way an independent country can be dissolved is by a legal vote of the setting cabinet members of that country. That legal vote never took place. As a result of the lack of legally dissolving the Confederacy, it is now an occupied independent country.

My old history teacher led all kinds of discussions about the repercussions of laws passed by votes of non-citizen congress members. Legally, residents of confederate states are not legal citizens of the union. Boggles the mind when you get into the depths of what that means over the past 150+ years of lawmaking in DeeCee.
