Crowdsourcing the details

what could possibly go wrong?

so anyway, I need your advice / opinion on something:  I've been asked to sign a petition.  The petition in on an issue that I support (short version: it lets parents, not the school district decide if their twins are in the same class at school, or not), but the petitioning mechanism is an off-shoot of MoveOn.org (no link for progressives socialists).

The petition can be found here.

So, here's my conundrum:  I agree with what is being petitioned for, I disagree with and do not want anything to do with MoveOn.org or any of their affiliates.

I'm catching eleven different levels of shit from the family for not having signed the petition yet.  I could dummy-up an e-mail address and just do it, but it's the principle of the thing.

On one hand, the State legislature is mostly Republican; I gotta believe that any petition from MoveOn.org would be dead on arrival.  On the other hand, it's a good idea that needs to be acted on.

Your thoughts?


more soon
