I agree sage !!!

Either givie up your car or start to use straight vegi oil.

I believe these to be the best alternatives, of which I practice the first and will probably begin to practice the second.

However.... I know that some are not willing to sacrifice so much. For those still attached to their gas guzzlers I believe buying from LESS EVIL sources is better than nothing.  "LESS EVIL" meaning that Citgo is not sinless on socio-economic or ecological grounds, but is not tied to the Saudi/BUSH situation, at least not directly I believe.  By providing a wide spectrum of protest we can reach a wider spectrum of people and thus educate through osmosis.

Re: link to above article.... February 22, 2006 7:48 AM

Did you know that in 2003 Bush & Co supported a military coup of Chavez (who was democratically elected to office by a huge majority of Venezualans) which lasted about 24 hrs.

Chavez has called for Bush's impeachment. Bush Republicans don't like Chavez's gov't because it is populist socialism, not an oligarchy, which we are quickly becoming.

boycott??? February 22, 2006 7:51 AM

Oil in general neds to boycotted...not just certain manufacturers. Have you heard of Peak Oil? It is only a matter of time before there is a crisis, I want to be on the not panicing side of that. We need to be aware and prepared now, so when it happens we are looking around saying..."What happend?"  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

The diffeance between a path and a road is a big one.  I say we go back to paths.  Leave only our footprints... maybe hoof prints as well.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
