Myspace Gas boycott-May 15, 2006

The way I see it-the oil producers have a win-win situation regardless of what we do. However-there is a planed boycott of all Gas Stations planned for May 15th. And while it may not bring financial harm to the producers-It will (depending on mass participation} let them know that a consumer backlash is a real possibility. They are also trying to rid themselves of Enviormental responsibilities by making it seem there is no other choice but to expand their operations into more Costal areas and Alaska. Public Opinions do carry some weight. There just needs to be enough of it to outweigh the benifit of reaping huge profits. The boycott-first seen at Myspace-could be a good wake up call. Employers also could help by-whenever possible-allow for work at home arrangements and/or allow for a 4 day -10 hour day work week-to save their employee's one day of their commute to work.

I really hope it does work. It would be nice to harm there financial means. Sticking it to the corporate man would be awesome!

Thanks CrashnBern and Dieeper;
I think it would be awesome too-to show the big companies that they need to control in their greed. If you have not already-please check on my earlier posts on the subject and the arguement/responses and support of others. A real help would be to spread the word about it. The larger the participation-the louder the message will be to the oil producers. If one day doesn't do it, I was thinking a weekly-no gas on Friday's boycott and/or a gas conserving stay home on Friday's to promote businesses to shift to a 4 day work week and work from home plans. There is talk of those options already for when the Bird Flu hits our country-so why not start early?
