Boycotting Fuel?

Really?

I think people are ignorant when they think that's going to make a difference? Fuel costs go up EVERYWHERE because they have no other option, it's the economy and so far no one is fixing that very well. Boycotting, if it really does anything is just cause it to spike higher. People still buy fuel the day before and the day after and every other day. One day isn't going to do anything, maybe a couple weeks and that's just not possible because people have jobs, lives, hobbies, whatever they do that they need to get around to do. More power to you if you can though you're only ONE in a population of 310,958,000.

If you want to boycott something, do it for something that makes sense and will make a difference.

You want a cause to support? 

St Jude's Children's Research Hospital
March of Dimes
American Breast Cancer Foundation

Childhood Leukemia Foundation
National Children's Cancer Society
Children's Cancer Research Institute
Locks of Love
American Foundation for Disabled Children 
American Heart Association
Autism Speaks

Operation Smile
Doctors Without Borders
Habitat for Humanity

The Red Cross

and guess what....all of those are non profit. They're not making a profit, they're helping people. The stuff we should all be trying to do, not screwing other countries because we thing boycotting fuel affects them. Guess what...it doesn't. It just effects our economy.

  1. Well said Ma'am! If anything, people should find away around buying fuel if it's such an inconvenience! Ride your bike, walk, car pool or just stay home!
