Before you consider boycotting the local BP gas station make sure you know who owns the station first. If it is a BP owned station then by all means boycott it until it goes out of business. But if it is owned by a local business person, who just happens to purchase his gas from BP, then you are hurting the wrong person by boycotting. Don't hurt the local guy.
Unless you plan on giving up on gasoline altogether, BP is the place to buy it. Our local owners will be victims just as the folks in the gulf are. Besides, BP's feet are to the fire to pay damages and clean this up...let's not give them a reason to ironically cry poverty. And by the way...lets make sure the congress repeals the ridiculous laws that allow companies to have more protection from paying environmental damages and the Supreme court gets another chance to correctly deny corporations the same rights as individuals.

no. not ashamed. i like a wad of walking around money in my pocket. i just have not raised money up to an all consuming god status,(which is probably unamerican.)
money is nice. but there are many things that have a higher value in terms of fortifying a human existence.
there is something lacking in a person who seeks money more than anything else.
Great thing about our country is we are free to choose. Unless the socialist obama gets his way.
