Gas Prices

The price of a gallon of gas is getting quite ridiculous, and by my figuring, I don't see it stopping any time soon.
Unless we do something about it.
 
I've heard repeated calls to boycott gas on a certain day of the week, or just boycott a certain oil company.
I've been thinking about this issue for a while now, mentioning it to Neal and the rest of my government class, but I want it to become a national project, one that will make the gas companies and the rest of the nation take notice that there IS something we can do to fight this growing problem.
 
What I suggest is that we NOT buy gas from ExxonMobil.... at all.  The CEO, when he retired, received a $700 million payout from the company.  Now what good would it do to keep buying gas from them to keep giving payout after payout.
 
more on this later.....

Petition Gathering

Well, for a few days, me and Neal were handing out petitions to the city of Bristol and Washington County in hopes of putting James Webb on the ballot for the upcoming primary.  Once Neal showed me what he had been doing, I quickly got in the game, and ramsacked Bristol.  We got Repubs. to sign.  The best thing, however, was how we got them to sign.  For anyone doing petitions running into a Repub. that won't sign for a Democratic candidate, here's an idea. Tell the person that if they sign, they are just getting George Allen a competitor for the upcoming election.  They will sign in a jiffy.  That amused me enough to where we got a few Republicans to sign.
