What You Can Do ... and What It Will Mean

PARTICIPATE IN THE NATIONAL OIL BOYCOTT ...
It's ok.  Fill up your tank the day before.  Get those LP tanks filled for the bar-B-Q grill, too.  ...  Just be sure to do it before Memorial Day.  ...  It will send a message to Washington, to the oil conglomerates, and, most of all, to our troops, letting them know that we know  ...  and we care enough to do something about it.

SPREAD THE WORD  ...
The internet can be one of the great tools of modern democracy.  Word can spread quickly, and without censorship.  When enough people are interested and care about something, awareness can grow by leaps and bounds in a matter of hours or days.  ...  If you care, get the word out in whatever way makes the most sense

E-MAIL YOUR SENATORS AND CONGRESSIONAL REP ...
No matter how you may think about the Congress, one thing is almost certain:  They would like to be re-elected.  Letting them know that you have your eye on The War and The Economy, on Big Oil and Washington Lobbies, and that you can connect the dots, will get their attention.

E-MAIL THE PRESIDENT  [P.S.: Good luck ! ]...
On the one hand, there's no reason not to let the folks in the White House know that you know what's been going on.  Of course, once upon a time, you could do that by simply e-mailing the President at  president@whitehouse.gov.  But back in 2003, the White House changed that.  After that, "those who want to send a message to President Bush must now navigate as many as nine Web pages and fill out a detailed form that starts by asking whether the message sender supports White House policy or differs with it." [Click here to read the full NY Times report.]  Since that report, it's become both easier and more difficult.  Now, there's a generic e-mail address -- comments@whitehouse.gov -- but no guarantee that even a staffer will glance at it.

E-MAIL THE VICE PRESIDENT ...
From the looks of things on the Contact page of the White House web site, it's still relatively easy to contact the VP at vice_president@whitehouse.gov.   Since his e-mail address is still straightforward, we're pretty sure he'd love to hear from you.

E-MAIL THE OIL COMPANIES ...
Like the politicians, even Big Oil has to be at least somewhat concerned about what you think, whether because of bad publicity, or the prospect of escalating boycotts.  Below are the contact pages or e-mails for the major oil companies.
