Subject: Totally off topic boycott

Hi all,
This is a totally off topic subject not even related to photography , but I
felt that it is very important as it affects all of us. For this reason I
decided to pass it along.. I hope that you will forgive me . ...
I personally believe this will work.

----- I hear we are going to hit close to $3.00 a gallon by the
Want gasoline prices to come down? We need to take some intelligent,
 united action. Phillip Hollsworth, offered this good idea: This makes
 MUCH MORE SENSE than the "don't buy gas on a certain day" campaign
 that was going around last April or May! The oil companies just laughed at
 that because they knew we wouldn't continue to "hurt" ourselves by
 refusing to buy gas. It was more of an inconvenience to us than it
 was a problem for them. BUT,whoever thought of this idea, has come up
 with a plan that can really work.

Please read it and join with us .By now you're probably thinking
 gasoline priced at about $1.50 is super cheap. Me too! It is
 currently $1.97 for regular unleaded in my town Now that the oil
and the OPEC nations have conditioned us to think that the cost of a
 gallon of gas is CHEAP at $1.50- $1.75, we need to take aggressive action
 teach them that BUYERS control the marketplace....not sellers. With
 the price of gasoline going up more each day, we consumers need to take
 action. The only way we are going to see the price of gas come down
 is if we hit someone in the pocketbook by not purchasing their gas! And
 we can do that WITHOUT hurting ourselves. How? Since we all rely on
 our cars, we can't just stop buying gas. But we CAN have an impact on gas
 prices if we all act together to force a price war. Here's the idea:
 For the rest of this year, DON'T purchase ANY gasoline from the two
 biggest companies (which now are one), EXXON and MOBIL(this includes
 EXXONMOBILE & ESSO outside of the united states). If they are
 not selling any gas, they will be inclined to reduce their prices. If
 they reduce their prices, the other companies will have to follow
 suit. But to have an impact, we need to reach literally millions of
 Exxon and Mobil gas buyers. It's really simple to do!! Now, don't
 whimp out on me at this point...keep reading and I'll explain how
 simple it is to reach millions of people I am sending this note to
 about thirty people. If each of you send it to at least ten more (30
 x 10 = 300) .. and those 300 send it to at least ten more (300 x 10 =
 3,000)...and so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth
 generation of people, we will have reached over THREE MILLION
 consumers! If those three million get excited and pass this on to ten
 friends each, then 30 million people will have been contacted! If it
 goes one level further, you guessed it..... THREE HUNDRED MILLION

 Again, all You have to do is send this to 10 people. That's all. (If
 you don't understand how we can reach 300 million and all you have to do
 is send this to 10 people.... Well, let's face it, you just aren't a

How long would all that take? If each of us sends this email out to
 ten more people within one day of receipt, all 300 MILLION people could
 conceivably be contacted within the next 8 days!!! I'll bet you I
didn't think you and I had that much potential, did you! Acting together we
 can make a difference. If this makes sense to you, please pass this
 message on.
