An effective way to lower energy prices

by Winston Smith Wednesday, Jun. 06, 2001 at 1:43 AM


If you want to protest the high energy prices that the Texas based power companies have charged fellow citizens in California, you can drag the following Republican Contributors into the center of this problem and legally take them hostage.

No Justice, No commerce!

I call for the following 2 activities to punish the Republican Party

1. I seek volunteers to go to baseball games and if you have a seat behind home plate hold up a cloth sign reading RESIGN MR BUSH. This will show up on local and national TV.

2. Boycott the following prominent Republican party contributors


Coca Cola

Pepsi Cola

Shell Oil


American Express

Marriot Hotels

JC Penney


Dell Computers

then call and write them and ask them to relay your demands of the following to the National Republican party and congressional house members and RESIDENT Bush:

price controls for California electricity and windfall profits tax.

an 8 dollar minimum wage

health care for the 40 million people who have no health care

a hate crimes bill based on race, sexual preference and religion

an end to union busting activities

an end to anti environmental activities

repeal of the 1996 welfare law.

and more

You take these companies hostage legally and if enough people boycott it will get done.

They only understand money and pressure. Tell your friends.

If you have to lose money due to high energy prices due to companies gouging you, then your boycott will cause Republican contributors to lose money. Use your power.

Thank you.
