    I don’t get what exactly is to be protested… I mean, what are you going to put on your signs? Everyone agrees that oil spills suck, I think BP’s got the message that obama’s going to kick ass if they don’t pony up and clean up, and even conservatives are calling for better regulation and oversight of offshore drilling. So beyond pointing out the obvious, what’s the objective?

    When are we going to have a protest against stupid people?

    I’ve already got a sign for that one.

    Well to everyone who suggests a different location…where is your event that you planned?

    I’m going to protest your house. Its about as effective, and I’ll get more personal satisfaction from it. Unfortunately I don’t actually know the address and I’m scared of rain, so the first sunny day beware, I’ll definitely be picketing some house in a 9 block radius of you.

    OK…so if I want to come…its at an address that doesn’t actually have a BP station, and if its spritzing, I should just call it a day? Just want all my facts straight so I can get my full on radical thing on…

    seriously though, if this strategy proved wildly successful and ALL BP stations in the country were shut down…don’t you think BP would still continue to sell oil to all the other gas/oil refineries/ distributors? That’s the thing, it’s the exploratory/drilling side of their operation that fucked things up, not the local franchises.

    BP doesn’t even own most of the gas stations anymore. And the very small handful they do own, they are looking to unload anyway. It’s all spelled out quite nicely in that NYTimes article people keep posting. They don’t make any money from the gas stations and you’re buying BP drilled gas at the other stations that aren’t BP anyway. It takes about 5 minutes of googling to determine that boycotting the stations is the dumbest idea ever. It’s almost as dumb as second goddamn thread on this tired ass topic.

    Can I protest on behalf of the town of Pilsen, Czech Republic, Pilsner Urquell, Victory Prima Pils, and CBC Rhapsody the abuse of the word ‘pilsner’ by the Miller Brewing Co. and others?

    im am not offended in the least, let me assure you. just do some diligence and get the address right. if there is beer and pot i will join you.

    There’s a BP right across the street from 5/3 where you can at least get some beer.

    hopefully some of the BP protesters will have some pot…..
