Bloggers Stand Up.

There are a lot of blogrolls on the Internet, ranging from personal blog address lists to very serious organizations. I for one began BARC due to my own personal feelings about the Chinese situation. The following blog rolls on the other hand, is something we should all agree upon.

After reading the transcripts, watching the videos, and hearing the reviews, I feel we need take a stand against Chavez's remarks and begin a boycott. As some of you may know, Citgo's majority stockholder is PetrĂ³leos de Venezuela, S.A. (PDVSA), the national oil company of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. So, all of the Citgo gas stations in America fuel Chavez's tyranny. We need to show him that his words will have repercussions - that we will not tolerate his propaganda. With that said, I'd like to introduce two new blogrolls for all to join: the Bloggers Boycotting Communist Citgo (in honor of the Venezuelan president) and the Devil's Advocates (in honor of our president).

I put these together not for my blog's gain or for any publicity but because I think this is important. Together we can prove that bloggers not only have a voice but an impact on the economy. We're strong and together people will feel the repercussions. Chavez had no right to step on our soil and insult our Commander in Chief. Democrat or Republican, those comments were inappropriate.

Stop supporting communism. Stop supporting anti-American countries. Stop supporting the Non-Aligned countries. No more Citgo. Be a Devil's Advocate.

If you'd like to join, please upload the respective image, code, and then email me at mr.tastic@yahoo.com with your blog title and URL. I'll then confirm that you've uploaded the image & roll and then I'll add you to the blog. If you don't get an immediate response, have no fear, I'll get to everyone.


















About the two images. I've posted these two that have dimensions of 200x200 pixels. Now, for most blogs, that might be a little big. If you want something smaller, just resize the image in your computer's photo editor. 144x144 is widely used but you can even go smaller. I'd upload smaller images to save you the trouble but of course, Blogger won't let me upload any more images.

Here's the code for BBCC (make sure to replace the parentheses with brackets and remove any breaks; there should be no large gaps in the code but my blogger template spreads it out.)

Mr. Tastic, I'll be getting a faster connection to the internet on Thursday. When that's all set up I promise to come back and get the "Bloggers Against Citgo" logo. I don't want to add anything else to my page right now, not with 26.4Kbps. It's hard enough to load as it is. It takes a long time to load your site!

I'm glad to see people angry at Citgo. I've posted about my feeling regarding Chavez selling gas in this country, where he makes billions from it and will use it for weaponry to attack us. It doesn't make any sense at all.

Furthermore, I heard Bill O'Reilly being asked on his program why Fox is still sponsering Citgo. His answer was that many American's would lose their jobs if we stopped buying Citgo. That's no excuse for sponsering it; they sponsor it because they make money from sponsering it, and I don't agree with it at all. I don't see how Fox can sponsor Citgo in good concience. We shouldn't allow anything into this country from Chavez, and that includes both kinds of gas; the kind he sells and the stench eminating from his foul mouth! GRRRRR!

Don't worry Gayle, I'll blogroll you right now. As for FNC and Citgo, money talks. It's a shame.

Little Miss Chatterbox said...

LOL--I love it!!!!!!!!! I will back to read all the details :-).

fetching jen said...

You are doing the right thing - it takes one person at a time to boycott in order to make a change. Spread the word... you bet I will. fj

Sillie Lizzie said...

Thanks for the heads up! I've been boycotting their gas already for months. My 22 year old cousin fled Venezuela two years ago and I still have family there who's trying to get over here.. LEGALLY.. but they can't because the US govt is too busy trying to give amnesty to all the illegal aliens !!! Its all so stupid..

I'll join up with your "Bloggers Boycotting Communist CITGO" blogroll. Can't do it now, I'm at work but I'll come back later!

Venezuela is not a communist country - it's a democratic socialism.

Painting somebody with the Commie brush doesn't have quite the effect it once did. You'll need a more compelling argument, I'm afraid.

Boycotting Citgo is not going to accomplish anything. I'm sure there are plenty of people willing to buy the gas if a few red state clowns decide not to.

Farley said...

Uhm, there is no one more retarded than you.

Neo-Con Tastic said...

Greg - if you studied the facts socialism is the purest form of communism.

Anony - boycotting Citgo will definitely put a damper on their profits. I don't know where you took your economics or business class but I'd request a refund.

Farley - I'm assuming you're talking about the anonymous poster that failed Business 101.

Neo-Con Tastic said...

Sillie - I'm glad you're on board, just shoot me an email. Secondly, it's good that your brother escaped that communist regime.

Fetching Jen - Always glad when you show up!

I live in Oklahoma. There have already been several Citgo stations around here that had to close up shop! So, if these peeps don't think boycotting them makes a difference... well, think again!

"You have to stand for something, or you will fall for anything!"

And what Amercia REALLY needs to do is follow Brazil's lead and develop alternative fuel sources (as 65% of their stations now provide very reasonably priced ethanol made from their own sugar cane fields). If they can do it, surely WE can do it! Then we would not have to kiss the rear ends of commies and terrorists to keep our society in motion!

"Boycotting Citgo is not going to accomplish anything. I'm sure there are plenty of people willing to buy the gas if a few red state clowns decide not to."

That was a pretty dumb statement. Its really not worth responding to. If you are one of the blue state clowns that wants to give money to Hugo, be our guest.

Neo Con: Thanks for adding me to those blog rolls! Christ matters indeed!

Outstanding, somebody finally gets it!!!

We are buying our own doom at the gas pump and the filth in Washington are only concerned with getting elected so they can fill their pockets.

They won't close the borders or let us develope the 400 years worth of energy that we have inside our own country because they've been bought off by a bunch of greedy, self-serving, corporate elites who sit fat and happy behind their secured walls living in their paradises and caring only for their monumental money piles...and making sure none of us threaten their precious profit margins.

The simple fact is we are standing before the winds blowing from beneath the black clouds of the greatest storm of peril this nation has ever faced.

An axis of socio-islamofascist evil fueled by our petro-dollars is building its waves of death and destruction and preparing them to hurl against us not only around the world but on our streets and in our homes.

That chattering chicano monkey south of us has ready allies with minions of MeCHA terrorists that are already sowing seeds of war on our college campuses and in the hordes of invading illegals that are pouring daily across our borders.

There is a distinct possibility that one of his own - Obrador, will take the nation of the invaders completely into his camp and provide him with a ready army that is throughout our land (and cutting off our number 2 energy source) and this, coupled with his alliance with the Iranian AntiChrist with whom he can conspire to turn our streets into rivers of blood.

Imagine MeCHA, MS-13, and Hezbollah all working together to terrorize every city and town in our land and then give them nuclear weapons to incinerate us in our homes.

We got our lovely freinds in Eurotrashland to hamstring us for "being uncivilized religious fanatics and cowboys" every time we try to defend ourselves, and our Russian and Chinese "freinds" who will seize on any opportunity to bring us down so they can be on top of the world.

Throw in Al Qaeda trying to rise up the jihad to kill all the infidels and all of the commie clowns on our colleges polluting the minds of the people who are suppose to follow our generation with complete traitorous drivel about how "this is all our fault and that we deserve to be destroyed" and frankly...I'm a wee bit concerned about our futures.

No thanks. I bike and, when I do buy gas, I'm as inclined to buy gas from Chavez as I am from any Big Oil companies. Chavez has his problems. So do Big Oil companies. Of the two, I'd lean towards Chavez based on what I know right now.

cynicalsynapse said...

While there is a definite impact from lots of people not buying Venezuelan, the financial effect with gasoline is questionable. The message is clear, however, if we unite to boycott Citgo!

Chavez is a two-bit thug who threatens to withhold oil deliveries to the US. A boycott stands up to this threat.

@ joanrenae:
Be careful about the Citgo stations that had to close. That represents Americans out of work. What we want is for them to switch brands.
