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 Petróleos 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
