French Owned Companies...

DO NOT BUY OR SUPPORT THESE COMPANIES!
The French have done nothing but try and help Saddam since this whole crisis has started... They are against the Liberation of Iraq why? By the sounds of it because they have oil interests there... If the people govern Iraq, France won't have the same deals they have now...
Sad... but, thats how it looks...
So, a boycott of the following companies has been started..

you know it's not the French people--per say it's the government, not that I neccesearlly agree or disagre that they support Iraq(I dont have all the facts on that-so I dont feel I can say one way or another) but why boycott the entire country of France--I j ust dont see the point.

I like France, I like Europe and eh, I dont know I just dont see what a boycott like that will accomplish--but like I saidi 'm not putting you down for doing so(or anyone else who does) caues you need to do what you feel is right

well.. to be honest.. I'm really not paying attention to wht I buy when I buy things...
Just like the oil boycott they wanted to do for the longest time... they urged people to not use Mobil/Exxon cause if they were hurting, then the prices would go down...
When I need gas, I go pump the gas.. I don't even look at the price till I am pumping... I figure if I need it, I need it.. no questions asked...

What should we do about the Statue of Liberty? It was a gift from the French after all.
