      Pfizer stock is has passed a 5 year low earlier this year and is still
      not that much higher although it looks like its starting to recover. It
      pays a decent dividend as well. Maybe what we should do is buy some
      stock and raise a ruckus at the annual meeting. Given the number of RLC
      members, we'd liikely make more of an impression on their board that way
      than by declaring a boycott. I doubt that a boycott by our membership
      would even be noticed. The other way we might even make a little money
      on the project. You could donate any profits to the RLC PAC. That way we
      would actually be getting back on track with our main purpose, which, in
      Texas at least, is to ELECT MORE RON PAUL REPUBLICANS. If you all
      decide on my stock plan, I'm good for 100 shares. If you're going to
      boycott, I think I'll stay out of that market. Wouldn't want to lose my
      shirt now, would I?

      If 12,000,000 Southern Baptists couldn't shut down Disneyworld, I doubt
      we can seriously wound Pfizer.

      I'm a libertarian by logical necessity because I'm a Christian.
