2. Write and tell them. Michael Dell is a big supporter. Used to be a
very employee friendly company but too big and too competitive now.

7. It is crucial that we contact these companies and let them know
we were going to purchase their product, but not now. Can these people really afford to only sell to Pugs? We desperately need to dry up Pug money. I'm going to pick out 4 or 5 and let them know why they have lost my business until they change their donation policy. I really stick by my word to them; I was taking Caltrate until I found out about their Bush-leanings. I wrote them, and I have not bought it since.

8. Pickens
T. Boone Pickens in Texas

The notorious oilman has acquired land overlying the Ogallala aquifer and wants to pump and sell as much as 200,000 acre-feet of groundwater annually to one of Texas metropolitan centers.

A new undertaking by Texas oilman T. Boone Pickens is even more disconcerting. Pickens has been acquiring acreage overlying the Ogallala aquifer with hopes that he could pump and sell the as much as 200,000 AFY of water to one of the states metropolitan centers El Paso, Lubbock, San Antonio, or Dallas-Fort Worth. Ogallala is already severely depleted. The West Texas farmers rely on the aquifer for water. The aquifers minimal recharge rate of less then one AFY means that its users are mining fossil water that will not be replenished.


A more comprehensive groundwater regulatory regime is needed to prevent devastation of Texas groundwater resources. Further, Texas should abandon the Rule of Capture doctrine. Today, Texas is the only state to retain this antiquated rule.


T. Boone Pickens has been at the center of controversies surrounding Mesa. Called an "entrepreneurial populist," a corporate raider, and a greenmailer, he is accused of buying and breaking up companies and putting people out of jobs. In 1986 he started and funded a nonprofit organization called the United Shareholders Association to fund a newspaper informing shareholders of corporate abuses, and in 1987 he defended his position in a best-selling book entitled Boone. Pickens, for whom the West Texas A&M University business school is named, has served as the university's chairman of the board and supported other Texas universities.
