Obscene Hummer and National Security sign now

At a time in our history when our military forces toil in Middle Eastern theaters to secure the United States' vital strategic and economic interests, we, the undersigned, consider it obscene, calculating and indecent of General Motors (GM) and the present administration to produce, endorse and financially underwrite the Hummer, a line of vehicles so utterly and perversely unsuited to consumer needs that it defies categorization by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Environmental Protection Agency. That the "HumVee" is standard issue military ordnance for use in said theaters while at the same time is exploited to produce GM's most profitable product line (and one of its most heavily marketed) is an offense to all those who have loved ones currently deployed and any citizen who recognizes the cost in consumption of lives and resources represented by the Hummer.

While we acknowledge the right of GM to manufacture the Hummer in a free market and among a free people, and that to advertise it is a First Amendment guarantee, it is incumbent upon us to inform you of our annoyance about GM's exploitative and manipulative advertising and sales practices, and the support of these practices by the current administration, and of the threat that the sale of Hummers represents to the community of non-Hummer-driving-motorists (i.e., the majority of motorists) and to the environment.

We hereby vow to boycott all GM products, whether produced domestically or by foreign subsidiary (Saab, Vauxhall, Opel, etc.) until such time as GM withdraws the Hummer product line and ceases its lobbying of congress for manufacturing and tax advantages for large, dangerous and inefficient vehicles.
