    No one opposed this bill.. The fact that there are so many Senators and that no one opposed it is scary..

    Did you see the other link..?

    Was going to say the same thing. There is nothing in the article that discusses what is actually in the bill, just a "scare" article.

    The amount of **** that gets proposed will surprise most people on here once they look into it.

    Oh, I don't doubt that for one second. However, most of it gets crushed early.

    Depends. Needs a good bit of tail fat to be delicious. The Australians are quite bad at raising them. There's an off taste about them. A lot of stores here buy from NZ farms instead. Everything is better in NZ.

    How did this get bipartisan support?

    I'm pretty pro-Israel by most accounts and this sounds horrible.

    :eek: Although I am a US citizen, I belong to a union of UK academics who have voted to formally boycott Israel (not something I support personally, for it smacks of academic censorship)....

    What exactly would one do to boycott Israel? Their main export is technology.

    Doesn't bother me in the least. Don't want something from Israel, don't buy it. Don't want to visit Israel, don't go.

    I'm guessing the only reason for this proposed bill is to stop left wing nuts from organizing a meaningless boycott of the ONLY Democratic nation in the Middle East.

    NOTE to myself, find some Israel products to buy and consider taking another trip to the Israel.

    Which is a shame because Vice was doing some good journalism before they jumped the shark.

    Interesting comment! Apparently a good number of leftists in this country don't agree with "freedom of speech", witness all the shout downs when someone tries to speak that they don't agree with.

    I'm only on this website for information about Mac products and wish those with a political agenda would take it over to Huffington Post. I would be VERY surprised if this topic isn't already on that board.

    Hmmmm, I think the chances of this bill passing are about as good as our OP here getting over his anti-Israel obsession.
