Your boycott list is too long..

Just a guy said...

That any government should boycott another because they don't happen to exercise democracy in a way they find acceptable is inexcusable.

I ashamed of those who would engage in this kind of perfidy. But I expect the list to get longer before it gets shorter as the fringe left tries to score nonexistent political points.

I would love to see the list of groups and companies who are GOING to Arizona in support of passing this law.

Actually the whole thing is really stupid. Why would you boycott a state for enforcing laws that are already on the books. Geez!
