I am going to continue to boycot Jessica Simpson- it should be illegal for her to exist.




I am boycotting Cord now.




Jessica Simpson, for all that people dislike about her, but did you not see her in the video about "Boots were made for walking"? Turn down the sound and enjoy. You don't have to like her ... but it doesn't hurt to look ... right Matt.

I'd love to boycott stupidity too...but, like Joel said, I'd have to lock myself in the house and never go out becaus I seem to be surrounded by them.

I am actually engaging in a boycott now...all American products. (Nothing against Americans, just the government.)

I'm Lebanese...you figure it out.

That shouldn't be too much of a problem...considering how few 'American' products are in the stores. I do recall that the 'lint roller' was invented in Flint, Michigan by unemployed automotive workers. Probably an urban legand.

Other than that, and food (which I'm sure you won't boycott entirely)...what is still manufactured in the USA?

Actually, it is mostly food...I don't want to get too into it because I don't want to discuss politics or whatever on this forum...I just want to feel like I'm doing something while my country's being blown to pieces instead of wringing my hands and watching the god-awful news.

Aaanyways...moving on...

Hala, if you have any friends or family in Lebanon I hope they are all safe.

Joel and Ride -- Thanks, I appreciate your concern.


I actually spoke with one of my cousins today, they're doing all right, especially since the ceasefire came into effect a couple of days ago. Hopefully things will get better. I'm planning to go back for a visit in December, hopefully things would be looking up by then. *Crosses fingers*

Hala -

While I sympathize with the plight of innocent Lebanese caught between the Israeli Army and Hezbollah, to boycott American products is pretty silly. We are not directly involved in that conflict. I mean, are you boycotting Iranian or Syrian goods and government as well? Let's be fair.

Heh, this is why I didn't really want to talk about this here--I like to go here because of everyone's love and abudnant knowledge of MA, which I happen to be just as passionate about. Not politics. I'd explain what I'm doing further...but I'm really not in the mood right now, and I don't want to do it on this forum. I'm on here so much I feel like I know some of you almost personally, and I enjoy all of your posts a lot. I don't want to mix talking MA and other lighter subjects with Middle Eastern politics--especially because it's a sensitive subject for me and one that is *very* complicated.

So, let's just leave this at that, and move on, okay?

And thanks for your sympathy, it's appreciated.
