Boycotts

[ #14348 ]

A group is calling for a boycott of any moving company that carts the Ten Commandments off from the Alabama court house. Not even Pontius Pilate was treated so poorly.

Massachusetts citizens voted for a seat belt law, and then voted to repeal it when they realized that it meant THEY had to wear seat belts, too. It's a strange place.
      • The political differences between Alabama and Boston are like night and day though. I personally think Massachusetts tends to have a much healthier spectrum of views: I have to date seen as many bumper stickers saying "Howard Dean for president" as "First Iraq, Then France!". In Alabama, I gather that it's almost all the latter...

        In any case, politics (sort of) aside, people are far more expressively religious down there, not caring a whit if you have a different opinion on the matter or *shock, horror* a
