So, I'm lookin' for The Very Latest on the verdammpt nationalsocialization of healthcare that the Senate is workin'* on the Sabbath† about and in the process, I stumble across a Leftie blog with an animated barcode thingie, pointing out that if the first three digits are 729," that means the product was made in Israel and urging readers to "boycott Israeli goods." ('Cos, I guess, he figures they don't have enough troubles already?)
Yeah? It works both ways, chum; from now on, I can look for and buy items made in Israel and with the list of country codes, pick others to boycott.
I am, however, a bit miffed to discover Teh Intarwebz goes a bit slow-ish on the weekends, newswise; the TV -- the tellyvision! oh, the shame -- seems to have scooped online sources for the Very Latest hair-curdling news from the Meddlers On The Potomac and it sure looks like the [word omitted] are up to no good.
* To the extent that thing they do can be called "work."
† Everybody's Sabbath, or very nearly, since they are "working" both weekend days. I always figured the reason Congress got weekends off was to limit the damage they could accomplish in any one week and now it is confirmed.
