Senators Marsha Blackburn, Ted Cruz Condemn EU Ruling Permitting Anti-Israel Business Practices

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – U.S. Senators Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) condemned the Court of Justice of the European Union’s recent ruling to permit anti-Israel business practices in the 28 member states.

The ruling singles out Israeli goods for discrimination and requires special labels indicating the origin of products imported from Israeli settlements and areas the EU deems “occupied by Israel since 1967.”

“In Nazi-occupied Europe, the Jewish people were forced to wear a yellow star as a means of discrimination. Similarly, this label will apply only to products from Israel and associated disputed territories, thereby discriminating against Israel and against specific Israeli businesses,” the Senators write.

Dodging the Roadkill: Beating the Blues

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – If you’ve been following my blog from the beginning, you know the story of how I came to be a biker.  A friend of mine asked me to pick him up from the local Harley dealership for lunch, and when they wheeled his motorcycle out of the service department, I asked, “you have a motorcycle?” 

He said, “everybody you know has a motorcycle!”

I was suffering from depression at the time.

My life changed when I bought a motorcycle.  This was radical.  This was extreme.  The risks were real.  It was life changing.  With over 150,000 miles in less than four years, I wouldn’t change a thing.
