So you think the states recognize the US Constitution?

This is the place for thoughts that you want to share about nearly anything that comes to mind. Politics is ok as well. All notions and opinions are the view of the poster and not this site. Just remain civil in whatever you wish to express.

The First Amendment says: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

However, if you want to speak against or boycott the political apartheid in Israel You better watch out if you work for any state government entity in most of the US. In Texas, a born in America professional pathologist in a public school system was fired for refusing to sign a statement loyal to Israel and asserting that she would never participate or sympathize with a boycott in protest of what this foreign country does contrary to her personal belief. "The vast majority of American citizens are therefore now officially barred from supporting a boycott of Israel without incurring some form of sanction or limitation imposed by their state. And the relatively few Americans who are still free to form views on this hotly contested political debate without being officially punished are in danger of losing that freedom, as more and more states are poised to enact similar censorship schemes."
