  •  I remember those high school "debates"... (5+ / 0-)

    linking a bunch of unrelated issues together, like:

    legalizing abortion would lead to an undue burden on "pro-life" churches which would lead to negative tax consequences which would lead to trade wars which would destabilize some foreign country which would lead to a buildup of nuclear arsenals which lead to...

    on and on.

    Now, we simply have:

    American companies sell products to Israel that hurt the Palestinians which destabilizes the region which leads to anti-American sentiment which leads to crazy, horny guys taking down big buildings with box cutters which leads to another war which leads to massive protests in the streets which leads to (re-)electing the village idiot which leads to the suspension of civil rights which leads to the devaluing of the dollar which leads to trade wars which leads to burning more fossil fuels which leads to global warming which leads to "alternative" nuclear power which leads to a buildup of nuclear arsenals...

    and on and on.
