Does a Texas Law Require Government Contractors to Swear They Won’t Boycott Israel?

The Intercept‘s article accurately reflected a law signed by Texas governor Greg Abbott in 2017, which did require any and all government agencies and bodies to demand that would-be contractors sign a commitment not to boycott Israel as a prerequisite to entering into a contract with them.

POTUS:

"It’s truly incredible that shows like Saturday Night Live, not funny/no talent, can spend all of their time knocking the same person (me), over & over, without so much of a mention of “the other side.” Like an advertisement without consequences. Same with Late Night Shows. Should Federal Election Commission and/or FCC look into this? "

That's just wonderful.

Taxpayer dollars shouldn’t subsidize colleges at all. It’s the whole reason tuition prices are so absurd. 

Then how do you explain private universities being more expensive?

You don’t think kids are getting federal grants and loans to go to private colleges?

I know they do. I also know they do to go to public universities.  That doesn't have anything to do with the cost of tuition. 

That's different than the school's receiving subsidies, however. If private universities received government subsidies, they could lower their tuition rates (in theory)

I disagree. The easy money from the fed inflates tuition.
