    This is interesting. what do you all think I got this email from a family member.

    France has every right to disagree with America. But, France has moved from simple dissent to active hostility toward America. French President Chirac warned East European nations that if they side with America, France will oppose their membership in the European Union.

    This week, William Safire reported in the New York Times ( ) that France has been secretly helping Iraq.

    Just as France is exercising its right to disagree, Americans can exercise their right to boycott -- and avoid helping companies and countries that do no stand with America. Such as:
