Tulsi's Response and Tulsi's Budget Support

Tulsi put together a YouTube vid describing why she voted for HRes246. Although nominally an anti-BDS resolution, stating that the government does not support BDS, the text of the resolution does, indeed, support the rights of people to support BDS and does not allow the free speech of people in support of BDS to be legislated against (as the infamous bill S1 does).

Colonizing the Human Mind: Do Your Thoughts Make Money or Cost Society?

If a man has a thought and it profits nobody, is it worth his time? Is it dangerous? Should it be allowed?

Startlingly stupid question, I know. It sounds like the opening line from some poorly written cyberpunk novel. But I'm afraid we're already looking at that reality, and have been for some time.
