34. So what's your guess?
You're the expert. Tell me about economic boycotts. Tell me about emails and support. Give some evidence. I posted in support of a boycott. I never indicated that I could predict the outcome. You asked for a guess. I gave you one. A GUESS. A GUESS..not a prediction. Do you know the difference. I DO. After your second question????, I realized you were trying to set me up. No thanks.

LOL...I'm just not that stupid to be set up a second time. If you are so expert, then you give your predictions or your guess. BTW, if it's a guess, then you need to prove it because I'm planning to interpret guesses the same way you do.

Look up the definition of a guess.
