Truth or Consequences

I remember a television game show entitled, “Truth or Consequences.” Contestants were asked a hard-to-answer trivia question. If they couldn’t answer correctly then they had to do some silly stunt or embarrassing action. Ironically, most seemed to think that accepting the consequence was more fun than answering correctly.

Shaked says that the goal of the bill is to equalize conditions among all Israeli citizens.  Click here to read more.
