Re: Sponsored travel to Cuba

My point wasn't about how you would do it, it was what you are doing it for.

You would suggest a "protest flotilla" because people who are in the top quartile of wealth in this country aren't allowed to sail their boats to vacation in Cuba? Recall that half the voting population doesn't make enough money to pay income taxes, let alone own a boat. By definition, all boat owners are wealthy.

That just doesn't have the moral cache of kids dying in war or segregated buses.
