We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Part 1: This is THE TIME of the summer for you to take action on easing the embargo on travel to Cuba. If you can take just ONE action this summer, NOW is the time. We anticipate that several amendments easing and/or ending the travel ban will be offered on the floor of the House NEXT WEEK, probably Wednesday or Thursday. Here’s what we expect and what we’re asking you to do. We emphasize its urgency!
Part 2: EXPECTED VOTES:
Flake Amendment on cutting off funding for enforcement of the full travel ban;
Davis Amendment on cutting off funding for enforcement of the restrictions on Cuban-American travel;
Lee Amendment on cutting off funding for enforcement of the restrictions on educational travel and exchanges;
Rangel Amendment on cutting off funding for enforcement of the full embargo.
Find out who received what from whom. This Cuba embargo has to change if for no other reason than the Cubans suffering have nothing to do with Fidel's insanity. They just want a Band-Aid to cover their cut, or toilet paper instead of newspaper print and toothpaste instead of water. read more here: Click here: Political Action Committees
