Pastors for Peace
Here's a chuckle. The Montclair Times (NJ), carries this headline "Caravan challenging Cuba blockade to stop in town." Blockade, huh.
It seems something called "Pastors for Peace volunteers of the Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization (IFCO)" is holding something called the "16th annual Friendshipment Caravan" to send what it calls humanitarian aid to Cuba.
The caravan will traverse 14 routes across the nations, stopping in all 48 mainland states to collect computers, medicines, medical supplies and school buses to be shipped to Cuba.
This is a really astounding read - please read it all - it's only a few paragraphs. I can't believe that such writing and fuzzy thinking is published in an American newspaper. Where are the editors the MSM are always touting?
Update - Congress put a stop to some of this foolishness yesterday. Val has the info.
