(Travel Dynamics International)   Just yesterday I was saying to myself, "I wish I could take a cruise down the Detroit River with Grover Norquist, but unfortunately there are too many foreigners working on cruise ships these days." Well, my prayers have been answered   (traveldynamicsinternational.com) divider line 22

sno man: And bring your passport patriot, the whole second day is in Canada!


See, that there is probably a show stopper. The people that would go on a cruise to talk policy with Grover Norquist aren't particularly likely to be among the 20% or so of Americans with a passport.

I also love this, FTFA: Experience..the... delights of Sheboygan and Saugatuck, with their thriving arts scene!

Yes, enjoy the rich artistic and cultural experience of Sheboygan's John Michael Kohler Arts Center considered "a catalyst and explorer of new art and ideas that impact artists and public." Of course, the policy discussions we'll be having aboard our cruise include defunding the NEA, which funds this center. So let's get out there and enjoy these fine cultural and artistic spaces completely oblivious to the irony while they still exist!

I don't want to be in the same confines as Grover Norquist and John H. Fund. I don't trust myself. Smug-induced killing spree is quite possible.

I'm trying to think of things that would be somehow more painful than wandering in on dinner table conversation aboard this cruise.

Taking a 2"x2" piece of sandpaper and rubbing it on my forehead until I died?
Using a hot awl to jam an entire case of roofing nails one-at-a-time up my peehole?
Diving from a board and landing, eyeball first, on a box of rusty razor blades?
Sewing up my butthole and eating a gallon of chili where the meat is raw chicken and the sauce entirely made of Blair's 16 Million Reserve?
Watching an entire episode of 'Whitney?'

The trip goes to Goderich, Bayfield and Stratford, Ontario!?

That right there is enough to tell you that the average age of attendees is in the mid 70s. With the exception of he Shakespeare festival in Stratford there is absolutely nothing to do in any of those places aside from wandering around clucking about how "quaint" and "charming" everything looks.

buckler: Well, I do give 'em props for being flagged American, and for hiring American workers. The only reason just about every cruise ship is flagged and registered in Liberia or some such place is so they don't have to follow US labor laws and can pay the workers crap wages. Then again, I suppose being a Great Lakes cruise line entirely with US boundaries, their hands were sort of tied.


They could have gone Canadian, but that would have actually cost more.

That plus Saugatuck is well known as one of Michigan's biggest gay-friendly areas. I love the fact that a bunch of conservatives who purport to dislike the gays will be stopping THERE of all places.

StreetlightInTheGhetto: In Michigan you can get an enhaced license. Cost me barely more than my normal one and took 10 extra minutes.


A word of warning if you didn't already know, and something I just recently nearly found out the hard way: Those licenses only allow you access to Canada without a passport if you're driving.

If you're flying or taking a boat, you need an actual passport.

a man it said with nare a thought in his head, when elections of November come looming

When suppertime came the old cook came on deck sayin'.

Fellas, you're too fat to feed ya

They cruised through the night, with their stomachs too light
For 'twas nothing but Cheetos on their plates
The church bell chimed, it rang 29 times
For each point shaved off marginal tax rates




That was beautiful.

sigdiamond2000: I am completely baffled by this whole "take a cruise with your favorite think-tank all-stars" thing that seems to be sweeping the nation all of a sudden.

Who is going on these f*cking cruises?

"Honey, I booked us a trip on the Small Government Exploration of the Islands of Northern Lake Huron! Finally, we'll get to see the Soo Locks AND Emmett Tyrell in cruise-wear!"


I vaguely recall at least one other one. Some journalist went and wrote up their experience, which included discussing Affirmative Action with some Black Republican whose name escapes me. I believe Coulter was also involved somehow.

And Google comes through in the clutch...

Enough - I see another, more intriguing ghost. Ward Connerly is the only black person in the National Review posse, a 67-year-old Louisiana-born businessman, best known for leading conservative campaigns against affirmative action for black people. Earlier, I heard him saying the Republican Party has been "too preoccupied with not ticking off the blacks", and a cooing white couple wandered away smiling, "If he can say it, we can say it." What must it be like to be a black man shilling for a magazine that declared at the height of the civil rights movement that black people "tend to revert to savagery", and should be given the vote only "when they stop eating each other"?

He's waiting until they're in international waters so he can board the boat and force them to endure the indignity of having their toilets cleaned by Mexicans.
