Remember Rosa Parks

How are those remembered who broke the law
to help American slaves escape to freedom?

How are those remembered who opposed Civil Rights
or Women's Suffrage?
Are they on the wrong side of history?

Are certain laws inherently unjust and tyrannical?

Is it my duty as a responsible US citizen to disobey any laws
that are unjust and tyrannical?

Whose interests does the US travel ban on Cuba serve?
Does it serve the many or the few?
Justice or tyranny?

How will those who support the US travel ban on Cuba
be remembered in 20 years?

Will they be remembered as being on the wrong side of history
like those who opposed Civil Rights or Women's Suffrage?

How will those who support the Iraq War be remembered in 20 years?

Does the US Constitution protect my rights
to freely travel wherever I choose?

Isn't the Cold War over?

Would the world be a better place if
people started asking each other more questions
instead of telling each other what to think or believe?

Can you argue with a question?

I have no idea of the purpose of your little rant here, but the travel ban makes perfect sense, because we shouldn't put tourist dollars into the pocket a brutal dictator, moron.
