There is nothing frivolous about this cruise. I met lots of Tea Party leaders on the National Review Cruise, and I’m surprised to see that someone here actually claims to speak for “tea party minded people”. I’ve strongly supported the Tea Party, defended it, taken hits for it, and even been shoved around in a union riot because of it. I never claim to speak for the Tea party or the individuals who support it. For conservative activists who are involved in the Tea Party and otherwise, I offer an alternative training experience that has an added opportunity to interact with some very smart and interesting celebrities. I never said it was an event for everybody
There have been a couple of FReeper cruises, and we had a great time. The first was on Royal Caribbean, the second on Carnival and I think that killed it. Lesson: If you’re going to use a cruise for a meet-up and workshops, cheapness will kill you. Get a decent boat.
