Sorry brothers but this thread pricked a raw nerve. In a previous life I lobbied in Washington and before state legislatures on the behalf of professional natural resource management, rural and agricultural issues. It has been my experience (spanning some 37 years) that these kinds of organizations are all about membership, dues and fund raising, period! The more provocative they are = the more folks feel guilty = more cash flow and the truth be damned. If you care, use your pocket book; don't give them a penny or any other kind of support! Ooh, that felt pretty good, I'm done.
