NFC: Re: Re: political thread

I'm willing to drop the topic but want to get some relevant thoughts out.

* The "C" in "NFC" is "Conservancy".  We're not just an aquarium club.
Conservation is one of the key goals of the club and like it or not, we have
to wade into the political arena to get anything serious done.

* A political action notice was posted here, as Robert frequently takes the
time to share with us.  Usually these go without comment.  I cared enough
about the issues to actually discuss it.  When an action notice is posted,
no one complains.  But as soon as the issues therein are analyzed, a few
people get upset and want to go back to talking about their tanks.  Am I to
take it that no one actually cares about these notices?  Does no one here
actually write to their elected officials?  No one care about the issues
that caused our native fish to come into danger in the first place?

The painful question has to be asked:  Is this just another aquarists club?
