I don't deny that you have a point in saying that we should be respectful of our government but on the other hand this is a free country, the people have free speech and government employees should act professional by rising above pettiness. What they do affects not just the few who might be rude to them but all of us.


I cannot agree with you more. The operative word here is "should" government employees should act professional"; on the context of doing their job professionally. That is to say not to allow the bad acts of a few hurt the freedoms of the masses.

Unfortunately, that is an idealistic viewpoint. We do not live in an ideal world. If we did, this discussion would not be taking place. Now would it?

We live in a REAL world. One in which the masses have hired a neanderthal that doesn't understand a most basic precept of negotiation, that is to not piss off your opposition. The leadership at USARK is tainted and there is no recovering from the damages that have been done to opposition opinion of the herp community. That is as long as he is at the helm. He was hired to be the mouthpiece and that mouthpiece has insulted opposition. There is simply no denying this fact, it is everywhere! The insult is definitely felt and is certainly perceived to be from the ENTIRE herp nation.

Until new leadership is found your money is best left in your own pockets.

The only path to future success at the negotiating table in Washington DC and 50 state capitols is to find new leadership with appropriate qualifications. Not some Deputy Sheriff from Mayberry RFD that has no background, education or experience. Now is not the time to train a lobbyist.
