Dude, can you read? You just made this discussion circular. We are back to where we started. Because you are polite I will address your questions one last time.

What do you mean by the "meat fisted" and "insulting the opposition" stuff?

In a very public way, he called the people who enacted the Lacey Act listing of burms "liars, cheats and thieves". That is meat fisted and insulting all rolled in one bun. A real industry representative would never have even considered making such a statement. Someone who knows the ropes inside DC, and has education and experience would have been a far better representative.

I'm not really bothered by the fact that he's not educated or experienced as I'm not seeing concrete examples as to where it has hurt. I mean specific quotes, etc..

You should be. Opposition doesn't take him seriously. He is an outsider with zero people skills, Lady skills yes, people? NO. His seriously poor results prove it.

Also, you say to "start saving boas." How then?
Just by giving to PIJAC?

When you say "hire new leaders for the Herp Industry." What do you mean? Not USARK or someone else to lead USARK or PIJAC?


I don't care about this path. I am not a details guy. I fight for the overall landscape of the battle. As long as the face for the industry has knowledge, background, education & experience. Oh yeah, & is not some modern day Barney Fife.

That leader will know how to best defend Boa constrictor.

Burms are gone. Precedent is set. Any further fight is a waste of precious resources. As I said, any lawsuit in defense of burms will be swatted away like a mosquito. Opposition will march onto banning the remaining species. Boa constrictor is the really truly important battlefield. Burms, Anacondas, Afrocks and Retics? Not so much. If you do not get to work on Boa constrictor very soon, they will also be lost in the next 24 months. Bookmark this post and have a look in 2014 to check my prediction.
