total waste, i will send an email bitching about it this wknd. this dude who works for BO, mitch stewart i think, sends me all these emails sayin nothing and I usually respond bitching about stuff I dont like that is always off topic, but they always write back, so it will be interesting to see how they explain this bs. perhaps i will do this as i catch the end of the super bowl after a hearty day on teh water. :cheer

you are a wise man on the ice, that shit freaks me out too. a friend of a friend just lost an orv to canyon ferry a couple weeks ago. fwp/deq made him go retrieve it later that week, cost a pretty penny.

I'd be interested in seeing the justification...first reaction is that it is supreme bullshit. How many uncounted folks are you going to get by advertising in the most expensive venue in town? even if you did, what's the payoff?

We are just trying to get a handle on how many Right Wing nut bags are out there. We will know how big to make the ovens. Then as soon as we get a count, We just have to stall until the "Death Camps" are up and running. I heard rumors that in a year liberals will be able to buy a lamp shade out of Republican Skin, a skull salad bowl, or pickled kidneys.

you do realize that about 40% of Americans consider themselves conservatives, while only 20% consider themselves liberal (or progressives or whatever the fuck you all call yourselves now), right?

I wonder what they paid the marketing douchebags to come up with that clever ad

I'm sure everyone will be rushing to the website for whatever the fuck they were talking about

At first glance I thought the thread title was about an idea roughly as ignorant as "keep the federal gov't out of my medicare", glad its not.

I agree that it was an awfully damn pricey PSA. If the actors in it got paid their normal rates rather than having volunteered, thats outrageous.

But the spot itself wasn't that awful. There were much worse-
