I would like to point out it appears this web site is set up or influenced
by the Sierra club, or now Earthjustice. This group is not a friend to
fisherman in my opinion. I would also ( I could not find it there) their
actual methods of judging these politicians. To be truly obejective they
should have posted the 30(?) things they used to grade these politicians,
and why. Instead all I found is something like " We did the hard work for
you". They may be friends to the fish they care about, but the Sierra club
is not for using wildlife unless it fits their politically slanted Ideals.
And the promotion of vice president Al Gores book, Earth in the Balance, I
dont believe it. Like "the automobile is really the greatest threat" ,
doesnt he ride around in a gas guzzling limo? Should be pedalling a
armoured quadracycle if he believes these things that strongly. This site
came across to me more like a political ad, cloaked as something else, to
sway voters. Just by 3 dollar bill's worth...
