This is how they do it
Check out this link:

This is one interesting site. I think we have to get this organized to get the job done.
I'm learning a lot more about what we're up against from reading this than reading the mental dribblings at FR.

A small sample:


This is it.

Tomorrow at 2:00 p.m. the House Ways and Means Committee will vote on
whether to include a massive, unfair, tax-advantage to green land trusts in
H.R. 7 (the supposed "Faith-based" initiative).

This is a showdown between property rights advocates and green land
grabbers. The outcome will be CRUCIAL. This is one that property rights

We only have the next 24 hours to make our voices heard.

Multibillion-dollar, green land trusts like the ever-corrupt Nature
Conservancy are demanding that Congress add a loophole to H.R. 7 that will
discount 50% off of capital gains taxes for a seller of land BUT only if
land is sold to a land trust or government agency! This places EVERYONE
ELSE at an extreme comparative disadvantage when attempting to purchase


Interesting, eh?

"Ever corrupt Nature Conservancy", What a load! Like calling the Girl Scouts an evil cabal.

I mean, that Nature Conservancy wants to just buy up all the land and let it sit there. Oh, the evil genius of it. Work of Satan himself!

Bwwhaaa! The morans make me laugh every time.

2. Didja see the part
Where they said "NO special tax loopholes, NO Tax Favoritism for mulitbillion dollar corporations like The Nature Conservancy (TNC)."

That made fall to the floor!!!

But they do have an organized lobbying structure. they even hit the lobbyists themselves. We have lobbyists. We should do that too.
