Not sure where to post this here or in the Waterfowl spot but since the issue is political I will post it here. Received a fund raising promotion from California Waterfowl Asso where they listed a Yeti cooler for a $1,000 donation. Not a Yeti fan since they severed their ties with the NRA and Friends of NRA. But also Yeti is over-priced. There are other options. CWA is a Friend of NRA or was last I looked. I wrote to CWA. Do you guys think I am beating a dead horse.

My bad... according to PETA I should be using "feeding a fed horse" instead of "beating a dead one"...

They start clamping down... but.. then.. once their chrony buddies who actually produce the weapons and cartridges start seeing dips in profits.. and subsequently... the various political funds start seeing losses in contirbutions... those 'tards will start changing their tune.  They will wake-up and realize that if anybody is going to possibly support how they give billions to other countries only so that those countries can turned around and buy weaponry from their buddies... the only folks who are going to possibly support that are folks who enjoy their guns and have bought into the narratives they've created of who is the supposed enemy and how they like to whip people up into hating whom they want you to hate.  Folks who are more into enjoying the shooting sports... I have to imagine... are far more likely to be among those whom would scream for the blood of these folks from far-off lands that they want you to hate.

Would somebody mind translating that to human?

Big deal yeti closed promotions to the NRA that didn't pay off.

But a clothing company H cuts ties with a staff pro because he killed an animal with a primitive weapon.....all legal of course

Roux, I saw that promotion also and was disappointed to see Yeti involved. They are definitely on my no buy list for the same reason you mentioned. I am a strong supporter of CWA and wish they would use another company. Glad you wrote to CWA.

"we cheat the other guy and pass the savings on to you" 

 

That is what Yeti's business model seems to be.  Give away 1/2 of their production to pro-staff and organizations with large memberships then sell an f-ing dog bowl for 50 bucks. 

 

To be honest that is more offensive to me than them not imprinting an org's logo on their product any more.  

 

When they were the first to produce a really good cooler, ok...That's a premium product.  But now it's about the label.  

 

Here, I got a label for ya that will cost A LOT less....
