    Sounds like the Koch bros propaganda machine still works good...

      Not a political thread. Keep the Koch comments somewhere else. The same as the 'bama comments. Corruption on both sides, I say.

      My intent is to gage the position on these types of developments. Wind is current, used to be hydro. Large scale wind farms currently threaten the places we like to ride. I (concentrate, I said "I"), don't feel an organization such as NEMBA or Snowmobile clubs or bird clubs or fish clubs should accept money from corporations that destroy the woods and mtns we call home.
      I just want to see if I am the only one who thinks this way......

        I'm not sure if it is correct or not, but I do know hybrid technology is BS the way [most] people actually drive.

          I would be against GIVING them money, but don't have a problem accepting it. The same would go for, say, the Sierra Club.
          Long as it's not some sort of tit-for-tat deal, and NEMBA just keeps doing business as usual and stays on mission, any support is a good thing IMO.

            This Land is your Land
            this Land is my Land
            from California to the Boston Harbor
            from the Redwood forest
            to the Gulf stream waters
            this Land was made for you and me

            As I went rambling that ribbon of highway
            I saw above me a polluted skyway
            I saw below me a congested highway
            This Land was made for you and me

            On Sunday morning in the shadow of the steeple
            by the welfare office I see my people
            They stood there hungry, I stood there screaming
            This Land was made for you and me
            Nobody out there can ever stop me
            when I go walking that Freedom highway
            Nobody out there could ever make me turn
            This Land was made for you and me

            As I went walking
            I saw a sign there
            and on the sign it said no trespassing
            But on the other side it said nothing
            that side was made for you and me
