    I think I’ll join HSUS

    Why not? Many of you have! Divide and conquer! If you haven’t done everything in your power to contact your senators and write them letters, you have JOINED the HSUS! Congratulations honorary HSUS members! Do you think it is a coincidence that several large constrictors and Boa Constrictors are on the list amended in the Senate? This is Divide and conquer. HSUS is splintering off what I estimate in about 30% of the Reptile trade to destruction via S373 and HR2811 at least. This fragmentation makes YOU much more vulnerable. Further, once that 30% is out of the way, they have PRECEDENCE and precedence gives them a LOT more leverage for the next fight! You’re making a decision to stay out because you think you dodged a bullet. This makes you FAR more vulnerable than if you engage in this fight and help us KILL S373! If S373 passes in ANY form, that strengthens those who are going to come for YOU next!

    S373 is not in its final version yet!!! It won’t be until passing through at least three more steps, that it will be set and finalized. During one of those steps they can vote to add in your precious animals that you think are safe now! You fail to understand the underhanded deceit that those involved in politics are capable of. Ball Pythons and maybe ALL other Pythons can be added onto this bill via an amendment in the Senate, OR in the House, or even if the somehow those that concoct the compromise in the conference committee decide to include all Pythons and Boas. You are still in the sights of the HSUS. Without doing everything in your power to help stop this, you may be a sitting duck. The entire building is on fire right now! Just because that fire isn’t on your floor yet, you think you are safe. In fact, you have decided to let the others burn that you know are without question vulnerable. You have decided to let them burn!

    Tom Wolfe has received a pathetically small number of letters. This is because people have either given up or think they are not vulnerable. If you keep Leopard Geckos and you don’t send in your letters to help stop S373, you are next! The PRECEDENCE will be set if they win this victory and taking you down will be a whole lot easier. Bill Nelson wrote THIS on his web site the day of the last hearing of S373 in the Senate.

    Bill Nelson, U.S. Senator from Florida: Media Release: Key Senate panel passes import ban on giant snakes

    “On the House side, U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek has filed a bill similar to Nelson’s. Meantime, Nelson is working on a new bill to streamline the process for identifying and blocking other harmful invasive species.

    Nelson is working to pass legislation so you have absolutely no say in, if you survive or not! This is not a game people. You MUST get up and fight! You inaction is fundamentally showing your support for HSUS and the Animal Rights Extremists who will be coming for you, even perhaps very soon with S373 if the outcry is insufficient. Now get your letters done and get everyone you know to do this as or, perhaps you would rather just sit down and write your check for support made out to the HSUS and admit your real position. You can and MUST help make a difference. Do NOT delay!

      Re: I think I’ll join HSUS

      I've sent letter after letter and even participated in a USARK letter writing campaign at a local reptile pet shop. Come on everyone, it's almost too late!

        Re: I think I’ll join HSUS

        I've done the open congress thing. I called 5 senators (slacker I know). I've blogged about it a few times and linked to the big threads here about it. I've sent Obama and others emails. I've emailed my state senators as well as paying the measly $9 to have letters delivered. I've used the USARK form to send emails to others. All combined was less than an hour if not 45 minutes. The phone calls being the majority. It takes no time people. I did all of it but the calls while chatting in the chatbox ! There is really no excuse for people to do ATLEAST one thing.

        I hate to say it about a lot of my fellow herpers but everything I have done on other sites where there were some stats about participation (ie opencongress) it was a very very poor turnout.

        I know I want to win free boas from Jeff and Clay, don't you? I know I want to buy more boas and pythons this year, don't you? I know when I have a kid I want them to have the chance to enjoy these creatures. DONT YOU? Most importantly, I DONT want to be told what I can and cannot have, nor do I think this country needs to be killing off MORE AMERICAN JOBS, family ran operations and small business to boot.

        My attempt at a little pep talk! Everyone has made it very easy to do things with minimal effort for even the most lazy of us (which I fit in there sad to say!) so again there's no excuse.

          I focused my energy on rallying others. In total I've put forth about 100 hours in the last month posting messages on forums, writing FAQ's, recording videos, doing reptile radio, etc. But, I still managed to get 70 letters signed and I sent them to Tom today.

          The HSUS is engaging in a fight and hoping for us to cower and flee. I've stood up to them because "flight" doesn't exist in me, only "FIGHT"!

          Now is the time guys. Put up, or shut up!

            Great video, Jeff.

            I've sent in 18 hand delivered letters via Rally Congress at USARK and Nat Pet's sites. I've sent 36 pairs of letters to Tom Wolfe. I've called my senators (as well as others)... I've actually lost count on how many calls. I've written to MSNBC, CNN, and Fox. I've written to Sen Bill Nelson twice. I've contacted Frank Lautenberg's office for a meeting. And I'm working on a letter/essay that will be sent to my state senators, President Obama, and several other senators across the country. And to a lesser degree I've been posting relevant news on my site to spread the word.

            Oh, and my 4-H Herp club members have banned together to write a letter to our state senators regarding S373. We were discussing the matter at our last meeting and the president of the club decided that we needed to post pone all new business in favor of working to get a letter out to our senators. When put to vote the club unanimously agreed.

                Re: I think I’ll join HSUS

                As herpers we have an obligation to protect our hobby. As Americans we have an obligation to protect OUR rights. We are obligated by those who have sacrificed life and limb to protect this process we are engaged in right now.

                In my opinion, if you sit back and do NOTHING, you are disrespecting those who have really fought (and died) for us to have this opportunity.

                Let's exercise those rights given to us by better men.

                I'm a fighter, have been all my life. Now I'm fighting for something good. Something I truly believe in. Something much BIGGER than me or even this hobby. I'm fighting for our right as Americans to pursue happiness and provide for our families in the way we chose.

                I know I won't go quietly into the night.....How about YOU?

                      I have sent the letter to my Senetors here in OR three of them Merkley,Wyden, and Blume, I paid the $9. at the nosnakeban site. I know we all want to be able to have Reptile shows that we can go to and enjoy it and be able to purchase new Reptiles and help out the economy. I told some of my other Reptile friends at work to see if they can get the word out. especially an Executive from Africa that knows all about the Ball Pythons. He said he would try and help.

                        Re: I think I’ll join HSUS

                        I got a call this morning from Card Services from my bank to verify 10 $9.00 charges I'd made recently to Rally Congress. They wanted to make sure I was aware of, and had authorized these transactions.

                        Mike (Dirty Shooter) - that was very well said, man! Bravo!
