1100 is the new 450

Take Action on Lobby Day

Last year the Wisconsin conservation community held their annual lobby day, where citizens engaged their legislators in support of conservation priorities. Those priorities are selected by more than 50 Wisconsin conservation organizations. Last year over 430 people came to the Capitol

* Only 450? Slackers. If you don't have at least 1,000 people at a rally in Madison you're not even trying.

* You can't conserve your way to prosperity. If you could, Bangladesh would be rich*.

* Interesting that One Wisconsin Now doesn't trust people to craft their own message but requests they use a form that they've thoughtfully filled in for you. Yes, I know it's best practice but it seems to indicate a lack of faith that the scouts will do what they're told without a connect-the-dots template, yes?

*Jerry Pournelle said it, I'm borrowing it.
