Dear NRA:

Please don't change.  Please continue what you are doing.  I really love how you are sticking to your guns, pun intended.  You are doing a great job.

You are doing a great job of destroying your brand.  You are showing how small minded you are.  You are showing how morally corrupt you are.  You are showing how you will not stop at anything to keep your profits flowing.

Yes, you are seeing your membership rise, but a profit oriented organization like you that also has to grease a lot of palms really shouldn't give such deep discounts for joining you.  And do you really trust those new members who didn't have true conviction and pay the full amount?

But like I was saying, please keep it up.  And keep the pressure up on on the GOP lackies you have and those disgraceful Dems who are also in your pocket.  Your inability to be flexible, and discuss things in a reasonable manner is pushing more and more people into the other camp.  And while you are destroying your own brand, you are also destroying the GOP and weak Dems.  

So keep it up.  You are also loosing people like Joe Scarborough and Andrea Mitchell who is right now taking one of yours to the wood shed.

Love Me.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    When you say it is "common sense" what you are really saying is "I don't have any evidence to back up my argument", because it is quite often neither common nor sense.

    as the iron grip they have on so many Crongresscritters (as well as State reps/senators) goes away since without that grip they will soon become irrelevant.  But make no mistake, deadenders (to paraphrase a certain VP that will forever live in infamy) will act desperately so we have a long fight ahead of us.

    Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.

    •  The more extreme they get (3+ / 0-)

      the more isolated they will become and the less influence they will have at both levels.  Going after the President's daughters isn't going to make them any friends.  Having their supporters spinning conspiracy theories about 26 people being slaughtered isn't going to make them friends. It will make people look at the NRA and see how out of control they are.
