I too am appalled by Hoekstra's position. But who says you have to be coarse in order to be forcefully articulate or to stand up for a position that is different ?
Regards,
Chuck

I can attest that what Tom says is true. As someone who has a
conciliatory personality (not that I'm necessarily funded by anyone
that I have to kow tow to since I do have an unrelated day job), I
have always been glad that Tom is willing to stick his neck out. I
don't always agree, but in the instance of this whole turtle fence
situation, I'm appalled by Rep. Hoekstra's stance and find it
completely out of touch with his constituency -- as evidenced by
letters to the editor in the Muskegon Chronicle this past Sunday. I
have told Hoekstra's office this directly, but appreciate Tom's
willingness to bulldog it as I have many times in the past.

I should clarify a point here. My kissypoo comment should not be taken out
of content. They are good people and are often in paid positions that do
not allow them to comment freely here because they have to carefully work
with the same politicians we are referring to. I'm not on anyone's payroll.
Thus, I'm often the relay poster on behalf of the local environmentalist
that use much stronger language than I've ever posted. You may or not be
able to tell the difference which is for their protection. I do not mind
taking the heat for others. I've done this for years and the politicians
know this. This site has minor differences of opinion which is good for our
education. fyi this morning I again had 9:00AM coffee with both Republican
mayors of Montague and Whitehall including the Rep running tomorrow for
County commissioner election. We traded enough bs barbs to hold over until
the 3:00AM round. Finally, once in a while I make a breakthrough and this
morning I had the smartest one at the table asking how to get more
information on 'renewable energy' and I will help him by referring him to
proper technical sources........environmental education one at a time.
