    They have an email the CEO set up.
    But you can change all the settings, so I just sent him an email supporting Seseme Place's partnership with the NRA and told him to ignore the angry emails from soccer moms, who will never buy tickets anyways.

    The CEO's email will send you an automated reply and you can see what "you" sent him so I am certain he recieved the respectful message of support that I sent him.

    Turn the Message

    Elmo looks a little... dee-dee-dee in that video. :neener:

    That aside, what is this partnership they speak of?

    You can get discounted tickets to Sesame Place through the NRA.

    The funny thing is that they seem to be mad about the the fact that it's an
    Anheuser-Busch theme park.

    so what?

    I'll guarantee this whole thing is bogus, and I have proof. My Elmo loves guns!

    The guy in the video is a whiner. Or is it wiener? Either way, he's closed minded and uneducated.

    Proof that the anti's read this forum:


    I don't normally give these hits, but I do check in every once in a while to see what they're up to.

    GunGuys always make me laugh, the way they constantly contradict themselves it's very entertaining.

    That's nothing. One of the major media outlets quoted a few posts from glocktalk after someone posted an article about an unarmed person getting robbed or raped. I believe the media even quoted the poster's username in their followup article.

    Bryan Miller's a sad case, and a long story. He's one of the prime agitators for the forces of organized gun bigotry in NJ/PA/DE. He was radicalized when a criminal burst into an FBI office seeking vengeance. His brother, an agent, was killed in the crossfire. He's appeared on various local news dabates, generally getting his buttocks whipped by the progun side, and on one occassion, was ungracious enough on camera to refuse to shake Scott Bach's hand after the debate was over. He runs several shell groups under the ceasefire banner, and activities like this site are one of the many things he does. Several years back (and perhaps currently?) he was funded by the Joyce Foundation.

    Like the squirrels who have nothing to do all day but figure out how to get into my wife's bird feeder, Bryan Miller has nothing to do all day but sit around and write press releases hold press conferences, and sit in meetings with any politician who will see him, agitating on behalf of the forces of organized gun bigotry. If not for the Joyce Foundation, he'd just be another crackpot too busy making ends meet to be a problem.

    I sent the message too.
    I'm glad we have people pushing legislation that could end my firearm ownership who don't know the difference between an assault rifle and a battle rifle.
    And by "glad" I mean "super peeved off".

    My version...

    Dear Mr. Knell:

    I am pleased to learn that an organization to which I have trusted my children's education for so many years and which states that is devoted to children's education and safety has entered into a financial partnership with Anheuser-Busch, which has resulted in funding the National Rifle Association's Institute for Legislative Action.

    As you must know, NRA-ILA has long led the effort to protect citizen's rights by fighting ill-conceived legislation designed to disarm law abiding citizens and improve the chances of criminals everywhere, the very scourge that kills and wounds so many of our young citizens. I heartily support the NRA-ILA's efforts and so, applaud Sesame Workshop's support of it.

    Mr. Knell, it doesn't take a genius to know that preventing law abiding citizens from protecting their families only strengthens the criminal element among us. I thank you and Sesame Workshop for its supportive relationship with NRA-ILA and its funder Anheuser-Busch.
