A while ago on Pirate, someone posted a video of Smokey the Bear telling some ATV guys that they should not start their ATV's becuase it would start a forest fire since ATV's give off sparks. Hello??!! Spark Arrestors??? We all thought it was a joke when we first saw it.
Here's the vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cowvlUmXMvQ
Well, It's not a joke, the Forest Service is using that Public Service Announcement on the Smoky the Bear website.
This PSA shows how the FS is agenda driven, they lump the ATV and dirt bike guys with us in one whole catagory, OHV's and then SLAM our already battered image with stuff like this.
Well, we're not gonna take it. The image of the entire OHV public keeps being slammed, and this type of thing only hurts our access to our public clands by spreading mis-information.
Using your own words so they do not sound like form letters, please take 3 mintues to use this letter generator to shoot a letter off about your disgust with this BS PSA and ask that it be removed. The Letters will be e-mailed out so several big-wigs in the USFS, the Ad Council and the like, so please watch your language. We do not want them to look down on us more than they already do....
Here's the link to the letter generator:
There is no need to put a salutation at the beginning of the letter becuase the generator automatically does it for you for each indiviual that it sends an e-mail too.
