Spaz I don't know about the ripe part but I do feel that now is the closest to good things happening in a long time. We can only hope. With everyone feeling the numbers crunch and the reality that if something doesn't change fast,its over and the people who are responsible because of unimpecable deals,ignorance and greed and those that turned their heads to the truth don't want to be caught holding the bag. Time will tell. I do know CCA is right in there trying to make the transition happen without doing a bunch of name calling and finger pointing which is how change for the better will happen if it can.I hope their numbers continue to grow and more people get behind them so it can happen sooner than later.I know theres other groups and individuals involved that are also accomplishing great things but they aren't building big numbers of supporters. Everything helps.At some point we'll all come together and be glad we got involved.Imagine if sportsman,tribal and non-tribal netters and government got together how much could be accomplished! I'm dreaming but maybe someday.
