I was wondering if anybody knows more about the Center for Consumer Freedom and who backs it up.

I briefly checked out their website, which is
www.activistcash.com

Apparently, their goal is to "unmask" non-profits such as Greenpeace, PETA, Sierra Club, Humane Society of the US, etc., claiming these organizations are not as benign as they present themselves.

Is the CCF as "benign" in its intention to alert consumers as it pretends to be?

Hi. Welcome to The Daily Page Forum.

activistcash.com is a conservative smear operation. Search it for some conservative groups. Any, really. Heritage Foundation, New American Century, I got bored quick. But not before I googled activist cash, and viola!

(list shortened because it's not worth the space)

activistcash.com is owned and operated by conservative lobbyist Rick Berman.

I suppose this is the price I pay for sniping at others' grammar.

I was mostly worried about not using the accent over the 'a', and voilà - I misspell the whole fucking word.

Better?

Thanks, lysander. I had never heard of this organization (CCF) until I saw their ad in the current issue of the New Yorker.
