There must be an end to this intimidation by those who come to this great country, but reject its culture.

So did Enterprise. Most corporations know how much business a group like this gets and how much word of mouth gets around. I'm betting they'll have new sponsors shortly. Going to be fun reading the magazines next month though.

So Enterprise, FNB Omaha, Symantec, and Hertz (so far) have told an organization with seven figures' worth of dues-paying members: "We don't like your kind, and we don't want your business."

Okay, duly noted. Also: popcorn!

Suppose the boards of directors of those outfits had a chance to weigh in before their managers decided to get in on the Virtue Signal Tsunami?

Did the term payment for lifetime membership. Wish that exempted one from the constant begging though.

If it really bothers you, you can call them up and tell them not to. Other people have done the same, and they are quite receptive to it.

Worked for me. I get the magazine and occasional postcard and email alerts, and FNRA dinner notifications, nothing else.

I just upgraded my membership from their update website; they are offering discounts.
