Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, July 10, 2019

The embattled National Rifle Association reported some good news to its supporters earlier this year: Revenue from membership dues jumped 33% last year to $170 million.

How does hiding their financial situation for a month or 2 help them? If they are going broke, that won't change.

Why do you think the NRA is hiding their financial situation for a month or two?

"The group also booked much of the revenue from multiyear memberships in the first year, according to financial statements."

It worked for MCI Worldcom.
Hopefully the NRA is just as successful with it.

The NRA is dying mainly because reports came out of how the donations were being misspent and that they supported some bans. I am still a member only because I bought a multiyear package a few years back. I recently joined Gun owners of America. Smaller group but less corruption. All I ever get from the NRA is requests for more donations. I don't ever see myself sending them more money unless they totally revamp their leadership.

The wingnuts don't need the NRA anymore. They have the KGB now.

Republican strategy. If the numbers look bad, instead of fixing the problem, fudge the numbers.

Just like trump's approach the the environment is to stop studying it so people wont hear about how bad it's gotten. MAGA aka IGNORANCE IS BLISS!

Must we fund these grifters again in 2020? Cannot we find cheaper outlets for our Trump support than the NRA?
