    Donald Says NCBA Will Respond to Allegations With Lawsuit

    MJ, you like to set yourself up as the victim so others will take your side or feel pity for you. I did not denegrate you, I did not call you a name. That is not my style. I brought facts and laid it all out, yet you continue to believe otherwise. There is no need for us to keep this up if you...

    Donald Says NCBA Will Respond to Allegations With Lawsuit

    mj...it may be self satisfying to call those with whom you choose not to agreesilly names, but it sure doesn't do anything to benefit anyone. Where is the name calling mj??

    Donald Says NCBA Will Respond to Allegations With Lawsuit

    mj...Sorry, Tommy, trying to hurry too much, I omitted a very important FACT:Those staff members are there solely, or partially to do the work of the Beef Checkoff CONTRACTS. Therefore, it is correct, and proper, that they are paid with checkoff money. Any time they MAY use for NCBA Policy...

    Donald Says NCBA Will Respond to Allegations With Lawsuit

    mj...The fact that so much of the staff of NCBA is there either solely, or partially (as accounted for by time accounts) is the ONLY reason it APPEARS such a large portion of the overhead is from checkoff dollars. MJ I know you pay taxes there in the county where you live. If one contractor...

    Donald Says NCBA Will Respond to Allegations With Lawsuit

    mj...Do you know the system used to account for time of each employee is accounted for in 15 minute increments, and by project name, so as to assure accuracy of who pays for what? It is complex due to the large number of projects and of staff. The frequent audits are part of the system to catch...

    Donald Says NCBA Will Respond to Allegations With Lawsuit

    mj...Tommy, would you share specifically what "all the pressure from the NCBA on them and their families" consisted of, and which individuals did it? No, but having talked with him and others that know, it happened. Answer my question mj. Are you saying that Ramey and Jones did not have the...

    Donald Says NCBA Will Respond to Allegations With Lawsuit

    mj...Apparently, some who got caught listening surreptitiously to others' phone conversations decided that wasn't the right thing to do and resigned, for which I give them due credit. Are you saying that Ramey and Jones did not have the right to be on the conference call mj? If they had of...

    Donald Says NCBA Will Respond to Allegations With Lawsuit

    mj...Tommy, who do you think the Federation members are? Most of them are NCBA members. mj...I know there are representatives of many, if not all, cattle groups within a given state. Did you know that? Not all states are represented that way mj. Did you know that? mj...NCBA does NOT choose...

    Donald Says NCBA Will Respond to Allegations With Lawsuit

    mj...I seriously doubt that USDA overseers of the Beef Checkoff in a Democrat admin. would look the other way for a decidedly conservative organization, not to mention that some people were hoping USDA would take over operations, or at least would give operations of checkoff contracts to 'one of...

    Update on NCBA's $2 Million Checkoff Cash Advance...

    Can anyone give me a good reason why there is a need for the Federation of State Beef Councils other than just to empower the NCBA? I have asked MJ this question many times and she ducks it. The CBB has over 100 board members, if they cannot delegate where the money is to be spent then there's...

    Only One Stood Up for Producers in the House.....

    mj...The most obvious is that they create more bookwork, probably even attorney fees, to justify every sale, or class of cattle. Those rules were created with some intent, according to J. Dudley Butlers' coments indicating they would be a litigation attorneys dream. MJ, J. Dudley Butler’s...

    A CBB Member's Perspective

    SH...Tommy, Have you ever served on the Cattlemen's Beef Board? If not, why not? Do you find it easier to get involved and make positive changes or to sit in the cheap seats and throw stones? 1. Those who make things happen. 2. Those who criticize those who make things happen. 3. Those...

    A CBB Member's Perspective

    nenmrancher...Sorry Tommy, I disagree with you about doing away with the federation of State Beef Councils. I think that federation should be just that people appointed by the state they represent. I think the federation and the CBB are both needed to balance out each other. From what I am...

    A CBB Member's Perspective

    What needs to happen is to do away with the Federation of State Beef Councils. It is only there to empower the NCBA over the Checkoff.
