That sentence reminds me of the crude jokes Cougar put online. Actually
the COOL you refer to aren't the real organic farmers out there, only the
individuals and groups (certain non profits) that squawk the loudest
about organic; usually in an effort to help fill their coffers "in
the name of helping organic farmers".

Enough trashing organic gardeners and farmers. You seem to want to group
them all together to fit some preconceived notion you have that they are
narrow-minded egomaniac eco-organic Luddites or something. Real organic
farmers, and subsistence and market gardeners nearly always dissipate
their energy digging in the dirt and making crops grow to perfection as
Nature intended, to feed themselves and make a living in the real world.
There's little room for egos and infighting in this system, sorry to
dissapoint you. Take a closer look at who this COOL you refer to really
is; you might find some of the mandatory "O" certification mongers and
profiteers doing their silly dance to the money god around the hard
working, skilled organic farmers committed to their lifestyle and
profession for the long haul.
