Re: Take the survey - MEISSE REPLY -





WHY ARE YOU SO AFRADE OF THE TRUTH BOB,    you know playing darts is also a
random act. why dont we just put the issues on a dart board and throw darts
at it and see what we hit, or put the issues on a wheel and play the price
is right.

and if the typical return of all member survey is only 5% then that must
mean only 5% gives a rats #$% to step up and be heard and the other 95% dont
care, I cant believe that 95% dont care enough to reply to a survey that
involves their membership money and how it is spent (on what projects), and
by the way why would anyone have a AX to grid anyway, has any of the BoD's
given anyone a reason to have a AX to grind.

so you wish to only sample 200 out of 4000 members, boy glad we dont vote
for our public officals in this manner.
