    Dang, I was hoping he would step down and someone competent would take his spot.

  2. Dang, I thought for once we’d get press release that had only one word in it.

  3. No.

  4. CD 6 I guess you are not man or woman enough to use your name? There are three women and one man out there trying to recall the Chairman, but they lied to try and get others to vote with them. It did not work, CD 6 we know you are very involved in that, I guess you would rather toss a wrench in the machine instead of joining to take back our Country?
