I found it interesting that a recent post about the Farmers Insurance commercial garnered so many responses yet my last update about how we can improve our lot resulted in exactly three. Funny how we can come together, write emails and make phone calls when we feel slighted or insulted yet beg off when it comes to doing anything that involves getting off our asses. Yep, the times, they are a changin’……
TASK FORCE UPDATE?
Upon checking my emails I saw that the Task Force had finally updated their website. I thought wow, about time….last one was early in October. After reading this latest “update” I was dumbfounded. It went like this:
UPDATE – JANUARY 15, 2014
Dear Task Force Members:
The Task Force realizes it has been a while since there has been a report on its efforts on behalf of the detecting community, however, we want to assure you that the Task Force is still working diligently behind the scenes to protect your rights and the hobby.
It has been a long road, and the current issues the TF is working on and bureaucratic road blocks the Task Force has been up against, unfortunately, have not allowed these issues to be solved as expediently as the Task force would have liked.
While the Task Force would like to share every move it makes on a public forum, such as our website or Facebook page, the TF decided that at this time, the detecting community, and the hobby as a whole would be better served by the Task Force not making it’s strategy public.
We thank you for all your support, and expect to have more information to report in the a very short time.
Task Force for Metal Detecting Rights Foundation
Why the secrecy and this after a fairly expensive one third ad in the recent Western & Eastern Treasures magazine (offering only a link to their website). If I had not been privileged to be part of the efforts of the FMDAC back in the early 80’s I might not be so critical. Today I just don’t get it. Sorry…
THE POLISH TROLL
Ah, knew it would not be long before Wally, the24/7 master troll entered into the Farmers Insurance picture and today he added this. It’s amazing what lengths an obsessed, monomaniac living in Poland will go to just to push his agenda, whatever the hell that is…. Wally:
DIGGERS SHOW TO RETURN IN FEBRUARY
Had been wondering if any of the TV detecting shows would be renewed and it looks like “The Diggers” will be on the telly next month. Apparently they’ve the best formula given that successful programs are those that have above average viewing audiences and happy, willing advertisers. My congratulations to them.
