Food For Thought: "The Civic Health Crisis in Texas"[NOT about health care]

Professor of Journalism at UT Austin, Regina Lawrence will discuss the civic health crisis in Texas. As many are aware there is a health care problem in Texas and elsewhere in the US, but this talk will deal with the crisis in CIVIC HEALTH - the political system in Texas, which is fueled largely by a deadly combination of ignorance and apathy.

    thought provoking! however, the presenter could only present the numbers, not solutions!

    Very well presented; an excellent speaker. Bottom line: If you didn't vote, shut up! You have no room to complain.

      I always vote but my area is so red that it is hard to feel any enthusiasm. Many don't bother since there don't seem to be enough to make a dent.

      When 15% of the eligible voters vote in local elections, my vote is particularly virulent. But I financially support my Senators in VT and MA, here in TX.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
