The Issues You Don't Talk About Cafe Monthly Meetup

  • May 28, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Change of Venue!!!!  We will be meeting at Chevy's Fresh Mex tonight!

As usual there is a lot to talk about.

You can all look forward to the regular appearance of the "Flying 800 Pound Gorilla." The egg timer that can't seem to keep time and the "One Minutes."

"One Minutes" are an opportunity for you to introduce yourself and tell us for approximately one minute, what is on your mind. You can talk for one minute or less about anything from a hang nail that's been bothering you, to your explanation of the meaning of life, but you only have one minute.

Remember the rules:

Bring your voice and passion, but leave your anger and condescension at home.


Be respectful to everyone during discussions)

If you get angry at differing opinions, please realize that this is not the place for you and kindly do not attend.

Eat, drink and be merry and tip well if you can.

We don't have to leave as friends, but we can't leave as enemies.

Here are some of the topics we could explore:

What's with the fighting in hockey anyway?  I don't get it.  And I like hockey.  I think I like international hockey better.  No checking and fighting.  Some call it figure skating with sticks and a puck.

Is anyone else annoyed with Russia?  What type of game do they think they are playing.  Is the annexation of Crimea a life a death situation.  I do not understand Putin.  

What is wrong with America?  Could the GOP really take the Senate?  I was playing golf with one of my very good, very intelligent and very conservative friends and he still believes Faux News is a viable news source.  He still has no problem spouting their misinformation.

If you win a billion dollars is it really no different than winning $500 million? A billion dollars puts you in a whole different class of people.

Makeup is amazing.  I just watched a slideshow of porn stars without makeup where they had one (all fully clothed, instagram type) photo without makeup and then one with makeup and the difference is amazing.  Anybody could be a porn star. Would you agree?

Nick Cannon does White Face! Or does he?  Is it the same as a white person doing "Black Face?" 

Is President Obama emboldening nations like North Korea, Iran and now Russia, to perform these dangerous experiments without consequence to their actions.  Obama has no stomach for war.  Are some being naive in believing that we can live in a peaceful world?

I read a story on why a Ron Paul Libertarian delegate in 2012 has now become a stone-cold bleeding heart liberal. Is this a natural progression?

I look forward to talking to you all.
