The Issues You Don't Talk About Cafe Monthly Meetup

  • Jul 30, 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:

Holy Crap! There's an Ebola outbreak in Western Africa. Does this scare anybody?

Who's side are you on, the Palestinians or the Israeli's?

Is there anything more that President Obama can do to stop Russia from meddling in Ukraine? Or is Putin just cleaning Obama's clock?

What would you do with it if you somehow very quickly earned one billion dollars? And is there a marked difference between the way you'd act if you'd only earned $250,000,000 dollars?

Are police becoming too powerful and consequently abusing that power? Particularly in the wake of the Eric Garner "murder."

What's the opposite of Emasculate? Defeminize perhaps?

Who's afraid of the big bad Drone?

Should Stephen A. Smith be fired from ESPN for saying that women should take care in provoking a man to physical violence?

In one decade, the number of Missouri children living in poverty has gone from 212,369 to 302,185. Missouri is failing its children. It's that simple. Isn't this Nixon's fault? Is he a good Governor?

Why do some people vote against there own best interest?

    I also just rsvp'd yes. Thought I had done so last wk. and just realized I hadn't. Ach! So, if I'm on the waiting list tomorrow, do you discourage me from coming? I don't want to do anything unfair to those who rsvp'd on time.
