The Issues You Don't Talk About Cafe Monthly Meetup

  • Aug 27, 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:

Michael Brown is now buried.  Where do we go from here?

Does the convenient store robbery have any relevant relationship to the Michael Brown shooting?

Should the media be able to ascend upon a town like Ferguson the way it did? Are they partially responsible for everything that happened over the last two weeks?

Should the U.S. continue to escalate its military activities in Syria and Iraq?

Does it give any Atheist pause that the Bible says, "For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will mislead many. 6"You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. 7"For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes." ~Matthew 24:6

Is Hillary too old to be President of the United States?

Is the charging of Rick Perry, Governor of Texas, with a felony crime legitimate or just political theater?

Does anyone know what ISIS is trying to achieve? An Islamic State of massacres, beheadings and subservient women? Do most of the 50,000 members of ISIS want to live in a world like that?

The war-hawks are saying we need to eradicate ISIS.  Have we ever eradicated a terrorist group?  If we have, how do we know we have?

Who is this Dr. Ben Carson character.  Does he deserve another listening to?  What happens when right-wing conservatives embrace you?

I look forward to talking to you all.
