On the Third Thursday of each month, join a crowd of thinkers for some good food, an experience in film like none you have ever seen, some quality conversation that will undoubtedly follow the film, and previews and a vote on the next month's film.  Attendees are encouraged to eat dinner with Pancho's, but the film experience is free otherwise.

 

Previous films have included "The War on Whistleblowers" and "State of Mind: Psychology of Control."

Dangers and Threats to American Liberty and Education - Common Core

Hunt Institute, a private lobbying group.

Despite the participation of the NGA and NCSSO, the Common Core standards are NOT state-led initiatives, as proponents of Common Core would have you believe.

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.
