Let's Discuss the Great Mysteries of Life!

TOPIC FOR APRIL 27TH:   Should We Raise the Minimum Wage?

Since this Event is being advertised on multiple Meetup sites, there are lots of opportunities to make new friends. We sit at tables of eight or so people ... seated in chairs so it's easy to move around and mingle with others.

Possible Future Topics:

--Are people born good?

--Is Sin a man-made concept?

--Is Normality completely relative?

--Is Free Will an illusion?

 --Mandatory service - not the draft, but allowing use of Americorps, Peace Corps, military service without exceptions. Maybe even bring back the WPA. Let's get the infrastructure repaired. 

Since the Restaurant is generous enough not to charge us for a room, please reciprocate by ordering at least a snack and tipping the wait staff accordingly. Also, IHOP offers a special meal deal during these hours (we'll tell you more when we see you that day).

NOTE METRO RIDERS: The Fairfax Cirle IHOP is about a one-mile walk from the Vienna Metro (South Side) Exit. Or, exit on the North Side if you'd prefer to come by Taxi.

Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, April 27th at 3:00 PM at the Fairfax Circle IHOP for lively conversation and a light bite.

    Each event brings a different outcome. This one was a bit more animated than usual. But I'm okay with that because i know it reflects the compassion each of us has and our urge to help others. We all see the world from differing perspectives leading to a variety of ideas for solutions.

    The Affordable Care Act is in fact 906 pages long. Not the outlandish number that was stated in our meeting by one of the attendees.

    Some individuals felt the topic was not open to discussion. This limited the possibility of exchange of opinions. The policy of NO reflects the problem Congress faces in getting anything done. To see this reflected in such a group as this means we have serious national problems. I blame talk radio for much of this propaganda that the public has swallowed.

    Please excuse my having to leave so abruptly. I felt compelled to do what was best for myself and the group in that situation, and I apologize for anyone who may have felt uncomfortable/offended/disrespected by my actions.

    I believe the minimum wage should be indexed to inflation. As inflation decreases buying power the base wage should increase.
