     I really liked it. Shameless plug for everyone to download Brigade (www.brigade.com) on their phones to continue the political debate there.

     I really appreciate this group, and would probably attend more of its gatherings if they were not on weeknights. Weekend afternoons would work better for me. Marty

     The American woman was sold a bill of goods in the 1960s by Jane Fonda and Gloria Steinhem that Wall Street exploited and Baby Boomer parents fed into, from which they have never recovered. It cost them their feminity, it made them quasi-males and stereotyped them. There isn't enough time in a day to be a good woman and have a job, so we end up with a lot of frustrated, poorly advised females. Major, resultant inadequacies imposed on the American culture is our prison population has exploded, youth have difficulty defining their roles and the family unit is ravaged. When we took the mother out of the house during the child's formative years our youth were dealt a devasting blow from which America has never recovered. Bad parenting leads to a multitute of dysfunctionalities.

     This is my first group meeting, but my first impression is favorable. The moderator was helpful in keeping the discussion/debate on track. Everyone has well-thought points to make.

     Just to listen to and put out your ideas in a public forum.

  • SFDebate Political Discussion Meetup

     This meetup is great if you have strong opinions on the topic and know a lot about it, because you'll find people who will listen to you and challenge you thoughtfully. It's also great if you don't know much about the topic and don't have strong opinions, because you'll get to learn from others and challenge them. Members come with different life experiences, and it seems at least a third of us grew up outside the U.S. Even the small talk post-debate tends to be "bigger" than usual small talk.

     Timely discussion of current events and a broad spectrum of political thought.

  • SFDebate Political Discussion Meetup

     The tendency for most people, myself included is to seek information to validate the opinions they already have but with groups like this we are able to hear the other views and the reasons for them in more then just soundbytes or talking points.

  • SFDebate Political Discussion Meetup

     What fun! A very spirited discussion in which all were encouraged to participate - and did! It was not only engaging but informative. I look forward to the next meeting not only for the lively debate but also for the convivial socializing afterward.

     I thought it was very well organized, good format, knowledgeble group; all the attendees were given opportunity to voice their views. I certainly will try to attend other Debates organized by this group.
