Statement on Free Speech
Our constitution and laws encourage the freest possible exchange of opinions, ideas, and information.  In part, that recognizes our worth and dignity as human beings.  To forbid us to speak our minds demeans us and makes us more like slaves or robots than citizens of a free country.  But as important as freedom of expression is for us as individuals, it is perhaps more important to society at large.

Sept 10th                       Meeting #333
Filling the Gaps
Carol Donovan, Dallas County Democratic Party Chair, will discuss how we fill the "gender gap," which is real and well-documented.  Based on statistics, women and men often vote differently, and for different reasons. She will argue that there are many other such "gaps" amongst our electorate, and will share her observations on electoral differences based on age, race, gender and other factors. Carol concludes that an enlightened electorate is far more likely to get out and vote, and vote purposefully, which is a significant part of a democratic society.  

May 14th               Meeting #317
On the Question of Insecure Personality Markers
Dr. Chris Boldt, Mathematics Professor Emeritus, will discuss insecure personality markers, and strategies for dealing with insecurity and undesirable behaviors.   He will show five important daily decisions, and four basic contentions that reveal thirty-four insecure personality markers.   Chris will demonstrate and argue that we are the primary catalysts in terms of the quality of our own interpersonal relations.

May 7th                  Meeting #316
Property Taxes: 
Are They Necessary for a Free Society?
John R. Ames, Dallas County Tax Assessor/Collector, will discuss why it is important to pay for Property Taxes to enjoy living in a free society. He will show how the Texas Property Tax System is one of the most unique in our country, and it’s one of the reasons why Texas has avoided a state income tax all these years. John will argue and conclude that Texas citizens should be more active in how tax rates are set to insure a fair and equitable system.
