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.

What is a 14th Amendment U.S. Citizen?
Eve Elsbury, a lawful inhabitant, will discuss how, as peaceable inhabitants, we haven't lost control of the United States of America, but by consent have entered into contractual obligations with “The United States, Inc.“, a foreign quasi-governmental corporation located within the ten square miles of Washington DC. She will contrast the differences between the United States of America and the The United States, Inc.: the first, a lawful de jure government where all men equally enjoy inalienable rights and the other, a defacto state corporation posing as government where through legislation a new “corporate person” described in the 14th amendment as the U.S. citizen was created. Eve will discuss the lawful and legal ramifications of the standing and status of of the 14th Amendment U.S. Citizen, and conclude that this presentation is for informational purposes, and not to be legal advice.
January 18th Meeting # 488
On the Science of the Priests
David O'Neil, Author and Computer Programmer with a Mechanical Engineering Degree, will share some of the items he has learned about the biblical Samson story that convinced him it is not to be read literally. Those items include an overview of the 33 astronomic parallels he discovered in the tale. For instance, Judges 14 has Sampson rip a lion apart, which corresponds to the planet Mars passing through Leo, the celestial lion, in 1416 BC when Jupiter and Saturn were conjuncting. Additionally, Judges 15 documents the next sixty-year Jupiter/Saturn conjunction. (David notes that these planets conjunct conjunct every 20 years, but every third conjunction occurs near the same background stars, which made every third conjunction significant). He points out that during the Judges 15 events Mars retrograded, or moved backward against the background stars, near the Hyades, in Taurus. The Hyades was known to the Babylonians as a “jawbone”, which is where the biblical imagery of Samson (Mars) killing a thousand men with a jawbone originated. David will share some of the astronomic parallels found in Judges 16, which documents the following sixty-year conjunctions until 979 BC, after which King David or Solomon had the priests create the tale we now possess. He argues that it was these celestial investigations that helped turn the Israelite's away from their former paganism. David concludes that a better understanding of our early history helps to springboard and center us in this changing world. See also: https://www.laughingatthedevil.com

February 8th Meeting # 491
On the Power of Belief
Jian Li, PhD in anthropology and a Mandarin teacher, will explore the power of belief from different perspectives, including her own. She argues that we can all benefit from examining our own beliefs in the beginning of the New Year for personal growth, happiness, fulfillment, and a sense of purpose and meaning in life.
February 22nd Meeting # 493
On the Importance of Creativity
Abe Garcia, Group Creative Director at Dieste, will discuss how in today's world of global competition and complex problems, creativity is crucial and creative innovation are fast becoming requirements for personal and professional success. He notes however, that in the majority of educational systems and corporate America, creativity is perceived as secondary to many other skills. Abe argues that at this “College of Complexes” we will prove creativity is crucial to any real success, and isn't something few individuals are blessed with, but a skill we can all learn and master that is essential to promote humanity and social economic growth.
February 15th Meeting # 492
Is China Spreading its Control Over the Entire Pacific Basin?
Dale Klosterman, Ed.D, Retired Licensed Psychologist, will argue that while the U.S. and Australia appear to be distracted by other events around the world, China is making headway in its attempt to take over the Pacific Basin countries in much the same way as the Japanese tried during World War II. As Iran tries to establish a sphere of influence over the Middle East, Russia looks over Eastern Europe, and various despots attempt to control poor countries around the world, China is seizing on the opportunity to enrich itself.
