Just some things to consider…

Much has been said about what Obama should do to hurt the Russian economy. To me the plan to destroy Russia is simple:
 
1) ban their use of coal
2) mandate that Russia goes on Obamacare
3) ban drilling on Russian public land
4) force Russia to comply with EPA and Dodd Frank regulations
5) re-define the full-time Russian work week to 30 hours
6) raise the Russian minimum wage
7) mandate overtime pay for government employees
8) Demand the Russian Government provide welfare benefits to
      unqualified citizens and Illegal immigrants

This plan is proven and has been working in the U.S. since 2009.

Gentlemen,

Due to sagging attendance I have decided to cease further attempts to plan regular gatherings.  I do hope all of you continue to read items of depth and significance.  The blog will stay open for any of you to post suggested reading items or thoughts on what you have read or current events.

The past few years have provided many good memories and much more learning than I could have ever imagined.  Thank you all for your interest and input.  Let me know if any of you ever need anything.  Hopefully, we can all get together for a reunion down the road.

Thank You!

Below are some articles that may pique your interest.

As we look forward to our next gathering on May 23rd…open discussion…I thought I would share the following articles to ponder!

 

An excerpt from the Charles Krauthammer book Things that Matter:
“The line from the Bastille to the gulag is not straight, but the connection is unmistakeable.  Which is to say that socialism, Communist brutality, and other outrages against freedom were the real long-term result of the French Revolution”
Hope you enjoy.  Be sure to post anything you have stumbled upon!  Thanks

See You Friday

Gentlemen –

We will be meeting Friday, March 28th at Chuys in the Ceader Bluff area at 5:15pm.  It has been a while.  I look forward to seeing you.  Who would have thought  the Russian Revolution would be such an applicable basis of conversation?

March 2014

Quick update…The next meeting will be on March 28th.  The discussion will be over the Russian Revolution (I believe I stated the Spanish Civil War in error on the last post).  Be sure to post your reading selections in the Comments section, in case one of us might want to pick up a copy of the book, as well.

Also, please keep Britton and his family in your prayers, as they are anxiously awaiting the birth of their new daughter, expected to arrive any day now.

Below are some recently gathered nuggets for your reading pleasure.

March for Life this Sunday, January 26 at 2:00 at CalvaryBaptistChurch (3200 Kingston Pike).  Even if you cannot march, please join us for the prayer service. 

Had a blast Friday.  Great conversation.  Decent grub.  As discussed, the August meeting will be focused on the particulars of the state administered healthcare legislation.  I need help from those out there who know of good resources that we might read the information as first hand, as possible.  Summary form is preferred, but we are definitely not looking just for an op-ed piece.  The next meeting will be the 18th or 19th of August.  Make sure I know if one works better than the other.
