Don't forget to affiliate with the political party of your choice by January 4 to participate in the March 1 Colorado Caucus. Socrates Cafe is a great way to get ready for it!
This evening (Sat, 1/2) at 6:30 p.m. at DU or other times and places (we'll help you start a meeting at a time and place that works better for you after you've attended one if you want) no RSVP is required at your first meeting, walk-ins are always welcome, more info at http://Meetup.com/Colorado-Socrates-Cafe-Society (click here.)
Also, mark your calendar for January 17, Ben Franklin's birthday.
We are planning a party, but don't tell Ben! Details to follow. If you'd like to volunteer to help or sponsor, please call me, ok?

The Big Short should trigger justice against organized crime. http://www.thebigshortmovie.com/
Just saw The Big Short, great acting, great writing and film making, great movie, but take a barf bag, the behavior at top of our economic system will sicken you.
There is no statute of limitation on fraud and organized crime. 100s should be in jail right now, top management at investment banks, bank, mortgage companies, and rating agencies, Ben Bernancke and maybe Pres Geo Bush, US Senators who knew what was happening and did nothing, some even participated to great personal benefit.
This movie may finally bring justice. Go see it.
Then do what you can, at a minimum get your representatives, candidates you support, political party leaders, college presidents and professors, and editors of magazines and newspapers you subscribe to immediately, before the end of the year, go on record to take all wealth away from those who precipitated the 2008 financial meltdown. Fraud of this magnitude cannot continue to be ignored.
