We had a very active discussion on topics ranging from water rights, to Jade Helm. In fact, too many to list, however there were many very interesting ideas, and everyone shared their opinion. Believe it or not, getting ones voice heard helps relieve tension. I’m sure we’ve all needed to vent, and in part, this is a purpose of these meetings. Bring your ideas to the next meeting, August 4th, 2015, and share.
One other important purpose is comradery, at times we feel alone in our suffering over how our government is turning our country inside out; what was wrong is right and what was right is wrong. For those under 30, these things may not be so obvious, but for the rest of us it is like living in a Orwellian nightmare. Let it be known that the meetings are not a pity party, we discuss what can be done to solve our problems.
One major way to get things back on track is communication. Not everyone is fond of things like Facebook or Twitter, even visiting a website can be asking a lot. For some, email is as far as it goes, but, that is ok too. As it is, communication of ideas may be done however it works for you. Don sends out email, sometimes lots of email. He copies links to important information and gets it out to as many as he has on his email list. If email works best for you, simply click the sign up button on the BurlesonCountyTeaParty.org Facebook page and be added to what is to become the newsletter list. Don’t forget to click like while you are there to get updates directly on Facebook every time there is a new post. Whatever works for you, just be sure to spread the word, get this information out to everyone you can, be it on Facebook, Twitter, email, smoke signals, or whatever.
This month’s meeting had a few new faces, sorry, I am the worst to remember names but these will be added in the future. We also had Curtis Doss as our guest speaker, he explained the duties and functions of the tax collectors office. This was very informative, I think we all learned something. Thank you Mr Doss, we hope you can come see us again soon. The same goes for everyone, we hope to see you at the next meeting!
