We had a great first meeting this past Sunday...so in the interest of drawing more folks, here's the next meeting date announced earlier.

DECEMBER 9! It's a Sunday. We'll meet in the afternoon at a location to be decided in the coming week. I'm thinking we'll head south of the river in the interest of accomodating the southern city dwellers.

There is a short poll below! I don't drink for medical reasons, but am open to meeting at a bar or coffeeshop either one. What's the consensus?

Thu Nov 15, 2012 at  9:04 AM PT: Meeting Details!

This will be a joint meeting between the SA group and the CenTex group, so it should be a great and fun time to meet some fellow Kossacks!

Date: December 9, 2012

Time: 2pm-5pm

Location: Phoenix Saloon

193 W. San Antonio St, New Braunfels TX 78130

There will be a singer/songwriter playing his regular gig that afternoon as well, but there's no cover so we should be okay.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    will we be able to get access to OFA's voter info, either as a group or through the Dem party machine? Could save a lot of time, having that to build on.

    And I would love to help get Cornyn kicked to the curb, as well as Kay Granger.

      i will try and look into that.

      i'm not an expert at any of this....i'm just the person who clicked all the buttons to form the group :) any advice or ideas are welcome.

      i guess i'm saying, "don't assume i know more...you very well may have a great idea i haven't thought of and would love to hear..."

      I can't wait to see what we do in the coming years. in the words of a famous man who got here as quick as he could,

      "you can all go to hell, I'm going to the centex kossack meet-up."

      at least, I think that's the quote. it's so hard to source things on the internet :)

    who are we running against perry next round? if the state party hasn't started thinking about this yet, we should help them think.

    hell, "helping them think" can be a good general goal.

    texans like full volume, full throated, "i'm right and you can go to hell" common sense policy. I think if we put forward dems who don't blink when asked about our values, we'll win over some folks who don't vote for the guy/gal who seems wishy-washy.

    for example, if you're a conservative against the ACA, why are you opposed to free-market solutions to our health crisis? this bolsters insurance companies and creates customers for capitalism. Are you against capitalism? Why are so many conservatives in favor of letting moochers flood the ER? Why does Rick Perry hate the free market? Why is he in favor of letting folks get a free ride on my dime?

    I want to see a republican get primaried over this stuff. If we frame it right starting now, we can watch their own base adopt our positions. There's no reason conservative christians can't be for progressive values if the semantics fit for them.

      for the next meet-up, i'll bring a list of "top 5" progressive issues (obviously, this list could be argued) and we can brainstorm better framing arguments. Too often I think progressives shoot ourselves in the foot by playing into established buzzwords and semantics that turn on the choir and turn off the congregation.
