August 26th Meeting #378
American Dream or Nightmare?
Han Cheng Liu, Marketing Director, World Financial Group since 2012, Project Manager RHA Architects Inc. since 2000, (M. Arch, UT Arlington 1993, B. Arch. Tamkang University 1989) will discuss how every year hundreds and thousands of immigrants fight for their opportunity to come to America, and there are yet more undocumented people risking their lives to cross the border in order to fulfill their American dream of “a better life for themselves and their families. He questions: “How many actually made their dream come true?” Liu will show, from his point of view, how American society has changed, how many spending habits make wrong financial decisions due to lack of understanding and support, and this does not fall just to immigrants, but to established American citizens as well. He will argue that this situation is as a result of a lack of financial education, and what we can all benefit from is a financial literacy campaign, to help millions reach financial independence.

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.

September 2nd Meeting #379
Labor Day, Past, Present and Future
Gene Lantz, President Teas Alliance for Retired Americans, will discuss how he is in favor of big celebrations of Labor Day and is re-committed to making the workers movement strong. He notes that from 1947 to 1995, the American unions steadily became more alienated from the rest of the working class. In 1995, with the changes n leadership of the AFL-CIO, unions shifted directions so that, today, major union leaders demand that all unions turn outward toward the community at large. Union legislative programs are designed to benefit all workers, not just a narrow slice of union members. Gene notes for example, the major campaign of the AFL-CIO during August 2013 was to mobilize support for immigration reform! And prior to 1999, the AFL-CIO favored deportations. He argues that this turn toward the broader working class is not a simple non-inconsequential matter. Gene further argues that everyone should get behind this, because that is the only way it will work, and it has to work if there is to be a bright future for Americans.
