Melvyn FeinThis Thursday July 31, our speaker will be Dr. Melvyn Fein, a conservative Sociology professor.

Melvyn L Fein is Professor of Sociology at Kennesaw State University.
He is a certified clinical sociologist who holds his doctorate in sociology from the City University of New York. After over twenty years of clinical practice specializing in helping individuals overcome their personal problems, he is now concentrating on the study of sociological theory and the sociology of morality. Among his recent books are “The Great Middle Class Revolution”, “Peoplization: An Introduction to Social Life”, “Post-Liberalism: The Death of a Dream”, “On Loss and Losing”, and “Human Hierarchies”. He is also editor of The Journal of Public and Professional Sociology, and writes a weekly column for the Marietta Daily Journal.

FYI – For several years, Jim Jess, Vice Chair of The Georgia Tea Party, has been writing a column in Georgia Magazine called “Liberty Notes”. Each column explains the history and intent of one of the Constitutional Amendments, or a portion of one. Georgia Magazine has now published a compilation of some of these columns in pdf form.

Action Items suggested by our friends
at Heritage Action For America
1. (The House is scheduled to vote Thursday, July 31 on a $659m Surge Alien bill) Call your US Rep and tell him to VOTE NO on the Emergency Supplemental. It does not fix the Border Security and Immigration Enforcement problems, and it does not end DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). Any legislation must End DACA, and prevent the President from expanding amnesty.

2. The VA Reform bill, the Miller/Sanders Plan, is a new entitlement, with no real reforms attached. Call your US Rep and 2 US Senators, and tell them to demand a VA fix with no new taxpayer spending.
