When one declares oneself to be a conservative, one is not, unfortunately, thereupon visited by tongues of fire that leave one omniscient. The acceptance of a series of premises is just the beginning. After that, we need constantly to inform ourselves, to analyze and to think through our premises and their ramifications. We need to ponder, in the light of the evidence, the strengths and the weaknesses, the consistencies and the inconsistencies, the glory and the frailty of our position, week in and week out. Otherwise, we will not hold our own in a world where informed dedication, not just dedication, is necessary for survival and growth.

Monday Night Panel Chat - Economics

Join us Monday December 8th for a Live Blog event that you will find informative and educational! The event begins at 900 PM Eastern Time.

Other materials follow this announcement, so please scroll down and don't stop here!

A few points so you will know the format:
1) There will be a panel answering questions from the moderator. A question will be asked, and each panelist will have 1 1/2 minutes to give a response. Each panelist in turn will then have the same amount of time to respond.
2) A panelist may request time to respond to the others comments, with a 60 second allowance.
3) After each moderator question, a question will be given from the audience. Please submit your question just as you would for the chat room, and when it is time I will post it for the panel. You can address the question to one panelist, or the moderator will assign one.
4) After the formal panel chat, the chat room will be open for general chat.
5) During the panel time, the room will not be open for general chat.
6) With the chats at the site this week surrounding economics, several people have expressed their appreciation for the discussion and the "lessons" given from Craig. Please attend and participate, and there will be some good information as well as entertaining discussion.

It is obvious to me that you aren't going to be doing any 6:30am chats here, are you? LOL! Of course you aren't. I'm only kidding. I'm not kidding about being an early bird though. I get up so early by the time you folks are happily gabbing away I wouldn't even be able to think!

Have fun! :)
