Democracy is the device that ensures we shall be governed
no better than we deserve.
George Bernard Shaw
Take the time to read this:
In our growing fast-paced, consumer-driven society, we are forced to make important decisions everyday, and while we do not have the power to control every consequence, we are still obligated, as individuals living in a free society, to make sound assessments.
Omaha Group to Host a Monthly Informative Town Hall The NRWI (No Representation Without Information) is an organization here in Omaha that seeks to foster an environment of discovery, while providing a venue for intellectual discourse. Ultimately, they are hoping that by creating a networking venue for motivated, intellectual individuals, the community in which we live can be improved.
America is said by many to be the greatest country in the world.
If America were, in fact, of the greatest nations, what would make it so?
Perhaps it would be the freedom of its citizens to live their life as they see fit
or it could be the amazing opportunities afforded those free citizens.
It could also be the democratic election process, but it certainly would not be
the spoiled healthcare system, failed international policy, or the rampant corporate piracy.
No, it seems the reason any country could be prodigious, would be by way of its actions,
not some inherent value.
But actions are not done by this abstract notion of country, actions are done by individuals.
It is these individuals, by way of their actions, that are responsible for the claim of a country’s capabilities
As a democratic society we are obliged to be aware of pertinent issues affecting us and others.
We must, for our own sake, have the means, the time, and the energy to be aware of these issues.
The goal of NRWI is to bring people together to learn more about what is happening in the world around them.
In order to do this, town hall meetings will be held on the last Sunday of every month.
The Second NRWI town hall is on September 30th at 6:00 p.m. at the Urban Wine Company,
1037 Jones Street in the Old Market. For more information on the space,
Each month, two guests will be invited to speak on topics in which they are accredited,

The event is open to the public at no charge and will include
Food, drink, live theatre, unique local art and an edifying musical selection.
Speakers and topics to be addressed during the September 30th town hall are listed as
Doug Switzer - Constitutional Law Attorney - Nebraska’s Juvenile Court System and
