This month’s Irreverent View lunch will be next Monday, October 24th at 11:45 a.m. at the Tampa Club. 

This month’s guest: Our special guest this month is State Senator Mike Bennett who represents portions of Sarasota and Manatee counties. Mike is Senate President Pro Tem and he serves on the Banking and Insurance and Criminal Justice committees – among others. He is a successful small businessman and Navy veteran who served 4 tours in Vietnam.   Mike flirted with running for Congress next year but decided the rigors of a campaign and days in Washington were more than he wanted. Mike is a no-nonsense legislator who calls it exactly like he sees it. And when I say exactly like he sees it, I mean he gives the unvarnished truth as he sees it – political correctness be damned.  Mike will speak for 10-15 minutes about current issues facing the legislature including improving the economy and legislative redistricting. He will also take a few questions about issues. This is a speaker not to be missed!

Please RSVP by noon Saturday (October 22nd) .  As always, feel free to bring a friend. There is plenty of parking (bring your stub to the lunch to get it validated for a discount). We will have a private meeting area for our lunch, just ask for the Irreverent View lunch when you arrive. The address is: 101 East Kennedy Blvd., 42nd Floor of the Bank of America Building.  The menu will be fix-priced of $15.00 pp.

 About the lunch: The lunch group is informal but we have some loose/suggested criteria. They are: You should either be a card-carrying Republican, professed libertarian, a conservative, or someone who thinks our country is currently going down the toilet because the politicians we elect are mostly a bunch of bums and morons who are more concerned with getting re-elected than they are concerned about the future of the next generation. You can be a liberal Republican, or a conservative Democrat but the rest of us may wonder what is wrong with you if you are one of those; still, you’re welcome anyway.

Please note the following: If in the event you still think Barrack Obama’s idea of change is a good thing; or if you think the occupy Wall Street protestors are a bunch of hard-working, productive, and patriotic Americans; or if you want your kids to grow up to be a trial lawyer; or if you think Social Security is anything but a Ponzi scheme, this group is not going to be right for you. As such, we ask that you please plan on packing a sack lunch and eating at your desk that day.
