Description:

The topic of this meeting was “Election Results and Politics” and was moderated by Dirk Nebbeling, long time humanist and “New Deal Liberal Democrat living in West MI.” Dirk felt that there was some cause for elation in the results of this recent election. Much was made of the fact that the pundits and prognosticators were woefully inaccurate in their predictions on many aspects of the various election outcomes.
