Drinking Liberally this Friday:Valentines for Trump

Join us this week for our regular Friday meetup at the Piper Down. Laura will be bringing supplies so we can send “Valentine messages” to the president. Like, I don’t know…

Roses are red,
The White House is white,
Is Putin your puppetmaster,
Or is it Bannon and the alt-right?

Rep Jason Chaffetz keeps popping up in my feeds and news items. Whether he’s meeting with Trump to talk about repealing the Bears Ears wilderness protection because of the “hardship it creates for Utahns” or co-sponsoring a bill to abolish the Department of Education, so his townhall tonight should be pretty interesting.

Speaking of Bears Ears, Patagonia is abstaining from the Outdoor Retailer convention as long as it’s held in Utah, and OR is shopping around for a new state. Both cite lack of respect for public lands and conservation by Utah’s leaders. Many of our politicians are saying “so what if they leave?”, but it’s a big deal because it pumps millions of dollars into our economy each time it’s here, to say nothing of the jobs it creates. If OR leaves, downtown businesses will suffer. Between decisions like this and our terrible air quality, Salt Lake won’t be in the top 10 places to live for very long.

Join Laura and Jeremiah tomorrow so we talk about all this and more while making our Valentine messages.
