Drinking Liberally tomorrow

We’re back this week! Join us this Friday in the back room of the Piper Down starting at 6. However, we won’t be meeting June 2nd (next Friday). Piper Down is having their Pride Party that Friday.

Tomorrow we can talk about all the candidates vying for Chaffetz’s seat. I’m still wondering the real reason he’s vacating his seat. We’ll have to see what comes out of Strawberry C. In other local news, a new party has formed to be the party for centrist Utahns, called Utah United Party. The Drinking Liberally hosts have no intentions of starting a Drinking in the Middle of the Road chapter.

One last thing. Save the Date for Saturday’s Voyeur on July 21st! More details to come.

So come join Jeremiah and Laura tomorrow night!

Drinking Liberally SLC meets from 6:00-9:00 every every Friday in the back room of the Piper Down (1492 S. State Street).

Drinking Liberally this Friday

Another crazy week. Let’s start locally. 400+ new laws went into effect on Tuesday, including some of the new liquor legislation (no .05 yet though), and an asinine law that makes doctors mislead patients seeking an abortion. In better news around women’s health, federal judge Dee Benson has signed an order barring Utah from defunding Planned Parenthood. Interior Secretary Zinke spent 3 days in Utah to tour both Bears Ears and the Grand Staircase Escalante monuments. Oh, and senator Hatch essentially called Americans greedy for wanting healthcare.

Then there’s all the national and international stuff, like French election, U.S. arming the Syrian Kurds, and of course the big news nationally, Trump firing FBI director Comey the day before meeting with the Russian foreign minister. This is of course *after* Comey asked for additional resources for the investigation into Russia’s role in the Trump campaign.

So join Jeremiah and all your liberal friends this Friday in the back room of the Piper Down from 6 to 9.

Jeremiah, Laura,
Christian, Jason

Drinking Liberally Meetup Reminder, May 5

Hello everyone!

Please join us for our weekly gathering in the back room at Piper Down (1492 South State Street) from 6:00-9:00 PM. This week we have a lot to talk (drink) about! I know I sure can use some decompression!

In The News

The big topic will probably be the House passing Trump’s repeal and replace of Obamacare. When the ACA was passed in March of 2010 the GOP complained about how after a year and a half of the political process it was still rushed and that they were voting en masse against it because it had not been properly vetted yet. I don’t think they get to ever use that excuse again. Their vote today includes provisions worked out through back room deals and secret meetings, and will not include any financial analysis by the CBO. So, zero vetting. I wonder how many of those representatives are going to be shocked to discover that their coronary deficiency will count as a pre-existing condition?

This week we also got James Comey testifying before Congress. Again. This time around he says Russia is our biggest threat and his media blitz eleven days before the election, that revealed details of the FBI investigation into Clinton but never mentioned the FBI investigation into the Trump campaign, is now Bill Clinton, Loretta Lynch, Huma Abedeen and Anthony Wiener’s fault. I bet the next time he testifies he will rope in Elizabeth Warren, Michael Moore and the cast of SNL too.

There is also another police shooting of an unarmed black kid named Jordan Edwards, outside of Dallas. At least this time the police department immediately revealed the false statements and attempted cover up and fired the officer. We are still waiting on criminal charges though.
