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.

And finally, on a scale of one to ten this rates an authoritarian eleven! A Code Pink activist faces a year in jailfor laughing at Attorney General Sessions’ confirmation hearing. Her derisive mirth was considered disruptive and an illegal form of protest.

Join your host, Jason, and celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a cold and refreshing Mexican lager while we still have favorable trade relations with Mexico! We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow evening!

Jason, Christian
Laura, Jeremiah

    random quote:

    "Talk of imminent threat to our national security through the application of external force is pure nonsense. Indeed it is part of the general pattern of misguided policy that our country is now geared to an arms economy which was bred in an artificially induced psychosis of war hysteria and nurtured upon an incessant propaganda of fear."
    Douglas MacArthur
