Drinking Liberally during difficult times

Like a bad horror movie franchise that gets worse and worse with each installment, the Republicans are proposing a new healthcare bill to repeal and replace the ACA. This bill is so loathed it even has many insurance companies in opposition, but it might not be enough to kill it. Even if you don’t think you’ll be affected by this bill, you probably have someone close to you who will, and not with great outcomes. So now’s the time to call Senators Hatch and Lee.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is recommending shrinking Bears Ears, and the state of Utah wants it to be shrunk by 90%! its current size. I’ve said it before – Utah, with its embarrassment of riches when it comes to outdoor beauty and Native American archaeological sites, is openly hostile to tourism. http://www.sltrib.com/news/environment/2017/09/17/utah-quietly-tells-fed…

In other Utah news, Wellsville will “revise” it’s annual reenactment of Mormon settlers slaughtering Native Americans, so that’s some progress. http://www.sltrib.com/news/2017/09/19/gehrke-outcome-of-wellsville-sham-…

And in BIG Utah news, BYU will sell caffeinated soft drinks for the first time since the 1950’s. Gee, Wally, that’s really swell!

Let’s get together to discuss ways we can help those affected by the recent hurricanes and earthquakes, and remind each other that we’re all in this (crazy time) together.
