Drinking Liberally, October 6

Hello everyone!

This week we will have our regular meetup in the back room at Piper Down (1492 South, State Street) from 6:00-9:00 PM.

In The News

This week the big news was the mass murder in Las Vegas. surprisingly, the NRA has intimated it may be receptive to restrictions on some of the modifications that facilitated the horrific number of casualties. I am not going to hold my breath that any legislation will make it through Congress but it is a different kind of debate than we have had in years.

Earlier in the week Trump traveled to Puerto Rico where he managed to belittle the territory and make light of their ongoing suffering. This was after he made a habit all week of antagonizing the Mayor of San Juan via Twitter, for some inexplicable reason.

Then there was the report that Rex Tillerson had considered resigning as Secretary of State (which he has denied) and that he called Trump a moron (which he did not deny). The honeymoon might be over.

Finally, Congress has allowed CHIP funding to expire so now nine Million poor kids will lack medical coverage. This comes on the heels of the same congress passing a $700 Billion defense budget, $37 Billion more than was requested by the Trump administration. If you are keeping score, that means children’s health is secondary to the military industrial complex. Go us!

Anyway, we look forward to tomorrow’s discussions. Join your host, Jason, for a drink or two and maybe we can take bets on who will resign from the Cabinet next!
