Drinking Liberally Friday

Happy Thanksgiving, liberals! If you celebrated with family, were you able to heed the advice of some members of congress and “set the table for civility“, or did you let someone in your family get under your skin? Or did you just avoid political discussions altogether?

Come join your hosts Laura and Jeremiah in a friendly environment this Friday the 24th in the back room of the Piper Down starting at 6pm.

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 Friday Nov 17th

Drinking Liberals,

Join us tomorrow night for our regular Friday night meeting in the back bar at Piper Down 1492 S. State St starting at 6pm.

As always there is a multitude of things to talk about. The list of celebrities and public figures being accused of sexual harassment continues to grow. Yet it is still crickets when you ask anyone on the right if they believe any of Trumps multiple accusers. Speaking of Trump he just got back from his Asia tour and continues to tweet bizarre and polarizing comments. It gets hard to type up what ridiculous thing he just did when he continually one-ups himself every day. I just watched a Patton Oswalt comedy special where the comedian likened Trump to sour cream in a sauna. Because making jokes about him spoil too quickly due to his escalating madness.

So join us tomorrow as we discuss the weeks current events while sipping your favorite beverage or two.

See Friday Night,
Christian, Laura
Jason, Jeremiah

Drinking Liberally tomorrow

Hello Liberals,

This weekend we celebrate veterans who have served in the name of this great American experiment. We have a number of veterans within our chapter, so let’s get together and raise a glass to them, and if any join us tomorrow night, buy them drinks (even if it’s coffee)!

We just had an election, which means we have a new representative in congress. Nothing too surprising in Utah (as far as I know), but there were some races outside of Utah that were, especially in Virginia. So we can talk about those. Or in less happy news, we can talk about what embarrassment the administration has wrought on this most recent trip to China. Or the Mueller investigation progress. Or the latest mass shooting.

Whatever you want to talk about, join us this Friday in the back room of the Piper Down (1492 S State). Jeremiah and Laura will be there starting at 6pm, stop by any time until around 9pm!

See you tomorrow!
Jeremiah, Laura,
Christian, Jason

Drinking Liberally Meetup November 3rd

Hello everyone!

Please join us tomorrow, Friday November 3rd, for our regularly scheduled meetup in the back room at Piper Down (1492 South State Street) from 6:00-9:00 PM. Boy, do we have a lot to talk about!

In the News

Hollywood icons and more are dropping like flies, er… I mean “seeking therapy” as accusations of sexual harassment and sexual assault, some dating back decades, are finally seeing the light of day. Here is to hoping that we can finally destroy this institutionalized misogyny in our society that effects all girls and women regardless age, gender race, socio-economic status and so on.

We have the first two indictments of Trump insiders, Manafort and his lackey, in the federal investigation into ties between the campaign and Russia. And like any good crime drama, they have had an informant wearing a wire on the inside for months. These indictments probably will not be the last!

We now get to look at the GOP budget plan that they hope to pass in two weeks! Remember when 18 months of hearings for the ACA was not enough time for the GOP to study the bill way back in 2008-09? The way it looks, the Republicans aren’t even pretending at fiscal responsibility anymore as it will add $1.5 Trillion to the debt in order to give huge tax cuts to the wealthy and to corporations.

We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow evening! Join your host, Jason, as we discuss these topics and more!

6:30-9:30 every every Friday in the back room of the Piper Down (1492

Drinking Liberally Friday

Join us tomorrow in the back room of the Piper Down for another round of Drinking Liberally!

Is it Fake News that a majority of Democrats now view President Bush favorably? We should probably talk about that.

Rep Rob Bishop wants to gut the Antiquities Act, while the National Park Service is considering a $70 entrance fee that would affect most of Utah’s national parks.

In booze news, the Utah Substance Use Advisory Council was considering a tiered approach to pending 0.05% blood alcohol law, but decided against it. http://www.sltrib.com/news/2017/10/24/experts-say-lighter-penalties-just… A slim majority of Utahns support the law, so it may just get implemented without further fussing.

See you tomorrow night starting at 6pm!
Laura, Jeremiah
Jason, Christian

Drinking Liberally on Friday the 13th

Tomorrow is Friday the 13th, but hasn’t the whole year felt like one horrible Friday the 13th? Join us Friday as we raise good spirits in an attempt to exorcise the bad spirits this year has brought.

There’s a lot of news to discuss, from whomever missed their daycare shift in the white house, to what seems like Trump hinting at what I’m sure he sees as “cutting his losses” in Puerto Rico. Except you can’t do that Donald; you’re the president and these are your people. He said the situation represents a “total lack of accountability”. I’d say it does.

Join Laura in the back room of the PIper Down starting at 6pm!

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!

Jason, Christian, Laura, Jeremiah

Drinking Liberally Friday

Just a quick reminder that we’ll be meeting this Friday in the back room of the Piper Down. We can talk about Rep Chris Stewart’s deleted tweet, “Laughing. Liberals going nuts after prez UN speech. His idea = defend freedom. Their respond = drink 18 glasses of water and wet pants.” Yes, water is what we’re drinking due to this administration. We need lots of it to offset the other stuff we’re drinking.

We can also discuss our former Governor, Jon Huntsman, who was confirmed as ambassador to Russia. Or the tax system proposal. OR the fact that the Graham-Cassidy bill was shut down before a vote!

Join Jason and all your liberal friends this Friday starting at 6!

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.

Jeremiah

+ Laura, Jason, and Christian

Drinking Liberally September 15th

Hi there Drinking Liberals,

First things first, we’d all like to thank Dr. Kathie Allen running for Congress for coming out last week and speaking with us all and all that came to attend.

This week we will be having our regular meetup in the back bar of Piper Down 1492 s. State St. starting at 6pm. There is always more than enough in the news lately to talk about. So come down and let’s talk about what’s going on while we sip a drink or two of our favorite beverage.

See you Friday night,
Christian, Laura,
Jason, Jeremiah
