Drinking Liberally Friday January 19th

Howdy Drinking Liberals,

Join us for our regular Friday night meetup in the back bar at Piper Down starting at 6pm. I forgot to type this up earlier and so I’m typing up while mobile on my phone so this email will be short and forgive any mistakes.

As usual we have a lot to discuss, Friday we face a potential government shutdown…again. Trump is of course top of the tabloid news with paying hush money to silence an affair with a pornstar 10+ years ago. Doctors are saying some of his physical results are false, especially his weight. He is trying to legally allow religious descrimination from doctors. We all know he’s going to do more crazy stuff by the time I type this up and you all read it.

Come down Friday night and let’s discuss the weeks events while I sip a drink or two of whatever our favorite beverage is.

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

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

Utah House Speaker Greg Hughes has said he won’t seek re-election at the end of his term, so he may run for governor or congress, or go to work in the White House. https://www.sltrib.com/news/politics/2018/01/10/utah-house-speaker-greg-…

I don’t know about you guys, but this analysis on the Fusion GPS transcript that Sen Diane Feinstein released is the craziest thing I’ve read in a long time: https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/950884746082562048.html Of course I haven’t read (the now NYT bestseller) Fire and Fury yet.

Come spend some “Executive Time” with your stable genius friends at the Piper Down tomorrow starting at 6!

Drinking Liberally Meetup January 5th

Hello everyone!

Please join us tomorrow, Friday January 5th, for our first meetup of 2018, in the back room at Piper Down (1492 South State Street) from 6:00-9:00 PM. Last week we had a pretty good turnout with several first time attendees. Let’s keep the ball rolling into 2018!

There are a few things we can talk about:

While most of the rest of the country is experiencing extreme weather events, we are in the middle of another multi-day inversion and a Winter with very little snowfall. If anyone ever gets the chance to explain climate change to the President this article may help him understand that this too is a result of global warming.

Speaking of the President, the bromance with Steve Bannon seems to be over. While the President is trying to issue a cease and desist, the tell-all book’s publisher is moving up the publication date. I think the entire staff needs to strap on a helmet for this one!

Of local significance, the Crypt Keeper…I mean Orin Hatch has decided not to run for re-election! So of course Mittens Romney is scrambling to change his residency status from Massachusetts to Utah as fast as possible and it looks like the seat is his, if he wants it. (Sorry Jenny!)

Join your host, Jason, this week to discuss these topics and whatever else comes up. We look forward to seeing everyone there tomorrow evening!

Drinking Liberally SLC meets from
6:30-9:30 every every Friday in the back room of the Piper Down (1492
S. State Street).

Drinking Liberally Meetup for December 29th is back on!

Hello everyone!

We know we said that we were going to cancel to meetup this week due to the holidays but several people expressed a desire (and hopefully a commitment) to still get together so Christian and I volunteered to host this fifth Friday meetup. Therefore, please join us tomorrow, Friday December 29th, for our last meetup of 2017, in the back room at Piper Down (1492 South State Street) from 6:00-9:00 PM.

There are a few things we can talk about:

Senator Orrin Hatch“Utahn of the Year” is definitely, probably, maybe running for reelection. Or he is thinking about it. Check in next week to see if his decision has changed yet again. In related news, poor “Mittens” Romney just doesn’t know what to do!

Remember how AT&T was going to give employees each $1000 bonus as a direct result of the new tax cuts? Yeah, it turns out that was really the result of a year-long negotiation with the unionsand AT&T is currently laying off hundreds of employees instead. Did someone say MAGA?

And 3.2% beer may be on the way outif brewers stop producing it. The question is will Utah legislators normalize the Utah market or will they have us do without convenient access to purchase beer?

So, please join Christian and Jason to talk about these subjects and more. We hope to see everyone tomorrow evening!

Christian, Jason
Jeremiah, Laura

Drinking Liberally Friday (but not the next)

This Friday, in the spirit of the season, we’ll be playing a game of Santa vs Jesus. Come early so you can pick your winning team! A quick note: we will not be meeting next Friday the 29th

The Grinch came early. The GOP rushed through their tax bill and it’s now waiting for the president to sign. Of course he’s not going to sign it before the new year because then automatic spending cuts to Medicare and other programs will kick in, which the GOP knows won’t be popular in the mid-term election year. So if he signs it after the new year, those cuts won’t happen until 2019. The bill will also get rid of the individual mandate, oh, and even open up oil and gas drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. And of course with that tax bill passed, congress is heading home for the holidays before voting on a DACA fix, putting a number of Dreamers at further risk.

So it seems that in the conservative world, Santa only visits the rich and powerful.

But enough of that. This is the season to be reminded of all the good in the world, and there’s still plenty of that. And many of those good-doers will be at Drinking Liberally tomorrow, so join us starting at 6pm in the back room of the Piper Down!

Laura, Jeremiah,

Drinking Liberally Friday December 15th

Howdy Drinking Liberals,

Join us this Friday for our regularly scheduled meetup in the back bar at Piper Down starting at 6:00pm.

Oh so much to talk about this week with how the Alabama senate race unfolded leading to Doug Jones narrowly winning the seat. The first time a Democrat has won that seat in Alabama since 1992. All it took was for the so called moral majority Republicans to back a pedophile Roy Moore and as of the writing of this email he still refuses to concede. Franken has announced he’s stepping down and the Governor of Minnesota is appointing the Lt. Governor Tina Smith to take his place until a special election next November. Leaving the republicans with just a 51-49 majority until then. Despite a huge public outcry, the FCC voted today to end net nuetrality, something only big corporations actually favored. There is a lot to talk about on that and i would love to hear what you all have to say.

So join us this Friday night starting at 6pm, with your host, me (Christian).

See you then,
Christian, Jason
Laura, Jeremiah

Drinking Liberally Friday

Oh boy, where to start this week? I guess we’ll start with the Trump visit this week. He flies in with Hatch and Lee in tow and shrinks two of our national monuments by 2,000,000 acres. Of course this didn’t come out of the blue – people like Rep Bishop have been wanting this for a long time. In Trump they found their “imperfect vessel”, as Steve Bannon has called him.

But there were protests! Boy were there protests. A huge rally last Saturday, and a surprisingly-large-for-a-Monday protest waiting for Air Force One to fly into town. And there are lawsuits. So many lawsuits, you wouldn’t believe it.

Meanwhile, Senator Hatch thinks Trump is the best president ever Of course his judgement can’t be trusted, having written off Roy Moore’s pedophiliac tendencies as having happened “decades ago”. Then a couple days later Hatch said he was “deeply disturbed by the allegations” as if it was new information. I liked Michelle Quist’s commentary on Hatch http://www.sltrib.com/opinion/commentary/2017/12/07/michelle-quist-orrin…

Then there’s all the more national news we can talk about, including:

LOTS to talk about, so join us this Friday in the back room of the Piper Down starting at 6pm!

Drinking Liberally Meetup December 1st

Hello everyone!

Please join us tomorrow, Friday December 1st, for our regularly scheduled meetup in the back room at Piper Down (1492 South State Street) from 6:00-9:00 PM. There are a few things we can talk about:

In the News

Garrison Keillor and Matt Lauer were both independently fired for improper sexual behavior in the work place, joining media luminaries Charlie Rose and Bill O’Reiley. In the entertainment industry the list of fired sexual predators is even longer, including Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Louis CK and Jeremy Piven. Yet in politics, despite accusations of harassment and assault and even settlements paid out, no one has lost their job yet. It seems we hold our entertainers more accountable than our leaders.

President Trump decided to pick a Twitter fight with UK Prime Minister Teresa May when she did not appreciate his earlier re-Tweets of fake anti-Muslim images originally posted by an ultra-right fringe British party.

The FCC is going to try and kill net-neutrality again despite overwhelming public opposition.

But, perhaps most relevant, President Trump will be visiting Utah next week in order to announce his intention to reduce the Bears Ears Monument by up to 85%. And maybe Tweet disparaging comments about the Queen of Narnia or something.

Oh yeah, North Korea now has ballistic missiles capable of hitting pretty much anywhere in the U.S. Meanwhile our foreign policy towards them seems to be constructed around personal insults and existential threats.

So, join your host, Jason, tomorrow evening where we can enjoy a drink or two together as we take bets on what outrageous, narcissistic, tone deaf or bigoted things Trump will say during his visit here.

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
