Drinking Liberally

Join us tonight for a fun-filled evening of politics under the influence at the Seattle chapter of Drinking Liberally. We meet at 8PM at the Montlake Ale House, 2307 24th Avenue E.

Tonight it will be good clean all-American politics (with any Muslims who happen to show up sent to the back of the bar). I hear that Seattle Dan and Seattle Tammy will be making a rare appearance.

Tonight’s theme song: Why Did I Choose You? by Barbara Streisand.

Not in Seattle? Check out the Drinking Liberally web site for dates and times of a chapter near you.

    PI, you should join us one of these weeks. If you come by, I’ll buy you a pint.

    As for Streisand, that’s the best thing that could’ve happened to Obama and Edwards.

    So we have a backlog of 400,000 veterans applying for treatment by the VA, and the average wait time for the 1st response from the VA is 6 months.

    So let’s get this straight. You get back from Iraq, and you have problems. You contact the VA and wait…. and wait…. and wait……

    This is how veterans are treated in Bushworld.

    Applying for legal citizenship? The wait went from 7 months to 16 months.

    Passport? From 3 weeks to 4 months.

    Since Republiconvicts hate government so much, why do they want to be involved in destroying it?

    Be prepared for America to be another 3rd world nation. The day is not that far away.

    Speaking of something liberal:

    Citigroup Chairman Robert Rubin – just sold a chunk of CitiGroup to Abu Dhabi.

    You guys remember Richard Rubin right?

    Wait… That’s right Rubin, he’s a liberal… It’s okay to sell to Abu Dhabi…

    OK… Never mind…

    Facts Support No Position Except on the Toilet:

    Did you forget who was put in charge of fixing up the VA?

    Repeat after me again. Richard C. Blum – Owner of Perini Group – Husband of ex-Milcon Committee Senate Democrat Dianne Feinstein, who, made sure her husband got the VA contract. But when he did nothing, you all blamed GWB. Unfortunately for you liberals the SF Chronicle and San Jose Mercury News exposed Feinstein and she had to resign the Milcom committee.

    Try again Factless Toilet Sitter. I’m glad you found your idiot gene today!

  5. 6


    Gimme a break pud. The VA is overloaded, and underfunded, and it is the Democrats fault?

    That is like saying WW2 was the Jews fault.

    Feinstein is not one of my favorite Senators, but compared to “The internet is a bunch of tubes” soon to be indicted / resign / plead guilty Ted Stevens she is a goddess.

    @5: Please explain what “the VA contract” is, and what a construction company has to do with poor health care delivery by the VA.

    Then kiss my ass.

  7. 10

    Proud To Be An Ass spews:

    @4: Who the fuck is Richard Rubin? And why are you disturbed that a big bank operating in the “free market” that you adore like a star struck teenager has the temerity to sell part of its action to ANYBODY THEY FUCKING WELL PLEASE?

    Is not private property sancrosanct?

    Proud To Be An Ass spews:

    @7: Funny, Piper. I can’t help but feel that the guy seeking the help was a right wingnut book burner.

    Go with god, lad.

    @5 Right wing strategy when faced with a problem.

    Lesson 1: Throw mud at everything possible, make baseless accusations, and attack the messenger. Anything except admit the obvious…..

    Lesson 2: If you are wrong all the time, you can get good at clouding the issues, because it is all you can do. Anything but accept the obvious.

    God I am glad I don’t have to buy all that right wing crap. Reality is much more to my taste……

    Roger Rabbit rarely attends DL because I can’t reach the door handle and there isn’t always someone available to lift me up.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @4 And where do you think Abu Dhabi got the money to buy Citigroup? Oil rose from $25 to $100 on Bush’s watch. The sale of the world’s largest bank to the Ay-rabs took place on Bush’s watch. Someone’s not watching the store. I wonder whoooooo???

    Mark The Redneck-Goldstein spews:

    Turns out the whole AIDS thing was built on fucking lies and made up data. The alarmism was fueled by librul fucking greed; as usual. The UN did it, and now UW admits they did it too.

    Here’s the UN lie: http://www.washingtonpost.com/.....038;sub=AR
    “There was a tendency toward alarmism, and that fit perhaps a certain fundraising agenda,”…”

    Here’s UW’s bullshit: http://seattletimes.nwsource.c.....ch28m.html

    These same institutions are now busy telling fucking lies about “global warming”. So why the fuck would anybody believe what they are saying? We certainly can’t trust the “science” they are telling us about.

  13. 17

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @5 The V.A. has had 3 secretaries of veterans affairs since 2001, all of them Republican hacks appointed by Bush.

    Mr. Blum is not, and never has been, secretary of veterans affairs. He does not run the V.A. He does not supervise contracters who do work for the V.A. He is not a contracter who works for the V.A. In fact, so far as I can determine, he doesn’t have a damn thing to do with the V.A.

    You lose, pudding head. Thanks for playing.

    P.S., where’s all this “personal responsibility” that Republicans promised us they were going to accept for how they run the government? So far, we haven’t seen any of it. Trying to get a Republican to accept responsibility is like trying to get a mortgage payment from a subprime borrower.*

    * Another fiasco that happened on Republicans’ watch.

    Puddybud spews:

    Man the liberals here are idiots with no memory. Rubin was Clinton’s Sec of the Treasury. Wow no wonder we whom think right need to continually provide remedial education to you leftist pinheads.

    The New York Times. A cruise ship went down in the Antarctic Ocean that hit the iceberg over the weekend. It sank. It had 150 people, the MV Explorer. It turns out it was a bunch of eco-warriors to look at the “evidence” of global warming. P. T. Barnum was right: “There’s a sucker born every minute.” All these environmental wackos are making millions off suckers!

    Hehehehehe Moonbats are too funny. heheheehe

    Liberals should stay out of the hard science, history and journalism fields. Stick with what you do best…. Art.

    From Wikipedia:

    As of December 2006, according to SEC filings and Fedspending. Org, three corporations in which Blum’s financial entities own a total of $1 billion in stock won considerable favor from the budgets of the Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs.

    Puddybud spews:

    Facts Left in the Toilet: More from Wikipedia

    While on the MILCON subcommitte, Feinstein voted for appropriations worth billions of dollars to firms owned by her husband, Richard C. Blum. This included millions of dollars in contracts awarded to Blum’s Perini Corporation to provide goods and services in Iraq and Afghanistan

  19. 25

    Proud To Be An Ass spews:


    (1.)You claimed Blum’s firm had “the contract” for the VA. So tell me, fucking idiot, what was “the (presumably singular for people who actually speak fucking English)contract”?

    (2.) You refered to “Richard Rubin” in post #4 above. I know who Robert Rubin is you stupid clown. Now tell me who the fuck “Richard Rubin” is.

    You seep stupid.

  20. 26

    Puddybud spews:

    Pelletmaker (TM) Please show me where I said Dick Blum was “secretaries of veterans affairs”. I said he received VA contracts to fix the VA guided by is wife when she was on Milcon. It’s public record but I realize for the one who can’t figger out ‘IF”, you have problems.

    I am so sorry your idiot gene has crossed with your I am a rabid animal gene.

    Puddybud spews:

    Dipstick Proud he’s an ASS (TM). I already posted it here three times in the past.

    1) I don’t work for you
    2) You can’t remember shit
    3) You are an idiot too. Many times here you found your idiot gene.
    4) Search the Wipes blog, you’ll find it!

    So what I got Robert Rubin mixed up with Richard Rubin. I remember many things. The last name was the important part! And since I posted the link who the crap cares!

    Proud To Be An Ass spews:

    whackawhacka pullpudder:

    1) Tell somebody who gives a shit.
    2) I can remember how to spell “Robert”
    3) Repeat 1) above till you learn it.
    4) Not my job.

    Go to your lunatic ravings in post #4. You didn’t post a link to any fucking thing.

    You drip stupid.

    Puddybud spews:

    BTW Proud You Are an ASS: My lunatic ravings prove how stupid your moronic positions are every day!

    “He’s right, it’s my wife” The quote from Rick Ensey.

    So what if my wife started a blog to spread lies about my opponent. I am a Republiconvict. That is how we do things. No just go away.

    When you can’t run on the issues, you have to lie about your opponent. Republiconvict Politics 101.

    What I would like to see is one single Republiconvict explain what a conservative is…… None of them even know.

    Lying = being conservative….
