Drinking Liberally—Seattle

DLBottlePlease join us tonight for a pre-Thanksgiving evening of politics under the influence at the Seattle Chapter of Drinking liberally.

We meet at the Montlake Ale House, 2307 24th Avenue E. Starting time is 8:00 pm, but some folks will show up as early as 5:00 pm to watch the Republican melee debate and eat dinner (not necessarily at the same time). I’ll try to live-blog the debate.

Can’t make it to Seattle? The Tri-Cities chapter of Drinking liberally meets every Tuesday night. The Bellingham Chapter also meets tonight. And tomorrow the Burien chapter meets.

With 227 chapters of Living Liberally, including twelve in Washington state and six more in Oregon, chances are excellent there’s one near you.

    Has anyone seen Reichart’s ads? He seems to be testing out the Tea Party slogans. He’s got video of him making a passionate speech to Congress. It’s probably one of those speeches members give where the Congress is completely empty.

    Looks like he’s not even going to try to campaign on the “moderate” label anymore.

    And why is he spending TV add buys now? He doesn’t even know yet what his district will look like, or who his opponants will be.

    Back in 1998, Alabama spent almost $167,000 per job to get Mercedes to locate a factory there.

    But after enactment of it’s controversial “show me your papers” law, Alabama’s investment might now be wasted.

    Police pulled over an executive from Mercedes, and when he couldn’t produce his passport (it was in his hotel room), they promptly arrested him. He was only released when his colleague went to the hotel room, secured the passport, and delivered it to the police. But the Mercedes executive still has to report for a court hearing charging him with failure to carry the required documents so they can be produced on demand.

    Boeing is still being very quiet about where it’s going to build the new 737-MAX. Several sites in Washington State are under consideration, including the current 737 assembly line on the shores of Lake Washington in Renton, as well as several locations in Snohomish County (Arlington?) and Moses Lake.

    Of course, lots of other locations in the country are competing as well. This includes the perinial competitors of Charleston, S.C. (home of the 2nd 787 assembly line), Wichita, Kansas, and Mobile, Alabama.

    Well, we can cross Mobile off the list, for now. 737 buyers come from all over the world, and their engineering and delivery teams would make frequent visits to the production site, and open up offices either in nearby Boeing facilities or outside office space.

    If Boeing has any sense at all, it won’t put it’s customers in a position of being arrested and prosecuted just because they left a passport back at the hotel room.

    The Wild Olympics Campaign is one of the cooler things going on right now and they’ve got a few shindigs coming up.

    Our Olympic Peninsula watersheds offer the last and best remaining habitat for native fish and wildlife. They provide resilient strongholds for salmon and steelhead as global climate change stresses threatened and endangered Olympic stocks. They supply clean, cold drinking water to local communities. Scientists have identified these watersheds as vital to the health and recovery of Hood Canal and Puget Sound.
    The Peninsula’s forest watersheds and rivers are also prized backcountry recreational destinations. Whether it’s fishing, hunting, camping, hiking, kayaking, horsepacking, bird watching or backpacking, these scenic treasures draw tens of thousands of visitors each year. They also provide a steady and sustainable flow of income to local economies. Most importantly, local families and people everywhere want our wild Olympic natural heritage protected for future generations to enjoy.

    Huntsman’s actually getting some airtime before tonight’s debate. CNN’s interviewing 3 of his 7(?) kids right now.

    You won’t believe the TV ad Romney ran in New Hampshire.

    http://video.msnbc.msn.com/nig...../#45404837

    Here’s what happened: In a 2008 campaign speech, Candidate Obama quoted a statement made by John McCain for the purpose of criticizing McCain. What Romney did was take a video clip of that speech and inserted it in his ad — edited to make it look like the McCain quote is a statement made by President Obama. You’ve got to wonder why the Romney campaign attempted such a dishonest stunt, because, as Rachel Maddow says in the video, they surely knew they wouldn’t get away with it — and they didn’t; the objective media are all over them about it.

    What happens if the lady who claimed she miscarried is lying? Her mother says she is a compulsive liar.

    Stebbins said Fox, whom she parented for 10 years, has a pattern of exaggeration. “My daughter is a compulsive liar,” Stebbins said. “She’s a wannabe drama queen.”

    U R the missing link!

    How wrong does this yay-hoo need to be? How badly does he need to be humiliated on these comments by ME(!?)…probably the least able commenter here!

    Getting eviscerated by Steve, rhp, ylb, blue john, darryl, carl and the bunny must give this masochist some sort of mis-shapen satisfaction.

    Things I post as comments are verified, come from credible sources and though they can and sometimes are (rarely) found to be inaccurate this loon’s unhinged rantings generally defy all reason and logic…blaming civizations woes on whatever Democrat is in the sights of the puddypussy’s REAL higher power…the drug addled Rush Limbaugh or the disgraced and discredited lunatic Glenn Beck…as much as the puddypussy claims fealty to teh jesus christ as his lord and savior…the puddypussy repudiates IN EVERY COMMENT HE POSTS…in each and every comment he posts the puddypussy repudiates the christ message and ideal. EVERY FUCKING SINGLE ONE. Some kind of christan example this troubled human is.

    So seriously, to the real person who inhabits the character of the puddybuddy…just stop. You need help, go get it. Clearly you are not a well man.

    It’s all on HA rujax, your eviscerations were P R I C E L E S S!

    Birmingham Alabama is the county seat of the bankrupt county. They voted big time for ObamAA+

    The black valedictorian was from a Little Rock suburb that voted big time ObamAA+ and the skuul district is led by DUMMOCRAPTS.

    Just yesterday you screamed about the teacher’s union head and how Heritage was not displaying the truth. Well it was his words and it was directly taken from youtube. His exact words are on other web sites!

    Then later when I had to go out you called me a liar. Yet you know nothing of government programs for busy overseas travelers.

    This is why you are a moron!

    Please tell me…oh wise one…please…

    ..WHAT THE FUCK DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE IF A COUNTY IN ALABAMA THAT WAS BANKRUPTED BY A RAPACIOUS FINANCIAL INSTITUTION…WHAT THE FUCK DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE THAT THAT COUNTY VOTED FOR OBAMA?

    What sort of weird, fucked-up equivalency does that generate in the feeble hate-addled brain of yours?

    I just have to know how that works.

    Does this rujax moron actually understand what he writes?

    King County WA continuously votes DUMMOCRAPTIC. So does the King County Council lean DUMMOCRAPTIC or Republican?

    So in Alabama, the plurality puts certain people who vote similarly into office. These are the people who bankrupted the county, something lost on rujax.

    Puddybud spews:

    This one too…this means WHAT?

    It was you who claimed the black valedictorian was inhibited from giving her speech. Yet when you visit the voting records the place overwhelmingly wanted ObamAA+. Then when you visit the skuul board, it wasn’t leaning Republican.

    This is why rujax is a moron! He needs to be spoon fed!

    Nope, you dope. Epic Fail on two counts. (ps…we were NEVER ever talking about King County. A classic example of how the puddywuddyduddypussy twists and obfuscates.)

    Again…what does voting for Obama have to do with either of your two specious examples.

    Explain please.

    Puddybud spews:

    OMG rujax, I was making a comparison with King County and who they elect locally from who they elect nationally and you are too dense to figger it out.

    does voting for Obama have to do

    EVERYTHING. They vote the party ticket down the line. These local DUMMOCRAPTIC peeps were in office when you brought up the other issues outlined above.

    You are truly a simplistic moron!

    See ya!
