Drinking Liberally — Seattle

DLBottleGet those taxes in! And then join us tonight for another evening of politics under the influence at the Seattle Chapter of Drinking liberally.

Seattle DL meets every Tuesday at the Montlake Ale House, 2307 24th Avenue E. We begin at 8:00pm, but some folks show up earlier for dinner.

Can’t make it to Seattle tonight? There is also a Tuesday meeting of the Tri-Cities chapter. And the Tacoma chapter meets on Thursday.

With 234 chapters of Living Liberally, including twelve in Washington state and six more in Oregon, chances are excellent there’s one near you.

    These Guys Gotta Be Republicans …

    “The Colombian prostitute who triggered the scandal that has rocked the Secret Service got angry with two agents who refused to pay her full price for servicing the two of them, leading to a financial dispute over between $40 and $60, according to a government source who has been briefed on the investigation. …

    “The woman wanted to be paid for serving both agents, the source who has been briefed on the probe told NBC News. Instead, the agents would only agree to split her price ….”

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: They must be Bush holdovers. Only Republicans are this stupid — and cheap.

    Cheating on their husbands, too! Tut! tut! They deserve to lose their jobs and marriages, and end up working as minimum wage security guards.

    Sen. Conrad backs off
    plan to vote on budget
    The Hill [Washington, DC], by Erik Wasson

    Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) bowed to pressure from fellow Democrats on Tuesday and postponed a committee vote on a 2013 budget resolution, most likely until after the November elections. Conrad on Wednesday will begin a committee markup of a resolution based on the Bowles-Simpson deficit recommendations, but told reporters there is no date scheduled on which the markup vote would occur. “This is the wrong time to vote in committee; this is the wrong time to vote on the floor,” he said. “I don’t think we will be prepared to vote before the election.” …..

    Romney Fails To Rebuke Extremist’s Violence-Inciting Remarks

    Mitt Rmoney’s campaign has refused to criticize Ted Nugent for calling President Obama and members of his administration “criminals,” labeling the Obama administration “vile” and “evil,” and urging supporters to “chop off the heads” of Democrats in a talk to an NRA group.

    Nugent also employed birther language when he told the crowd, “If you can’t galvanize and promote and recruit people to vote for Mitt Romney, we’ll be a suburb of Indonesia next year.”

    The Rmoney campaign responded to reporters’ questions by tepidly saying “everyone needs to be civil” without condemning Nugent’s remarks or referring to him by name.

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: I wonder what that dead Texas mother gunned down today by a baby-thief would say about the NRA’s position that any yahoo should be able to get guns — if she could talk.

    http://usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_n.....other?lite

    I know what the NRA would say about this — they’d say that dead mother should’ve had a gun and shot back. Then we’d have gunfights in parking lots over parking spaces …

    @11 Take a break, will ya? Is it news to you that Wisconsin’s GOP legislators tried to pass a law that would allow people to buy guns without a background check and carry concealed guns in public without a permit? And what about the gun-show exemption to background check laws? The NRA has pushed hard to keep that.

    Chances are this killer got the murder weapon from her boyfriend, and chances are he bought it at a gun show. In any case, the NRA’s hard push for laws making it easier to buy, sell, and own guns makes it easier, not harder, for criminals like her to obtain guns. That’s my point.

    # 15: Given Roger Rabbit’s experience with firearms, I’d take my chances on his side over yours, any day of the week.

    Right wingers who think all Democrats and progressives wouldn’t know how to handle a firearm are deluding themselves. Just because we think it’s whacky for the NRA to dictate national policy doesn’t mean we don’t know how to use firearms.

    By the way, this looks like it’s worth watching….

    Seattle starts making a bid for a new NBA team, the country is beginning to take notice again. Three years after its release online, and four years after the SuperSonics left town for Oklahoma City, the local documentary: “Sonicsgate: Requiem for a Team” is being updated and nationally televised this month.

    CNBC has bought the rights, for a year, to broadcast the acclaimed documentary. It will air at 7 p.m. Friday, April 27, and at 7 p.m. Sunday, April 29, on CNBC….

    Sonicsgate to be televised nationally

    It’s worth noting that the Sonics and their move to Oklahoma City (now the “Thunder”) pretty much play out how the money interests handle their businesses and taxpayers over the past couple of decades.

    * The CEO complains that the local municipality isn’t giving it the love it deserves, and in “show me the money”.

    * The local taxing agencies fall all over themselves in an attempt to satisfy the owner’s demands.

    * When it gets to the point where the taxing agencies have to say “no”, then the CEO claims it’s the residents/ polititions/employees/ taxpayer’s fault, and outsources the team anyway.

    * The CEO makes a bundle from taxpayer guarantees and subsidies in the new location.

    * The CEO never feels he has to deliver a championship, or even a winning team (product). The CEO figures he and his company deserves the loyalty of the communty, no badly how he treats it.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @16 Just because I’m a Vietnam Veteran and former Army weapons trainer doesn’t mean I think everyone should have guns. In fact, my experience with military firearms in actual field conditions convinced me that most people shouldn’t have guns, because they don’t know WTF they’re doing! It’s a competency issue.

    Also, there are people who shouldn’t have guns for other reasons — for example, the perp who gunned down a mother in a parking lot while stealing her baby. There is someone who, at a minimum, lacks the good morals and good judgment that society must expect of people who have guns.

    The NRA thinks everybody should have easy access to guns. Remember the bumper sticker about how clowns and guns don’t mix? As I recall, that was their bumper sticker. It seems they don’t take their own advice.

    I dont, you pathetic fuck. But then again I am not making claims that I know what went down, and then using those claims as a basis to come to a conclusion.

    You on the other hand have a consistent habit of this – which(among other reasons) is why you are a silly pathetic fuck that is mostly ignored by anybody with a brain.
