Drinking Liberally — Seattle

DLBottlePlease join us tonight for another evening of politics under the influence at the Seattle Chapter of Drinking liberally. Tonight we’ll go out of our way to ignore the Oregon primary, given that the presidential primaries are settled and there isn’t even a Senate or gubernatorial race happening. But there is plenty of local, regional and national politics to keep us engaged for the evening.

We meet every Tuesday at the Montlake Ale House, 2307 24th Avenue E. Starting time is 8:00pm, but a few folks show up earlier for dinner.

Notice: Transpartisan Alliance Monthly Salon for May is “Earth’s Natural Resources: Power Down, Power Up, Power Over or Power With?” It’s this Wednesday, May 16, 6:30-9:30 PM in the Conference Room, Intiman Theater, Seattle Center. Panelists are Derik Andreoli-Energy Transitions Northwest (ETNW), David Wright-BCRA Design/Co-Founder-Sustainable Ballard, Rick Forschler-SeaTac City Council, and Joe Tomlinson-Physicist/Independent Researcher.

Can’t make it to Seattle tonight? There are other DL meetings this week. The Tri-Cities chapter of Drinking liberally meets every Tuesday night. Drinking Liberally Tacoma meets this Thursday.

Next Monday there are meetings of the Olympia, Yakima, and Shelton chapters.

With 232 chapters of Living Liberally, including twelve in Washington state and six more in Oregon, chances are excellent there’s a chapter near you.

    Speaking of “liberal” . . .

    “I’m for Mitt Romney,” Bush told ABC News this morning as the doors of an elevator closed on him, after he gave a speech on human rights a block from his old home — the White House.

    Talk about burying the lede.

    Attendees to George W. Bush’s speech on human rights were treated to a complimentary series of water boarding and then whisked off to a black CIA interning facility in eastern Europe where they shall remain until John Yoo issues an opinion the Dark Lord, DICK Cheney, wants.

    I can’t make it (as usual), but I hope you discuss Boener’s new tax/spending cut proposal. He wants to make the Bush tax cuts permanant, cut some more taxes on the rich, and cut spending on the poor and middle-class. In other words, class warfare.

    You would have thought we would have settle this in the oompromise a few months ago, which put off further grandstanding and brinksmanship on the budget and debt ceiling default until after the election. But Boener wants to renig – of course. He’s threatening to force a default if he doesn’t get his way.

    Why? Is he just trying to granstand for the benefit of the tea party folks? Does he really think that giving tax cuts to the wealthy at the expense of the middle-class is a good election-year tactic? Or is he simply trying to distract us from the talking about what a poor predident Romney would be – given his history of forming a gang assault on a gay guy, being a first-class chicken-hawk for himself and his sons during a time of war, or tying the family dog to the top of the car.

    Oh, a hearty early congratulations to the Nebraskan GOP for the inevitable Deb Fischer (endorsed by you betcha!) victory in the GOP senate primary.

    It is not easy for any state to top the Indiana GOP’s nomination of Mourdock, but the competition for dumbest state in the GOP is fierce and Nebraska is promising to take the title from Indiana in just one week.

    The asshat troll, in spite of himself, is right not to trust Mitt (R-Money):

    In advance of Mitt Romney’s fundraising swing through Florida tomorrow Democrats are highlighting one of the business ventures of Bain Capital while Romney was in charge: Dade Behring, which, saddled with debt, wound up shuttering two medical technologies facilities in Miami. Some 850 jobs were lost, while Bain walked away with $242-million – an 800 percent return on its investment

    The Dade Behring case has been well-documented, but here’s a new wrinkle: The company under Bain’s leadership sought and received millions of dollars in tax breaks for creating jobs in Puerto Rico – shortly before closing it’s facilities, costing nearly 300 jobs.

    The company in 1997 received a $3-million federal tax break aimed to promoting job creation in Puerto Rico. It also received a $4.1-million tax exemption from Puerto Rico in 1997 in the name of job creation. Dade ceased its operations in Puerto Rico in the first quarter of 1998.

    http://www.tampabay.com/blogs/.....d-hundreds

    But our dear asshat troll has no choice but to throw the lever for R-Money due to Mitt’s support of the Ryan plan which helps the “job creators” at the expense of programs for the poor (62 percent of all cuts in the “plan”). You know such bad stuff like food stamps, school lunches, wic, head start, public housing, medicaid and the like.

    He like that.

    Here you go lads!

    MIAMI – Court records show George Zimmerman had a pair of black eyes, a nose fracture and two cuts to the back of his head after the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
    The medical records were part of evidence released Tuesday that prosecutors have in the second-degree murder case against Zimmerman.

    Isn’t it interesting that the race baiters here are silent on this? Sharpton, Jackson your heroes??

    Michael spews:

    Sharpton, Jackson certainly aren’t my heroes and I wanted Zimmerman to go to court. If we see more things like this, then maybe the shooting was justified and he should go free. Or maybe he got those wounds from a teenager who was fighting for his life. It really doesn’t prove much either way.

    At the same time, the president’s salary has surged 67 percent in the past six years, not counting a recent raise. Add in travel and some other expenses, and Newton B. Jones received more than $600,000 last year, putting him at the absolute top of the presidents of the dozen biggest unions in the country.

    Many relatives of union officers also ride the payroll.

    So now we see those union dues at work!

    @5 Looks like M. Rmoney was pretty good at gaming the system. Which brings us to the point I want to make. Conservatives love to talk about how the rich get that way by “working hard.” This is pure nonsense, of course. No wage job pays enough to make anyone “rich” by any conventional understanding of what constitutes “rich.” Nowadays, the most common career path into the upper class is finance, and people who “work” in finance make their money by manipulating money — not by starting companies, creating jobs, or creating new wealth. See, for example, the guys who spent millions (some of which, no doubt, was public subsidies) to lay a fiber optic cable between Chicago and New York so they could execute arbitrage trades a couple millionths of a second faster. (Light travels at a fixed speed, so the only way your supercomputer can beat the other guy’s supercomputer to the punch on the trading floor is by shortening the route that data-carrying light has to travel.) You gotta wonder why they went to all this trouble and expense when it would have been easier and cheaper to move the Chicago Options Board to New York City, or the New York Stock Exchange to Chicago — which makes you strongly suspect these geniuses figured out a way to make taxpayers pay for the whole thing in the name of creating a few hundred temporary construction jobs. Conventional methods of amassing wealth became passe decades ago — virtually as soon as Republicans took over our government with the advent of Reaganism in the 80s — and there’s hardly a millionaire businessman today who isn’t sucking on the public teat in some fashion or other. That’s exactly how government got so big and why we can’t seem to make it smaller or less expensive. Working hard? That’s for saps and suckers. I figured that out years ago. That’s why I don’t work anymore and spend my time staring at a computer screen and occasionally pushing little chits representing so-called “financial assets” (i.e., stock shares) in endless and meaningless circles. That’s how everyone else makes money now, and I figure if you can’t lick ‘em, join ‘em! Work is history. Look how much richer the rich have gotten since 2007. Look how many of the unemployed are still unemployed. There is no work for workers anymore. There’s only financial games.

    @39 The author of Genesis, who apparently was human and therefore fallible, guessed the world was 6,000 years old. Probably to make sure nobody who could contradict him was still around (as opposed to saying the world was 60 years old). Based on best available science, it appears he was off by roughly 13.7 billion years, but that’s actually not so bad given the state of science then. Reading the Bible is like reading about Caesar’s military campaigns; makes for interesting reading, but as a technical manual it’s a bit out of date, as our knowledge and capabilities have advanced a bit since then

    @48
    This issue isn’t Genesis, per se, but rather modern day humans who believe, fervently, that it is a literally true account of ‘creation’, and beyond that, that such believers have a deeply flawed ability to think critically, and therefore any of their statements needs be examined with extra rigor and skepticism.

    And they often look like fools when their 6000-year-old earth Young-Earth-Creationism is discussed in the light of day.

    Moreover, the notion of the 6000 year old earth is not something inherent in the Bible, as you suggest, but rather the result of a seventeenth century Irish bishop, James Ussher, trying to use his particular Bible as a literal accounting of creation. His years of studying resulted in his declaration that creation began…

    he night preceding Sunday, 23 October 4004 BC, according to the proleptic Julian calendar.

    The link he included was this, and goes to the WSJ (should I be like puddles and call that ‘favorite of fascists’ or just let it be?) – linked to a hit-piece that attacked Obama for pointing out the Willard Rmoney’s ‘national finance co-chair’ was an absolute pig, whom the WSJ portrayed merely as a…

    “63-year-old has run that wellness-products company for 26 years out of tiny Idaho Falls, Idaho.”

    The truth about Frank VanerSloot can be found all over the place, despite his practice of threatening to sue anyone who mentions his name in the press.

    Glenn Greenwald has written about him. Maddow last night indicated that VanderSloot was invited on her show anytime, and that he had in fact contacted her at the last minute to come on by phone, which she declined, but offered him a spot live and in person anytime. Here’s an Idaho blog that covers him, bravely. Here’s Jody May-Chang’s homepage, who covers VanderSloot, and I believe is in the midst of being sued by him for talking about him.

    VanderSloot is a nasty character, running a predatory pyramid scheme, er, “multi-level marketing” business – think Amway – that is particularly prevalent in Mormon communities – high concentrations in Utah and Wyoming. They are exploitative, with an army of salespeople feeding money upward. And Mitt loves those business owners. Here’s a Mother Jones piece about the ‘industry’ and its ties to Mittens.

    The big point is, puddles was trying to inject Fox/WSJ faux-outrage into the discourse here, about appropriate coverage of some under-the-radar billionaire asshole in Idaho who loves him some mittens. This after every possible link to Obama was exhaustively dissected by the right and help up as deeply, deeply nefarious – remember Bill Ayer’s living room?

    Come on puddles, let’s discuss Frank VanderSloot. You started the discussion – let’s continue.

    John Derbyshire unleashes his inner racist. Of course we already knew that Republicans have issues with “raisins in the sun”. (h/t to Driftglass)

    I don’t mind the word “white” in either of those expressions. Conservatism, Inc. or otherwise, is a white people’s movement, a scattering of outliers notwithstanding.

    Always has been, always will be. I have attended at least a hundred conservative gatherings, conferences, cruises, and jamborees: let me tell you, there ain’t too many raisins in that bun. I was in and out of the National Review offices for twelve years, and the only black person I saw there, other than when Herman Cain came calling, was Alex, the guy who runs the mail room. (Hey, Alex!)

    This isn’t because conservatism is hostile to blacks and mestizos. Very much the contrary, especially in the case of Conservatism Inc. They fawn over the occasional nonwhite with a puppyish deference that fairly fogs the air with embarrassment. (Q: What do you call the one black guy at a gathering of 1,000 Republicans? A: “Mr. Chairman.”)

    It’s just that conservative ideals like self-sufficiency and minimal dependence on government have no appeal to underperforming minorities—groups who, in the statistical generality, are short of the attributes that make for group success in a modern commercial nation.

    Of what use would it be to them to embrace such ideals? They would end up even more decisively pooled at the bottom of society than they are currently
    A much better strategy for them is to ally with as many disaffected white and Asian subgroups as they can (homosexuals, feminists, dead-end labor unions), attain electoral majorities, and institute big redistributionist governments to give them make-work jobs and transfer wealth to them from successful groups.

    Of course, an “underperforming minority”, our very own “raisin in the sun”, will soon show up to prove himself to be at least a useful tool for his masters.

    Under Bush, we experienced the most tepid job growth in eight decades — a dismal 2 percent over his two terms. When Mitt Romney says that Obama “isn’t working,” he neglects to mention that the Romney economic policies — more tax cuts, more deregulation, more cuts to government, the typical policy positions of the GOP for the past 50 years — have been described as “Bush on steroids.” What part of that suggests that Romney’s solutions would fare any better?

    Republicans believe in doing the same thing expecting different results. They are insane. Anyone who votes for them has been duped or is insane as well.

    I see you’re flogging Klein’s book. You know, the guy who wrote a book ‘proving’ Hillary Clinton is a lesbian. The guy who got caught making shit up in both his Kennedy books. On preponderance of the evidence, rational people ignore him.

    Oh checkmake… Did you listen to the tapes he made with Jeremiah Wright today?

    They were priceless and Wright says a lot about Obummer and Whitaker!

    HA HA HA HA HA!

And why does George Soros hide his waelth overseas? Why does George Soros his behind closed events with police stopping the free press?

    Puuuuuuuuddddddyyyyyyyyy…..

    Just ’cause you brought it up, I just listened to the tapes posted on Hannity’s site. Can you point me to the one where he says anyone offers him money to stay quiet? Maybe listen to this one wow, that’s a barn burner. After Faux news tried to make Wright a focal point, Obama asked him to “please” stay out of the spotlight.

    As usual, your ‘kablamo’ is a fzzzzzzzzt.

    So why are all the tapes Hannity released edited? Hmmmm? Why not just put the whole conversation up? Hmmmm? Minute here, mostly without the questions, 25 seconds here. The only voice claiming bribery is Klein’s. Hmmmmmmmmmmm……

    Yawn. Think I’ll go watch smurf cartoons with the little one. It’s deeper than a Puddy comment.

    Well first you leftists said Klein was lying. Now the tapes appear and all are aghast.

    First tape… Was he aware that Eric Whitaker had offered you money! And Obummer asks Wright to not appear at the NAACP or the National Press Club and not do any more public speaking until after the November election as it will hurt the campaign if you do that.

    Glad you like watching little blue peeps. They are like you blue through and through cartoon characters.
