Drinking Liberally — Seattle

DLBottle The Seattle Chapter of Drinking Liberally is still on tour investigating the fine pubs of Seattle. Eventually, we will settle on a new place to call home. If you can, please join us on our tour.

This evening we will visit The Roanoke Park Place Tavern, 2409 10th Ave E, Seattle. We meet at 8:00 pm, but some folks show up even earlier than than for dinner.

Can’t make it? Check out another nearby DL meeting over the next week. The Tri-Cities and Shelton chapters also meet this Tuesday. The Lakewood and South Seattle chapters meet this Wednesday. For Thursday, the Spokane and Tacoma chapters meet.

With 215 chapters of Living Liberally, including nineteen in Washington state, four in Oregon, and three more in Idaho, chances are excellent there’s a chapter meeting somewhere near you.

    What Genocide In America Looks Like

    NBC News reports an epidemic of severe birth defects in Yakima with dozens of cases of anencephaly and spina bifida. Agricultural pesticides are a prime suspect.


    Yakima is GOP country, so here’s how they’ll deal with the problem:

    1. Don’t make farmers stop using dangerous pesticides.
    2. Don’t let the news media blame the problem on agricultural pesticides.
    3. Don’t provide funding to public agencies responsible for investigating the problem.
    4. Make sure the problem isn’t investigated.
    5. Don’t test wells or other water sources.
    6. Identify a suitable scapegoat by conducting a superficial investigation.
    7. Blame the victims, i.e. accuse mothers of deformed children of being “bad mothers.”
    8. Don’t allow these mothers to abort their deformed children.
    9. Don’t provide any welfare, medical care, or other support to these mothers or their deformed children.
    10. Instead, tell mothers of deformed children to attend church more.

    That should cover it. Did I miss anything?

    Where in the world is GOATBOY (AKA SATAN’S WHORE)?

    Posting in West Virginia, telling the lucky residents that their water is good to drink? Posting in North Carolina, telling the lucky residents that their water is good to drink? Posting in New Jersey, telling the lucky residents of Fort Lee that the bridge SNAFU was really their Mayor’s fault?

    Or is GOATBOY sucking on SATAN’S COCK?

    MADISON – Last week, figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed Wisconsin led the nation in new unemployment claims for the week ending in February 1st with a change of 5,041 new claims – ahead of New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.


    Damn folks! This is just the kind of “facts” on how well klownservative policies work that our resident idiot trolls have been looking for!

    @1 On a certain level it’s creepy. On another, it’s evidence that perhaps those folks don’t take themselves all that seriously after all. I’m also inclined to wonder, if male “neophytes” have to dress in drag, what are newly-initiated women supposed to be wearing?

    John Boner Charges Tea Party with Misleading Followers

    “I think they’re misleading their followers,” Boner said. “They’re pushing our members in places where they don’t want to be and, frankly, I just think that they’ve lost all credibility.”

    But Boner’s conservative critics are furious. PSYCHO BITCH Jenny Beth Martin, president and co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, started a nationwide petition this week demanding that Boner be fired as speaker.

    “Speaker Boner is unable to lead the House of Representatives,” Martin said. “He’s certainly unable to lead his own caucus.”

    Now those words I can agree with.

    As Bank Deaths Continue to Shock, Documents Reveal JPMorgan Has Been Patenting Death Derivatives

    The probability of two vibrant young men in their 30s who are employed by the same global bank but separated by an ocean dying within six days of each other is remote. And few companies are in as good a position to understand just how remote as is JPMorgan: since 2010, it has received four patents on quantifying longevity risks and structuring wagers via death derivatives.

    Was it accidental? Or did they know too much?

    Rob Peter to pay Paul

    Pressed to come up with hundreds of millions of dollars to settle clergy sex abuse lawsuits, Cardinal Roger M. Mahony turned to one group of Catholics whose faith could not be shaken: the dead.

    Under his leadership in 2007, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles quietly appropriated $115 million from a cemetery maintenance fund and used it to help pay a landmark settlement with molestation victims.

    I’m sure GOATBOY approves…

    @12 Conveniently, with the concerns about California’s current drought, the Archdiocese will have an excuse to give those with loved ones interred in its cemeteries for letting the grass and shrubs die and closing the restrooms.

    A former U.S. Army soldier convicted of an atrocity in Iraq has committed suicide. Steven D. Green was serving life without parole for raping a 14-year-old Iraqi girl, and murdering her, her
    6-year-old sister, and her parents. When things like this happen in a war zone — and they always do — there will always be rightwing scumbags on the homefront defending Americans who commit atrocities and threatening the lives of whistleblowers who “squeal” on their buddies. That was the case here, too. At last report, the soldier who turned in Green and his fellow rapists/killers had left the Army, and was living in an undisclosed location because of death threats he says he has received.

    What is really sad is that the church could have moved a long time ago to help the molested and persecute the molesters (instead of the other way around) and would most likely have avoided the massive punitive law suits, especially if they had included the molested and their families in the clean up process.
