Drinking Liberally — Seattle

DLBottleDon’t be a fool…join us tonight for an evening of political punditry over a pint at the Seattle Chapter of Drinking Liberally.

We meet every Tuesday at the Roanoke Park Place Tavern, 2409 10th Ave E, Seattle. The starting time is 8:00 pm, but some folks may show up even earlier for dinner.






Can’t make it to Seattle? Check out another Washington state DL over the next week. They’re everywhere! The Tri-Cities chapter also meets this and every Tuesday night. The Lakewood chapter meets this Wednesday. For Thursday, the Spokane and Tacoma chapters meet. On Friday, the Enumclaw chapter meets. And next Monday, the Yakima, South Bellevue and Olympia 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.

    Meanwhile in real news

    Just 32 percent of military veterans who served in Iraq or Afghanistan approve of the job Barack Obama is doing as president, according to a new poll from the Washington Post and the Kaiser Family Foundation. In a related question, only 42 percent of those surveyed said they believe Obama is a “good commander-in-chief of the military.” Forty eight percent said he is not.

    Veterans were asked a similar question about former President George W. Bush. Sixty-five percent said they felt he was a good commander-in-chief, while 28 percent responded he was not.

    Well Well well…

    An interesting case and an even more interesting judge

    A Superior Court judge who sentenced a wealthy du Pont heir to probation for raping his 3-year-old daughter noted in her order that he “will not fare well” in prison and needed treatment instead of time behind bars, court records show.

    Well Roger Idiot Wabbit, local counsel for HA DUMMOCRETINS, how do you explain this DUMMOCRETIN judge’s actions?

    Well isn’t Joe BiteMe’s son Beau Biden the Delaware Attorney General? And it seems’ his father’s law firm loves the DUMMOCRETIN way more than the Republican. Even Al Franken[stein] received political contributions from this firm.

    Wow, you can’t make this crap up! Even the DUMMOCRETINS at DUMMOCRETIN Underground are upset over this one. Must be it gives DUMMOCRETINS a bad name when a DUMMOCRETIN judge gives a DUMMOCRETIN p e d o man a pass! Finally something that makes those idiots at DUMMOCRETIN Underground get upset at other DUMMOCRETINS!

    Who knew?

    When you are a rich DUMMOCRETIN from two prominent Delaware (DUMMOCRETIN state) families, being tried in a courtroom led by a prominent Delaware DUMMOCRETIN judge, what can you expect except leniency! Children don’t matter when DUMMOCRETIN justice is delivered.

    DUMMOCRETIN money talks, all other things don’t matter. And y’all wonder why Puddy takes y’alls positions to task. HA DUMMOCRETINS talk a good game just like national DUMMOCRETINS! Yet when the rubber hits the road; DUMMOCRETINS are the nastiest, cynical, hypocritical money loving bunch of loons Puddy has ever seen.

    There are two sets of American justice. One for the common man and one for rich DUMMOCRETINS. Don’t you remember Puddy delivering Jeffrey Epstein to HA DUMMOCRETINS? Go ahead and ask the crazed clueless databaze deala for a thorough link review.

    Now this is interesting

    This paper uses recent data to analyze the impact of raising the minimum wage on employment among the 50 states. As shown in the following charts, the analysis finds that in 2013, a $1 increase in the minimum wage was associated with a 1.48 percentage point increase in the unemployment rate, a 0.18 percentage point decrease in the net job growth rate, a 4.67 percentage point increase in the teenage unemployment rate, and a 4.01 percentage point decrease in the teenage net job growth rate. Consequently, high state minimum wages increased unemployment by 747,700 workers and reduced job growth by 83,300 jobs.

    It seems when you increase the minimum wage low-skilled (many HA DUMMOCRETINS) and teenagers are affected.

    Heh. Hobby Lobby, the hypocrites that keep on giving:

    Hobby Lobby’s 401(k) employee retirement plan holds $73 million in mutual funds that invest in multiple pharmaceutical companies that produce emergency contraceptive pills, intrauterine devices, and abortion-inducing medications.

    The companies Hobby Lobby invests in include Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, which makes the Plan B morning-after pill and ParaGard, a copper IUD, as well as Pfizer, the maker of the abortion-inducing drugs Cytotec and Prostin E2. Hobby Lobby’s mutual funds also invest in two health insurance companies that cover surgical abortions, abortion drugs, and emergency contraception in their health care policies.

    A truly free man!

    Creationist Danny Faulkner of the Christian group Answers in Genesis said during a March 20 appearance on “The Janet Mefferd Show” that Tyson seemed to shy away from any mention of creationism in his Fox series. “Consideration of special creation is definitely not open for discussion, it would seem,” Faulkner said.

    But Tyson proved Faulkner wrong in last Sunday’s installment of “Cosmos” when he addressed — and soundly attacked — one of creationism’s core tenets: That the universe, based on biblical sources, is only about 6,500 years old. Just check out the “Cosmos” video above.

    In the episode, entitled “A Sky Full of Ghosts,” Tyson uses the example of the Crab Nebula, which is about 6,500 light years away from Earth, to debunk this creationist belief. As he explains, we can see the light of celestial beings much, much further away than the Crab Nebula, which proves that our universe is much older than a few thousand years.

    Remember what TexASS did:

    The Texas Advance Directives Act (1999), also known as the Texas Futile Care Law, describes certain provisions that are now Chapter 166 of the Texas Health & Safety Code. Controversy over these provisions mainly centers on Section 166.046, Subsection (e),1 which allows a health care facility to discontinue life-sustaining treatment ten days after giving written notice if the continuation of life-sustaining treatment is considered futile care by the treating medical team.

    Why doesn’t the always wrong wing ever talk about this? (Don’t look at me, I’ve mentioned this here many times.)

    Oh it must be this:

    The bill was signed into law while George W. Bush was Governor of Texas.

    That’s not what the Bible sez

    Not according to these guys:

    God gave us something better. In essence, He gave us a “birth certificate.” For example, using a personal birth certificate, a person can calculate how old he is at any point. It is similar with the earth. Genesis 1 says that the earth was created on the first day of creation (Genesis 1:1–5). From there, we can begin to calculate the age of the earth…

    The misconception exists that Ussher and Jones were the only ones to arrive at a date of 4000 B.C.; however, this is not the case at all. Jones6 lists several chronologists who have undertaken the task of calculating the age of the earth based on the Bible, and their calculations range from 5501 to 3836 B.C. A few are listed in table 2.

    @5 That’s great, Poodebutt. Thanks to you, we know what American Action Forum, a rightwing propaganda shop, thinks of raising the minimum wage. Here’s what real media reported today:

    “Most of the states that raised their minimum wages [on Jan. 1] actually posted gains in their employment levels … compared with ‘essentially zero’ for those that kept their wages unchanged.”

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @2, @8 – I posted about that case yesterday, Poodebutt. It’s comment #9 on the 3/31 Open Thread.

    The article you linked to contains only two facts about the judge — (fact #1) she applied to be state Chief Justice, and (fact #2) she’s an “open lesbian.” Which of these facts do you find “even more interesting,” Poodebutt? Should I venture to guess? Nah, I’ll let you tell me.

    As for what the judge’s partisan orientation is, I don’t know what it is or if she even has one, and what’s more I don’t care. It was a crappy decision. She’s a crappy judge. Let the chips fall wherever they will. If it turns out she’s a Democrat, my response to that will be that I don’t defend crappy Democrats.

    The thing is, you can’t find a Republican office holder anywhere who isn’t head-up-ass crappy. At least when you vote for a Democrat, you have a 50-50 chance of getting someone who’s competent and decent. If you vote for a Republican, you have zero chance.

You could have too Idiot Wabbit, butt as we know from previous commentary, don’t besmirch a DUMMOCRETIN on HA DUMMOCRETINS unless called out on it. And like most DUMMOCRETINS, try to say as little as possible on the subject!

    Oh yeah the judge is a BIG TIME DUMMOCRETIN… That’s why Puddy went to a Delaware DUMMOCRETIN site. She’s held in high esteem by Delaware DUMMOCRETINS!
