Drinking Liberally — Seattle

DLBottle

It is a special pre-Thanksgiving edition of Drinking Liberally for the Seattle chapter tonight. Festivities take place at the Montlake Ale House, 2307 24th Avenue E. beginning about 8:00 pm. A few of us will show up earlier than that for dinner.

As you might imagine…we’ll be talking us some turkey….



Not in Seattle? There is a good chance you live near one of the 341 other chapters of Drinking Liberally.

    “Look over here at Palin. Look at this video clip of someone who is old news. Don’t think about the job the politicians we at HA told you to vote for are doing. Don’t think about the economy of our state. Don’t think about the job Obama is doing. Let us distract you sheep with videos of people who aren’t even in political office.”

    hey darryl, why do you say “thanksgiving”? i thought we dont use the names of holidays, just say “holiday dinner”. you know, instead of christmas we say “happy holiday”. even my 9 year old only needed about a year of public school indoctrination to know you dont say christmas.

    Aw, Sarah, my only regret is that you are constitutionally unable to recognize your own overwhelming unpopularity and incapacity. Even so, your crash and burn will be fun.

    What we say instead of “Christmas” is “Christ got a blowjob from Mary Magdalene.” It is not only more probable but has at least as much (if not more) historical relevance as the co-opted pagan/Roman solstice festival now often called Christmas.

    I don’t know, did any stupid Republican ever research Saturnalia or the various pre-X-ian solstice celebrations from which the Church lifted all of their rituals? Or look into which month was much MORE likely the birth month of magic Jesus?

    What the fuck are you babbling about? I refer to the holidays as by their names (Thanksgiving and Christmas). What the fuck are you smoking, there, Squirt?

    Darryl,

    I hate to say it but just watching the original piece uncut was more amusing than this mash up.

    The worker doesn’t just prepare the turkeys – he’s killing them behind her as she rambles on and on, unconcerned, oblivious to the way it will look on TV.

    Very amusing, especially as she has just “pardoned” a turkey…

    Maybe you can answer this for me…
     
    What’s so bad? That is the reality of life. Turkeys do get killed for human consumption. I see where the peta people might be offended, but if you eat turkey on thursday why are you bothered? Are you that far removed from your food source you don’t understand? Would you be bothered watching a fish get cleaned?

    Marv Troll:

    I’m not saying there is something wrong with the killing some turkeys. In fact, that turkey farm actually looks quite a bit more humane than the massive factory “farms” that most people’s turkeys will be coming from this year.

    The point I’m making, and what I find hilarious, is here is this person who has jumped to the national stage and is giving an official press conference in the middle of a presidential race, choosing as the presser background a place where a man repeatedly kills animals while she talks about her campaign. It really is like some strange comedy skit. That’s why the mash up vid is so unecessary.

    Have you seen the original presser in its entirety? Watch the guy killing the turkeys repeatedly turn around with this look on his face like “they really want to do that here, now?”

    I’m sorry for you that you have hitched your wagon to someone who is so oblivious …

    Happy Holidays! Watch out for small pox blankets!

    Christianity is a fable and not a particularly good one.

    So Mr. Progressive Atheist, if your premise is true, Why do you care about anything???
    Don’t give us the “future generation” BS.
    You obviously believe we are all SOULLESS and the result of a series of random acts with no Creator. Good luck with that.

    For all my Christian brothers and sisters (Left and Right), here is what Thanksgiving is really all about PSALM 100:

    A psalm. For giving thanks.

    1 Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.

    2 Worship the LORD with gladness;
    come before him with joyful songs.

    3 Know that the LORD is God.
    It is he who made us, and we are his;
    we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

    4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
    and his courts with praise;
    give thanks to him and praise his name.

    5 For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.

    God’s love is better than life.
    Folks like Daddy Love that not only don’t believe but attack those who do are filled with ingratitude for the blessings God has bestowed upon us.
    Know the Lord is God and
    Know the Lord is Good.

    You obviously believe we are all SOULLESS and the result of a series of random acts with no Creator.

    Setting aside for a moment your wretched, dismal record regarding the accuracy of your assumptions, all that is “obvious” is that I think that Christianity is a fable and not a particularly good one. The rest is just your internal dialogue. Don’t listen to the voices!

    And if you had the curiosity of a gnat you might have already noticed (but you don’t so you haven’t) that Christianity itself is just a patchwork quilt of earlier and contemporaneous Middle Eastern mystery religions with an overlay of Puritan priggishness.

    But inferring what I believe from a sample of ONE from what I don’t believe? Yeah, your’e an idiot, all right.

    The ratings boost confirm Palin’s popularity

    Every time I drive on the freeway, cars slow down, blocking traffic for miles, to watch what happens after a serious injury-accident. I don’t believe that this makes injury-accidents popular.

    But that’s just me, pulling notions of unpopularity out of my ass.

    I’ll tell you one thing, what I DIDN’T take into account when stating that she’s unpopular is the CBS News Poll from Nov. 13-15, 2009 that shows her favorable/unfavorable percentages at 23/38 for a net -15. In that same poll I studiously avoided the “would/would not like to see her run for president” percentages (24/66, net -42) or the “do/do not you think Sarah Palin would have the ability to be an effective president” percentages (26/62, net -36).

    Another thing or two you can bet your ass I DIDN’T pay attention to were the ABC News/Washington Post Poll of Nov. 12-15, 2009 (43/52, net -9) or the CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll of Oct. 16-18, 2009 (42/51, net -9).

    (All numbers pollingreport.com/p.htm, Fox News poll excluded for obvious reasons—but they naturally give her a +5 outlier)

    And she’s got a #1 book.

    Really? Because I looked at the most respected arbiter of such notions, the NY Times bestseller list (http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11.....;ref=books) and her book isn’t even in the top 35. Huckabee’s and Beck’s are, but are the only two on the list with the “bulk order” indicator, from rich right-wingers (*cough* Scaife *cough*) buying their way onto the list.

    It’s funny what you consider popular.

    How many books does the ny times sell?
     
    How many does amazon sell?
     
    The statistics of someone actually selling books is more important than an opinion of newspaper with a well known bias.

    Perhaps our trolls could do a better job of articulating the reasons why they’d support Palin than the folks in that recent video. That she pisses off libs is a given. And, of course, we all know that she represents freedom and all that’s right and great about America. But can you give us a little more than that?

    All religions are just paths to the same place. One is no better than the other, and we will always have some sort of religion in the world, no matter who we are.
