Please join us tonight for some politics over a pint at the Seattle Chapter of Drinking Liberally.
We meet tonight and every Tuesday evening at the Roanoke Park Place Tavern, 2409 10th Ave E, Seattle. The starting time is 8:00 pm, but some folks show up before that for dinner.
Can’t make it to Seattle? Perhaps you can visit another Washington State chapter of Drinking Liberally over the next week.
The Tri-Cities chapter also meets this Tuesday. The Lakewood chapter meets this Wednesday. On Thursday, the Tacoma chapter meets. The Enumclaw chapter meets on Friday. And next Monday, the Yakima, South Bellevue and Olympia chapters meet.
With 203 chapters of Living Liberally, including seventeen in Washington state, three in Oregon and three in Idaho, chances are excellent there’s a chapter meeting somewhere near you.
While Republicans are grapling with same sex marriage and Latte Salutes, Texas is treating someone with Ebola, and Colorodians are exhibiting a mysterious illness similiar to Polio who are becoming paralyzied.
After reading the headline, I thought that conservatives would have issue, but because it was muslim prayer I am sure they are loving it.
My first reaction was that he should have been penalized, just think if a gay player celebrated by pulling out a gay pride flag and waiving it around after scoring a touchdown. So I’m glad NFL isn’t allowing it, but I’m sure they aren’t allowing it for the wrong reason. They didn’t have a problem with Tim Tebow or players pointing to the sky in celebration.
Be careful with what you say at DL, my most excellent Neo-Socialist comrades: the NSA is lisening.
Apple says there stuff can’t be cracked, and the FBI is warning that terrorists can use Apple products to do real mischief and the government can’t eavesdrop. Wanna bet what the NSA’s top priorities are going to be for the near future? I’d say breaking Apple’s security is top-of-the -list. Of course, none of us will know about it.
Roger Rabbit spews:
@3 They can’t put us all in concentration camps. There’s too many of us.
Wow! The village idiot troll did another one of his classic scream and run from the facts fits, facts which conflict with his bullcrap memes, over in the Multimedia thread.
Let’s examine this scream fit in detail:
“About 17 percent of blacks who moved to the South in the past decade left New York State, far more than from any other state, the census data show.”
“The five counties with the largest black populations in 2000 — Cook in Illinois, Los Angeles, Wayne in Michigan, Kings in New York and Philadelphia — all lost black population in the last decade.”
See quote above!
“Houston’s southern suburbs are the top choice for African American home buyers. Houston does not have large “all-Black” suburbs that are typical of places like Atlanta or Washington DC. However, for those who want to enjoy the middle class and upper middle class lifestyle within the same culture, this is where it is most possible.
When Houstonians are asked where the top areas to live for African Americans are, these are usually the first mentioned. More than 125,000 or 15.5% of the Suburbs south of Houston are African American.
Black population growth has been in the triple digits in areas of Richmond, Pearland, Fresno, and Manvel during the last nine years.”
“The city of Atlanta actually had a net decline in blacks from 2000 to 2010, even though the metro area [suburbs] led all others in black population gain.”
FACT: AT LEAST FIFTY ONE PERCENT OF AFRICAN AMERICANS IN THE NATION AS A WHOLE LIVE IN THE SUBURBS.
The jerk troll has not refuted this FACT. He tries to distract from the TRUTH of this FACT by cherry picking Seattle. Or just freaking LYING about metro areas whose inner cores have seen obvious African American out-migration.
And this jerk troll has the nerve to call African Americans “sheeple”.
The “RESERVATION” that the troll blathers about (and worships his beloved WEST and CARSON over) exists only in the vacuum between the troll’s ears.
The vacuum is “reserved” for always wrong wing aka klownservative idiocy and propaganda!
Translation: People exist who just don’t comport with that pathetic oxymoron, glibertarian thought. JUST SHUT UP NON GLIBERTARIANS.
Read instead the latest BillO the clown “history” novel or the freshest in Peter Thiel’s “thought”.
You figured that out all by yourself?
