Obama "SOTU" at DL 2/24

Hi everyone,

Technically, tomorrow's speech is not a State of the Union address, but it serves roughly the same purpose. Join us for merriment and a President worth listening to at 6pm.

6pm-?

Cheers,

Tim Burgess at Drinking Liberally This Week

Good morning everyone,

Tonight, City Councilman Tim Burgess will be stopping by Drinking Liberally to talk about whatever's on his mind. Mr. Burgess is a former member of the Seattle Police Department who later founded his own PR firm serving primarily environmental non-profits. He keeps a blog where you can keep tabs on what he's doing on the city council, other non-council political business he attends to (such as the inauguration), and Huskies basketball.

2/17 Drinking Liberally@Town Hall

Hi all,

This year I've made it a resolution to push Seattle Drinking Liberally in some new directions. One of those will be to do more events in tandem with talks, film screenings, book signings, and the like. The first of these will be Tuesday, February 17th at Town Hall. We will try to find a bar or cafe near Town Hall; I will let you know what I find between now and then. Below are the details.

Cheers,
Nicholas Beaudrot

"Obama and the Bush Legacy"

Walter Williams, emeritus professor at the UW’s Center for American Politics and Public Policy, and Bryan D. Jones, professor at the University of Texas, Austin Department of Government, give a talk entitled "Barack Obama and the Challenge of the Bush Legacy." While economists generally hold that market forces (not a president’s policies and concept of governance) are the main influences on this country’s economy, Williams and Jones argue that, in fact, this economy crisis is the direct result of policies pursued by Bush (income tax cuts and deregulation) and a dysfunctional approach to governing. Williams and Jones are co-authors of the recent The Politics of Bad Ideas: The Great Tax Cut Delusion and the Decline of Good Government in America. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life, with University Book Store.
