Nashua Drinking Liberally meets this Tuesday, 2/7

Hi Everybody!

Just a reminder that the next Nashua Drinking Liberally meets this Tuesday, 2/7, 7:30pm.

What a bash the SOTU Address party was! Thanks to everyone who joined us to pack the place! It was great to see so many new faces!

Since last time:

Mitt Romney (Rawmoney) pulled another horrible gaffe by saying he’s “not concerned about the very poor”. Should he be vilified for a cruel point of view, or commended for telling the truth? Willard defended his position for several days…and then said he “misspoke”. Why don’t people trust this guy?

The circus that is the GOP primary continues, albeit with fewer clowns. The front runners, Romney & Gingrich, continue to cut each other up by telling the truth about each other. Romney has long been predicted the likely nominee, and considering how much cash the 1% have been shoveling at him, there’s no reason to believe otherwise.

The Susan G Komen Foundation cut funding to Planned Parenthood, citing a congressional investigation into claims of PP’s use of tax dollars to fund abortion. A ferocious backlash led to a reversal of the decision, and left Komen scrambling with a PR debacle. After nearly 40 years since Roe v. Wade, will the right wing ever abandon their war on women’s reproductive rights?

As usual, so much to talk about, and we’ll do it Tuesday, 2/7, 7:30pm at Thousand Crane, 116 West Pearl St, Nashua! Please join us! As always, non-drinkers are warmly welcomed!

Liberalism is, I think, resurgent. One reason is that more and more people are so painfully aware of the alternative.
