Drinking Liberally Columbia Chapter Blog

Alternative facts There are so many of them. We have much to discuss

Today on Meet the Press
KELLYANNE CONWAY: Don't be so overly dramatic about it, Chuck. What-- You're saying it's a falsehood. And they're giving Sean Spicer, our press secretary, gave alternative facts to that. But the point remains--
CHUCK TODD: Wait a minute-- Alternative facts?
KELLYANNE CONWAY: --that there's--
CHUCK TODD: Alternative facts? Four of the five facts he uttered, the one thing he got right--
KELLYANNE CONWAY: --hey, Chuck, why-- Hey Chuck--
CHUCK TODD: --was Zeke Miller. Four of the five facts he uttered were just not true. Look, alternative facts are not facts. They're falsehoods.
KELLYANNE CONWAY: Chuck, do you think it's a fact or not that millions of people have lost their plans or health insurance and their doctors under President Obama? Do you think it's a fact that everything we heard from these women yesterday happened on the watch of President Obama? He was president for eight years. Donald Trump's been here for about eight hours

Backward into the future

It is astonishing how Cruel and Mean Spirited the GOP is as well as willfully ignorant, They want us to believe that returning to a antiquated economy based on dying energy technology is the answer to problems that we don't have.. Turning inward will leave us living in a world that won't care about what we do. We have in effect decided to become North Korea. It took us 8 years to recover from the GOPs last mess. Its a lot easier to destroy something than create something.

Will you make it tonight for Drinking Liberally...?

Our relaunch of this chapter is going pretty well. We've had a pretty good number of people visit the Facebook site. If half of the people that visited the site show up for a beer tonite it would put us well on our way to getting re-established.

It is important that you Bring Yourself to sit with us. We need to gain some momentum to make Tuesday nights something to look forward to. The more people that attend the more people will want to attend. I am working to get the group to critical mass.

There are NO speeches.. NO Enrollment ... NO pre-requisites ... NO Dress code .... NO Age Restrictions ... NO Loyalty oaths ... NO Fees ....
Nothing to stop you from attending.....

Come tonight and let's discuss the world... And I promise I won't make you listen to me play the harmonica
