Hi all. We’re meeting this Monday for the usual beverage and banter. Also, we wanted to inform you that liberal musical satirist Roy Zimmerman is coming to town at 7:00 PM on Friday, June 14th, at the Olympia Unitarian Universalist Congregation. I’m a big fan of Roy, and saw him perform a mini-concert a few months ago. Here are a few of my favorite songs of his:

“To Be A Liberal” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3qgiNPVpSM

“To the Victims of This Tragedy We Send Our Thoughts and Prayers” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8ouBFh04DU

“The Unions Are To Blame” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imouDc5u3as

Here’s the schedule for Roy’s tour (he will also be performing in Tacoma on June 15th) http://www.royzimmerman.com/schedule.html

Your welcome.

Hi all. Monday is “Tax Day”. To see why this is a good thing, check out the article, “Taxes Are Good,” at http://www.governmentisgood.com/articles.php?aid=17&print=1. So, let’s get together on Monday and see whether we’re radically progressive enough to raise our libation of choice in a toast to taxes!

Hi all.

The Supreme Court has been hearing arguments in favor and against DOMA and California’s Prop 8, leading to plenty of material for online commentary and comedy. And in Washington, what counts as significant progress on the climate change issue is passing legislation that creates a committee to hire a consultant to make a list of potential actions the state could take in the future. Heck, we can meet on Monday, jot down a few ideas, and even enjoy beer while we’re doing it!

So bring a liberal friend, and forward this to other liberal drinkers you know.

Hi all,

Two Big Things since our last meet-up: the State Supreme Court has reinstated majority rule in Washington, and the federal “sequester” budget cuts have begun. Please join us Monday at Drinking Liberally to toast the one and discuss the other.
