We need to get a head count on Sunday's First Annual Drinking Liberally Picnic at Bob's house, 13207 NE 38th Circle.

Please reply to this message with the number of folks we can expect will come, might come or won't come.


Craig Pridemore

In my last message I may have given the mistaken impression that Drinking Liberally Vancouver actually endorsed Mr. Pridemore. Nothing could be further from the truth. As I was reminded in a missive from Drinking Liberally galactic headquarters, we have a policy of never endorsing candidates for public office. We provided the campaign information merely as a public service.

So just to be clear we are not endorsing either the hard-working, intelligent and diligent Craig Pridemore or his despicable opponent.

I just wanted to clear that up.

Any questions? Please come to our monthly round table Tuesday at 7, Eagles Club, 107 E 7th St, downtown Vancouver.

And don't forget the picnic on Sunday.

Drinking Liberally this Tuesday

Join us at the Eagles, 107 E 7th St, downtown Vancouver for a lively discussion at 7 PM. What do you think about the bombing in Iraq, the situation in Ukraine, Ebola in W Africa, the lawsuit against Obama and local campaigns.

And don't forget to mark your calendars for the First Annual Drinking Liberally Picnic. You will arrive at Bob's house, 13207 NE 38th Circle with your favorite liquid refreshments and food to share at 3 in the afternoon.

A number of folks have asked how they can help in local campaigns. Well, Craig Pridemore, candidate for County Commissioner has some suggestions (why he would want to spend any time with David Madore is another question).

Drop by Craig's House 5419 NE Chateau Drive, Vancouver on August 10
Between 10:00 AM & 12:00 Noon
Pickup 20 neat yard signs on sticks and put them out in the medians all over town.
(No state routes, please. Bring a hammer, too)

II. Support Craig on his Walk Around Clark County

Craig will once again walk around Clark County (he did it when he won in 1998). In 1998 he went about 118 miles. Next week he plans for about 100 miles.

Support the Walk by –
Walking Along
Or just donating $1 per mile – that is real help, too!

Drinking Liberally This Tuesday, July 8

We have invited a couple of political candidates to join us so come and hear what they have to say. I'll give you a hint - they could use donations and volunteers.

Movie in Vancouver - Citzen Koch

Acclaimed documentary CITIZEN KOCH to be screened at the Kiggins Theatre in Vancouver starting July 10th.
By David Bybee

Currently scheduled to show only at the Kiggins in downtown Vancouver, this powerful new documentary about the infamous billionaire Koch brothers investigates their involvement in funding the Tea Party and traces their impact on unlimited election spending by corporations and their fellow billionaires. Wisely eschewing party lines (one of its heroes is GOP Buddy Roemer) CITIZEN KOCH is alternately terrifying and funny and is an essential and powerful portrait of our political times.

Drinking Liberally Tomorrow

Please consider joining us tomorrow evening at the Eagles Club, 107 SE 7th in downtown Vancouver. Have ideas about defeating Jamie H Beuttler? Tom Desmond from the Dingethal campaign will be joining us.

Do you have petitions to roll back Citizens United? Rodger Stevens will gladly take them off your hands and provide you with some fresh new ones. Remember, this is an important effort and depends entirely on volunteers like you.

Or do you just want to share your frustrations about the current madness that passes for civil discourse? Well Drinking Liberally is the place for you. See you there.

Drinking Liberally - let's Defeat JHB

Tom Desmond, a representative from Bob Dingethal for Congress will be joining us this Tuesday at the Eagles, 107 E 7th St, downtown Vancouver at 7 PM. And possibly the candidate himself will make an appearance.

This is your chance to ask questions about Mr. Dingethal, the campaign and the goal we all can get behind - retiring the awful Ms. Beuttler.

So raise a glass and join the conversation. Be there.
