Hi Everyone! New Year, new location for Nashua DL! Tomorrow night (Tuesday, 1/3), at 7pm, we'll meet at Bertucci's located at 406 Amherst St. in Nashua. We'll give them a try. There's plenty of parking, the brick pizza oven makes it really toasty in there, and those rolls...

For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, said Newton. Maybe that's why, in the wake of Donald's election, there's been an enormous surge in women running for political office?
VoteRunLead (VRL), an organization that trains future female politicians, normally receives between 30 and 80 applicants for each of its regular webinars.
VP Elect Mike Pence is surely feeling this "opposite reaction" phenomena. Folks in his new neighborhood are welcoming him with signs and rainbow flags.
A Women's March on Washington has been planned for January 21st. Over 200,000 supporters of women's rights will "join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore." There will be "Sister Marches" in nearly every state, and in major countries all over the world. Do you plan to take part?
There is so much going on and so much to talk about. Let's do it together, Tuesday night (1/3), at Bertucci's! I'm not certain exactly where we'll be set up, but the place isn't too big - we shouldn't be hard to find. The host/hostess will know. Hope to see you there!

Hi Everybody! Just a friendly reminder that the Nashua chapter of Drinking Liberally meets tonight (Tuesday, 12/6/16) at 7pm at 110 Grill! Note: We won't be in the back room tonight. The restaurant is setting up two long tables in the dining room.

America failed our national IQ test. We can take comfort and pride in the fact that New Hampshire voted for the decent, experienced, qualified, sane candidate. Indeed, Trump voters nationwide are a minority. Hillary Clinton's lead in the popular vote has surpassed 2.5 million. Clearly Donald does NOT have a mandate. A petition to the Electoral College to honor the popular vote is approaching 5,000,000 signatures. Nevertheless, barring a miracle, Trump will be sworn in as POTUS on January 20th, 2017. He will be bolstered by majorities in both houses of Congress. What does this mean for Democrats and activists going forward? How do we most effectively resist the new regime? Come join your friends tonight and share your ideas, and have a few laughs! We'll goof on Hair Furor! The world didn't stop turning on Election Day!

Hi Everybody! Just a friendly reminder that Nashua Drinking Liberally meets tomorrow night (Tuesday, 11/1) at a NEW place - the 110 Grill! We also moved the time up a bit earlier - 7pm - but join us whenever you can make it!

FBI director James Comey dropped an October surprise on America. He sent a letter to Congress stating that new evidence had been found relating to the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server. Few details were provided, but an investigation into the activities of Anthony Weiner led to the discovery of emails on his laptop that had been sent between Mrs. Clinton and adviser Huma Abedin, Mr. Weiner's wife. Court permission to read the emails had not been obtained at the time the letter was sent, and there is nothing to suggest anything new or incriminating will be revealed. Comey has been blasted by both sides for his action. The Justice Department strongly discouraged it. Harry Reid claims it was an illegal act. So why did he do it? Will this have a substantive effect on the election?
Share your thoughts on this and all the other crazy developments in this election cycle. Just 7 more days. We can do this. Take a breather with us.
"What I admire most about Hillary is that she never buckles under pressure. She never takes the easy way out. And Hillary Clinton has never quit on anything in her life. And when I think about the kind of president that I want for my girls and all our children, that's what I want." -- Michelle Obama

Hi Everyone! Change is supposed to be good, so we're doing it! Please come hang out with your Nashua Drinking Liberally friends at a new location - the 110 Grill. It's located just down the street from Chen Yang Li, at 27 Trafalgar Square, off of Amherst. They have an interesting, modern menu. Also, while the day is the same (1st Tuesday of the month), we're bumping the time up a little - 7pm.
We're down to the wire in this totally whacked out election cycle. Come unwind!

Hi Everyone! Just a quick reminder that Nashua Drinking Liberally meets tonight (Tuseday) 10/4, at 7:30pm at Chen Yang Li! We're in the home stretch of what has been a wild, unpredictable, exasperating, exhausting election season. Less than 35 days out! Take a break from campaigning and raise a glass with your libby friends!
Since last time...so much crazy crap I can't remember half of it.
The New York Times was slipped tax records that show Donald could well have paid nothing at all in taxes for almost 2 decades. Rudi Giuliani says that it makes Trump a genius. Will undecided voters agree?
Speaking of Ghoul-iani, he seems to be in a competition with Trump to see who can say the most moronic, offensive shit, and Rudi is playing to win. According to Donald's loyal surrogate, Trump would be a better president than "a woman." In his defense, the comment won't likely lose him any support from the GOP base.
Trump himself seems to be unraveling since his humiliating loss in the first presidential debate. Nutty, late-night tweets and ever more absurd claims make our favorite tax dodger sound crazier than ever. Is it all downhill from here?
Sooooo much to talk about, and we'll do it tonight! Join us!

Hi Everybody! Hope you had a beautiful Labor Day weekend! Just a friendly reminder that Nashua Drinking Liberally meets tonight (Tuesday, 9/6) at 7:30pm at our usual place - the wonderful Chen Yang Li! Come hang out with your like-minded chums and talk about whatever has been on your mind!

Another Labor Day came and went. This year, there has been some pretty good news on the labor front. Not only is unemployment down from last year, but labor has won several significant victories. Woo Hoo!
We know Labor Day starts the home stretch of a presidential campaign - when the general population starts to really pay attention. Hillary Clinton heads into it holding on to her lead, ahead of Donald Trump by 3.9% points. Here in the Granite State, she holds a whopping 11% point lead. Will there be an "October surprise" to upset her frontrunner status?
Donald Trump, attempting to reach out to African Americans, appeared at a black church. Well, at least a church black people attend when Trump isn't there for a photo op. Addressing a largely empty room, the GOP nominee reminded the small gathering that Lincoln was a Republican. Can such ham-handed attempts at outreach by this demonstrably racist candidate push his support among non-whites above 0%?
So much to talk about, and we'll do it tonight! Join us!

The conventions are over! The bloody primary is past! It's general election time - 97 days and counting!
Hillary Clinton has a significant lead over Donald Trump. Maybe it's partially due to the GOP's
The only thing better will be the debates...which Trump is proactively whining are "rigged."
The Donald faces an uphill climb from here, but anything can (and has) happen in this bizzaro election season. What's next? Let's talk about it tonight! Join us!
"I didn't produce the show — I just showed up for the final speech on Thursday." -- Trump, on the poor RNC ratings.

Hillary Clinton made history by securing enough delegates to clinch the Democratic nomination for POTUS. Will she now be able to galvanize the party? Will the "Bernie or Bust" contingency be reasoned with? Bernie is planning to fight on. Should he?
Let's talk about it tonight!
"He says he doesn't have to listen to our generals or ambassadors because he has -- quote -- 'a very good brain.' He also said, 'I know more about ISIS than the generals do, believe me.' You know what? I don't believe him." -- Hillary Clinton, on Donald Trump's startling assertions.

President Obama attended his last White House Correspondent's Dinner, and was funnier than a president has a right to be. If you missed it, check it out. Host Larry Wilmore got lots of people talking after he dropped an N-bomb when congratulating the Commander In Chief. Was it too far?
Ted Cruz directly engaged a
Speaking of charm, Cruz upped that of his campaign exponentially when he brought the delightful Carly Fiorina on board as his running mate! Not only can Carly captivate an audience by telling bald faced lies about Planned Parenthood with utter conviction, but she can warm hearts by crooning like a saintly mother. If all else fails, she can go for the laughs with her artful pratfalls. Did Cruz improve his chance at the nomination by adding her to the ticket? Was she, as Sarah Palin was in 2008, simply a cynical, ham-handed effort to win the votes of women? Did the Cruz campaign calculate that they could more easily attack Hillary Clinton without charges of sexism if Carly led the charge?
So much craziness to discuss, and we'll do it tonight! Join us!
You might have heard that someone jumped the White House fence last week. But, I have to give Secret Service credit. They found Michelle, brought her back. She's safe, back at home now. It's only nine more months, babe. -- President Obama, at the 2016 White House Correspondent's Dinner.
