Since Last Time...

The GOP failed and failed and failed to repeal and/or replace Obamacare. Now Donald seems to be suggesting he will spitefully sabotage the health insurance that millions of Americans depend on. Will he get away with it?

White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus got the boot, being replaced by John Kelly, who then tossed White House Communications Director Anthony "The Mooch" Scaramucci, after just 10 days on the job. Will the dizzying musical chairs in this new administration make Donald suck any less?

So much to talk about and we'll do it tonight! Join in!

Since last time...

Donald Trump Jr. isn't just an ordinary elephant killer, he's also an "idiot of towering proportions,"and, apparently, a traitor. The greasy-haired elder son of Minority President Trump has admitted to the New York Times that he met with a Russian lawyer connected to the Kremlin in order to obtain information on Hillary Clinton that would be damaging to her presidential campaign. He can now be added to the truly startling list of Trump associates who have had contact with the Russians, and who have lied about it. How many more wheels does the damn Trump bus have?

The elder Trump made a tremendous impression at the G20 forum. He wanted everyone to know it, posting a slideshow of himself shaking hands with world leaders and smiling, while a soaring chorus sings "Make America Great Again!" An Australian journalist had a decidedly different take on Donald's performance, which has gone viral. At one point during the summit Ivanka raised some hackles when she sat in for her dad. Maybe he stepped out to tweet about how at this summit of world leaders, who gathered from all over the Earth to discuss issues like trade and nuclear proliferation, "Everyone here is talking about why John Podesta refused to give the DNC server to the FBI and the CIA." And then there was the anticipated meeting with Vladimir. The Russian president got the upper hand in his meeting with Trump. Putin denied any Russian interference in our election, and Donald made very clear to him that such a flaccid defense was entirely acceptable. Then they discussed how Russia can help us with cybersecurity to secure our future elections! What could go wrong?

We can talk about all (or none) of these things tonight! Just come out and join your libby friends for some conversation, laughs, drinks and food!

Some good people got impatient with the slow pace of the investigation into Trump's Russian ties. A new march has been announced. The March For Truth will take place Saturday, June 3rd. DEMONSTRATIONS TO CALL FOR AN IMPARTIAL INVESTIGATION INTO RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE IN THE US ELECTION AND TIES TO DONALD TRUMP, HIS ADMINISTRATION AND HIS ASSOCIATES. Will it help? Will you go? As far as Donald is concerned, may it have the potential to be the MOST upsetting march yet?

Because they're all about what's best for the country, the GOP voted to let Donald continue to hide his taxes from the light. Should there be new laws created to make providing tax returns mandatory for presidential candidates?

Much as he didn't realize health care is complicated, Donald didn't realize the job of POTUS is hard. "I loved my previous life. I had so many things going," Trump told Reuters in an interview. "This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier." On a scale of 1-10, how bad for him do you feel?

Always so much to talk about, and we'll do it tonight! Come join us!

After 7 long years and 54 votes to repeal Obamacare, Republicans finally got their chance to show us what they're made of. And they did. Will they try again?

Americans apparently got "tired of all the winning." Donald's approval rating has hit 34%. He's politically isolated.What are the chances he'll be able to get anything done?

On Sunday, The LA Times excoriated Donald in a must-read editorial,the first of a series. Was it too harsh? Too easy?

Since last time...

The Women's March. The airport protests in the wake of Donald's Muslim ban. The raucous town hall meetings. The right wing seems to be getting tired of all the resistance. At least 17 states have proposed anti-protest bills. These bills propose jail time and heavy fines for demonstrators - cuz the GOP is all about freedom! Could this stifle dissent?

If Donald took drugs to stay in control for his poorly rated address to Congress, they've worn off. It was back to batshit for Hair Furor this weekend, as he recklessly accused Barak Obama, without evidence, of bugging Mt. Doom Trump Tower. If it turns out this claim isn't another one of his delusions, he's likely in serious trouble. Is this the beginning of the end for Dolt 45?

Jeff Sessions lied to Congress during his confirmation hearing. He's recused himself from any investigation into Trump's Russian ties, but Democrats aren't satisfied with that. Could he face perjury charges?

So much to talk about, and we'll do it tonight! Join us!

Nashua Drinking Liberally Meets Tonight (Tuesday, 2/7/17)

Hi Everyone! Just a friendly reminder that Nashua Drinking Liberally meets tonight at Bertucci's!located at 406 Amherst St. Don't let lousy weather wreck our fun (but don't be dumb and drive if conditions are too treacherous).

Since last time... Omg.

Mad King Donald signed a number of executive orders. Perhaps the most outrageous was the #MuslimBan. The executive order banned entry to the US from seven countries with Muslim majority populations. Airports across the country erupted with spontaneous protestsbefore a federal judge halted the order. Minority President Trump responded in his familiar, "klassy" way, Tweeting that the order was "outrageous," and came from a "so called judge." Donald appealed the ruling, to no avail. We surely haven't heard the last of this. How do you think it'll turn out?

The Women's March on January 21st was a spectacular show of strength from women and their supporters around the world. In the US, it was the largest single-day protest in history. Did you go to any marches or demonstrations?

Americans seem to know we don't have to give in to hate. In response to Tweetler's Muslim ban, a college has offered a scholarship for refugees. After a mosque was burned to the ground in Texas, Jews handed Muslims the keys to their synagogue. When anti-Semitic graffitti appeared on a NYC subway, riders joined together to remove it.

Nashua Drinking Liberally NEW LOCATION tomorrow night (Tuesday, 1/3)!

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.

"In a 48-hour period after the election, we had 1,100 women sign up for our next webinar and we had to close it and start a wait list," said Erin Vilardi, executive director of VoteRunLead.

-The Guardian

VP Elect Mike Pence is surely feeling this "opposite reaction" phenomena. Folks in his new neighborhood are welcoming him with signs and rainbow flags. https---blueprint-api-production.s3.amazonaws.com-uploads-card-image-329704-20019c24-1478-4273-9677-cd896a458c96

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!

Nashua Drinking Liberally meets tonight (Tuesday, 12/6/2016)!

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.

Since last time...

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!

Nashua Drinking Liberally meets tomorrow night (Tuesday, 11/1) at a *NEW LOCATION* and *TIME*!

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!

Since last time...

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
