Drinking Liberally Nashua Chapter Blog

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.

LAWN POSTERS TRUMP

"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

Nashua Drinking Liberally Meets Tonight (Tuesday, 10/4)

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!

Nashua Drinking Liberally Meets Tonight (Tuesday, 9/6)!

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!

Since last time...

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!

Nashua Drinking Liberally Meets Tonight (Tuesday, 8/2)

Hi Everybody! Just a friendly reminder that Nashua Drinking Liberally meets tonight (Tuesday, 8/2) at 7:30pm at our usual place - the wonderful Chen Yang Li! Grab a cocktail and some vittles with all your libby friends!

Since last time...

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 sloppy, interminable funeral dirge convention? On the RNC, Gallup found for the first time ever, that a convention has made viewers LESS likely to vote for the party candidate! The DNC, by contrast, was uplifting and hopeful, with knockout speeches by many, including the First Lady, President Obama, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Reverend William Barber. Even conservatives admit that the DNC was far better than their own, saying it amounted to a "disaster" for the GOP.

The only thing better will be the debates...which Trump is proactively whining are "rigged."

The war of words between Don the Con and the parents of fallen Army Capt. Humayun Khan continues, and many prominent Republicans and crucial constituencies disapprove.

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.

Hi Everybody! Just a friendly reminder that Nashua Drinking Liberally meets tonight (Tuesday, 6/7) at 7:30pm at our usual place - the wonderful Chen Yang Li! Come blow off steam with all your libby friends!

Since last time...

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.

Nashua Drinking Liberally Meets Tonight! (Tuesday, 5/3)

Hi Gang! It's the first Tuesday of the month again, which means Nashua Drinking Liberally meets tonight (Tuesday, 5/3) at 7:30pm at our usual place - the wonderful Chen Yang Li!!!!

Since last time...

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 horde of brainless, drooling lunatics group of Trump supporters. The loyal Trumpeters failed to be persuaded by the senator's trademark smarm charm.

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.

Nashua Drinking Liberally Meets Tonight! (4/5/16)

Just a reminder - it's the first Tuesday of the month, which means Nashua Drinking Liberally meets tonight (Tuesday, 4/5) at 7:30pm at our usual place - the wonderful Chen Yang Li!!!!

Since last time...

Klassy TV star Donald Trump really stepped in it when he said recently that women should be punished for having abortions. People on both sides of the abortion issue were aghast. Is this the beginning of the end for this most unconventional candidate? If so, who will ultimately get the nomination? Will there be a brokered convention?

The Democratic Primary has gotten heated, with accusations of dishonesty flying back and forth between the Sanders and Clinton campaigns. Can this rift be healed so that we're all ready to pummel the GOP together in November?

Lets talk about it all as the results of the Wisconsin primary roll in (I know I can count on the fact that my friends' passionate support of Sanders or Clinton won't lead to bloodshed). Join us!

As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action: you liberate a city by destroying it. Words are to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests. -- Gore Vidal
