A little history about Drinking Liberally..."it was born 5/29/2003 when a few friends gathered in the backyard of a dive bar on the westside of Manhattan..14 years and counting. At the time of the Bush administration, Drinking Liberally grew from a few friends in a bar to hundreds of chapters all around the country. Now, it feels like the darkest political moment of our lives...though the country is brightened by the flames of resistance sparking and sparkling everywhere. The founders are proud that Drinking Liberally keeps on chugging along with new threads of the resistance from Indivisible to Swing Left. Find chapters, start a chapter, chip in to help rebuild their website at www.drinkingliberally.org."

Dear Progressives,

The 3rd Friday of March happens to be St. Patrick's Day-let's wear green and celebrate contributions of Irish immigrants! 3/17/17 also happens to be the first time the BC Library Amphitheater will be used to show a movie "Moana" thanks to donation from Copper Mt. Solar starting at 7PM. As some of you might know, I have been a Library Trustee for 8 yrs. and a strong supporter of utilizing the amphitheater--therefore, I'm suggesting meeting up at Milo's around 6PM to toast St. Patty's Day and then for those interested head to the Library, others should stay at Milo's to continue the conversation-some may return after movie.

Indivisible Boulder City met for the first time on 2/27/17. The Indivisible Guide and purpose:

I urge all Nevadans to participate in legislative process by visiting legislative website www.leg.state.nv.us, contacting legislators, testifying via videoconferencing at Grant Sawyer State Building in LV, or taking a trip to Carson City to meet with legislators, attend hearings, etc.

Recent reports: Twitler needs to know a little black history--before speaking at a Black History Month Event. In Long History pf Presidential untruths, Twitler's in a class of his own. Twitter Endangers National Security-his cell phone is not secure, he discusses sate secrets at dinner in public. Know-Nothings Surrounded by Know-Nothings. Here is a link from Las Vegas Drinking Liberally: At least this is a funny take on time that was filled with ignorance.
