Drinking Liberally S. Bellevue TOMORROW, June 1st

Hi all:

Missed you all last month because I completely spaced it out. Hope to see you tomorrow at the Mustard Seed in Newport Hills. There is so much to discuss locally, statewide, and nationally.

Will Washington State's government shut down? Would anyone notice? Will the Patriot Act be renewed? Will TPP get fast-tracked? Who else is about to join the Republican presidential wannabe clown caravan? Does it matter? Barring an unexpected death or debilitating illness, the next president is going to be a Clinton or a Bush. Who wants to drink to that? Who wants to drink because of that?

I'm terribly sad today for the Biden family and the country. Beau Biden was a decorated combat veteran and rising star that most likely would have been the next governor of Delaware, and who knows what after that. Rest in peace, Beau.

See you tomorrow.

I try to get to several Adam Smith events a year. He always knocks back my cynicism and re-energizes me. Please consider attending this fun and tasty event. Contributions are not required, but they aren't discouraged either.

Northwest Progressive Institute Annual Gala

NPI is a voice and driving force for progressive public policy. Their funding depends on small but regular contributions from people like you and me. This is always an inspiring event with great food and conversation, and an impressive line-up of speakers. Would love to see some of you there.

That is all.

Warm regards,

Drinking Liberally S. Bellevue Tomorrow!

Well, that was fast. February is gone. Poof. Join us tomorrow at the Mustard Seed in Newport Hills, 7:00 PM.

Congress saw fit to fund Homeland Security for one whole week, without releasing the hostage, of course.

For some reason the Republican led House reminds me of Rush Limbaugh's comments about Sandra Fluke: "What does it say about the college co-ed Sandra Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex, what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute."

What does it say about a group of extremists who take the security of the American people hostage and demand as ransom public policy changes that they have been unable to achieve through the courts or normal legislative process? What does that make them? It makes them terrorists, right? Or at least ass-holes.

Hope to see you tomorrow.
