Drinking Liberally Shot of Truth

Workers rallied & picketed & marched
While Occupiers took to the streets together
As Americans call for help from their leaders,
Will Americans shouting "May Day!" in solidarity
Share a chant & a chat, a pint & the night

All Romney had to do was take stands against
The Republican Party has already targeted
The right-wing has screamed that Obama is
Romney's polls show that everyone dislikes him.
Dislike others as they dislike you --
Share reactions, make predictions,

This year's Living Liberally celebration is coming up on May 10th, and it has me reflecting on what my favorite Living Liberally moment was from 2012.
Although there are many of them, I have to say that my experiences at the OWS Drinking Liberally chapter at Zuccotti Park easily take the cake. Moreover, I found OWS Drinking Liberally on the whole to be indicative of both what is best about Living Liberally, and Occupy Wall Street itself.
It was a perfect match. OWS is an idea, one whose time has come and which never could be evicted. And this is precisely why OWS is made manifest through so many cultural formats, which are so naturally able to express a central idea like this one.
Living Liberally is a platform to celebrate liberal culture, which finds direct alignment in the Occupy idea. Namely, that our political structures should serve us, the people — all of us.
This is why I am so proud to have been able to contribute to both OWS and LL by hosting a few of those fantastic OWS Drinking Liberally’s.
Zuccotti Park was still first getting off the ground, and we were able to provide as inviting a format as possible for like-minded new-comers to learn about Occupy. This was crucial then, and there remains a need for more of these kind of endeavors today. The Occupy movement is so innovative and different that it can be very difficult to understand and intimidating to approach, which is why being able to experience it in a shared cultural setting like OWS Drinking Liberally was such a perfect way for so many to be introduced.
The OWS Drinking Liberally crew proved to be a perfect part of the solution for this at the most crucial of times last Fall, and I particularly relished being able to take so many amazing and influential liberals across the street and give them their first tour of ‘Liberty Square’.
So if you can make it to New York City on May 10th, come join us in celebrating this and all of the other ways that Living Liberally has touched the core of American society!
The 2012 Living Liberally celebration will not be one to miss, and there couldn’t be a better time to show your support for this increasingly impactful cultural fixture in contemporary America.

We chide corporate execs for their excesses,
We blast Big Business for not playing by the rules,
We demand more respect from vulture capitalists,
People say government should behave like Big Business:
Let's be a little LESS like Big Business for awhile.
We hope our CEO takes responsibility & takes action

With Santorum out, the presumptive GOP nominee
Paul Ryan's ranks line up behind a radical plan
And as deficit hawks shout, "Cut, cut, cut,"
Conservatives want to wage a war on the budget.
When the going gets tough, O gets Buff…

At Passover, we celebrate the Israelites' Exodus,
At Easter, we remember a man wrongfully judged & crucified,
This weekend, we'll be honoring dissidents & protesters,
Moses would have been strip searched.
Maybe we do need to read the Haggadah again this year…
Pre-game Passover, anticipate Easter or celebrate spring

Conservatives go to the High Court with the low goal
Republicans realize that Romney's the one
The Tea Party Congress does what it promised:
Whatever your opinion of ObamaCare
If you care, come share -- you know where --

For once, Romney keeps his own mouth shut
Santorum refuses to shake anything up,
Meanwhile Ron Paul & Newt Gingrich
Faced with these choices, even Republicans
But who knows? It could all shake up again.
Shake out your thoughts & stake out a seat

As we resist domestic saber-rattling on Iran,
As we seek to provide humanitarian aid in Syria,
And as we try to calm & exit Afghanistan,
Global action doesn't become easier
Or as the old saying goes, with friends like these,
Or maybe that's a new saying for new times…
