Drinking Liberally Shot of Truth

Where Can We Send Him?

Trump followers chant "Send her back"
aiming an age-old racist trope at Ilhan Omar,
a refugee-turned-rep & one of the first
Muslim women in Congress.

Trump's condemned by Congress
but revels in his attacks on the Squad,
as well as attacks on immigrants,
separating families, flaunting the law.

Trump distracts & McConnell obstructs
while Dems want to push an agenda
of health care, jobs, education,
climate change & fair economy
to ensure our nation works for all.

One agenda of division & destruction.
One agenda full of heart and hope.
One agenda says "Go back home."
The other: "Give us your tired, your poor,
your huddled masses yearning to breath free."

If GOP won't grow a spine, time to get the boot.
And let's send Trump packing -- but not home --
after all, New York City doesn't want him back.

Feeling furious or feisty or just looking for fun

Abuse of Power vs Disuse of Power

A billionaire arrested for sexual assault
entangles Trump's Labor Secretary.
Yet House Dems call for Acosta's resignation
rather than pursue his removal.

Kids are still locked in cages,
more detention camps are built,
widespread raids are threatened
& GOP stands with Trump's approach.
Yet House Dems approve spending
that funds these atrocities.

Despite the court, the administration pushes
to add its citizenship census question.
Despite subpoenas & agreements,
it urges officials NOT to appear before Congress.
Yet House Dems stall over contempt,
slow-walk demands for information
& stifle the momentum for impeachment.

And while Trump attacks the ACA,
climate regulations & the Constitution,
House leadership attacks its own members.

Many of us fear Trump's power.
House Dems seem to fear their own.

The GOP abuses power. Dems neglect it.
Time to turn the power back on in the House.

How You Handle a Mad King

243 years ago, the Declaration of Independence
listed out grievances against a mad king.
Now a madman in a chaotic White House
reins down abuses across the U.S.

In 1776, they protested standing armies,
politicized judges & defiance of laws.
In 2019, Trump defies the SCOTUS decisions
Congressional subpoenas & rule of law
while applauding tanks in Washington, DC.

A revolution was fought for
life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness.
Trump builds inhumane detention camps
& plans massive raids to separate families.

The Declaration ended with a mutual pledge
of lives, fortunes & sacred honor.
So while we all definitely need to vote,
maybe there's even more we can do.

The founders & signers showed us
how you handle a mad king:
You don't compromise & normalize --
you organize, mobilize & democratize.

Feeling revolutionary or just want revelry,
raise a voice, a cheer & a pint
at your local progressive social club.

Off and Running!

20 Democratic candidates take the stage
over 2 nights with 1 critical mission:
to become the one to take on Trump,
take back the White House
& take our country forward.

Trump threatens Iran,
attacks immigrants and refugees,
runs horrific detention centers
& pushes through right wing judges
with the help of Mitch McConnell.

Meanwhile, a credible accuser
describes Trump's sexual assault
& Mueller makes a date with Congress.

Congress needs to stop Trump,
or a Dem nominee need to beat him
-- and either way, it's we the people
who need to stand up to him.

It's not just the 24 candidates --
in the race to stop this administration,
we all have to be off and running.

Run with our crowd & raise a pint
with like-minded left-leaners
at your local progressive social club.

The Baiter vs Debaters

Trump & his team bait Iran
into escalating tensions
through senseless provocations,
that could result in devastation.

Democrats debate impeachment
as Trump defies & dares them,
& debate the term "concentration camps"
as he builds child prisons at the border
& attacks immigrants to launch his campaign.

And a week before the Democratic debates,
Dems debate Biden's nostalgia
for an ardent racist who served in the Senate.

In a week, we'll see which of 20 Dems
prove to be a masterful debater,
but as Trump shows every day,
he is truly the master baiter.

Cool off your outrage or heat up your spirits
with warm conversation & cold beers
at your local progressive social club.

How Dare He? How Dare We Not?

Trump says if foreign agents offer dirt,
he'd take it, not contact the FBI.
Which should surprise nobody
as Trump dares Democrats to impeach.

Dems close in on contempt votes
& keep issuing subpoenas,
as Trump cronies defy subpoenas,
set their own rules & in all ways
show their own contempt for Congress.

Chaos & lies from the census to trade,
attacks on immigrants & on abortions,
and a GOP that obstructs & ignores
while enabling the White House.

And while a federal agency recommended
Kellyanne Conway be fired,
she's hardly the most criminally corrupt
in this cartel of crooks & cronies
Congress is failing to Constitutionally confront.

You can ask "How dare he?"
about Trump's many misdeeds,
but until Congress opens impeachment,
we should be asking, "How dare we not?!"

Whatever you're asking, we have the answer:
cold drinks, cool company, warm conversation
at your local, progressive social club.

High Time for High Crimes

Mueller speaks up to make clear
his team did not clear Trump,
while every Trump official lays low
defying subpoenas from Congress.

States go after abortion rights
with bans, bullying & B.S.,
pushing for a case at a Supreme Court
which bears the marks of manipulation
by the meddling mad Mitch McConnell.

The White House cozies up
with dictators & despots globally,
but is scared of the USS John McCain.
& terrified of refugees looking to make
a better life here in America.

Whether it's the obstruction, abuse of power,
the attacks on our Constitution or communities,
the Mueller conclusions or daily corruptions ...
it's high time the House talks about high crimes
to shine a light through these dark times.

In the meantime, we'll have our own high times
as we raise our spirits, voices and a glass
celebrating 16 years of Drinking Liberally!

We began in 2003 when a corrupt White House
marched us into a war based on lies,
trampled Constitutional rights,
while serving billionaires and corporations.

16 years later, that sounds familiar ...
and we're still here -- your familiar faces
at your regular progressive social club
at hundreds of locations across the U.S.

So come by for an anniversary toast
to mark 16 years—and we keep on chugging.

He's Mad. We're Angry.

His immigration policy has led
to more youth deaths than reported
& his infanticide lies & judicial picks
fuel a right-wing war on abortion rights.

He sues to hide financial records,
orders his admin to ignore subpoenas
& tantrums out of a leadership meeting
demanding Congress stop investigating.

He tweets threats to "end" Iran,
preps to pardon war criminals on Memorial Day,
Ben Carson mistakes Oreos and REOs,
& Mnuchin keeps Harriet Tubman off the $20,
ensuring Andrew Jackson stays in place.

He's a madman presiding over chaos,
corruption, criminality, destruction & discord.
He may be mad -- but we're angry ...
and we're ready to act, impeach & elect.

Now if only the Democratic leadership
seemed as angry & active as the rest of us ...

Vent & rant, revive & imbibe
as you share company & conversation
at your local progressive social club.

Unprecedented 'til Unpresidented

Alabama criminalizes abortion,
other states are following suit,
and a right wing supreme court
that doesn’t respect precedent
may get to overturn Roe v. Wade

John Bolton’s long wanted an Iran war
& pushes Trump who wants some war
to start a war with Iran in a build up
that looks just like the Iraq War playbook .

The White House defies House subpoenas,
may block McGahn and Mueller testimony,
Barr won’t release the full report
& Don Jr cuts a deal for closed door hearings

Some of this feels like the oldest reruns
of deception, disruption & destruction --
and some is shockingly unprecedented
which is why someone needs to be unpresidented.

You need the cool company & liberal libations
of political camaraderie & conversation
at your local progressive social club.

Contemptible!

Trump claims executive privilege
to block the full Mueller report
while Barr continues to bar the truth
& defies Congress, skipping hearings.

They refuse to turn over tax returns,
try to block McGahn's revelations,
may obstruct Mueller’s testimony
& are full-on in secrecy & stonewalling.

Meanwhile they seek to launch a war,
raising the drumbeat against Iran,
making threats about Venezuela
while waging a war on immigrants,
women’s rights & freedom at home.

Now Dems may hold Barr in contempt.

Welcome to the club!
The rest of us found this criminal crew
contemptible a long time ago.

You deserve a drink
& a night of likable, liberal companions
at your local, progressive social club.
