Booze for Liberals

Drinking Liberally opens chapter in Hoboken, NJ

I personally think alcohol and politics don’t mix well, but one liberal drinking group disagrees. Drinking Liberally announced that they’ve opened up a chapter here in Hoboken – and you can find out more during the Presidential Debate next Wednesday, October 3rd at 7pm at the Hoboken Bar & Grill (230 Washington St.)

They have over 230 indoctrination zones chapters across the country. Here’s what they’re all about:

“An informal, inclusive progressive social group. Raise your spirits while you raise your glass, and share ideas while you share a pitcher. Drinking Liberally gives like-minded, left-leaning individuals a place to talk politics. You don’t need to be a policy expert and this isn’t a book club – just come and learn from peers, trade jokes, vent frustration and hang out in an environment where it’s not taboo to talk politics.”

What does “Liberal” mean to you these days?

You know what, I’m just gonna go ahead and write it… 3-Card-Monty folded card #1: What is Liberalism? It’s not what you think. Liberalism is founded upon both liberty and equality (liberalism = liberation). So how do you contradict that? You engineer egalitarianism as the equality of outcome, meaning you artificially execute governance by eradicating individual liberty (self ownership), and the state decides how much of your earned merit you get to keep. This is card #1. folded card #2: Liberalism liberated the slaves, who were previously defined as a property, meaning they had no individual sovereignty (self ownership). No… Read more »

responding with my opinion xxrjxx (#15) said: “2) I’ve given up trying to rationalize and reason with the irrational. Try having an argument based on logic rather than emotion and you quickly find that you have little common ground on which a discussion can be held. And therein lies a fundamental problem with politics today–people don’t focus on the fundamental principles and the acts/actions which should follow. Rather, they focus on the promise of actions, which inevitably are left in the dust of the election wastebin.” my response: Not how I read it. Seems as though you’ve not given up… Read more »

Yup. For those who won’t change their mind and won’t change the subject nothing beats an echo chamber.
