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?

I don’t know how anyone can look another person in the eye and say they’re voting for Obama. And what is left-leaning anyway? Sounds more like a group with disabilities.

That is funny John, because I feel the same way about people who are planning on voting for Romney….

As for the meaning of left leaning, in case you were serious:

In politics, Left, left-wing and leftist are generally used to describe support for social changes to create a more egalitarian society….

“create a more egalitarian society….” You’re basically saying an equal society without choosing a significant qualifier. Are you saying 1) an equal and free society built upon individual sovereignty and limited government, or 2) a controlled and engineered society without individual sovereignty and autocracy? There’s a divide here. There are those take equal to mean – equal opportunity – to make yourself whatever you wish, to earn as you please, to succeed as you try. Then there are those who will seize control, punish you for your success and reward those who did not earn it – this they call equalization of outcome.… Read more »

earn as you please…then sell the company, make millions and farm-out the labor overseas, putting tens of thousands of U.S citizens out of work. what-it’s all about individuals making money, right? fuck everybody else.[quote comment=”217336″]“create a more egalitarian society….”You’re basically saying an equal society without choosing a significant qualifier.

Either way it sounds like an event perfectly suited for those who want to reinforce the opinions they already have and otherwise remain in their bubble of unchallenged thinking.

For people whose politics is their religion this is ideal – a liberal revival meeting where they can disparage Christian “religious freaks” (among others) with no sense of irony.

Hansbrix, that’s funny. re-read your first paragraph, “people who want to reinforce the opinions they already have and otherwise remain in their bubble of unchallenged thinking”
that, my friend, is the wikipedia definition of “christian religious freaks”[quote comment=”217339”]Either way it sounds like an event perfectly suited for those who want to reinforce the opinions they already have and otherwise remain in their bubble of unchallenged thinking.For people whose politics is their religion this is ideal – a liberal revival meeting where they can disparage Christian “religious freaks” (among others) with no sense of irony.[/quote]

You and your friends are probably dogmatic creationists and don’t even realize it.

The left and right are voluntarily participating in a socially engineered rivalry. Since whenever it began, humans believe (in the natural world) that they’re physically week, and mentally overpowered. So camps formed and people gravitated to that which more easily manipulated them most. This is where the engineering of rivalry found its origin. Believe it or not, but both the left and right have their own deity; the right being the institution of religion, the left being the institution of religion. Wait did I make a mistake? Nope, the left is as religious as the right, but not to the… Read more »

Brix, I’ve always denounced creationism, despite it getting beating into me by nuns. Racer, I don’t agree with your sociological theory of the left and right, but both of you have a nice weekend.[quote comment=”217344″]The left and right are voluntarily participating in a socially engineered rivalry.Since whenever it began, humans believe (in the natural world) that they’re physically week, and mentally overpowered.

I’m referring to Liberal Creationism where discussion, debate, and, ironically, scientific inquiry, particularly involving egalitarianism outside the law is actively discouraged if not forbidden. Ideally heretics are to be denounced as witches, publicly shunned,  and their careers burned at the stake where ever possible. Don’t know if that describes you/your viewpoint but it seems to be a common theme among the left. Btw if you were to witness someone berating a Muslim for beliefs resembling creationism would you applaud…or call it out as a hate crime?[quote comment=”217345″]Brix, I’ve always denounced creationism, despite it getting beating into me by nuns.
