Drink Liberally Tonight!

Finally, it's time again for Drinking Liberally Chapel Hill! This whole "only meeting twice a month" thing is kind of a drag. Our goal for tonight has got to be to get enough people out to Tyler's to justify at least one more monthly meeting. And to show up the Repubbies who mocked—that's right: mocked—our flyer while I was at Kinkos. Yes, it's truly hard to be enlightened these days. For most folks, anyway. For the rest of us, there's Drinking Liberally. Who's With Mah!?

Oh, I almost forgot—don't forget the words of the dread Pirate Robert: Ye'll walk yourself home with heart heavy and black if ye forget the Speakeasy's in the back!


The Forest and the Teas

The boys over that the John Locke Foundation are in a swivet this morning about the fact that two North Carolina wingnuts fought hard to pull in some pork barrel money for the Sparta Teapot Museum. It's a recycled story from last year, but it does warrant thinking through.

Dear Mr. President:


WHEN YOU


DUMP FISA


TERRORISTS WIN


Let me remind you, Mr. President. This is what you said on September 11, 2001:



Statement by the President in His Address to the Nation



8:30 P.M. EDT


THE PRESIDENT: Good evening. Today, our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist acts.

America was targeted for attack because we're the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world. And no one will keep that light from shining.

I have a new Vets Blog out for NC-11!

Taylor Reports Have Million-Dollar Errors
>
> By John Armor
>
> Every Member of Congress, and every candidate for Congress, is required to file Reports with the House Ethics Committee on their financial holdings and transactions. Apparently, few people take a serious look at these after they are filed. The Reports filed by incumbent 11th District Representative, Charles Taylor, for the last seven years (the ones available on-line) show five errors in excess of $1 million each, plus one unexplained item for about $20 million.
>
> These Reports are filed with the Clerk of the House but they "will be reviewed by the Committee on Standards of Official Conduct [the House Ethics Committee]." The Reports must be signed by the Member or candidate, who must certify that "the statements ... are true, complete and correct to the best of my knowledge and belief." "Civil penalties and criminal sanctions [including perjury]" apply to anyone who "knowingly and willingly falsifies ... or willfully fails to file" these Reports.

Stalker

An anonymous person in my neighborhood has been leaving books in my mailbox. The second one arrived today. It is called "The Final Days" by Barbara Olson. This one promises to reveal:

How the Clintons and the Rodhams enriched themselves with "Pardons for Sale." The scandalous story of Marc Rich - his connection to Castro's Cuba, Libya's Gaddafi, and Bill Clinton. How Hillary shamelessly solicited gifts, a shakedown artists in a pink dress. The other Travelgate: how Clinton's globtrotting cost taxpayers half a billion dollars.

I suppose my anonymous neighbor thinks I'll read this piece of crap book and come to the startling realization the the Clinton administration was a horrible blight on our nation's history. Think again, dear neighbor. And while you're at it, think about the $27.95 you paid for this hardback book being dumped in the recycling bin along with the first book you gave me. Because frankly, I don't spend one second of any day thinking about Bill Clinton. Nope, the person on my mind is Dear Leader, King George W. Bush, the continuing disaster that is our president. So please. Keep your trashy books out of my mailbox.

Feds Propose 34 Mile Road Through Smokies

(Cross-posted at the new Appalachian Voices blog)

This is what Swain County, NC looks like...

The federal government is now poised to build a 34-mile road right through Smokies on the North Carolina side, destroying one of the largest remaining pristine forestlands in the Eastern United States.

The deadline for comments on the draft of the “Environmental Impact Statement”(EIS) is this Friday, April 7. Please submit a comment to the Park Service today to oppose the North Shore Road.
