“We think Tea makes for a boring party. We would rather drink Liberals.”
And we would much rather have a reality-based moderate who respects people representing the 33rd District in Richmond than a radical self-important nanny-stater with a penchant for taking the law into his own hands (even though the latter would certainly help hasten the demise of what the contemporary Virginia GOP has become).
These guys are awesome. Trust me.
Bonus recipe for those wishing to get into the spirit; I’m guessing you would want to add an extra dash of bitters to this.
1 1/2 oz rye whiskey
1/2 oz sweet vermouth
1/4 oz Amer Torani
2 dashes orange bitters
lemon twist garnish
In a mixing glass, add all ingredients except lemon twist.
Add ice. Stir.
Strain into a chilled martini glass.
Garnish with a lemon twist.
Enjoy responsibly, the way we would like to be governed.
Crossposted at Equality Loudoun
The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Sterling has always been a great friend to Equality Loudoun and the LGBT community. We are pleased be co-sponsoring this event with them, along with the Unitarian Universalist Church of Loudoun, St. James United Church of Christ, and Loudoun Out Loud.
The concert will benefit the outreach work of People of Faith for Equality in Northern Virginia, a subset of the People of Faith for Equality in Virginia (POFEV). POFEV is an interfaith collaboration that seeks equal rights for all citizens through prayer, education, organization, and advocacy while challenging those who equate religious faith and intolerance.
It’s unfortunate that there are people who do equate those things (!), but it’s clear to most that it’s all over but the shouting. So let the bitter folk shout and whine while the rest of us sing. Hope to see you there!
From my inbox:
Homes for Our Troops will be building at NO COST to the veteran a specially designed brand new home for a disabled veteran. The recipient of this new home will be Marine Lance Corporal Michael Martinez. LCpl Martinez was 5 months into his first deployment when he lost both of his legs in an IED blast in Helmand Province, Afghanistan on March 11, 2010.
This organization is need of volunteers and supplies including donations for tent/chairs/pa system and food donation requests. We will also need an honor guard, national anthem singer, escort and key speakers. Most importantly, we are looking for someone who will donate the flag pole that will be placed in the front yard of this hero’s new home.
If you know anyone that would be willing to donate these items, or volunteer supplies or their time on this weekend to help in the build, please forward this email along.
You can contact Christopher West or Renee Larsh for more information.
I’m going to help out, won’t you?
