Humorist P. J. O’Rourke this week

Humorist P. J. O’Rourke this week

These last several weeks have been super serious, so we’re sitting down to laugh with legendary political satirist P.J. O’Rourke. Some of my fave P. J. truisms:

  • The Democrats are the party that says government will make you smarter, taller, richer, and remove the crabgrass on your lawn. The Republicans are the party that says government doesn’t work and then they get elected and prove it.
  • Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.
  • When buying and selling are controlled by legislation, the first things to be bought and sold are legislators.
I mean, come on, who doesn’t want to learn from a man brave enough to publish an article titled: “How to Drive Fast on Drugs While Getting Your Wing-Wang Squeezed and Not Spill Your Drink.”

So join me Tuesday, June 16th, 2020 @ 7 pm MT and learn how not to spill your drink while getting your wing-wang… you get the picture!

These live drinking parties started as a way to come together during this Gawd-awful government lockdown and has morphed into a fun way to connect with friends new and old, talk politics, and revel in political incorrectness. I hope you will join us this coming Tuesday for a few beers!

Technical stuff
• If you want to “video in” live and talk with us, and I hope you do, you MUST be connected via Zoom and you MUST have a drink in your hand.
• If you don’t want to be on video with us live, any format will work just to watch, and you MUST have a drink in your hand.
• If you don’t want to join us at all, well, then you’re just drinking alone. And once again..  that’s just sad.

If you haven’t seen the most recent episode with Americans for Tax Reform Founder and President Grover Norquist, you can watch it here!

You might not know that Independence is a working media center for Colorado’s center-right. We run three studios serving not only us but our allies fighting for a freer Colorado. In fact, we tape our PBS-12 show, Devil’s Advocate, at our Studio B Bar. Tune in this Friday night as I chat with one of the main guys working to turn Colorado into a socialist haven, Ian Silverii of Progress Now. That’s Friday, June 12th, 2020 at 8:30 pm MT on Channel 12 or any time after on our YouTube channel, IITV.

Drink Freedom,


P.S. We figured out the reason Independence Institute wasn’t raided by the rioters disrupting an otherwise peaceful protest. Thank you to all law enforcement officers who stood their ground and defended the ordered liberty our Founders’ guaranteed in our Declaration of Independence and Constitution.
