    Because of politics and financial corruption - Who the hell can afford to drink anymore?

    you're looking at it all wrong. with politics being as f'd up as they are - who can think about them without drinking?

    I voted no on the political question but I have to say that the old Mickey Gilly song was right on in that, "The Girls All Get Prettier at Closing Time."

    Dunno, don't drink. Haven't had a drop in over 25 years.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Since that change is a result of release of inhibitions, one should logically analyze whether or not inhibitions are a good thing and what is the base cause of the inhibitions. I bartended for a number of years and watched and enjoyed this phenomenon. Inhibitions caused by religion, cloistering, sexual taboos, upbringing, strong political views, etc. are inhibitions. Inhibiting thought may jolt one to wonder if that is OK. Or not? I personally think that Republicans are inhibited and won't talk about issues they know that their party is wrong on. Take , for example, global warming. That can't be real because if it is real they are partly to blame! Don't you think?

    In one of my favorite little dives arguing about religion or politics can get you barred.

    Re: When you drink, how do your political views change?

    I tend to voice my conservative and liberal stances I have strong views much more and talk about my deep hatred for
    China.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Re: When you drink, how do your political views change?

    drinking used to make my views a little more extreme, but i had different views then anyway.

    now my views are pretty solid even while intoxicated. i do enjoy political discussion when having a drink, but i generally avoid it in person because other people get emotional about it, and that can kill the peaceful mood of having a drink and a nice talk with a friend. there are lots of other things to talk about, and almost every other topic is more rewarding.
