LiberalOC reaches the 5000 post mark

Today we have reached the 5000 post mark for our almost four-year old blog. April 26th marks our fourth birthday. For four years we have brought liberal perspective to the orange county blogosphere.

Tonite: Drinking Liberally Santa Ana – An Anti-Tea Party

As we do every week, tonight we hold our Drinking Liberally gathering in Santa Ana. In response to the rallies of people across the country who have been fooled, by an astro-turf movement created by corporate interests that care nothing about the people they are whipping up into mini-riots, we raise a glass to democracy.

Celebrating 3 Years of Drinking Liberally in Santa Ana

Three years ago, on August 17th to be exact, Mike Lawson hosted the first gathering in Orange County for Drinking Liberally. We met at Memphis at the Santora in Santa Ana for what Mike hoped would be a regular weekly gathering place for Orange County Liberals. It’s wasn’t so much about drinking, rather it was about…

Drinking Liberally and Responsibly

With the arrest of Westminster City Councilmember Andy “Van Tran’s Henchman” Quach (R) for driving with a blood alcohol level of .26% posting a reminder about Drinking Liberally this week seems a bit, well weird. At any rate, we will be gathering at Memphis Thursday evening at 8:30 pm for our weekly liberal discussion group.…
