    What Happened To America?

    May have seen this before but it's message holds true. This letter to the editor says a lot about how far we've moved from our foundations as a country.

    It has been taken over little by little by Progressive Liberals in both parties and we the people sat on our hands and let them do it. If we don't start to clean house and soon more of the same is coming. Can't keep the same people in office for a life time and expect much to change. It will not be easy because the main stream media is in bed with the ruling Progressives. Get out and vote in November.

    Throw the career politicians out where ever you can. That goes for local offices also.

    After the Ground Zero Mosque....Who\\\'s next?

    I don\\\'t think there is any hope for Manhattan. First the filthy mosque and now this.

    A Resort for Gays Rises in Manhattan


    Six years ago, after Ian Simpson Reisner, a developer in New York, spent a few pleasurable nights at the Axel Hotel Barcelona — part of a small chain of upscale hotels aimed at gay visitors — he was struck with an idea.

    “I called them up and said, ‘We have to bring this to New York,’ ” Mr. Reisner, a managing partner of Parkview Developers, said of the Axel’s owners. “They said, ‘Find a location and we’ll talk.’ ”

    After a brief search, he found a cavernous, long-vacant space at the western end of 42nd Street that was owned by the management company BD Hotels. Now, after securing a lease, clearing licensing hurdles, starting a buzz in the gay press and perfecting architectural plans by Paul Dominguez of Parkview, the Out NYC Urban Resort — what Mr. Reisner calls a “supersize” version of his original plan — is set to open in stages starting early next year. The $30 million, 90,000-square-foot complex is to have restaurants and bars, a spa, a reception hall, retail stores and a huge seven-nights-a-week dance club, along with a 127-room Axel Hotel.

    Out NYC is one of a number of gay-themed entertainment complexes recently opened or planned. “These places provide a concentrated feeling of community,” said Thomas Roth, president of Community Marketing, a company in San Francisco that specializes in gay and lesbian market research. “Especially for the many people who don’t otherwise have the opportunity to be the majority.”

    At a time when acceptance of gay people seems to be increasing, such resorts might seem superfluous. But Mr. Roth said his company’s research indicated a strong interest in them.

    “We can’t assume there is a ‘gay customer’ anymore,” he said. There is a lot of diversity among people who identify themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender, he said, and “some want all gay all the time — especially if they’re from, say, Omaha. So something like the Out NYC could be extremely successful.” According to studies by Community Marketing, New York City has long been the No. 1 domestic destination for American gay and lesbian travelers.

    But the centerpiece may be the 14,000-square-foot XL Dance Bar, to be located in what was originally a 100-car parking garage. It will be operated by a number of gay-nightclub pros, including John Blair and Beto Sutter, who have 25 years of promoting experience at the now-defunct clubs Limelight and Roxy, and who owned the original XL in Chelsea before losing their lease several years ago. Joining them will be Tony Fornabaio and Brandon Voss, who currently head up a popular Saturday-night dance party called Club 57.

    “They think long term,” Mr. Blair said of Mr. Fornabaio and Mr. Voss. “We are thinking long term for the Out NYC and XL. This concept can and most likely will go to other cities. So we need a big, strong team in place that can go beyond New York.”

    Mr. Reisner and Mati Weiderpass, partners in life as well as business, run Parkview Developers and were creators of the national chain store Watch World (which was sold to Sunglass Hut). “

    the majority of those voting picked the winners.

    perhaps you'd prefer that the losers get to run the country instead?

    I was thinking that the other day when I saw on the news Roger Clemens might go to jail for lying to congress. Well maybe if congress had ever set an example for him to follow he wouldn't have. They're all pathetic and every last one should be voted out. NO INCUMBENTS!
    You can run... but you'll just die tired. 3%

    That being the case....one asks...how do they not get in trouble for lying when they speak themselves...
    on the floor...in committee...oh that's right one set of laws for us....and another for them....
    how does thats famous quote go something like "He who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and a third time till at length it becomes habitual." ( Thomas Jefferson )

    If you are going to tell a lie you have to remember how you told it every time or you shall be exposed. The truth is much easier to remember. Unless of course you are a high profile liberal progressive R or D. Then you get a pass because you are much too busy doing good for all the unproductive people in our society, to be bothered by details.
