The Watering Hole

Recommended Posts

Well if it wasn't for the globalists, their media and the masses being incurably ignorant, Ron Paul would be our president and we would have our lost constitution back. Like Bush, Obama will use the constitution to wipe with. Have you noticed how happy Bush is with passing the baton on to Obama?

That's really disrespectful and highly ignorant to imply that you and a small percentage of the population are the only ones that can think for themselves.

I'm just an alternative media informed person.

You sure would think that MLK would be on the front page of the Grand Rapids Press today, but no, they have Obama.

Really? This is your source of alternative media?

John E., I've been known to raise a political stink on these boards here as a minority conservative/republican supporter, however, I really can't back your argument here.

I didn't vote for Obama and I personally think he IS overglorified, considering the man hasn't done anything but be elected, but I don't blame him for it. I certainly don't think he was overshadowing MLK Day. In fact, I think he is the perfect poster child of a modern day MLK (although King himself did favor some conservative principles). I agree the integrity of the media, no matter what major network you watch, is pathetic but alternative news sources have their agenda just like everyone else. Once you just learn to accept the spin, take it with a grain of salt, and use your own intelligence to digest it and come to your own conclusions, it isn't so bad.

After watching the inauguration at the Wealthy Theater we stopped at Brick Road Pizza for lunch and it was packed. We kept saying that it had only been a hour and Obama had already turned the economy around.

There's an article in the Press today that the Public Museum is working to restore the old Herpolsheimer's suspended train that used to run in the basement. I think it was posted on here before (long ago).

Well said - it was almost as painful as watching Hannity interview Limbaugh the other day.

...Saves you time not having to dig through the e-packets looking for anything juicy.

Is that how you did it, Jeff? I figured you had a mole at 1120.

Sometimes you have to go find food, other times it just shows up on your door. :)

I just got an e-mail telling stores to stop accepting Local First gift certificates because the issuers, CertifiChecks, shut down. I hope you guys used your certs! Unfortunately, I'm sitting on $20 or so still that it looks like I won't be able to redeem.

CertifiChecks went out of business and left a lot of people and organizations stranded. Check out LF website for details on how to request a refund from that company: www.localfirst.com. Also, the $15 Local First Coupon Books are not affected by this. They're still available and being accepted by participating retailers. There has been some confusion about these two offerings.

Apparently there's a half naked man who pulled the fire alarm at Kendall College and is now threatening people. Anyone see anything on the news?

YMCA two days ago, and now this. Downtown's not getting a good public image right now, that's for sure.

I believe the Y was just yesterday.

The only change: every doorway has a sign on it indicating "no more guest passes until further notice." They want patrons to have ID on them at all times. And there seemed to be more staff hanging around in the lobby. One of them was casually wandering, and our paths almost intersected as I strode purposefully through.

But busy as ever, for a Weds night.

(replace the paper towels, folks! You want us to wipe down the machines, supply the tools!)

I think the crazy guy at Kendall was more obnoxious than anything. People would have to be fairly sensitive to let that one keep them from downtown.
