Fruit,
things are coming along still hoping Labor day weekend, so we will be touch with all three of you soon,
Peter

The front wall of the bar has been completely removed and borded up with huge sheets of plywood.  My latest word was he’ll completely glass-in the face of the bar with sliding doors that will open to the sidewalk outside.  Reports are sketchy, complaints range from “no activity seen whatsoever” to “permits and licenses are moving slowly”.

He’s been hoping to open this joint since mid-June 2009.

Update: City of Minneapolis gave Pete an “expansion of property” license last Wednesday.  Click for the PDF, look on page 3.

Gay Dude Gets Plum Job @ Justice Dept: Who Cares?!

This is boring:

On the same day that  the Justice Department softened its position in a gay-marriage lawsuit, word is emerging that the department has hired a liaison to the gay community.

Matt Nosanchuk, a former adviser to Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), will join the department as a senior counselor to the assistant attorney general for civil rights, according to an e-mail University of Pennsylvania Professor Tobias Wolff sent to associates Monday night. Wolff was a top LGBT adviser on the Obama campaign. In the e-mail, obtained by POLITICO, Wolff said Nosanchuk “will be the front office point person on LGBT issues for the DOJ Civil Rights Division” among other duties.

The hire looks like yet another effort by the Obama administration to calm the anger of the gay community over a series of perceived slights., including a controversial brief filed in June in a lawsuit over the Defense of Marriage Act

A Justice Department spokeswoman had no immediate comment on the reported hire.

Yellow-highlights are mine – because the attempt is pathetically obvious. That “controversial brief” filed by Obama’s DOJ compared gay-relationships to incest with uncles sleeping with nephews and other disgusting perversions.

I’m still offended.  Mr. Nosanchuk’s service to Mr. Obama is a patronizing puppet show.  Typical for a Democrat to whip out a dummy in order to perform a thesis for a Ph.D. in Vantriloquism.

Did you miss an African-American “liason” to the DOJ?  How about looking for a “Woman” liason?  Need a “Puerto Rican liason”?FruitFly 6

Blurring the lines between racism and sexual orientation is a chemistry set. Obama is  simply clueless on what to do with his bunson burners.

Bite me, Barack!  You hate us – we get it.  We were dumb.

Julian Bond of the NAACP supports the GLBT community better than setting up a skinny-white guy to represent us. Thanks for the patsy, Dude-in-Chief.  I’m totally convinced that Mr. Nosanchuk will play any role in your adminstration beyond yuk-yuk-jokes, Uranus-laffs and Faggot-gaffs.
