Is this where the bowling alley is? Has anyone thought about possibly getting the bowling alley back up and running to increase the stuff for all ages to do? But no another hotel would be in the best interest of the city?

Not only that, but with a sagging economy, the price of commercial space is outrageous. I don't understand how people think they can still get 1.00+ per square foot when in fact there are a ton of open places downtown.

Why do we need 10,000 hotels? There will soon be more hotels then there are people who live here.

I have seen these arguments and figures from many individuals who will or can not look at the other side. Worlds change, nations change, and with that comes cultural changes. These cultural changes are hard in some cases, and in others they are not. Our nation is still so young compared to other countries around the world, countries that have looked at what weapons can do and decided to control access much more than The United States does.

What frustrates me the most about many on the far left or far right is that they will only listen to their political "champions" and not look at facts or middle of the road news and opinions.

This argument/differing of opinions will never be remedied. There will always be those who scream "murder murder murder" and those who say "to each their own" or "pro-choice".

Why it is so hard for those in the former can not understand those who are in the latter, but the latter can understand those of the former?

Everyone fights about God... Well you know what? God gave free choice right? Then let me have free choice over my body and you have free choice over yours.

GoodWill provides jobs to individuals who may otherwise be unable to get them, therefore helping the community as a whole. Otherwise I am not a huge fan, their goods are usually greatly overpriced.

I think that you may be a little harsh. I work daily, get dressed every morning, don't procedure bodily functions, nor do a lot of people I know that live there. With any town (especially larger cities) there are homeless, those without the same benefits as others. Also a big issue not just here but everyone is the usage of Meth.

I am sorry, but the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination “full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, and accommodations of any place of public accommodation, without discrimination or segregation on the grounds of race, color, religion or national origin.”

Since Businesses are considered places of public accommodation, meaning they seek the patronage of the public as a part of their business they are not authorized to discriminate.

The "Right to Refuse Service" is not a catch all to violate any of the acts or laws set forth by the state or country.

The idea that this country was "founded" on God is up for debate, but lets say that it is true. God (note that I am adding the upper case G out of respect for your beliefs) is no more powerful than my Dieties, or Buddha, Mohammad, Turtle Spirit, etc. In my teachings of the Christian faith, it is said to love thy neighbor like thy own. That means regardless of if your neighbor is gay, transgendered, Muslim, Hindu, WHATEVER. Respect all, and you will receive respect, deny respect, and you sir will not get any.

EC is exactly right, when it comes to how you act outside of the professional world you have a choice, but the minute you open a business you have to abide by different laws.
