    "NEW YORK — New York's iconic Empire State Building will light up red and yellow Wednesday in honor of the 60th anniversary of communist China.

    The Chinese consul, Peng Keyu, and other officials will take part in the lighting ceremony which will bathe the skyscraper in the colors of the People's Republic until Thursday, Empire State Building representatives said in a statement.

    The upper sections of the building are regularly illuminated to mark special occasions, ranging from all blue to mark "Old Blue Eyes" Frank Sinatra's death in 1998 to green for the annual Saint Patrick's Day.

    Just last week the tower turned bright red.

    However, that was not to mark some other communist achievement, but the 70th anniversary of the film "The Wizard of Oz" in which Dorothy wears ruby slippers rather than the silver of the original L. Frank Baum novel."

    Should we really be celebrating the 60th anniversary of communist China.

    I guess it really doesn't matter with the way things are going they are probably going to own the Empire State Building in about 6 months anyway. While we are at it, there is about 16 acres of empty real estate down in lower Manhattan that we can sell the Chinese too.
  2. Let it happen. They do the "wrong" things at the "worst" possible times. If they want Long Island, they can have it too. :cool:
  3. It's disgusting.

    This is who we as a country are celebrating. This man's policies are responsible for the deaths of between 40 million and 70 million people and we are celebrating it.
