Is there anyone else out there besides me that sees through that phony non-profit organization? They do NOTHING productive for the city of Utica. The only thing they exist for is to be an elitist social club for a bunch of yuppie wannabes who want to go around patting themselves on the back for not doing anything but having social hours at local bars and restaurants a few times a month.

Yeah these guys are a joke. I attended a few of these events a while ago, and it was unreal to see how retarded these people were.

That being said, I think it serves a purpose. There are some major gaps in the "things to do" area for 30-40 year olds who don't want to be part of the Varick St. booze patrol.

If they do indeed serve the purpose of providing things to do as an alternative to Varick Street, then that still only qualifies them as a social club and they should not have been granted non-profit status by the federal government. This group is nothing but a fraud. Durso does nothing productive except to plan the next Genesis Group social hour and get his name in the paper a few times a month. That does not constitute a true non-profit.

The Genesis Group is supposed to be a think tank, made up of intelligent people. What a joke. I personally know a number of these people and most have never had an original idea in their lives. Additionally,they have absolutely no creativity, or ingenuity. Really!!! Being educated should not equate to being intelligent. Let's get some people from the real world in these "GROUPS," and something positive may actually develop.
By the way some of these "authorities on all subjects," need to be reminded that they inherited Daddy's or Mommy and Daddy's business which doesn't make them as much of an authority as they pretend.

That group was started as a disguised money-making scam by a group of approximately 5 people, at least one of them a local attorney. The founding members made their money and left (the group, not the area).

Today, its worthless except to its few members who most likely derive only an inflated ego from their membership.

when Durso had the travel agency, one of his employees suggested a computerized mailing list to him. he turned it down, since he couldnn't understand the concept and didn't want to explore options for progress. he is a fake.

I think that it is Jesus or it might have been Johnny Cochran, then again it might have been an out of town lawyer by the name of Tom Thumb.

This seems like the Community Action B.S. Are the books open to the public ? I don't trust groups like this. It's all about people lining their own pockets at other's expense.

Log in (for free) to Guidestar ( www.guidestar.org ) and look at the Genesis Group's 1099 forms. They should be nominated for the National Fiction Awards.
