President Barack Obama:
Boy Scouts should be
open to gay members

Dallas Morning News & Wire Services, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/3/2013 5:31:56 PM

President Barack Obama on Sunday said Scouting should be open to gay members. Details to come. The Scouts´ national leadership is mulling scrapping the mandatory exclusion of gay members. Instead, the group could allow different religious and civic groups that sponsor Scout units to decide for themselves how to address the issue — either maintaining the exclusion or opening up their membership. Even though the Irving-based Boy Scouts reaffirmed the no-gays policy just seven months ago, the proposal is expected to be discussed, and possibly voted on, at the meeting of the Scouts´ national executive board,

Did he go on to proudly suggest if he had a son, the boy would be a gay Boy Scout?

If the Scouts will allow homos to join, then they must allow girls to join. There is no difference, sexuality-wise. Both the homos and the girls are attracted to the boys in the Scouts.

There have always been gay people in every organization known to man. If gay people follow the same rules as everybody else in that organization, I have no objection.

My children had gay teachers in theater, music and dance and didn´t suffer for it, but they were just regular people with no agenda. Today,everything has an agenda.

#5 that´s true, when it isn´t being done as social engineering.Some people in the Scouts are very Religious and take the oath seriously. Maybe they can just remove the God portion out of it...

The original structure was family structure.
Worked OK for a few thousand years.
Now we have government structure.
A few years, a few decades.
Not working so well, is it.

Just one more field of opportunity opened up to the new gay culture. And in a few years the boy scouts of American will be sued out of existence by abused young men. The BSA doesn´t have nearly as much money as the Catholic Church.

If you announce you are gay you are announcing that you enjoy using other men´s digestive systems for sexual thrills. This has no place what so ever in the Boy Scouts.

Look at me, says Bronco Bama. I grew up under the influence of some distinctly homosexual individuals, and it has affected my mature judgment not at all.

Of course the Current Occupant would be tolerant of openly gay mentors of youth. The Brotherhood is powerful indeed.

#3 - "If everybody follows the rules..."

If everybody followed rules we wouldn´t need police, jails, prisons, or a military. If everybody followed the rules, we could go without clothes.

But everybody doesn´t "follow the rules," and is there a "rule" regarding homosexual conduct?

There is, in the Bible. Homosexuality is wrong. But our Hussein Obama says it is just fine.

Keep homosexuals OUT of the BSA!

"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature´s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

For the liberal trolls, this is almost the first two complete paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence.

Enjoy!

As I recall the Scout Oath:
"physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight".

Why am I not surprised that the betrayer of his oath of office would also force the betrayal of their oath by all Boy Scouts, both past and present?

Amid the deterioration of our society into the cesspool, it saddens me that so many on our side have given up in the war on words. Anyone still using the term "gay" is enabling the subculture of sodomy that has seemingly taken over the MSM both in reportage and actual infiltration. A male who inserts his junk into another male´s trunk is a sodomite-period. The proliferation of this sludge into what´s left of our society can only be stopped when the real MEN still out here take a stand and refuse to call this filth anything other than it´s proper name. I am weary of cowards in sports or other professions who say what they obviously feel one day and issue false apologies the day after. We are allowing a tiny fraction of the population [their outsized presence in the media and Hollywood give a false sense of large numbers] to dictate how we speak and undermine our most beloved institutions. Wake up! There is no "gay".

I´m a big believer in the Bible and I always felt that when people talked about the coming again of Jesus that it was something to come way in the future and what was happening today was bad but was somewhat minor...Not anymore...I´ve gone back to the Book and feel devastated that the ´end is coming´ really IS...I just never thought it would happen in my lifetime but I WAS WRONG...it´s unfolding right before my eyes and I´m trying to decide to accept it peacefully or strike back at all the ´evil´ doers that are helping so hard to bring it about. Look at it, bankrupt the country with all that he learned from his ´Cloward-Piven´ theory professors, corrupting religion with ´freedoms´ that insult, mock and defy Our Lord Jesus. Accept anything as ´OK´ and lie freely and frequently to anyone at anytime...Spit on your allies and support our enemies...Ignore truths and reward cowardice, incompetence and being an out and out traitor... Does any of this look familiar to whats going on??? Brother, our clock is ticking at high speed!

I think Boy Scouts should be open to gay members... nothing wrong with happy scouts. Homosexuals, on the other hand, have no place in a young men´s organization while many are still developing their sense of male sexuality only to be abused by perverted homosexual pedophiles.

Lucianne, please excuse a second post.

I concur with #41. Let´s cease using the term "gay" and begin using homosexual, pederast, or sodomite to describe the perversion.

And I agree with #46. World conditions which will prompt His Second Coming are increasingly evident.

Come Lord Jesus.

Do homosexuals want to serve openly in the military so that it can perform its mission better?

Do homosexuals want to serve openly in the Boy Scouts so that it can perform its mission better?

If that is not the case, if some agenda other than improving and advancing these organizations is the object [evidently the case?], why should these organizations put whatever that agenda may be ahead of their organizations?

I pity Obama when he stands before His Maker and is held accountable for all his actions.

Daily he sets himself up for condemnation, to hear Father God say - Depart from Me, I never knew you!

Also, what doth it profit a man if he gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his soul.

We are living in an age of apostasy. Seems no one fears God anymore.

The only sin seems to be "getting caught"!

God, forgive US for our disregard for Your will/way.

Sodom and Gomorrah could have been saved with only 10 believers. I wonder how many are here today!


What will it take, America?

Obama is in the process of leading US to hell, not heaven!

Boy Scouts range in age from 11 to 17 years of age, chances are a kid between those ages would have little or no knowledge of the gay lifestyle, if the liberal entertainment industries were not making such a big issue of it to them. If heterosexual people were giving all those kids heterosexual sexual ideas they would be arrested for child sexual abuse.

Liberalism is the culture cancer that destroys everything it touches. Liberals seek out anything decent, traditional and good and inject its heresy and degradation little by little, bit by bit, then moves on to the next victim.

Think pedophilia is forever out of bounds? Think again. Liberals have begun their attempts to indoctrinate the ignorant and gullible. They are using the tried and true method so sucessful with homosexuality; desensitize through entertainment, demonize those not in agreement, gradually bring down age of accountability, attach it to "rights", claim it is inborn DNA and sexual attraction to the young is normal for some, and psychiatrist claiming the children suffer no real harm from sex with adults ( this is already in the "science".).

Little by little, bit by bit. Satan´s political party will sanction it all for more power and control. There is nothing the Democrats will not support given a great enough political constituency.

I don´t believe anyone or any group has denied them the privilege of starting "Gay Scouts of America." Those individuals or families that like the idea can become leaders or become troop members. Then they are free to do their thing. But I just bet lawsuits would soon be plentiful. That´s a risk for any organization, especially where youth are involved. Would they be brave enough. is it important enough to go independent of the Boy Scouts? I think not, as the radical ´pushers´ of moral decline, aimed at traditional American families, operate better as parasites on the healthy host...
If they REALLY believe in this lifestyle.. go for it, independently.. willing to learn from the results of their standards, their efforts within their own organization. Put it to a test..

The next Keystone? Natural gas
project draws environmentalist ire
Fox News, by Mike Emanuel    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/23/2014 9:53:25 PM     Post Reply
A liquefied natural gas facility in southern Maryland is generating intense criticism from environmental groups, in a fight that echoes the protracted battle over the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. Energy company Dominion Resources is hoping to invest up to $3.8 billion to upgrade the Cove Point LNG facility as an export terminal. If successful, it could become the East Coast´s chief LNG export facility, sending billions of cubic feet of natural gas to Japan, India, and elsewhere. Dominion stresses that the project would have a huge economic impact close to home as well. "The local area of Calvert County gets

´Chiraq´: Chicago Becoming More

During the first two weeks of nice temperatures in Chicago this year--which included Easter weekend--the city was beset with some 100 shootings with nearly a dozen dead. This intense violence has earned the Windy City a brand new nickname bestowed by its own citizens: "Chiraq." Over Easter weekend, there were 45 separate shooting victims in Chicago, four of which died. The previous weekend saw 35 shootings in only 36 hours that resulted in several more deaths. There were even more shootings and deaths during the intervening days between the weekends, as well. All this violence has turned Chicago into a

Perry Pitches Texas to New York
Businesses, Hits Cuomo on Ads

Texas Gov. Rick Perry was in New York today to make his pitch to business leaders he hopes to lure to the Lone Star State, and took the opportunity to reissue his debate challenge to Gov. Andrew Cuomo–who today declined the request. “Yes, I’m here recruiting business. I’m don’t shy away from that. I’m very upfront about that. But I’m also here to help stimulate a conversation with the people of New York state, the people in New York City, the legislators, the governor,” said Mr. Perry, speaking to reporters after a lunch with business owners at Hill Country BBQ.

No time for cowards — let´s
talk about race, America
Chicago Tribune, by John Kass    Original Article

When it comes to race in America, the last thing I´d want is to be considered a coward. But then, it´s so easy to be cowardly in America when it comes to race. It´s not normal for people to take positions that can leave them vulnerable and make it easy for others to brand them as racist and then shun them. Such pressure is a fact of American life. So instead of talking, they clam up. Their lips may stop moving. But they don´t stop thinking. And Attorney General Eric Holder said as much shortly after Barack Obama was elected president

Ties to Alleged $67 Million Ponzi Scheme

The hedge fund founded and until recently run by billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer was deeply involved in an alleged Ponzi scheme that siphoned tens of millions of dollars from foreign investors, an analysis of public records shows. Steyer, the founder and former senior managing partner of Farallon Capital Management, was listed as a top corporate officer of a Farallon fund that was named as a defendant in a 2005 lawsuit filed by those investors. Other parties allegedly involved in the scheme have since been arrested on charges of financial fraud involving the project that allegedly provided the vehicle for the

After taking some shots at Stephen Colbert in an interview with The Daily Caller Tuesday, George Will appeared as a guest on The Colbert Report last night and began by telling the host the difference between his old job as an ABC News contributor and his new one with Fox News. “I love it,” Will said of Fox. “Fox News is like getting on a Southwest Airlines plane. Everyone’s happy, they’re at the top of the heap and they feel like insurgents.” “Wow, that’s great,” Colbert replied. “That sounds almost dangerous.” The majority of the rest of the interview was

President Obama has arrived in Japan at the start of his latest Asia trip and was greeted by a familiar face: American Ambassador Caroline Kennedy. Mrs Kennedy stood alongside her husband Edwin Schlossberg, who still lives in New York in spite of his wife´s diplomatic posting in Tokyo but he flew over for the presidential visit. Rather than going straight for a formal welcome reception at a government building, the group headed to an iconic landmark of another sort. Obama and his dining partner, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, didn´t to have trouble scoring seats at Sukiyabashi Jiro. Scroll down

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the Obama administration

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives
