BSA is going to have SOME orgs drop out because they DON'T allow gay adult members, and OTHER orgs drop out because they DO allow gay youth members.

This half measure is not going to serve them.

I bet that now, the Boy Scouts wish they’d just let James Dale keep his Eagle Scout pin and Scoutmaster position.

Living in a house in Manoa Valley on O'ahu, there is nothing I can do to show my support for Caterpillar. It's not like I can go out and buy a tractor or something. But I'm definitely cheering them from the sidelines.

Hey, liar, I can just imagine you out spending half a million on earth movers. the only thing you buy in the millions is Cheetos. If you're going to lie, make it realistic for heaven's sake. Why not say you're going to build a rocket ship that flies to the moon?

save your specious stupid bragging for someone else. No one is buying your delusions of grandiose made up ideas.

That happens here a lot with our favorite haters. they see something that catches their fancy, like an ape seeing a peanut fly into their cage and they chase after it, having no idea what it is they are quacking about. Typical right wingers. Just go on primitive gut feelings, never use one's head.
