I'm gay. And i WAS a Cub Scout, AND a Boy Scout. And I can tell you for certain that gay boys are not allowed in the BSA. So scouts who are aware of their sexuality and who ARE gay, stay in the closet.

(although when I was at BSA summer camp one year, I DO remember hearing about 2 boys being caught having sex with one another).

Since it IS the most-watched news network in the US, and has been for decades, I don't think that ONLY the geriatric set watches FOX. And the obvious reason that it is the most-watched news network is because UNLIKE ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, and thE rest of the leftist entertainment networks, FOX is NOT a partisan network supporting The Obamaniac iIn his MURDER of American citizens without indictment, trial, nor conviction.
FOX NEWS is ALWAYS Fair. And Balanced.
THAT is why so many people watchit instead of teh Leninist-Stalinist-Obamaniac news networks.
Since the average Fox fan is in his late 60's, in 10 years they will be broadcasting all their questionable facts and hate mongering to an empty house.

I'm nowheres near my 60's and I been watching FOX NEWS since it first began cablecasting.

And if liberal Al Gore is such an environmentalist and global warming fear-monger, why did he sell his network, which nobdoy ever watched, to the oil shieks ? Isn't that transparently hypocritical ?

And oh yeah, when is he giving part of the $100 million he recieved for his netowrk to the poor people he says he cares so much about ?

You're wrong. They DO ban gay boys as members.
Exactly. One example that was in the news recently was Ryan Andresen who was denied his Eagle Scout award and was kicked out because he is gay.

I guess you would vote for someone who only ran twice admiring and aping his unfortunate mind problems. Birds of a feather.

I said AVERAGE age, Cletus. Why should someone hand off his money to the poor? Even your Jesus threw up His hands and said the poor are on their own since there were too many to help.

If you were old enough to vote for Reagan in 1980, you were at least 18 that year. So, you are in your upper 40's at least, more possibly your 50's. Sixty ain't that far away, bright eyes. I know, since I made that horrible passover myself a couple of years ago.

PS, THIS sexagenarian does NOT watch Fox News. Only Fox cartoons on Sunday night. What I DO like on "The Simpsons" and "Family Guy" and "American Dad" they CONSTANTLY rag on Fox news and poke vicious fun at it. Even the producers of the cartoons admit their surprise at the fact that they are never told not to.

It wouldn't surprise me if allowing the cartoons is how the Fox executives rationalize using the "Fair and Balanced" tagline.

Why? Isn't that discrimination? As a man, why can't I join the Girl Scouts if I want to?

nope.

1. priovate group can have any memebers it wants...just like a high school party....no ones cares if it makes you feel bad you were not invited...
2. there is a rational reason those who are alike wish to be together...
so chess players dont need to invite cheerleaders, and italians dont need to invite asians, and straights don't need to invite gays...

Girl Scouts in the USA already allow transgendered boys (boys who plan to transition to become girls) to join. And they've long ago allowed LGBT leaders.

Do you also believe in Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny, just look at the war there waging at women and the amount of government its going to take to regulate it. You saps need to wake up its not the size of government its the agenda
