Rick Perry said emphatically Saturday that the Boy Scouts of America shouldn't soften its strict no-gays membership policy, and dismissed the idea of bending the organization to the whims of "popular culture."

They don't have to renounce their values to admit gays into their ranks; rather their values would be greater for doing so.. As homophobic as I ever heard it..

Perry provides a good example of why the Republican party is discouraging its members from commenting on social issues. They are constantly shooting themselves in the foot by disparaging any group that doesn't look just like themselves.

My dear gov, please remember how far your warped views got you in the last election... have you learned nothing? Would a little silence on your part really be that hard?

I agree. But there ARE gay Republicans (I'm a Libertarian, REMEMBER !!!), and there ARE gay Boy Scouts (I was one of them too.:)).

Oh, yes, I remember the day Little Ricky Perry took the Boy Scout Oath, promising three things:

On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To ... to ... uh, wait a minute ... and to ... Oops!

Yes Honey, we know you only support losers. That's a good part of why you are where in your life.

Certainly not something to envy.

I travelled thru Texas on my way to the southwest and it was the HOTTEST weather I ever experienced. I've been living in Arizona for more than a year now, spending all of the past summer here, and it wasn't bad at all. Certainly no worse than a summer in New York as far as the temperature is concerned. And any additional alectrical expense for the air conditioning is more than offset by the lower heating costs in the winter.

And when I'm finished building and furnishing my undergorund home here, the ground temperature stays a constant 62 degrees all thru the year, so there will be no need for air conditioning at all, and any fuel used will be almost exclusively used for cooking and hot water.

The only thing above ground really will be some ventilation pipes, the mailbox and the 4 corner gun turrets. Other than that, it will look like any other part of the surrounding desert landscape.

pRick Perry would throw Jesus from the temple. Jesus taught love and that we are one so he was far too liberal for these so-called christians of the far right. Perry should get a liberal education and rid himself of his tin hat and stop drinking the repugs kool-aid. Go on an acid trip and see some new ideas in techno-colour.
How many children are starving in Texas? How many women have been cut off from health care, pRickly??? Those questions will come back to haunt you, and your fellow vile filth in the RGA.(Soon).
