Re: Scouts…..BSA is a private organization which has morphed from a broad-based community group to a recruiting tool for various sponsoring religions. In Las Vegas, from which I fled, almost 50% of the Cub and Boy Scout troops are sponsored by LDS Stakes. The Catholic Church sponsors a number as well. They are a private organization entitled to their own standards. I can’t see, however, why they should be eligible for tax-exempt status and use of public facilities.

Gee, that’s just how I feel about, People for the American Way, and the like.


… (three I can’t remember – Thrifty, perhaps?)


That’s from the early 70s. Reverent was probably part of those 12 things well before that.

I’d argue that it’s society that has ‘morphed’, and Scouting is adhering to principle.

Court House Shooting Of The Day(TM)

“A man opened fire at a Delaware courthouse on Monday, killing two women and wounding two [police officers] before he was fatally shot, officials said.”

@3 I don’t have a problem with active-duty Navy Seals having guns, and I doubt anyone else does, so what’s your point?

6. Serial conservative spews:

Hows about an actual full post and discussion about targeted assassinations of American citizens without due process, rather, than just a link to a cartoon?

DOJ kill list memo forces many Dems out of the closet as overtly unprincipled hacks

Or would that be a little too uncomfortable?

Personally, I’m OK with it. It’s one of the things I expect a president to do, quietly, and preferably without press oversight. (I want him on that wall. I need him on that wall.)

I just wish the playing field were level. Tina Brown makes an excellent point. When Bush was president we had NYT exposing SWIFT. Now that Obama is president, we have the media keeping its mouth shut if requested to do so by the White House.

Kudos to Greenwald for sticking to his principles.

7. Ten Years After spews:

The Pope is to resign by the end of the month. Funny how the resignation coincides with the HBO documentary about pedophile priests and his role in the decades-old Catholic coverup!

8. Gman spews:

Republican Congressman invites Ted Nugent to State of the Union Address. What a piece of shit! Republicans – Scum of the earth.

9. Steve spews:

“Gun. control.”

Would you be so coy after posting a description of what all of those bullets did to the little children of Newtown?

A friend of mine was murdered last summer, Bob, the last of five victims of the Capital Hill murderer, shot in the head point blank by a mad man with a gun. Would you care to post a description of what that bullet did to her and make a crack about it?

Too bad you can’t delete your post. I’m sure if you think about it, you’ll realize that it was in very bad taste.

10. Gman spews:

@9 – They guy is demented. The world isn’t safe because of nut jobs like him.

11. Czechsaaz spews:


It’s always fun watching people complain about the libr’l media.

It’s not as if the story wasn’t broken by NBC and then commented negatively upon by a whole slew of “commie” MSNBC hosts. Clearly left media types are silent the troubling notion that citizens can be killed without trial and there;s no chance any libr’l media printed op-eds that such a thing might be necessary under a different administration…

I mean, for your outraged comparison to be even slightly reasonable, not a single liberal news outlet or blog could have been critical of the killing of al-Alwaki at the time. I’ll let you google that yourself, the results are in the millions.

And while twisting your fake outrage, how does impeachment work? Which party controls the chamber that would need to pass a bill to impeach? What was your point?

12. Czechsaaz spews:


i like Ted in the Same way I like the Busey. Long after his career hit the shitter he’s found a way to make money by being a professional buffoon. Difference is, Busey has an Oscar Nomination while Nugent has zero top 20 hits and even his ‘fans’ on the right must put him on and realize that he’s a mediocre guitarist at best. (Oh, but aren’t we supposed to shut up and sing?)

13. Serial conservative spews:

@ 12

Cat Scratch Fever didn’t make Top 20?

Granted, it shouldn’t have, but Justin Bieber.

14. Czechsaaz spews:


Cat Scratch topped out in the US at #30.

Gotta admit though, inviting a guy who suggested a president “suck on my machine gun.” and made a threat that the secret service took seriously enough to interview him seems like a really bad idea. Like inviting Brent Bozell to be your guest at the Emmys. Pope Benedict to sit at your table at at a NOW convention.

15. Serial conservative spews:

@ 9

No interest in deleting my post, Steve. I’m sorry about your friend’s death, but I have little patience for your conflation of my response to killing of a guy who was supremely responsible for thousands of deaths, just in this country, with what my response should be to the killing of someone you knew. Suppose I had called out the celebration on HA of Andrew Breitbart’s death because I know someone who died of a sudden heart attack, too. Would that have made any sense? What would have been the response of HA libbies had I done so?

There was a fair amount of snark about the manner of the death of American Sniper a week ago, on HA. All’s fair on the Internet, Steve.

Oh, and it’s an Open Thread.

16. Roger Rabbit spews:

@8 They should seat him within shoe-throwing range of the podium, so we can find out whether Nugent is a man with courage of his convictions or just an empty gasbag. I’m willing to make book on the latter.

17. Serial conservative spews:

@ 16

No one knows more about empty gas-bagginess than you do, RR.

Except perhaps Mrs. Rabbit, who has to put up with you in real life.

18. Roger Rabbit spews:

@13 One hit wonder. World’s full of ‘em. The smart ones get married and quietly raise kids. The rest spend the rest of their lives dreaming up increasingly ludicrous ways of drawing attention to themselves. Reassuring the fleabaggers you’d like to shoot the president (with no intention of doing so) isn’t original. Carnival barkers began using that line before the ink was dry on the Constitution. But then, nothing these people do is.

19. Roger Rabbit spews:

@17 You call me a gasbag? Toooo funny!

20. Serial conservative spews:

@ 19

100,000+ posts don’t lie.

21. Roger Rabbit spews:

@14 I assume they’ll frisk him at the door. If he does something disruptive, like yelling insults while the president is speaking, security should throw out his host along with him. But I don’t think this empty suit will do anything like that. He doesn’t have the balls. I think he’ll sit there quietly and frown and not applaud and that’ll be it. Remember this is a guy who, in his prime, dodged the draft. He’s not exactly an Alexander the Great or a Tamerlane or a Pershing. More like Andy Devine’s sidekick Froggy — makes a lot of incomprehensible noise and then disappears in a cloud of smoke when the shit hits the fan.

22. Roger Rabbit spews:

@20 The concept of “gasbag” has to do with content not quantity.

23. Roger Rabbit spews:

Obama invited a new Medal of Honor winner. A Republican congressman invited Ted Nugent. I think they should seat these two guests together so the TV audience can readily see the contrast between people Democrats hold up as heroes and people Republicans hold up as heroes.

24. Serial conservative spews:

@ 22

That’s like the guy with a 3″ erection claiming “It’s not the meat, it’s the motion.”

Keep digging.

25. Steve spews:

“I have little patience for your conflation of my response to killing of a guy who was supremely responsible for thousands of deaths, just in this country, with what my response should be to the killing of someone you knew.”

First, I couldn’t possibly care less about your lack of patience. Better for you to hope that I don’t ever run out of patience. There’s actually fucking consequences when that happens.

First a graphic description and then “Gun. control”. So WTF was the point of your post, this “response” of yours? Connect the dots for us, Bob.

It was pointless and what’s even worse, weak.

26. Serial conservative spews:

Apparently it was just to piss you off, Steve.

Really, though. If I didn’t see a need to apologize for noting how much Obama’s older daughter looks like a boy, nor for calling a teenage kid with a history of trouble with the law and a penchant for violence a ‘thug-in-training’, do you really think I’m going to back off for snarking about OBL’s death because it got your panties in a twist?

Glad to see you’re back to threats of violence. Godwin can’t be too far behind.

27. MikeBoyScout spews:

Serial Reneger – still posting wingnut talking points, still months past due on the bet he lost.


28. Steve spews:

“Apparently it was just to piss you off, Steve.”

Then it was a failure on your part.

“Glad to see you’re back to threats of violence.”

Threats? You mean, like, give warning? Um, no, Bob. You really haven’t been around much, have you?

29. Ekim spews:

“threats of violence?”

Dr Scrooge, that is soooo Republican.

30. Gman spews:


There was a fair amount of snark about the manner of the death of American Sniper a week ago, on HA.

What kind of snark was there? You mean to question why his guns didn’t protect him? That is snark about the manner of his death? Give me a break.

31. Roger Rabbit spews:

@26 “how much Obama’s older daughter looks like a boy”

The words “vapid, insipid, sophomoric” immediately come to mind …

32. Roger Rabbit spews:

91 Americans died in gun violence this weekend. Some were our youngest, brightest, and best. How much is an unrestricted and unregulated “right” to have guns worth? IMO not this much.

33. MikeBoyScout spews:

@31 Roger,
He’s got a thing for young boys.

34. Roger Rabbit spews:

@33 That’s a problem.

35. Roger Rabbit spews:

New studies reinforce existing data showing the most important determinant of how well people do economically is who their fathers and grandfathers were.

36. YLB spews:

Bob still pretending he’s got a clue?

Pay your gambling debt and go Galt silly man.

37. MikeBoyScout spews:

@36 YLB,
You remember (understand it’s hard, because the amount of BS he spews) how ‘if Obama won’ he was going to retire, blah, blah, blah?

Like his prediction of a Rmoney win and his betting on it and ‘trust me, I paid’ bullshit, turns out he can’t ‘Go Galt!’

What a HorsesAss

Hey all, if you’ve not yet seen Argo, see it.

2. Dr Scrooge spews:

I’d argue that it’s society that has ‘morphed’, and Scouting is adhering to principle.

There was an interesting program on the BSA and its early years. It aired around the same time the BSA was winning its right to be bigoted in the courts.

The BSA was founded to be an all inclusive group and intended to serve all boys. The organization was never intended to deny membership due to skin color, religious affiliation or sexual orientation. It was not founded to be a haven of bigots as Dr Scrooge seems to think.

The grandson of the BSA was interviewed for the program. He said his grandfather had tried to resist the religious bigots who had managed to take over the leadership of the organization in later years. He unfortunately failed.

41. MikeBoyScout spews:

@40 Ekim,
My moniker says something about the BSA. :-)

The “problem” with today’s BSA is that the practices and principles of the organization have been hijacked by the “religious” sponsors.

I don’t know, because I never asked, but I’m sure an average proportion of my fellow Scouts when I was a boy were homosexual.
Maybe there were parents who were gay.
It never made a difference about what we did and how we did it.

To preserve the intent of Robert Baden-Powell and the honorable traditions of the BSA, it needs to cut the umbilical cord of bigoted religious sponsorship.

ps. The Presbyterian church which sponsored my troop went thru a 3 year struggle with homosexuality, and ultimately, split with its hierarchy and saw the light. We can and will do this, but we need to confront bigotry straight on.

pps. One of my friends and fellow Scout in my Troop was (is?) an Astronaught, having Commanded 2 Space Shuttle Missions.

ppps. The Serial Reneger never would have lasted in my Troop. We had no tolerance for slacking, lazy losers;
“do my duty”.

42. Ten Years After spews:

Please, try not to speak.

43. Roger Rabbit spews:

I agree with this Republican jackass on one point: Here in America, we should allow Republicans to be jackasses, doing so is consistent with our laws and traditions, and he shouldn’t get death threats merely for being a Republican jackass.

44. Ekim spews:

Lawrence O’Donnell had a great bit on the NRA’s enemies list. It seems he is a bit miffed he didn’t make the cut.

But apparently all the attention has caused the NRA to delete the page and now it gives a 404. MSNBC managed to find a test page on the NRA web site with more or less the same content.

Then there is the “Wayback Machine,” AKA the Internet Archive. Great for looking at previous versions of scrubbed web pages. I did a quick search and turned up the Jan 20 version of the (now) 404 page.

I guess I’m curious. What are they afraid of?

45. Roger Rabbit spews:

@40 He’s right, society has morphed; we don’t allow people to own other human beings anymore, and women can vote now. Maybe it’s time for the Boy Scouts to re-examine how they’ve been applying the principles and ideals they teach, and whether there might be better and more inclusive ways of upholding them. There’s nothing wrong with BSA’s principles and ideals in and of themselves, and never was.

46. Roger Rabbit spews:

@44 Wow! That’s quite a list of “anti-gun” organizations. Who would’ve thought so many people are against violence?

Exit question: Only 68%, GOP?

“Apple is sitting on $137M in cash.”


“Overtaxed secretaries were so last year.”
