    Boy Scouts Of America Ends Ban On Gay Scout Leaders

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Gay adults may soon serve as scout leaders across the country.
    In a unanimous vote, the Boy Scouts of America’sexecutive committee approved a resolution to end the group’s ban on gay adult leaders.
    The ban has created a major division within the 105-year-old organization.
    Philadelphia’s Boy Scouts council approved a similar resolution last month.

    As a private entity the BSA should do as it wishes not be pushed to it by the government. Too often we see inclusion with a cost of intrusion. When the courts ruled for the BSA I thought they made the correct decision. When the BSA made this announcement I thought that the BSA made the right decision.
    More important, the economics of ObamaCare reward scale over competition. Benefits are standardized and premiums are de facto price-controlled. With margins compressed to commodity levels, buying more consumers via mergers is simpler than appealing to them with better products, to the extent the latter is still legal.

    They apparently didn't like their other choice - give up federal money.

    They're done. New organizations have been springing up to replace them for some time now.

    Sad day as hell.




    Save the whales. Collect the entire set!

    Save the Republican Party, Kill a RINO! I am pro choice.
    I will not vote for a RINO in 2016.
    I will vote for a DINO for sure.
