If the Boy Scouts agree to gay scouts camping with other boys, they should sleep in separate tents. Otherwise it would be like a Boy Scout sleeping with a Girl Scout. Nothing may happen but the unwanted sexual attraction could be an issue in some cases.

… (A local TV station) is the king of infomercials. I can't believe this would make their ratings go up. Bring back “Gunsmoke” and good programming.

Obamacare, background check gun control and the next up immigration reform are the size of multiple novels to read. Why must they add so much text to something that our senators and all of us need to understand instead of us having to find out the hard way?

How many times must homeowners (i.e., taxpayers) be forced to scramble to elevate their belongings, to only once again face the massive cleanup and heartache that flooding causes? Surely the intelligent city engineers can find a solution. These homeowners deserve and demand action now.

Why do white supremacists have a weird fascination with the Confederacy and Nazis? Don't these intellectual lightweights know that these groups no longer hold power because they lost wars?
