    I am rapidly becoming a fiscal conservative, I really think this country is fucked if we don't get the piggy bank in order.

    I don't see how a conservative can support things like government money going to boy scouts.

    I would go out on a limb and say it is probably time we cut way back on our international aid too since someone brought it up.

    Bryan, if you are really a conservative, it comes off as massively hypocritical for you to thing a non-essential group like Boy Scouts is deserving of any funding just because you have an emotional attachment.

    All those guys in Congress that have a little attachment to some program like Boy Scouts is a big part of the reason the country is so fucked financially. You say $2 million for boy scouts here is no big deal, someone else wants a few million somewhere else, next thing you know the country is $500 billion in debt.

    Bush is FINALLY waking up to the reality of this, it is about 4 years too late though!

    It sure comes off as "I don't want my kids being exposed to people who are gay".

    Wouldn't have it sounded much better to say "I don't want my kids to be around people who push their agendas on impressionable youth. "?

    FWIW, I'm not of the opinion the homosexual men are more likely to be predatory to young boys. That's not my case. What I'm saying is that these days the youth of America is inundated with all kinds of stuff to absorb, and it's getting worse everyday. There is plenty of time when they can learn all about homosexuality. Why push it on them at such a young age? If a scout master has homosexual sex in his home, without the need to go out and announce to everyone that he's gay and everyone has to accept that, fine with me. I would feel the same about a scoutmaster who participates in group-sex or s&m.

    It's funny to me how the gay-rights started out as a group that wanted to get the gov't out of the bedroom, now they want them back in.

    Actually I heard some info on NPR (of all places) a few days ago that actually downplayed the deficit. The report went on to say that the deficit was actually larger under Reagan, it's just that the economy is much bigger now.
