Gays & Boy Scouts

The Boy Scouts of America have come out and said that they will NOT allow gays. They don’t allow gay troop leaders or gay boy scouts. Do they have a right to discriminate? Yes, because they are a private organization. I think with recent events such as the catholic church and Penn State where boys have been “touched” or mistreated people are more cautious. No one wants a scandal like that. Though I still believe that if a boy wants to be a scout he should be able to. Having to hide who you are sucks. For me, (I’m a girl) I hate camping. This isn’t any issue that affects me, but I like to see how others feel about it. Leave a comment.

The Great Divide In America

I was listening to NPR this morning. Yes, I’m 20 and really enjoy NPR. It’s just as informative as reading the paper. Anyways, they were talking about politics ( I hate politics as everyone knows.) This morning they were talking about Romney and Obama in comparison on a few issues. Romney says that Obama hasn’t done anything moneywise for America. This is where all I could think about is THE GREAT DIVIDE.  The rich get richer, the poorer get more poor. the republicans are strong on their beliefs and the democrats are strong on their beliefs. No one is willing to give a little. Some fear losing their job, losing their sponsors, losing their funding. THIS GREAT DIVIDE NEEDS A COMPROMISE.  Does no one else see how far apart politicians seem to be on EVERYTHING… Will anything get done? Will anyone solve at least one problem? I guess we’ll have to hold tight and see.
