  1. Terry says:

    Doesn’t Career Politician Scott Walker know that the Boy Scouts allow gays now? But Walker hates gays and hates gay people having basic civil rights! Why would he meet with this far left wing liberal group? Something is amiss. Perhaps it’s Walker’s brain, his conscience or his core convictions? I’d guess all three.
