Ryan & Boy Scouts: A Perfect Storm of Intolerance

On August 9th Eddie Munster will return to Racine as keynote speaker for the 2011 Leadership Lunch Racine at the Roma Lodge.

The event is being sponsored by NORCO and as a result of their generosity, there is no cost to attend.

NORCO and it's President, David Eberle have given thousands of dollars to Ryan. Their political contributions to Wisconsin Republicans reads like the state party roster, naturally including Mac, Wanny and little Robin.

So it's only fitting if they were to host an all expenses paid lunch they would do it at Mt. Pleasant's Roma Lodge. The Roma Lodge for kittens outside the Root environs is a private clubhouse for Italians complete with it's own indoor bocci ball lanes. Many a wedding reception has been laid to waste in their banquet rooms and if you like heart-burn inducing red sauce made by the vat - it's heaven.

A known, but little discussed fact about the Roma Lodge is that woman cannot join. Can. Not. Join. Your Irish husband can join and extend his membership to his wife, but if you are a Napoli-born daughter of Italy without a penis partner - you are shit out of luck. And if your husband should die...well the both of you will be missed.

Why in 2011 the women of the Roma Lodge don't rise up and tell these goombah's to "va a farti fottere!" is beyond belief.

Then there is the subject of the Leadership Lunch, the U.S. Boy Scouts.

The Siren wants so much to love the Boy Scouts and their little gay uniforms, but why?...why must there be the hate for the gays?! From the Boy Scouts policy handbook:
"Boy Scouts of America believes that homosexual conduct is inconsistent with the obligations in the Scout Oath and Scout Law to be morally straight and clean in thought, word, and deed."
As funny, sexy, brainy, Dan Savage would say: EVOLVE ALREADY!

So we have here is what can only be described as a perfect storm of intolerance and political influence. Sigh. If you would like to attend please RSVP by August 4th to Tom Turpin at tom.turpin@scouting.org

Be sure to wear your former Boy Scout pride, women's equality, save medicare, union thug t-shirt.
