Berkeley is denying the Sea Scouts' their Equal Protection rights by charging them a fee that isn't charged to other non-profit organizations at its Marina. It is violating their First Amendment rights because it imposes that selective fee on the Sea Scouts because of their exercise of fee association and free speech rights by belonging to the Boy Scouts.

Berkeley is charging them a fee because they are Boy Scouts and Boy Scouts aren't politically correct. Other nonprofits get free use, so this is discrimination based on ideology. Unfair. Unconstitutional. Unfreakin unbelievable that the Cal SUpreme Court would say this is OK.

The sauce for a goose is the sauce for a gander. Per USSC, there is no inherent right to the taxpayer money, be it federal funds for the universities or a rent subsidy at the marina. Those who do not like the attached strings should not take the money, and then they could exercise their Constitutional rights to their hearts' content.

The good old USA isn't nearly as good as it once was.

Do you ever wonder what the Lord thinks of what we've done to this once great blessing He entrusted to us? I do and then I shudder.
