Intel will end support for Oregon Boy Scouts over Scouts' policy on gays
The Oregonian ^ | 11/11/12 | Mike Rogoway

Posted on 11/11/2012 2:28:10 PM PST by aimhigh

Boy Scouts in Oregon have few benefactors more generous than Intel, which has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars to Boy Scout troops and Cub Scout packs over the past few years. . .

The donations, though, are now drying up. They're a casualty of a change in Intel's requirements -- which attaches a nondiscrimination pledge to the donation.

Just like JC Penny, it's a good time to short Intel.

And since when did Intel corporation become a supporter? Something I thought alone should be bothersome.

Just disgusting. No organization does more for boys and young men than Scouts. If there were queer leaders or scouts, my son would have gone nowhere near the organization.

Are there any computers that don’t have Intel parts in them? Or even mobile devices? That’s the disturbing part. It almost seems like computers and electronics have become a monopoly, or an oligopoly, where you essentially can’t do much more than support liberalism by simply buying a computer.

Apple
relies on Intel processors for its notebook and
desktop computers, and ARM-based designs for
its booming smartphone and tablet products — leading some to fret that Apple could one day
switch to ARM-based chips for the Mac.

I’m hoping intel is eventually dropped from the Mac.
Intel wants inside the iPad.

Is Intel supporting any gay groups or organizations that are not inclusive to heterosexual people?

If so, time to call them out publically.

They really want the whole world to become homosexuals. Not much of a future, though.

I am sick to death of these homosexuals trying to force the rest of us to accept them. Take me back to the 50s!!!

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/11/11/Obama-Won-t-Fight-For-Gay-Marriage-His-Second-Term

” On Friday, Obama told an MTV audience that he would not fight for gay marriage his second term, intoning that “it would be up to future generations of Americans to implement meaningful reform.”

Here’s the kicker; realizing that some states are now endorsing gay marriage, Obama suddenly became a champion of states’ rights, asserting, “For us to try to legislate federally into this area is probably the wrong way to go.”

When the states endorse Obama’s positions, he’s a states’ rights guy. When they don’t, he runs roughshod over them with the federal government.

Obama continued on Friday:

First of all, I’ve been very clear about my belief that same-sex couples have to be treated before the eyes of the law the same way as heterosexual couples. I think that’s the right thing to do. It’s based on my personal experience, seeing loving couples who are committed to each other, raising kids and are just outstanding people. And I was supportive of civil unions, but they taught me, if you’re using different words, if you’re somehow singling them out, they don’t feel true equality”

Well this is interesting. I'm in the position of finally wanting to build myself a new pc (this one's 8 years old) and have priced out two pc's. The first is an Intel IvyBridge CPU, @3.6GHz, MotherBoard, 32GB of memory, etc.. Cost: $597 (not counting case, power supply, DVD, etc..)

The second is an AMD FM4100 UNLOCKED @ 3.6Ghz with 32GB of memory, motherboard, etc.. (no case, power supply or DVD.) Cost $349.

Now that I know Intel's supporting the homosexual's, I'm buying AMD and saving myself the $230 bucks. I am NOT spending my money with companies that work against my views and interests.

In all truth, I imagine a lot of corporations are going to suddenly take a “principled stand” to discontinue charitable giving. The economic reality is that just about everyone is now anticipating a huge downturn, so charity just doesn’t cut it anymore.

And some of the first to get hit in a major downturn will be the electronics industry. Many of them are hoping against home to get a Government Motors deal.

This years’ black Friday is going to be very interesting indeed. I anticipate that luxury goods are going to take a huge hit, with very scant sales. There will be pretty average sales of durable goods. Best sales will be of very utilitarian items.

This will be a good gauge of the public mood.

Boy Scouts should just stop taking money and services from companies and organizations like this. All their doing is providing them with opportunities for public service announcements.

I’ll be putting in a sell order on my 200 shares of Intel tomorrow morning. These funds will go to my favorite coin dealer in exchange for 1 oz gold krugerrands. And as for J C Penny and their ongoing relationship with lesbian human toilet ellen degenerate, my wife and I long ago stopped shopping there.

Given the experience of the Catholic Church and Penn State with adult male homosexuals and young boys, any person who still pushes for the Boy Scouts to allow adult male homosexuals anywhere them deserves to be hanged.

“There’s no relationship between being gay and being a pedophile.”

As a well-informed, 21st century, enlightened and progressive citizen, I have had empathetic relationships with people of diverse sexualities. Contrary to the negative stereotypes, many gay and lesbian folks are not leading secretive and miserable lives at all. They’re very open about their experiences.

A striking number of gay male writers reveal youthful encounters with older men with whom they had their first sexual experiences. Often with a trusted mentor figure: a teacher or tutor, a youth minister, a counselor or choir director, sports trainer, coach.

Sometimes tender and touching. Sometimes sheer sexual adventurism. And always statutory rape.

The gay movement denies this. Deny, deny, deny. Strange, especially when so many others in the gay scene are celebrating it.

“This will be a good gauge of public mood.”

It’ll take a while before the Obama “chickensssss” come home to roost. This year, it’s cakes and circuses” all round . . with plenty of Monopoly money for hair and nail salons and what have you. For now, ol’ Baracka Claus is sitting in the big golden chair with all the little kiddies on his skinny Santa lap, asking each and every one of them what they want for “X(Christ not allowed)-mas”.

I think it’s more important to pause and look to see why the Boy Scouts might have any need for corporate dollars, and the associated pressures that come from those dollars.

The professional BSA administration that has infested virtually every council level office needs to be cut off at the knees and sent packing. They will represent the ultimate death of the BSA, as to support this ever expanding cadre of professional scouts, more and more money must be poured in from corporate sources to sustain it. None of these people contributes to the scouting experience in the slightest way.

They are the ultimate parasite that will ride the host until they’ve bled every resource dry.

I was a Boy Scout once,my son was a scout,I am a man now, and I would rather see the Boy Scouts Organisation die, than become a haven for queers and pedophiles.

On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.

I doubt he is going to be as generous to them as he was in his first term, precisely because “What have you done for me lately?”

In other words, the end of the gravy train. Now it is time for pure agenda. Various socialist and national socialist models, most of which any objective person knows don’t work, but it doesn’t matter because they are articles of faith with them.

As with Hitler, once he was set in power, he no longer needed to pound the campaign trail.
