The one most vocal against the move?
The Girl Scouts!
Obviously? The Boy Scouts are literally trying to take membership (customers) away from the Girl Scouts. Of course they'd be against it.

Or they're trying to get into the scout cookie business, which is the Girl Scouts turf.

The Girl Scouts use only two commercial bakeries for their cookies each year. The Times estimates the cookies generate $800 million in revenues for the Scouts and those bakeries. About 25-30% of those revenues go to the bakeries and distributors.

Just bringing in girls wouldn't really be able to touch that business. Girl Scout cookies are a brand that runs itself.

Especially when for so many years/decades the Boy Scouts thought that crappy cans of stale popcorn was a way to battle Girl Scout Cookies.

Cops in Dubai Are Getting Real, Very Dangerous
Looking Hoverbikes:


"Police in Dubai may soon have access to functional hoverbikes, according to AutoBlog,
which reported that Dubai Police had unveiled the new technology in conjunction with
Russian company Hoversurf at the Gulf Information Technology Exposition last week.

Per Autoblog, the Scorpion hoverbike is capable of flying approximately 16 feet (five
meters) in the air, moving at a speed of 43 miles per hour (70 kilometers per hour) and
carrying 660 pounds (300 kilograms) of gear. It’s thus capable of clearing traffic-packed
roads, but one serious drawback is the unit’s limited, 25 minute charge capacity. The
Scorpion’s rotor blades also look ready to chop through anything it might bump into, like
humans, and sort of looks like it is as dangerous for the operator to fly as for anyone
who might wander into its path."

Would pole dancing be a summer or winter sport?

I am pretty sure the US military has some hover concepts back in the 1950s and 1960s that were like this...and a lot of them worked. But were scraped due to the glaring problem....they are too dangerous to the user and those around them.

That or they were too loud and defeated the purpose (there was a hover stage for officers, but the ducted fan was so loud that the officer couldn't give speeches, and could be seen and heard from anywhere on the battlefield if used in combat.

From what I've read, Kelly's interpretation of the Civil War is pretty standard fare at the US military academies.

Compromise, lol. He keeps saying weird crap one after another when he appears on tv.

Well, to be fair Kelly himself was never claiming to be the so called "moral voice" in the white house. The press does that on their own, now they have to suck it and just damn accept all the people in Trump administration are morally bankrupt. Same deal with Ivanka Trump, which press also did the same weirdly as hell.

Have you ever talked to an educated Southerner or Texan about the causes of that war and why they think it happened. I am not talked the Podunk hillbilly or rednecks here, I'm talking college educated people, computer programmers, and the like. Oh things get really interesting in those conversations.
