Scout parade? We're disrupting our world so these homophobic little fascists can display themselves?

Better watch out, jckdoors, you might have your ass handed to you by a nine year old.

Seriously, how do you even type with such a limp wrist?

I have lived 6 blocks from East Falls Church for 11 years. I have utilized the “service” for years. Recently, the quality of the “service” has decayed to the point that I will be driving to work from now on…even though I am given a monthly allotment to ride Metro in lieu of driving. I will give it up, gladly. Over the last series of months…Metro service has decayed to the point where MY TIME and HEALTH are at risk.

The Federal Government is being defrauded by this transit system. I PAID $1.95 to EXIT Rosslyn Metro station…when I NEVER ROAD THE TRAIN! I left the station Friday because of the dangerously crowded platform for the West-bound train at 4:35 pm. One train went through the station and DID NOT OPEN ITS doors. Another came through with a disabled car…with no doors opening…

Seriously…I road a bus home and vowed to NEVER BE AT THE MERCY of this system AGAIN! The train operators blew their whistles soooooo loudly because the platform was SOOOOOOO crowded. NO METRO EMPLOYEES WERE IN SIGHT!

ALSO, I always check the metro website before I leave to determine if there is a problem. They either LIE or have a totally inaccurate system…

jckdoors --

Do you ever stop to think about how many of your buddies would be alive today if they had learned a little from groups like the Boy Scouts? When will you realize that your buddies are dead because they threw their lives away over getting their jollies?

Boy Scouts do more good for society than most know. The problem for you is that they call your perversion for what it really is, and despite you being so full of yourselves you really don't have spine enough for the criticism.\

Grow up.

Pay no attention to jckdoors (the terrorist troll). He's the kind of person who would slather himself in peanut butter, creep onto a playground, and then sue for discrimination when the little children don't lick him.
