Just another of my failed attempts at levity, I guess. :shrug:

The Girl Scouts appear to be gaining some members since the acceptance of girls in the Cub Scouts program.  Maybe SOME good will come of all this.....

not sure the 'be prepared' thing included being ready to deal with  peaderasty.  Especially from a 'trusted leader'.   Issuing a good Buck knife would seem to be more in the way of being prepared.

Dave raised the bar here.  7 inch blade of ATS 34 steel.  Razor sharp.  Bocote wood handle.   I love it.
Hoping it won't rain this weekend,  so I can go fishing and try it out.

I realize that WND is not the most reliable of news sources,  but they,  like all blind squirrels, finds a nut now and then.

The Boy Scouts have decided to accept people who identify as gay and lesbian among their ranks. And girls are welcome now, too, into the iconic organization, which has renamed itself Scouts BSA.

So what?s next?

A mandate that condoms be made available to ?all participants? of its global gathering.

It?s among the demands of the World Scout Committee for any host country of a World Scout Jamboree.

That would include the 24th World Scout Jamboree, scheduled July 21-Aug. 1, 2019, in West Virginia.

  If the story is factual the organization is in a lot more trouble than just the question of Coed Scouts,  it's an all encompassing policy that flies in the face of the BSA's long standing Motto which clearly defines what Scouting was supposed to instill in the character of boys and young men.
  Personally I've drifted back and forth between being angry and being understanding of the need to be inclusive,  while I may not agree with the changes in the organization I'm not without compassion for the young people who are different when it comes to gender, religion, or sexual orientation, this world is crazy enough for adults to try to understand, it's got to be doubly hard for kids to try to figure out where they fit into it.
  My fear is that there's more to these changes than just inclusiveness,  with every new story that breaks concerning the organization and it's ever changing progressive policy changes over time on Faith, gender, sexual orientation, gay leaders, and now passing out condoms and suggesting alcohol may be present at the gathering,  this is starting to look like an agenda is being pushed to destroy another venue that teaches pride in ones creator, country, moral character, and ones self,  It's happening in our town halls, our schools, and now in some of our greatest institutions.
  I believe we've reached our prime and are now beginning our backwards slide to self destruction,  it was a great ride while it lasted. 

QUOTE FROM MOE:
"If the story is factual the organization is in a lot more trouble than just the question of Coed Scouts,  it's an all encompassing policy that flies in the face of the BSA's long standing MOTTO which clearly defines what Scouting was supposed to instill in the character of boys and young men."

SCOUT MOTTO:
In English, this MOTTO is most commonly BE PREPARED. In the third part of Scouting for Boys Robert Baden-Powell explains the meaning of the phrase: The Scout Motto is: BE PREPARED which means you are always in a state of readiness in mind and body to do your DUTY.

OBSERVATION FROM WOLFY:
Since the Scout MOTTO is "BE PREPARED," I find the issuance of the new Official Scout Rubber as just another venue for being fully prepared! :cheers: :lol:

I agree.  The pendulum won't swing back.

:lol: Me, too! I'll have 2 chocolate covered, cream filled Bismarks to go, please!

But if anyone is interested in researching the topic of this "gifting", you find photos of stainless steel bowls (sans the aforementioned treats) with fingerprints on them.
The prints (in all legitimate cases) are unique in that the dermal ridges run perpendicular to the length of the print, rather than whorls, tents and arches as humans have.
