Well, the “progressive “ liberals are at it again. The executive maroons of the Boy Scouts will allow girls to join, so they can have access to being an Eagle Scout. Hogwash! It is just another attempt to water down one of the best organizations ever by blurring the distinctions between females and males. The Girl Scouts of America have every right to be very irate. It is a backhanded slap that the GSA isn’t good enough.
In addition, activists have been attacking the BSA for decades. Now we have some pundits questioning its validity and importance. Lets take a look:
BSA motto — Be prepared
BSA oath — 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 people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
BSA laws — A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
Seems to me Americans should be getting back to these principles instead of I, I, I, me, me, me. I might add we need more common sense, common decency, and class. There is way too much negativity in America today. We are better than that.
