    Boy Scouts to Accept Girls

    Not sure how I feel about this one. Granted the existing Girl Scouts are a joke by comparison to the Boy Scouts, but I am not sure about the logistics of co-ed camping for children going through puberty.

    I went through the Boy Scouts myself, mostly on the Air Force Base we were living on. But finished up in a mormon troop where I got my eagle. Both my brothers, may father and his brothers all were eagle scouts as well.

    i was in scouts when i was young , spent half our time talking about the hot little chicks at school. a couple of the boys felt left out because their dad was the troop leader. all in all it was a worthy cause till Rex ruined it. the attack on white herosexual men continues .

    Perhaps they're trying to attract heterosexual scout leaders...

    If you think the girl scouts is even comparable to the boy scouts in what it offers the youth of this nation... well maybe Glen is right

    Like I said in a different thread.

    Someone much smarter than myself once said if an organization isn't actively promoting Conservatism and fighting "progressivism" they will move left. It needs to be fought every day or it wears you out and creeps in like a cancer.

    It eventually takes over and destroys its host. Liberalism destroys almost everything it touches.

    Look at the newest organizations they are actively and ferociously going after. The NFL, ESPN and now The Boy Scouts.

    Did I say they were comparable ??? NOPE

    I dont know anything about either organization.... that is why I axed the question.

    Both seem to be fairly popular among children......

    The "liberalism is a disease" and "liberalism destroys everything" mantra constantly spewed here in ARP is not constructive and is itself destructive of communication between Americans

    Do you have anything insightful or humorous to add to the discussion Brian?

    In the boy scouts you are taught survival skills, first aid, get to go camping hiking etc

    In the girl scouts you get to sell cookies... and learn a fraction of the skills in the boy scouts

    Its called Boy Scouts for a reason.

    Its called Girl Scouts for a reason.

    Only unreasonable idiots would mix the two up.
