    Boy Scouts Will Admit Girls

    Our Cub Scout pack is going the “family scouting” path in the fall. Idk if we will get a response to it or not in our small community. When I first read the article about this on Scouting Wire a while back, it was clear to me this was about one thing- boosting declining numbers & not so much a PC move.

    My entirety of thought on this can be summed up by episode of the Brady Bunch where Marsha joins the Frontier Scouts.

    You can ask and I'm not offended but it's a very long story I'm not comfortable discussing.
    My New Year's resolution for 2019 is this year I'm not going to drink anymore. I'm not going to drink any less, either.

    I was married for 25 years, but if I'd killed her on the honeymoon, I'd have been out in less than 20.

    Couldn't care less.

    BSA membership has been rapidly declining for years for a variety of reasons - it was this or watch it wither and die completely.

    IMO it's really more of a reflection of a society that has lost touch with nature and is more happy living in the suburbs staring at a screen than anything else.

    Just scanned this pic of me back when we lived in Norfolk. That stereo behind me is a Zenith....an upgrade from the smaller Capehart we started with. My Dad loved to listen to his records....

    Trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous and kind. Brave clean and reverent. Not a bad memory from 50 odd years ago.

    Pretty how much I feel. It doesn’t effect me at all so I don’t care. I was a Scout for about three years as a kid and hated it. I wouldn’t be surprised if they shut down completely by the middle of the century.

    I also agree it reflects a shift away from traditional Scouting activities. Which is fine with me as I don’t care if people play video games and don’t go camping.

    A friend added me to her joke site. Some of the jokes are funny; some are crude and tasteless. The worst of all was today - a pic of a pretty 14-year old girl with the subtitle "Camping in the woods was fun. Now, I'm going to be a mommy." I recorded a sour comment that it might have been funny but some jerk stealing the face of a real child for a cheap laugh was way over the line, so far as I'm concerned. It's OK it they want to pitch me off...

    Good for you, Earle.

    I really don't understand why our value system has deteriorated so badly.

    Cursing in movies and TV. Crude "jokes".

    We've been on a slide since the 60's.....sad and disgusting for me.

    We're no longer shocked.


    I've always said Trump is an EFFECT, he's not a CAUSE.

    We had a recording of a man running for President talking locker room talk about them womens. The next step in the parade is a politician being caught on Hi Def video with an underage girl.

    It. WILL. Happen.

    Mark my words.
