    Founded by a fascist, run by homophobes. I was a Scout for about a week, till I had to eat chicken cooked by other children while camping. So pink and bloody, it haunts me still. Nobody cares, it's a relic of the past and it won't last too much longer. They are already clear cutting half the lands they have been given because there's so little other revenue coming in. The kids are better off playing video games, no kid of mine is wearing short pants and brown shirts.

      Do you even HAVE kids?  I hope not.

      •  well -- I DO have kids (4+ / 0-)

        and though they are girls and i would have no problem with them attending Girl Scouts if that was their thing -- the Girl Scouts not being associated in ANY way with the BSA ...

        but -- if they were boys -- attending institutionalized homophobic religionist bigot 'camp' -- hell yeah, i would prefer they play video games rather than attend the indoctrination ceremonies of the militaristic fetishists ...

        but again, we are atheists -- so they wouldn't let us join up after all ...

          on the insidious electronic entertainment ... I have a 25 year old neice who hasn't left her mother's basement in the last five years!

            The kid's not even particularly depressed.  She's just slacking, because she can. But her appetite for gaming is basically endless, and it certainly presents as addiction-like.
