A new release read, "The Boy Scouts could easily add another attribute to the scout law: resiliency." In other words... the Boy Scouts are America's new Cockroach. "'People have died, we've had storms and we've had heat and the elements,' said will Jackson, 13, of Highland Park." And yet they won't go home...
I don't know how many of you watch the news. I wouldn't except I only have two channels on our tv and I kinda have to take what I can get. So, I watch the news. I don't know how many of you have noticed, but the Boy Scouts have been having a rough summer. ok, they're dropping like flies. no disrespect is meant to any of those who have tragically died or to their grieving families, but i can't leave this alone any longer...
First can I just say, this whole thing makes me think of Lord of the Flies, which creeps the hell outa me.
You all should know something about this, starting with the tent and the power line fiasco. Like I said, it's very very sad, but... it's not like we had the knitters of America putting up a tent, these were scout leaders that should be pro at stuff like this! The irony is agonizing! That's when I first decided something bigger has to be happening, God is pissed at these guys and I say stay away from the whole lot.
Bush did, didn't he? Even he knew something was up when boys started dropping like flies from the heat. He clearly saw this wasn't the brightest bunch of berries and that there was some greater force out to destroy them before they could reproduce. Isn't Their motto something like "Be prepared." We don't hear about hundreds going down from heat at any other conventions... at least the knitters brought water, even if knitting is dumb... but that's another blog.
And then, there was the tree. This is very very sad, but a tree just fell on this girls head yesterday at a Boy Scout first aid thing. There's also been deaths by being struck by lightning and several drownings. I think that this organization is a death trap for children and if you are a member it's only a matter of time.
One article was kind enough to provide this timeline, and it will be with this that I close... and please my friends, if you have little boys just say no to Boy Scouts.
