Granted, I try not to eat a lot of sweets - I have enough problems with weight without that. But every once in a while a box of Thin Mints seems like a good idea, especially when proffered by cute little girls outside the local grocery store. But as of today, no more Girl Scout cookies. And the problem isn't my blood sugar level. It's my blood pressure level after reading Cathy Ruse's "Say No to Girl Scout Cookies".
I hadn't thought about how much of the money goes back to the kids who work so hard to raise it - 10%. Well, I guess that's more than 1 %, so the Occupy folks won't fuss. But 90% goes to the Girl Scout business itself, and that seems like prime Evil Corporation territory so I'm waiting to hear from the Companies Are Bad folks. All those parents who take time out of their days to make sure the girls have their meetings, projects, and sales are all volunteering their time to make sure the bureaucracy gets a regular pay day.
Not having had a little girl in the house for many years, I haven't paid attention. I didn't realize that a decision had been made to let boys who dress as girls in. Bad enough there are parents who encourage gender confusion at a young age - this isn't the same as a tomboy in jeans, but little boys who think they are little girls. No matter what some fool psychologist says, little boys and little girls most definitely have different parts. Not to mention different genetic structures - there's that whole x and y chromosome thing. That's called nature, and those who attack my opinions on this as the rantings of a religious nut can please explain to me how I am scientifically inaccurate when I observe that nature built male and female structures that serve different functions. So little boys with their little boy parts belong in Boy Scouts. If their parents think that's an issue then they can get off their media-seeking butts and form a Gender Confused Scouts if they want.
Even that is not the kicker. The kicker is Planned Parenthood's involvement. You know, the people who make statements like "young people understand that they are entitled to sexual pleasure and how to experience different forms of sexual pleasure is important for their health and well-being." And then they make a lot of money killing the inconvenient end result of an act that has as its primary function the survival of the species. They have particularly excelled in making sure brown skinned varieties of Homo sapiens don't survive, a policy they've had since the group's founding.
100 Questions for the Girl Scouts has just that, and plenty more. Unfortunately. And while the slime hasn't worked its way into all Girl Scout councils, it is most definitely there and spreading. Enough that there will be no more Thin Mints in this house.
Oh, and, before anybody protests, that's my choice. Planned Parenthood is all about choice, isn't it?
