That isn’t the point.

Actually that is the point. Why should the tax payer subsidize a private organization?

There are other organizations in the country that to some people may seem to be decent and moral but we do not give them free rent.

I guess a legal document means nothing to you, huh? That was the agreement and the city should be held to it. I guess you also believe that the constitution is a living document?

The scouts built the building for the government in 1928 at no charge and have maintained and it ever since. The government doesn’t put any money into it. The $1/year is for the land that it is on as it is officially a government owned property. Here, Philly is just reneging on a very old agreement because they hate the boyscouts.

Young people are not working yet and the community at that time must have thought is was a good thing to do with their youth so they didn’t become juveniles delinquent.

It was an excellnet investment!

In those days cynics like you were rare!

No it’s not the point. Have some charity for a truly good cause in your heart.
