RUSE: Say no to Girl Scout Cookies (more disgusting factoids on the Girl Scouts)
Washington Times ^ | January 16, 2012 | Cathy Cleaver Ruse

Posted on 01/17/2012 5:50:07 PM PST by prairiebreeze

~~snip~~

The Girl Scouts have a cross-dresser in the front office.

Ten years ago, Girl Scouts media relations officer Joshua Ackley was frontman for the “homopunk” band the Dead Betties. In publicity shots, he’s dressed in women’s clothing, and in music videos, he appears to be naked and feigning masturbation. The video for “Hellevator” portrays a woman being strangled in an elevator shaft while Mr. Ackley flashes a menacing grin.

Today he issues press releases, posts news and views on the Girl Scouts’ blog, and tries to mollify moms who are concerned about Girl Scout ties with Planned Parenthood. In fact, it was Mr. Ackley who facilitated the Girl Scouts’ “no adults allowed” workshop at the United Nations - the workshop in which the Planned Parenthood sex brochure “Healthy, Happy, and Hot” was offered, although part of Mr. Ackley’s job is to deny it.

I’m a peanut butter addict. Any suggestions as to the best PB cookie on the planet......good and peanut buttery without being sickening sweet?

I’m also a NUT nut. Walnuts, pecans, etc. What’s the best NUTTY cookie or cake?

There is always an adult with the girls when they sell cookies. Tell the adult why, not the girls.

The national HQ and the local organizations of linked, and the link cannot be broken without the local organization being punished by the national HQs.

You can rationalize all you want, but to support the local organization to support the national organization.

Listen to a wise Girl Scout on this issue:

That’s entirely the point....the organization HAS become corrupt. But many parents won’t know or won’t care to know.

If you want to donate to the troop, give them money as was suggested up thread. In the meantime, please don’t blithely purchase cookies from fresh-faced youngsters and kid yourself into thinking that you aren’t contributing to the efforts of Planned Parenthood, the United Nations, homosexual glamorization efforts and other liberal programs.

One of the dollar stores Dollar General,

Dollar General...a well kept secret.

For $2-$3 at DG, I can easily put myself into a sugary, catatonic stupor. Circus peanuts, candy corn, peppermint/butterscotch drops.

Also meant to say...I don’t do GS cookies anymore, so there has to be a substitute.

Thanks for adding that link to the thread. Although the organization may be too far gone to hit them anywhere but the pocketbook.

I HATE what the Girl Scouts has become but I am guilty of buying several boxes of their lemon cookies. I’m hooked - looking for a 12 Step program for them.

Manc, UnRuley1 mentions a group called Frontier Girls as a Girl Scouts alternative.

Fudge Peanut Butter, also a Dollar General (Clover Valley) cookie.

Check this out. Be Warned! The website is still very PRO GS. I am using it to make my point, that these cookies are GOOD! So please no flak about ME being pro GS.

http://voices.yahoo.com/clover-valley-cookies-dollar-general-10380083.html

It says the same thing I did, (with a healthy dose of GS propaganda thrown in for good measure) “similar, if not better cookie than GS, but much cheaper.”

Hope this helps.

This whole new development is so very sad to me. I was a member of the Girl Scouts for year’s as a child. It enriched my life and my friends life.
But that was locally.
I still believe that so many local Girl Scout troops are acting locally and are great.

We must stop this infiltration of the bad and support the good locally.

"Tell the adult why, not the girls."

Excellent point. An awful lot of little girls are unaware of any of this and are even in troops where the leaders deliberately avoid and shelter them from the agenda driven stuff. No need for them to get the short end of the stick from both the Girls Scouts and everyone they ask to buy a cookie.

“You can rationalize all you want...”

Sir, I’m doing no such thing. I understand the times are evil. As Paul explained, shunning of the sexually immoral is appropriate when concerning members of the Church, but for unredeemed sinners we “would have to leave this world” not to associate.

A coworker saw a picture of my young sons hiking, with their web gear, fatigues, and all; he asked if they were in scouting, and when I said no, then asked where they got all the gear (military surplus, not Boy Scouts). I told him it was all over flea markets and army navy stores, and useful in camping/backpacking.

I think he still believes it must have been a Scout troop (in cammies?). When other people have asked why they weren’t in Scouts, I replied that my family/friends take them camping more than Scouts would.

I believe the Scout groups here in NJ are consolidating as membership drops. I remember years ago when it was much more popular, but I think they spent less time camping and more time selling/fundraising. As Americans leave the state, they are being replaced by foreigners who know better than to trust anyone else with their children (boys or girls). Apparently our reputation precedes us - whether Asian or Hispanic, these parents are not the same “sleepover” parents as we had.

The Girl Scouts fell from grace for me a few years back.. I was in a book store within earshot of GS field trip where the leader was telling the girls that if stuck on a desert island, their Mothers were the brains and their Fathers were basically beasts of burden.

Rationalizing: (Post #8)all I can think of is the sweet little ladies who sell the cookies and who are miles from any controversy. They are not complicit in any adult wrongdoing.

(Post #54)The GIRLS are guileless. When they’re selling cookies out front of a store (the locus of a boycott) they are trying to build THEIR organization, not that of some impostor at HQ.

I’d buy Girl Scout cookies but, as Wednesday Addams proved, are not made of Girl Scouts.
