On this day the President of the United States would do good to celebrate the 101st anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America.
But no, he chooses to fire a marshmallow cannon in the White House before cameras to demonstrate or teach our young people just what ?
He could of taken the opportunity to extoll the positive contributions of the Boy Scouts of America over the last century which cannot be overstated.
But of course his failing attempts at transforming our country, his dope and change, his sloth and deceit does not include this.
The BSA is one of those private institutions that are the very underpinnings of American life, tradition and our American culture. Today there are still more than 3 million members.
From an early age, Scouting teaches are young a lifelong learning of healthy living, serving others, building character, responsible citizenship and self-reliance.
I did not know it myself at the time when I was a Scout, a long time ago, but the many programs of Scouting inculcate the values and virtues of good American citizenship, teamwork, trustworthiness and clean living through various activities of camping, hiking, aquatics, basic archeology, through the incremental learning of outdoor skills including tying of knots, safe use of knives and tools, proper use of camp fires, respectful display of flags, sign language, being considerate of the outdoors and being conservation minded and so many more skills including social manners and respect for elders and authority that supplement the school education of youth.
A recent good read on Scouting was written by the Governor of Texas Rick Perry, "On My Honor: Why the American Values of the Boy Scouts are Worth Fighting For".
Today, I'm able to communicate with deaf/mutes because of the sign language I learned long ago as a Scout.
I'm a better man today because I was a Scout. As a young man I was taught to live a life prepared for tomorrow. It has carried me to this day.
I know it's been thought of as corny over the years, but take pause to reflect on what was instilled in us with what we were taught to recite in thought, word, and deed:
"A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent."
"On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country;
To obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight."
Do a good turn daily.
Be Prepared !

Carlos, you and I both know that no Liberal Politician would ever give the Boy Scouts a fair shake. After all according to them, it is a "Homophobic" Organization, not worth considering.
Don't want to upset that Gay and Lesbian alliance. They might cut off their precious funding of the campaign.
Regarding the Marshmallow gun, no doubt in the back of the current CIC's mind, he was trying to figure out how to make this the weapon of choice for our military. Combine that with the current ROE's the troops operate under and you guarantee and absolutely ineffective fighting force.
