Suitable for framing, here’s a certificate sized boy scout law with the traditional explication of the twelve points. Old time scouts will recognize the border frame from BSA National Council awards and certificates. Typographers will appreciate the old style typefaces used.
And these reports don’t even mention the unrepayable $400,000,000 in debt secured for the boondoogle Bechtel Summit, future home to the sex-and-beer party to be called “World Jamboree 2019.”

After making controversial decisions over the past few years, the Boy Scouts of America is now facing bankruptcy and a massive decline in membership.
The organization has “hired law firm Sidley Austin for assistance in a possible chapter 11 bankruptcy filing,” according to The Wall Street Journal.
The Daily Caller reported that at its peak, the organization had a membership of approximately 4 million. Now that number has dropped to an estimated 2.3 million. The controversy the organization has faced in recent years and legal costs for sexual abuse lawsuits are both believed to be factors in the decline.
The trouble may have begun in 2013 when the organization decided to allow openly gay boys to join the ranks. From there, the changes continued to bring outrage across America.
In 2015, the Boy Scouts of America lifted the ban on openly gay scout leaders. In 2017, the changes continued and transgender boys were allowed to be members.

Girls were allowed in the program in 2018 — despite the fact that they have their own Girl Scouts program. The new program was given the “gender-neutral name” of Scouts BSA.

The article’s author asks a great question, after reporting James Woods’ brilliant skewering of the BSA Inc faggotry,
By changing the name of the Boy Scouts and allowing girls in, there’s the tacit acknowledgement that an all-boys organization is patriarchal and an all-girls organization is empowering. The logic here eludes me but I’m sure a lecture on intersectionality and histories of oppression would straighten me out nicely.
As you may have heard, as of this year, the Boy Scouts are no longer the “Boy Scouts.”
“The Boy Scouts of America, in its continued effort to appeal to girls, announced on Wednesday that it would drop the ‘boy’ from its namesake program next February. The century-old organization also said that it would start welcoming older girls, opening a door for them to earn the organization’s highest rank of Eagle Scout,” The New York Times reported in May.
The new organization celebrated the change with a campaign called “Scout Me In,” which, according to a statement from the organization, “celebrates the BSA’s expansion to serve families and welcome girls and boys into Scouting in communities across the country.”
“It reinforces that the mission and core values in the Scout Oath and Scout Law are welcoming, inclusive and foundational for both young men and women.”
“As we enter a new era for our organization, it is important that all youth can see themselves in Scouting in every way possible. That is why it is important that the name for our Scouting program for older youth remain consistent with the single name approach used for the Cub Scouts,” Michael Surbaugh, chief scout executive of the Boy Scouts of America, said in the statement.
“Starting in February 2019, the name of the older youth program will be ‘Scouts BSA,’ and the name of our iconic organization will continue to be Boy Scouts of America.”
Sound confusing enough to you? Well, um, scout me in! Last I checked, there was a similar program called the Girl Scouts which did all of these things for young women.
And, in fact, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, currently one of the country’s most famous members of Congress, was a part of it.
“Every time I’ve been in a room, most people in that room looked like me, sound like me.”
American Fighting Man David Goldfein, the current chief of staff of the United States Air Force, spoke to entrants in the “Spark Tank Competition” at the annual Air Warfare Symposium at Orlando, Florida on February 28, 2019
The Spark Tank Competition’s website explains that it “celebrate[s] Air Force risk-takers, idea makers and entrepreneurs who refuse to accept the status quo and have determined their own fate by developing solutions that make it easier for the Air Force to bring the very best to the fight.”
Goldfein told the assembled Risk-Takers,
“The challenges we face as a nation are wicked hard, and it’s going to take folks with different backgrounds, different life experiences, and different perspectives to be able to come in and sit down together and provide the creative solutions that we as a nation need to be able to fight and win.”
For decades, science fiction publisher Vox Day warned against the madness of Marxist-Leninist political correctness and describes Heritage America’s capitulation to it as a moral failure of men to, well, act like men.
God help America. Here is a comment by Doktor_Jeep at Vox Populi:
So yeah. We’re screwed. All of our other mistakes are covered up well with air power. We’re going to find out the hard way how you can’t win a war with Ritalin-kids and drones.

As of Feb. 1, girls can join the troops of formerly named-Boy Scouts of America following a gender inclusive decision made by the organization in October 2017.
Previously, Girl Scouts were widely recognized to do activities such as sell cookies and other crafts whereas boys might typically do camping trips and knot tying. However, girls interested in things generally done by boys are now able to join the renamed “Scouts of America.” A statement issued by Scouts of America says there was a large demand in the years leading up to the change.
Staples high schooler and longtime Boy Scout member, Justin Schmidt ’19 feels that something was odd about the decision. “I believe that letting girls join Boy Scouts is a very sudden shift in culture within the Scouting community,” Schmidt said. “I would have rather seen a shift in the Girl Scout curriculum– seeing that this is the biggest part of the debate–than just integrating two entirely different cultures.”
New York president of The National Organization for Women, Sonia Ossorio, has been demanding this change for years now.
