Girl Scout CEO Makes YouTube
Plea Against Cookiecott

Breitbart's Big Government, by Austin Ruse

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 2/22/2014 9:10:42 PM

There is now little doubt that the Girl Scout cookie boycott is having an effect on cookie sales this year. Girl Scout spokesman Kelly Parisi went on The O’Reilly Factor this week to try and defuse the mounting controversy, and Girl Scout executives have sent threatening letters to their critics. Girl Scout CEO Anna Marie Chavez took to YouTube on Thursday to deny all charges leveled by the boycotters and to deny at least one charge they haven’t even made. “Recently, various individuals and organizations announced their intention to boycott GS cookies this year, based on mistaken beliefs about our

I have no idea of what to make of this teaser opening paragraph. I tried going to the article and got an error message 404 Article Not Found. And with no comments, I am simply lost on this.

I never bought the cookies because they´re grossly overpriced and almost none of the money goes to the scout troops selling them, but I would have stopped along time ago because of their support of causes that have nothing to do with scouting. As the article points out, prior CEOs openly boasted about their relationship with PP. The boycott must be working if they´re resorting to tactics like this. You´d think people would learn: Everything that´s taken over by liberals collapses.

For those who like the Thin Mints: Melt 1 cup of chocolate chips with a tablespoon of shortening. Stir in 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon of peppermint extract. Coat Ritz crackers with this mixture. It´s an excellent homemade version.

The little girls become like indentured servants of the Executives at Girl Scouts Inc. They bring in millions of dollars in compensation and bonuses for the upper management, while the Troops get almost nothing in return. The Troops would be better off sitting on the intersection with a sign that says, "Will Scout for Donations."

What makes me sick is that the Girl Scout organization at the top is infiltrated with leftist lesbian-leaning women who want to indoctrinate young girls with "alternative lifestyle" propoganda.

Continue the boycott. When they stop squealing you´ll know it´s safe to release the death grip.

´movement´ to describe an organization, I also think it is political in nature.

I haven´t bought GS cookies for many years.
About 20 years ago, my daughter was a scout. Her leader was VERY nice. She took them to some national GS camp above NYC. The camp overbooked. My daughter and her small troop stayed in the ´adult´ building. So the girls get the low-grade facilities and the adult scouts get the nice place with linens etc provided.

I was a girl scout about 100 years ago.
It was super fun. NOTHING political.
The focus was on reading the book, doing good deeds and earning those buttons (which I still have in a jar--most having fallen off my little vest---I never could earn a button for sewing).
The worst thing we had to worry about was leaders that smoked.
Sad the org has fallen so far.

When my daughter, now 23, was a Girl Scout, she went to camp every summer (especially for the horses). They weren´t supposed to bring Bibles, but she did anyway. At night she´d organize a small group, sneak out of the tents and conduct a Bible study. Today...She´s beginning to make a name for herself as a C.S. Lewis scholar.

All they need to do to make up for lost sales is do what one girl scout did set up outside a marijuana shop. If they did that on the left coast and in Colorado I´m sure they would get rid of any leftover cookies. It would be a good life experience for the girl scouts to interact with the drug addled./s

This year the cookie selling is the worst I´ve seen. They get you at home, at most of the markets, and new places I´ve never been cookie attacked before. I don´t argue with them, I just say I´ve already bought some. There is no answer to that, and it stops the high pressure screaming.

Unaware of the witch hunt carried out by McCarthy’s rainbow-brandishing gay great-grandsons in Silicon Valley, a middle-aged man came forward and cried out in Italian, “Is it just me, or is the gay lobby imposing a dictatorship on us with their so-called scientific experts?” The science to which he referred wasn’t JavaScript, but rather psychology and pediatrics.

The people at Mozilla may yet live to regret their decision in cooperating with the forcing out of Brendan Eich. Apparently the internet giant has been getting a lot of negative reaction to its jettisoning of Eich for his contribution in support of California’s Proposition 8 back in 2008. Whether or not this will actually end up hurting Mozilla, one wonders whether Mozilla even anticipated the possibility. The folks at Mozilla travel in a world in which PC thought dominates, and if you don’t believe me, take Nate Silver’s word for it (and after the 2012 election, I’m inclined to

The former US Senator from North Carolina had charmed Rachel Lambert Mellon, known to all as Bunny, into donating $700,000 for his 2008 presidential bid. Prosecutors charged he used some of the money to support his mistress Rielle Hunter, who was then pregnant with his daughter Frances Quinn.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million.

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists.

Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov.

Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons.
