Normally I try to steer clear of Scout articles that come from news sources or other public sources that are highly political in nature because of the fact that even though a Scout is suppose to be patriotic I do not believe that scouts and politics should mix together. Whenever these two mix both the government and the Scouts end up causing each other large amounts of grief.
Lets now get back to the subject. A article in the Patriot Post which is a conservative Journal caught my attention through another blog that I follow as being very interesting. This article discusses why America needs the Boy Scouts more than ever in today's society if we want to ensure that a lot of boys do not waste away their lives by becoming hoodlums.
So here is the link the the story. Hopefully you will enjoy it. Click here.
