We have met the enemy, and they are not the Girl Scouts

Who are the people elected to office? The very same people telling America that testing and privatization can save our schools. Let's all come to the realization that many of our lawmakers are not smarter than a fifth-grader.  Allow me to introduce an elected official, Indiana State Representative Bob Morris who clearly is not smarter than a fifth-grader.
This week Bob Morris Indiana State Representative refuse to sign resolution honoring the 100 Anniversary of the Gril Scouts of America. He sent the following letter to his colleagues urging them not to sign it as well.
Here is his letter: Verbatim text of letter from Indiana state Rep. Bob Morris, R-Fort Wayne, to fellow lawmakers.

February 18, 2012
Members of the Republic Caucus
Dear Fellow Representatives:
This past week I was asked to sign a House Resolution recognizing the 100th Anniversary of Girl Scouts of America. After talking to some well-informed constituents, I did a small amount of web-based research, and what I found is disturbing. The Girl Scouts of America and their worldwide partner, World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), have entered into a close strategic affiliation with Planned Parenthood. You will not find evidence of this on the GSA/WAGGGS website—in fact, the websites of these two organizations explicitly deny funding Planned Parenthood.
Nonetheless, abundant evidence proves that the agenda of Planned Parenthood includes sexualizing young girls through the Girl Scouts, which is quickly becoming a tactical arm of Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood instructional series and pamphlets are part of the core curriculum at GSA training seminars. Denver Auxiliary Bishop James D. Conley of Denver last year warned parents that "membership in the Girl Scouts could carry the danger of making their daughters more receptive to the pro-abortion agenda."
A Girl Scouts of America training program last year used the Planned Parenthood sex education pamphlet "Happy, Healthy, and Hot." The pamphlet instructs young girls not to think of sex as "just about vaginal or anal intercourse." "There is no right or wrong way to have sex. Just have fun, explore and be yourself!" it states. Although individual Girl Scout troops are not forced to follow this curriculum, many do. Liberal progressive troop-leaders will indoctrinate the girls in their troop according to the principles of Planned Parenthood, making Bishop Conley's warning true.
Many parents are abandoning the Girl Scouts because they promote homosexual lifestyles. In fact, the Girl Scouts education seminar girls are directed to study the example of role models. Of the fifty role models listed, only three have a briefly-mentioned religious background – all the rest are feminists, lesbians, or Communists. World Net Daily, in a May 2009 article, states that Girl Scout Troops are no longer allowed to pray or sing traditional Christmas Carols.
Boys who decide to claim a "transgender" or cross-dressing life-style are permitted to become a member of a Girl Scout troop, performing crafts with the girls and participate in overnight and camping activities – just like any real girl. The fact that the Honorary President of Girl Scouts of America is Michelle Obama, and the Obama's are radically pro-abortion and vigorously support the agenda of Planned Parenthood, should give each of us reason to pause before our individual or collective endorsement of the organization.
As members of the Indiana House of Representatives, we must be wise before we use the credibility and respect of the "Peoples' House" to extend legitimacy to a radicalized organization. The Girl Scouts of America stand in a strong tradition that reflects with fidelity the traditional values of our homes and our families. The tradition extends from coast-to-coast and back through the past one hundred years. That said, I challenge each of you to examine these matters more closely before you extend your name and your reputation to endorse a group that has been subverted in the name of liberal progressive politics and the destruction of traditional American family values.
I have two daughters who have been active in the Girl Scouts of Limberlost Council in Northeastern Indiana. Now that I am aware of the influence of Planned Parenthood within GSA and other surprisingly radical policies of GSA, my two daughters will instead become active in American Heritage Girls Little Flowers organization. In this traditional group they will learn about values and principles that will not confuse their conservative Hoosier upbringing.
I have been told that, as of today, I am the only member not supporting the Girl Scout Resolution.
I challenge each of you to examine these matters and to decide carefully whether or not to sign the resolution.
Bob Morris

Has anybody noticed he did not say anything about the Boy Scouts? Perhaps it is only the girls that are dangerous to Representative Morris? We can not afford to elect crazies like this to America's legislatures any longer.  
First let's all just agree that doing a little internet research does not reach the bar of any fifth-grader's research report assignment. I don't even know where to go with this nonsense. It is becoming scary, because electing people like this is placing our democracy at risk.
Children are more than test scores, and the Girls Scouts deserve better than shoddy internet research.

Finally let's all show these crazies what democracy looks like this fall, and vote them out of office?
Ready to occupy the DOE in DC this March 30. 31, & April 1 & 2,
Jesse The Walking Man also votes!

  1. Here to the radicals! Enjoy some quotes from Famous Girl Scouts

    "The Girl Scouts is where I became acquainted with the idea that a woman can do anything. Learning that early on has a tremendous impact on the development of a young girl’s personality. It had a huge impact on me. Girl Scouts is where I first learned about philanthropy and fell in love with the concept of helping others—in my troop this was very important. We did a lot of community service like picking up trash and feeding the homeless. Loving humankind was something that echoed throughout my time at Girl Scouts."
    -Lisa Ling, TV Journalist

    "I think the most enduring lesson I was taught through my experiences of being a Girl Scout was that I was a member of a larger community. I out-grew my uniforms and badges years ago, but the memories of visiting nursing homes or organizing Earth Day tree plantings or my summers camping with girls from all different backgrounds will stay with me always."
    -Natalie Merchant, Musician

    "These days, the Girl Scouts are promoting technology, financial knowledge, business planning and skills that we in corporate America are looking for…The beauty is that the Girl Scouts look at the potential that exists in every girl but doesn’t always get to come out, and they lock into this and provide a vehicle that helps the girls grow into confident and smart businesswomen."
    -Cathy Couglin, President/CEO of AT&T Midwest

    "Girl Scouts offered a wonderful group of girls where common concerns and interests could come together. We could learn, be challenged, and support one another. It was a very positive aspect of my life and played an important role in shaping who I am today."
    -Judy Woodruff, Anchor & Senior Correspondent, CNN

    "The thing I received from Girl Scouts more than anything else was a sense of real teamwork and working for the community, helping others, and it was not competitive. I remember working as a group to achieve a goal or to help the community. There was a great sense of accomplishment in that."
    -Cathy Rigby, Olympic Gymnast and TV Commentator

    "Girl Scouting was hugely important to me. It affirmed that you could do anything you wanted to do. I was real active in camping too, working in the summers at Girl Scout camps for several years. That, plus what you did in your troops and through the year. The whole experience was just so affirming for a woman. I can't say enough positive things about it."
    -Virginia Edwards, Editor, Education Week & President, Editorial Projects in Education

    "I Lived a ways out of town and couldn’t join the Girl Scouts when I was younger. I always admired them and felt that they were really getting prepared for life and having a great time. I will wear my uniform proudly. This great honor lets me live out a dream and lets me be part of an organization that stands for many of the same values I do. "
    -Dolly Parton, Singer, Songwriter, Businesswoman

    "It's important for people to believe in themselves. It's important for young girls to have the opportunity to excel and promote themselves, and learn how to communicate and that they can be individuals, yet accomplish so much. The Girl Scouts and other organizations like them make that so important, so vital. Girls are given the opportunity very early in life to give them that confidence in themselves. It's crucial for organizations to support young women."
    -Linda Chavez-Thompson, Former Executive Vice-President, AFL-CIO
