Get them While They are Young

About: girl scouts ‘media’ book encourages girls to visit media matters’ web site | theblaze.com

source: ...

Under the headline, “Consider the Source,” text encourages girls to go to the George Soros-funded Media Matters for America web site to clear up any media misinformation they might encounter. It reads:

The Internet is a breeding ground for “urban legends,” which are false stories told as if true. Next time you receive a txt or e-mail about something that seems unbelievable, confirm it before you spread it.

The fact-checking site snopes.com investigates everything from urban legends to “news” articles and posts its findings. Media Matters for America (http://mediamatters.org/) gets the word out about media misinformation.

... Similar to a suggestion to go to the White House or Congress for the truth, eh?
At this point I suggest buying something else, anything else, other than girl scout cookies until the messages to children & media clears this up for good. 
FYI ... here is media matters.

More update material, but not real changes or explanations are here. There is a link to a girl scout who opened a website on the subject, though.

Well as far as i can tell mediamatters.org just analyzes right wing spin and rebuts it with liberal views.   I suppose that the Girls Scouts could have been informed of both right and left wing spin  ... but their primary message is "Consider the Source" ... and it is very good advise indeed ... especially when your parents might be hanging out at foxnews.com all the time and getting their minds bent that way ... see this item for just how far a person can get their mind bent out of shape by listening to too much Fox.   It is almost be as bad as hanging out at msnbc.com all the time and getting steeped in liberal bias.  But the essential advise given to the scouts was excellent: "consider the source and cross check facts" ... too bad they pointed to just one side of the conversation.  

so eat girl scout cookies, they're still good for your soul

Mark de LA says
It wasn't just "too bad" that they pointed to just one side of the news (George Soros) but that it was intentional that they did so.  They won't, so far, disclose who wrote that part of the book nor why they used Media Matters and why the books are still being sold & who proof read the book.  It goes along with left-wing public education anyway - brainwashing & giving the little girls cookies for sucking it up

What is there about the Girl Scout organization that it is not allowed to promote a progressive agenda?  Just who is supposed to stop them and why?   That is exactly what freedom and liberty means ... the ability to make organizations that promote your ideals.  Are you now so steeped in radical right wing thought that you are joining in the crusades to stamp out liberalism?  Are you so very sure that your ideals are the only ones which should survive?


... and for that you get a well deserved emoticon from me

... and if i gave a shit i'd go find where you got this dumb twist and give Limbaugh or Beck or Palin or the blond bitch a big to boot.
Nothing left here but a angry droid enjoy your own company.

Both are private organizations, both s/b free from government interference.
Yes i agree.  What was the "government interference" in the case of the Girl Scouts ?

BTW, all across the nation the Boy Scouts were banned from gatherings in public parks etc because they banned atheists & agnostics from their membership -  Go Figure! I guess they would have no trouble if they opened up to communists & gays.

Oh i get it ... you started out fighting the girl scouts because they recommend liberal web sites ... now your fighting the government because they don't condone discriminating against atheists ... all of that to be right over my wrongs.  Sometimes i'm slow and it takes me a moment to grock your point.  Next time i won't pay attention.
You don't get it & you don't see it because:
Both are private organizations, both s/b free from government interference.  Get well soon!

http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2012/01/13/ventura-girl-scout-14-calls-for-cookie-boycott-over-radical-homosexual-agenda/
source: ... A Ventura County Girl Scout is at the center of a national controversy after she released a video calling for a boycott of the group’s popular cookies over what she calls a “radical homosexual agenda”.

The girl — who has only been identified as 14-year-old “Taylor” — cited the recent decision by Girl Scout officials to allow a 7-year-old “transgender” boy to join a Colorado-based troop last fall.

In a video that first appeared Wednesday, Taylor linked proceeds from cookie sales “to push a radical homosexual agenda at the expense of the Scouts’ safety.”

... crumb crunchers & some munchers!  My question is how does a boy become transgendered at 7 years old.  Sounds like a ruse if all he does is dress up like a girl scout!  If Seems a bit young to make a choice to switch his genitals on his own.

My question is how does a boy become transgendered at 7 years old.
Easy, his parents allow a doctor to snip off what rudimentary nuts he has.  It usually happens when the child is born with ambiguous genitals.  If they are correctly using the term "transgendered" then that is almost certainly what happened.  I too would doubt that a parent would just allow a child of that age to change sex upon a childish fetish. There is a lot of information about this on the web, too much for me to reference any.
Well I didnt find much on this specific case. I suspect that it's parents were similarly gendered ambiguous.
