I was a Boy Scout and I am pissed [View all]

Years ago I was in a troop in N.W. PA and one of the members was my
next door neighbor and his dad was the county DA and his uncle was Governor
of PA, Ray Shafer. Ray was a great guy, we would see him all the time,
and he was a republican too.

Governor Shafer would sometimes be at Boy Scout functions and he would have
never dreamed of bringing partisan politics into a scout function.

The little I could stomach of Trump at the National Jamboree made me sick.

BTW I still use things I learned in the Scouts almost every day too. Things like
tying a bowline on a bight, tying a square knot, how to build a fire, and bitching
about the weather will not change anything so just move on and do what needs to be
done.
