PostSubject: Scouts trained to fight terrorists   Fri May 15, 2009 12:10 pm

This is a link to an article in the NYTimes that talks about scouts that are trained to fight terrorists.
http://www.nytimes.com/2009/05/14/us/14explorers.html?em
I find the photo and article just a little upsetting.
Do we really have to start training kids to protect the security of our country. Will it be "trick or treat" next Halloween or "Hands against the wall"?

I'm completely with you Bub. Absolutely schocking.
Insanity rules the world, so it seems.
Child soldiers, where did I see it again? Nazi Germany, Africa?
Sad, indeed.

Hey Bub,

I'm glad that you are passionate about this issue. It sickens me as well. I'd like to invite you to participate in the Rubber Room section, which is set aside for just this type of discussion or threads that have a good chance of becoming shall we say 'heated'.

Please understand, I'm just another poster here, and I don't have any 'authority'. I believe your first thread on the subject was moved to the rubber room mostly because of the growing 'heat' in the responses.

I think the subject warrants discussion and ACTION, I'm just not sure this is the right place on the board for it.

Peace Bro,

In fairness to the BOB, my first post wasn't deleted, but I can't say where it went...neither can Dock.
My passions are the kids and the state of our country. This is a link about explorer scouts:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Explorer_Scouts
Some people like scouts and others don't, but a kid is still a kid. We all understand that a kid has to become a man, but do they have to become, or even think about becoming, law enforcement officers at such a young age? The next question is of course, does our country really need these young officers now? Let me be honest, I am sure that we don't need 15-18 year olds patrolling our borders or checking our luggage at airports, but do we have to start them thinking along these lines for career choices?

Bub,

Your first thread is here: http://www.brothersofbriar.com/rubber-room-f9/does-anyone-find-this-article-upsetting-t4964.htm

Moved there and clearly stated so by Puff Daddy I believe. Should you so wish, follow the instructions here: http://www.brothersofbriar.com/joining-the-asylum-f28/joining-the-asylum-t3752.htm

You will then have access to The Rubber Room where lively debate has continued on your original thread.
