I haven’t weighed in on this because………..well, because I have a personal stake in it. I have made no secret that I believe the current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. is an incompetent poser. That I wouldn’t hire him to thread the needle on my sewing machine. He may be smart in the ways of the world but his common sense has left the building without a forwarding address.
l have a Boy Scout and have had one for the last 22 years. My oldest son started scouts at 8 years old, he’s 30 this year. My youngest is 14. The church I belong to has a strong tie to the Boy Scouts because it believes that scouting, if done correctly builds good leaders. I have seen this in action too many times to dispute it. If you leave children on their own with too much idle time you get troubled youth and dangerous behavior. Sorry, fact. Very few children involved in 4-H, Scouting, Boys and Girls clubs, the Y have the same problems as those who are left to their own devices. Those that do have issues are the exceptions not the rule.
So his highness, missing the Jamboree, to be seen on the view is troubling in so many different ways. It shows his disconnect with the things that make America what it is. It shows his lack of regard for fundamental principles of civilized societies. A scout is (supposed to be, this is the ideal, something they are striving for, because perfection except for liberals is not attainable in this life) trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent. These are the ideals that boys in scouting are encouraged to live, work and play by. These should be the things a president of a Democratic Republic or Representative Democracy or whatever the elites are calling it these days, he should be promoting. Instead he goes on The View?
The View promotes what exactly? Division, bigotry, intolerance, stupidity, laziness, illegality. I could go on but why bother. The harpies on the view encourage people in their bad and destructive behaviors in the guise of freedom, tolerance and openness. There is a reason some people in this country are miserable, one has only to look at their self-absorbed, self-centered, selfish actions to understand the underlying problems. Boy Scouting takes a young man and turns his attention outside of himself and when it does focus on the boy, it focuses on positive change and reinforcing appropriate and healthy behavior.
Appearing on The View was just another opportunity for “the one” to prove he has nothing in common with most Americans. He is a selfish, shallow, opportunist without a shred of moral fiber. This I’m sure is not new to most of us. The sad thing is that even this blatant disregard for the core values that are still important in most Americans lives and homes will not sway the Obamanations from their sycophant ways.
After all it’s their turn. Hopefully in November their turn will be over. One can only hope………..and pray (at least for now, until they outlaw it- wait for it, it’s coming to a community near you and you can take THAT to the bank.)
