    • You likely have some marketable skills. It's clear the BSA isn't looking out for you as an employee, and future decline is likely inevitable. You should make for the exits before everybody else gets the same idea. It's noble to "go down with the ship" but I like being able to pay my bills and retire someday. 
    • God Bless my friend.  Someone I Know has contacted local government officials and requested financial assistance for just such activities.  These include judges, the Sheriff, Tax Commissioner, Lawyers, juvenile court officials, physicians and anyone else who has a vested interest in the community.  Someone I Know has always been successful and has always achieved Someone I Know's objective. In fact, some of these folks have special accounts and funds for these types of things.
    • I dont know you but I have known many like you.  I would guess that you joined up because you like kids, believed in the program, and was interested in a job where you could have a positive impact on young people.  Remember I'm just guessing here. You felt that this was a great oppertunity and would be a great and rewarding job.  These are some of the reasons that I entered government service.  After several years of beating your head against a wall, being criticized and chastised despite your best efforts to succeed,  removing numerous fixed blade cutting instruments from your back, and having your decisions questioned at every turn, you find it very difficult to remember just why you signed on.  Just guessing.
    • For most of the parents I know or meet, Eagle is the goal.  It doesn't matter if the scout likes camping, the scout is in the program because mom and dad want him to get Eagle.  I've seen parent comments online wanting nights at home to count for Camping MB.  A leader just said a few nights ago said that she thought those nights should count and she's the MB counselor so it should be her discretion.  She was not referring to the rank advancement changes.  If BSA's main attraction is Eagle, then many parents would be happy if camping was eliminated because it just means their scout has one less obstacle to achieving Eagle and moving on to the next item for the college application.
    • Just got off the retirement plan webinar. I really could've done without one of the Assistant Chiefs who makes 300k a year telling us "I know you must be mad, but remember why you joined in the first place"
