    Can a CO profit off a unit?

    Beyond the charter renewal fee, does your CO provide meeting space/storage? If they do you need to figure that into your calculation. Yes, it's part of their responsibility but that doesn't mean the cost is $0.

    After tomorrow I am hoping all the hype dies down

    It's a feature of quasi-religious movements, not a bug. Believe unquestioningly or be excommunicated. Makes it so much easier to control the masses.

    One can be pro-boy without being anti-girl.

    5 Ideas for "No-Dishwashing" Camp Dinners

    Get a piece of beef roast, thoroughly cover in an ice cream salt and mustard slurry, bury in the coals. Bust the crust off with the back of your knife and dig in.

    Merit Badges of Yore...

    I'm the proud holder of a Beekeeping MB. At one point the BSA said they were going to make pollinators part of Env. Science I think.

    I don't know that I said she was endorsing a candidate. She was however using her uniform to push a political position at a political event in which politicians were exploiting her and her uniform for political gain. I agree that it's a lot of work to chase around every button and ball cap. However, if we're going to say it's too much work, one should be equally laissez-faire when one sees a scout wearing an "Abortion is Murder" button on their uniform in the same way. So what say you? Anything goes or anything goes for her because she's her?

    To be clear. There is nothing in Article 2 Section 3 of the Constitution that requires POTUS to give a public speech from the House floor to a joint session of Congress. In fact historically the SOTU was just delivered via letter. The fact that the SOTU has be come a televised spectacle makes it a political event. If it isn't a political event why does every politician in America invite someone associated with their favorite cause to the SOTU for photo ops and recognition? Because they are using the event to signal their stands to their constituency. The Patch article you shared is exactly what makes the SOTU a political event!

    She stood for a picture with Speaker Pelosi and her congress woman Carolyn B. Maloney, with an ERA YES button on her uniform. The SOTU is a political event and Ireland was pushing a political message, in her BSA uniform.

    They already did. From the patch article above, quoting her father:

    Crass politicians using children to pander to their voter base?
