Trump's speech dishonors what the Boy Scouts stand for



Attacking Obama, who was a  boy scout,

Trump did raise some eyebrows, no doubt.

Ingrained in each youth

Are good manners and truth

Two values it seems he’s without.

  • I respectfully disagree with your headline, my friend. The speech did dishonor the Boy Scout values -- but they should never be dishonored.

    There may be a debate over diction, but I question Boy Scout values by inviting him, and then papering it over with some statement distancing itself from divisiveness and partisanship. Those who invited him should have known what they were getting, or should have made sure he took his Latuda first.

    However, there does seem to be a type of disorder that those like the Boy Scouts are suffering, as I got something from the World Jewish Congress about Trump's and Niki Haley's strong stand against anti-Semitism. Suffice it to say, I didn't put $58 into the return envelope, as solicited.

    Thanks, Margaret. Point taken. I've tweaked the headline.
