Girl ScoutsHere in the United States, this time of the year is marked by the sale of cookies. These little delectable goodies, which sell for about $4 a box, are a tradition. They are sold by little girls in brown uniforms as a fundraiser for the Girl Scouts. Years ago I sold these treats to neighbors and relatives; going door to door with my best friend offering a smile and a plea to buy boxes of cookies.

The same happens today. Only now the Girl Scouts and the organization’s true colors have begun to come to light and our hard earned money is going to promote their agenda under the veil of adorable grade schoolers dressed in little brown uniforms.

The reports of pamphlets handed out to Girl Scout members at a UN conference provided by Planned Parenthood have been well documented. As have the financial reports that prove the girl’s leadership organization funnels a portion of it’s annual proceeds, much of which comes from cookie sales, to Planned Parenthood and the company’s upper officials.

Despite the great love many of us have for Thin Mints, for the first time I’m seeing a number of people willing to bypass their cookies in order to send a message to the Girl Scouts. They are, apologetically, turning down the smiling girls at their front door and talking about it on Facebook and Twitter.
