Consider these headlines:
NRA will “Never Surrender.”
The Tea Party will “Never Surrender.”
The No Tax Group will “Never surrender.”
Neocons will “Never Surrender.”
Far Left Liberals will “Never Surrender.”
When will these shrill “Never Surrender” types learn that they are causing Congressional gridlock?
When will they learn that there has to be compromise for the national “Common Good.”?
There are major national problem which must be solved now, such as fiscal and immigration reform, reduction of gun violence and last, but not least, perpetual care for the wounded warriors disabled, mentally and physically by roadside bombs.
Of course, it would help immensely if the present administration would show some strong, focused leadership instead of wasting time and talent on making sure its legacy is politically correct.
How will Congress get itself ungridlocked? The Boy Scouts of America (B.S.A.) has an answer, while it ponders a possible major change in its membership requirement.
In the May-June issue of Scouting Magazine (published for adult Scout leaders) We Scouters are reminded of the Fifth Point of the Scout Law: A Scout is courteous.
So as we proceed, let’s remember that courtesy and respect for those with whom we disagree will help us work together to make One BSA that will last for generations to come.
We can disagree on a variety of topics while still working together to change the lives of youth through Scouting. This is from an organization of 2.7 million youth and 1 million adult members.
That said, I strongly suggest that you “Never Surrender” types, along with the majority speakers of both the Senate and House of Representatives take heed and take a vow to be courteous!
