Troop 76 taught me a tremendous amount of skills and information to help me be a better citizen and to enjoy, preserve, and survive, in the wilderness. I did not progress on to the Explorer Scout level, but after reading this article I would have joined in a minute. This is definitely a ray of hope for the youth of our country.

When government gives permission for the killing of one segment of the population, does it not then give permission for the death of others in our society? I believe it does, thus I am against abortion and capital punishment. It seems, though, that the government's recent exploration into socialist health care will add another segment into the 'best to be dead' category, the elderly. Abortion kills the young, capital punishment kills the psychos and societal misfits, but the new exploration looks at the financial reward for limiting care to the elderly. I guess if the government can end life in it's early stages it then has the right to end it at later stages.
