So a local girl scout troop gave kids who end up at a shelter something to do and the farkgressives try to turn this into a sign of the apocalypse.

Yeah, that line definitely needs to be changed for modern times. Otherwise the song's pretty spot on.

You: it's great that homeless girls are being given something useful to do.
Sane people: The girls shouldn't be homeless in the first place.

The fact the Girl Scouts don't let boys in renders any good deeds null.  And void.  Probably moot and mute too.

Yeah, it's really the better organization for teaching kids about business. Have you seen what Boy Scouts sell? It's dumb shiat no one wants like yogurt covered pretzels for forty bucks. Meanwhile, the kids are all farking around while dad does the work.

I see the Girl Scouts and the wallet comes out, I see the Boy Scouts and I pretend I didn't.

Heck the only time I willingly give money to the local boy scout troop is if there selling bbq chicken meals.
Would it kill them to let those boys sell something like jerky, a decent pocket knife, or something else that's related to what they're teaching them.

I knew a few girl scouts that let the boys in.


Oh wait. . .you're talking about something else.

if the girl scouts had any soul they would give the profits of these girls' sales to the homeless shelters.

Fifty years of failed conservative economic policy has bled this country dry. Trickle down union busting reganomic bullshiat has taken it's toll on the working class, and now all you can do is snicker at people that are outraged because kids "ended up" in a shelter? You realize that average, working class families are living out of their cars right now right? You've seen the tent cities sprouting up along the highways? We're in the midst of the greatest economic failure since the great depression, and all you can do is mock people for giving a shiat?
Well hey, I guess you're right. As long as the stock market is up, it's all just a bunch of alarmist bs yeah?

And it still doesn't change the fact that fear, anger, and frustration is a marketing tactic used by media to generate ad revenue.

Where have you been?
