If that's no good, then buy a raffle ticket from a charity for $2 and hope for the best.

When you pay for your cookies, keep in mind that 95% of the four dollars goes to the administration to pay staff. The girl scouts reap little or no benefit from the cookie profit. Meanwhile, girl scout camps all over the area are closing due to high administrative costs of the girl scout office. Anything that the girl scouts do, the girls pay for out of pocket. Yeah, a real worthy cause.

You speak the truth. The Girl Scouts and the Boys Scouts are organizations run by greedy pinheads that don't mind using young children and their parents to pad their bank account. The profit from the sales goes directly to the salaries of the the big cheeses and a few of her minions. Anything the kids need or want to do comes right out of their parent's pocket. It is an organization whose time is past and if it continues in some form should be run by parents, like a PTO is. There is no need for overpaid fatasses in offices who don't have a normal IQ among them. Google the corruption uncovered in both the Boys and Girl Scouts are you will see exactly what I mean. Heck, the scouting office even pays for the higher education of the employees---guess where the money from that came from---you got it, the kids selling cookies.

Your moniker reminds me of a former Girl Scout employee of a few years ago who got the organization to pay for a Master's degree for her and then when she had that secured she quit to move on to the next not-for-profit organization out of town that would pay her even more. A real sleazy piece of trash she was...good riddance...but they should have made her pay them back the thousands that they invested in her degree.

Masters isn't THAT expensive now people you can do it if you really wanted it!
It is very expensive. Stop posting your ignorant comments about something of which you know nothing, moron. If you really want to do something, reimburse the girls for the lost revenue that the girl scout office paid to that thief.

LOL Oh no! 75k is "insurmountable" "big money" to oooticans I forgot!
Gotta love the oooticans! ATAAACK! Obviously you see who has the Masters, thanks!
Yes, and it is very obvious that you do not have a master's degree and very likely never graduated from high school. We are talking about theft of services and you are way off topic. Perhaps your ADD is kicking in. In any case, take your meds and calm down. Use spell check. Your presentation is incomprehensible. Perhaps a junior site would be better suited to your written expression needs.
