Well the US government has used one of the largest retail store chains to
distribute the new $1 coin. What a great idea for both. Just the amount of
volume a single Wal-Mart store produces is more than enough to get a good
supply of the new coin in the publics hands. But even a better idea; Could
you even fathom the idea of Wal-Mart and the BSA in a partnership to get
uniforms on more scouts!
It would be a Win, Win situation for everyone. BSA is always bragging that
the uniforms are made in the USA, well that is Wal-Marts major marketing
It's kind of like Henry Ford's idea of a Car in every garage! Well why not
a Scout Shop in every Wal-Mart!
Yes I know this is a "Pipe Dream" but it's a good one. I know the chances
of this ever happening are Zero to Nil but it would be great.
