<< I wear my old coumcil patch and I will never wear the new one. If a DE were
to give me grief over it, my response would be simple and directed at his
source of income: "No FOS in my unit this year!" He'll change his tune fast.
Old community strips are valid for as long as the volunteer serves the same

Attaboy Fred thats the way we all teach tolerance. "My way or the Highway",
coupled with threats, because you disagree with something.
That example will someday come back at you when a youth or a parent basically
tells YOU to "stick it in your ear", and I wonder how well that exchange will
And if the threat is persuasive enough, perhaps you will go packing with your
tail between your legs pretty darn quick. All the while taking pride in what
you have taught the young men about personal interaction. Enjoy.
