Say It isn’t So: Girl Scouts To Earn “Science of Happiness” Badge

From USA Today:

“This is the first major update (of badges) at every level since 1987,” says Alisha Niehaus of Girl Scouts of the USA. “We kept some favorites, but added new ones that will help girls build the leadership skills they’ll need for success in the 21st century.”

Gone is 1987’s Fashion, Fitness and Makeup badge; in its place, a Science of Style badge has girls explore use of nanotechnology in fabrics and the chemistry of sunscreens.

Says Belafonte to Behar: “I don’t think prayers were created for him.” Behar laughs. Disgusting.

If there is any doubt about what the Occupy Wall Streeters want, this story will clear it up: They want your wallet.  It’s a shameful display of gimme, gimme in which the productive of the world are bad guys. In other words, they are radical Leftist redistributionists, plain and simple.

“They want to take showers, want to wash up and use the toilet paper to dry up. It becomes … you gotta have one person assigned just to clean the bathrooms,” said Steve Zamfotis, manager of “Charley’s” restaurant.

Zamfotis, who runs a pizza shop directly across the street from Zuccotti Park, said he has to stand guard at the door — just to keep protesters out.

“They expect everything, everything for free, nothing to pay,” Zamfotis said.
