OMGoodnes, what a waste! We saw the video on the news, and i got mad, because they're trashing perfectly good cookies that can be sent to our troops, and given to the homeless and food pantries. Donate any cookies that are left!

MAY GOD FORBID THAT WE TRASH THEM AGAIN........THEY ARE A BIT OF HOME TO THOSE OVER THERE WHO ARE IN HARMS WAY..FIGHTING FOR US...PLEASE, SOMEONE MAKE SURE THIS YEAR THEY GO TO SOME GOOD USES AND NOT A TRASH DUMP...:( :(
It is better to toss the cookies in the trash......The Troops don't need all this sugar poison..
Send them something of real value other than junk sugar cookies......
Thanks for speaking up - you obviously grew up in a generation that cared - waste not, want not. Emma needs the support and wisdom of elders like you.
I want to see you thousands of miles from home with nothing but sand and death waiting around any and every corner, Charles. Then I want someone to consider sending you something to remind you of home, then saying, "Nah, this is the bad part of home.. cookies are evil and they don't need this." You, sir, are a dick.
@Charles Kevlin--I really don't know how to properly respond to this "Holier than thou" attitude, other than - I am really glad that Philadelphia is not in America. If it were, I would not be surprised at anything that happened.
Charles quit being an idiot, apparently you have never been in the military
YOU'RE AN IDIOT CHARLES KEVLIN....TROOPS DO NEED SUGAR, JUST CAUSE YOU ARE OLD AND FAT AND SHOULDN'T HAVE SUGAR...OUR TROOPS ARE IN GREAT SHAPE AND A FEW COOKIES WON'T HURT THEM!!!!! SO PLEASE TAKE YOUR VERY UNSMART REMARK OUT OF HERE!!!!
Charles Kevlin, have you ever spent time in war? sugar is NOT a problem, it's a comfort!
but that's not the issue here, now go eat your brussel sprouts!!!
ok so send them some where else u dont throw food away when there r starving people in it m u no 1 dollar a day will help all theese kids all over the world send cookies
Every year I buy several boxes of Girl Scout cookies, usually through parents in my office building whose daughters are selling them. Unless I hear that Emma has received a formal apology from the GS leaders and has been invited to re-join her troop, I never will buy another box and will encourage my family, friends and coworkers to do the same and to have nothing whatsoever to do with the Girl Scouts.
These girls would not have the freedom to 'congregate' and do any of the things the Girlscouts do if it weren't for what our soldiers do.......our soldiers fight and die to protect them and the sanctity of the Girlscouts....the very least they could do is send them a few boxes of leftover cookies.
What right is there to kicking this little girl out because of doing what she believes is right! It leaves one to wonder about the goodness of the Girl Scouts.
PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH! This little girl was standing up for what she believes is right... DON'T throw her out of SCOUTS because she made you LOOK BAD... DO the RIGHT THING!
Dear Friends only more 39 day's to be left hurry up sign and invite your friends also to sign this.......help us to reach our goal.http://www.causes.com/actions/1730991-ban-jamaat-e-islami-from-bangladeshi-politics?ctm=recommended_activities.
Who does this damn girl scout "leader" think she is. While she "may" be able to waste thousands of dollars worth of cookies, and kick you out of the troop, she has no right to tell you or any of the girls who you can and cannot talk to.
My suggestion is if The Gir Scout Orginatation is going to act like this & just throw away the unsold Cookies instead of Donating them, then my Suggestion is to Boycot buying Girl Scout Cookies next year.
Wow! My daughters are both Girl Scouts. We work so hard to get customers to support our Gift of Caring, that I don't understand why the councils wouldn't have their own GoC. Such a hypocritical way to behave!!! (Our cookies will be shipped to TN this year, for the kids at St Jude's Hospital.)
Maybe you could also send some to the people the troops are supposed to be helping, but unfortunately I see way to much evidence that they are not helping much at all but rather securing oil fields for export to the US!
