6. No, because it's the only way the GSA makes any money
And, I was in the GSA. Back then, we sold our cookies on our own, now it's too dangerous for kids to do (it was probably too dangerous then, too). I loved the SCouts,a nd think it's a great organization for girls.

Of course, I respect it annoying you, but I'm too busy eating shortbread cookies to care...
