Ted Nugent recently penned a column regarding the violence in Ferguson, stating ““killer” liberalism is the real problem, Nugent concludes, and only by renouncing it will African-Americans finally see their lot improve.” I know what Liberalism means. How can renouncing “Liberalism” end violence? Is violence limited to that African-American population? I think not. For those so inclined, you can click on the word Liberalism for a definition.

My friends, Last month, the son of a dear friend of ours was burned in a tragic accident. He will be a long time in recovering. Tragically during this time, the home that the family was renting has been sold and now they have to move. Collin goes to wound care 2 times a week at 100 miles round trip each visit.

He wanted to know what I thought he should do. So I explained. It is ok for a girl to like you. It is ok for you to like a girl. It is probably against the rules in your facility for you to have a girlfriend. So this week, during the report, he primary said that he is different this week than they have ever seen. Not asking for snack, not eating his favorite snack. Appearing sullen and withdrawn. And the staff thought that they heard David
