Once again, where's the daddy?
Meet 17 year old Julian Douglas. Charged withe murdering 53 year old Gary Secone.
Once again, no mention of a daddy in the story. Maybe if Julian had one, he wouldn't be looking at a life time in prison.
You know... as a conservative, it would go a long way if liberals could just own for once that Julian here is a product of the welfare state. After all, once welfare allowed a families to exist without fathers, guess what? They did. And Julian here is going to pay the price.
Once we can all agree on the fact that welfare has caused a disintegration of the family, we can really start to look at things that might help keep families together and kids like Julian here out of the penal system.
My father was far from perfect, but I know my life was so much better for having him in my home than without. You could ask my friends growing up if they would have preferred having their fathers in the home, except you can't. They are now dead. My guess is, they would have agreed.
