He's right for the most part. He's right about the community tolerating this. He is correct about nobody actively chastising these thugs.
However, lack of fathers is a huge reason. Fathers provide a strong structure and discipline to children, mothers often fail at this (that is not to say that t...

Get the porkchop. Steak is a dime a dozen across the US of A.
And, nobody said this as far as I saw -- but you can get the lunch-cut porkchop during dinner service for much cheaper. And frankly, I never finish all of the lunch cut.
If you are looking for salad, go with the Warm Spinach salad.

I disagree that everything in Texas is overrated.
However, having lived my entire life in Austin, I find people think it's much better than it really is. And it's really strange to live in a city where most people are not from Austin or not from Texas.
Houston is pretty fun, and a great place ...
