Ted Nugent sees Texas governor race representing 2 different futures.
Devil’s Night traditionally occurred the night before Halloween when I was growing up in the MotorCity way back in the 1950s and ’60s. Traditionally, houses were TP’d and egged, windows were soaped or waxed, a few streetlights and porch lights were shot out, lawns got salted, and even real nasty destructive crimes were committed with slashed tires and broken windows.
But at the Nugent house, the various forms of vandalism and intentional destruction of other’s personal property were virtually forbidden. We were taught that hard work was necessary to have certain things in life and that such hooliganisms were simply not allowed.
My dear old Dad, God love him, would have certainly “knocked our block off” had we engaged in such irresponsible and downright asinine behavior.
What sort of numbnut could possibly think hurting others and then expecting a handout the next day on Halloween was a plausible series of events?
I’ll tell you who – the new species of we the sheeple, that’s who. Punks that were brainwashed into believing that earning your own way was for suckers, that if someone had some nice things, surely they were cheating and they owed you.
One need look no further than my beloved birth-city of Detroit to see how this self-inflicted dumbing down and spiritual decay manifests itself – from soaping windows to burning down entire neighborhoods to going bankrupt, both economically and spiritually.
