    My twenty year old daughter was shot multiple times Wednesday night 6/8/16 in Charlotte NC. She has two bullets inside her.. lost her spleen, 2 holes in the stomach. I have been encouraging her to leave the city before something terrible happens.. she didnt7, but she will now. I am amazed by God's Almighty Grace that she is alive, I think, even lucky, considering the close range. Pray for her to seek Jesus, to heal, to say goodbye forever to the boy who put her in harms way. Pray for his soul. As usual, he was relatively unharmed, taking one...

    The April 15th tax revolt is on! My local tea party is set and I would like some help with topics. Asheville, NC is the Liberal capital of the South, so I need some ideas. I would like to collect some things the liberals hate about the bailout and stimulus and use it during our tea party. Honestly, the disgust with this crosses party lines. Also, the Tea Party I am participating in, is part of a Libertarian- sorta annual revolt. I, of course, will not violate my strong conservative beliefs and am not "reaching across the aisle" in compromise....

    The principal of T.C. Roberson High School says an alleged assault on a student has been blown out of proportion, but the teen's mother says her son is the victim and the school isn't sticking up for him. Principle Bob Weinkle says he ordered an internal investigation of the incident, and says while there may have been as assault, he doesn't believe it had a sexual motive. However, the 15-year old victim's mother says that is not the case. Elizabeth Murray says two boys pinned her son against a wall and sexually assaulted him while he was clothed. The Buncombe...

    I am requesting prayer for my family... a miracle really must happen. Here is the situation: We have nine days to find another place to live that is affordable. My husband and I both work, but he pays 2/3 of his income on child support from an old order when he earned twice as much income. Asheville is an extremely expensive area to live. If we cannot find a place to live, we need prayer for patience. We would have to live in a shelter for a while, please help us find the silver lining in that (this is real-...

    I am considering re- enlisting for active duty deployment. I do not want this post turned into a sob story or anything so I will just state the facts. I am 36 years old, former special ops- civil affairs. Since my kids have gone to school I have been unable to keep a job for long. I have ADHD which makes it considerably hard for me to work on a time clock, due to forgetting to clock in/ out or losing track of time. This has created financial havoc and my kids would rather be at their dad's house where...
