How to erase history!

Seasons of my life

Why Do We Stand?

I'll Always Be There!

I Feel Just Like a Baby!

That's Life!

That's Life!

War is Hell

Oh! Where did it all go?



'OH! My,my,my!"





Forgive and Forget?

So Why Should I?

Fifty Years Later

All in a DAY

A Warrior's Soul

"Good Life"


My Only Son


"American Pie"

War is Hell!

Daream Catcher

Time is a Thief!

Ode to T/Sgt. Glenn Wilson

Never To Late!

The  Great American Tax Payer

Things are just great…so they say!
Gas goes up a dollar everyday.
If this keeps up…we'll all be walking
and our cars at home will simply stay.

It only took a few days to win the war,
but look at the years it'll take to win the peace.
A few good men and women die everyday, but
as the years go by, that amount will soar no matter
how much we cry and pray.

Our borders are standing wide open …thousands are coming in;
illegal, outlaws, dope peddlers and terrorists too! Pretty soon,
there will be no room for me or you!

With the cost of all this and shots to the moon,
your taxes will soar like a trillion dollar balloon!
They say it takes the first four months of each year
to earn the taxes we pay.  That just goes to prove
hard working Americans are getting the shaft  
each and everyday!

AFTA, is going to make your life easier…so they said.

What do you mean…you can't find a job!
There's plenty of jobs; picking vegetables, fruits,
flipping burgers and parking cars. At minimum wage…
you're sure to be hired!
Pay your taxes on time…so they can afford to continue
this folly of spending your last tax dime.

The good old American Tax Payer…what a great guy!
They say; Things are just great… Yeah! Well…they must be high!
