Give me your money!

 The government seems to be very good at taking money from us. 

The question is ... how do they spend it?

God Bless America

Retired Naval Petty Officer, 1st Class
Generald Wilson, October 26, 2013

"God Bless America" was written by Irvin Berlin during World War I, but he decided not to use the song at that time. Years later, as the world was headed toward another war, Berlin made some changes to the song and it was presented by Kate Smith on her national radio show on Armistice Day in 1938.

I have included several versions of the song below.

Kate Smith in the 1943 move, This is the Army.

The lyrics displayed. Sung by Celine Dion.

Sung by Sandi Patty.

Just what is this voting by mail thing all about?

Almost a decade ago, I wrote a short story about voting. 
At the time, I had no idea the practice would become an issue on the national stage.
But since it has, I thought I would make my short story available for free ... as in, it doesn't cost you anything.
I would love to have you check it out.
