Around this great country of ours, another imbalance exists. I, of course, am duty bound to point it out to those of you who may have missed it.
- The nerve of these donkeys of ours, rewarding our Internal Revenue Service employees with huge salary increases at a time like this, is incorrigible.
- The nerve of paying one of our “civil” servants to sit at home and collect her wages after she spat in the eyes of our quibblers by taking the fifth, is incorrigible.

I saw a man today
With his wife and
Very young little lady child,
Smiling as they played with one another.
How could it be?
With great wonderment
I watched this man
With his wife
With his adoring little lady child
Free from fear they gave
Each to each other
A husband to a wife
A Dad to his little lady child
As deeply as I could ever hope to be inspired
He smiled so easily as he cherished what he had
A year before as a soldier hero
This man had given almost all of what was there to give
Yet without two arms and two legs
They played together
This man, with his wife, and their little lady child.
They beamed from an inner light
Still joyful above all
With what remained
What God had not put aside.
