Recent Activity  -


Presently enjoying life in the Arkansas Ozarks. Busy maintaining our place, handling current clients and political activities. I am a national writer and blogger. I have advised numerous political campaigns. I am thankful for my years in the military as they opened my eyes to the world and provided me with access to education and the opportunity to experience challenging positions.
