      Ginny….huh…I knew Tyson had written Someday Soon & lots of other good songs, but wasn’t aware that he had himself been a rodeo rider.

      Someday Soon … my parents were right: he did leave my crying, and I never did go with him. But I did love him. Alas, he loved thad damned old rodeo more than he did love me.
      But one or the other of us was always leaving on a jet plane …

      Chicago and mob connected to Dassault’s military with Cheney & Rove.
      This led to Zetas infiltration of Washington with ” Starz”.
      Horsea followed with ” Ted Tots” and Texas NRA- IRA- PLO.
      Which led to a billion dollar empire with physicians looking for organs harvests.
      They called it Jestocco – Jezdynamite with ” The Rocce”.
      Needless to say, half of Hollywood is into ” LA Seas”.
      They call ” Playdota”.

    10. Sgt. Mom Says:

      Ok – I think we’ve trapped the most incoherent and off-topic spammer EVAH! in the coment from Eadiitorl Dlihget. And I’ve seen some insane ones in my time …

      I was wondering about that but thought he had some insight that I didn’t ….
