Since the federal system of redistribution of the wealth has proclaimed itself to be god and the people want something for nothing, medical help is badly needed.
This appeal is especially to my own Senator, Dr. Frist, (sounds like 'frisk'0 who is first in medicine, first in cure, first in the hearts of the leeches.) What a saviour!
The medical help we need is a pill to cause folks to love to do manual labor. I personally dread hanging the sheets out to dry or cleaning out the dishwasher. My husband dreads raking the leaves and loves reclining in the La-Z-Boy talking to me while I cook supper, which is really a chore. This wonder drug could also be administered to our Congressmen and their staff who would be transformed into cleaning the yard at the White House and painting the walls and cleaning the bathrooms, instead of passing stupid laws to get their good friends jobs.This pill would also be mandatory for university professors who will no longer play sandbox studying the wings of a caterpillar with public money. In fact this pill must cause one to revolt at the thought of living off public money.
We know that with Congress all things are possible and that it is hard to get someone to work at menial tasks and just do continual boring work and since medicine has become the cure-all, I expect this pill to be a help "for the children."
What a revolutionary concept! Martin Luther (not the one you have heard about on the TV) said that there was a certain religious class in Germany who should be put out to manual labor. His remedy would lower the ruling class to the working class. There was to be no welfare.
The remedy that Governor William Bradford executed was certainly Scriptural: "If you don't work, you shall not eat." This marvelous cure was vastly successful and when each man was given such a charge over his own property and stomach, it is wonderful how the people learned to work. Hunger has a way of moving the bones around. Especially when your Governor's name was Bradford. No one starved, but all went to work.
In 1864, Rev. L. W. Brinckerhoff, Presbyterian preacher, wrote "Advice to Freedmen." He said that there had been a great price paid for the Negro to be free. Thus he must "be industrious, economical, truthful and honest, temperate, guard the family relation, provide for your family, educate yourself, educate your children, be punctual, provide your own schools, support the Gospel, take care of your sick poor, respect one another, and be good citizens, because there was among you young men who would not give up their strength to labor. Play, yes, but not to labor.
Now that there is no discrimination but all races are on The Check, either administering it or receiving it, The Booklet as it came to us is covered in a Watkins Sasparilla wrapper. it is time to eat this little book. It will be a tough pill to swallow, but it will make you really well. It is a sure cure for laziness. But it's not free unless you ask.
