critical access hospitals, such
facilities must provide 24-hour

One of my aunts is imminently
qualified for this role because she
retired from the food stamp office in

she knew the name of every person
in the county receiving government

their kitchen tables. Memorizing'Sich'
information was acutely helpful so that

they are patriotic, they will be willing.
They've endured the Great Depression,
and don't take kindly to having worked
for 60 years, only to hand over their
earnings to big banks who can't cope
and young folks who won't work.
In my Economic Stimulus Plan, all
those people who come in my office and
say, "You don't have a job.do you?...I just
need you to sign here saying I asked, so
I can get my benefits," will be dropped
from the list. I can get the retired
teachers of this community to enforce
that rule, and they will be armed with
wooden rulers which used to say, "Do

if we shouldn't just fire everybody who
