in America has taught me to never give up. Thanks to that
attitude, and America's Medicare system, I have recovered quite well
from my devastating brain hemorrhage about three years ago.
Medicare paid for the best of medical attention and therapy. Every
American doctor I've visited has been polite, considerate, and
proficient. The American economic system based on our forefathers'
free enterprise structure backed up by Constitutional Law surely allows
anyone -- regardless of race, creed, religion, age, or gender -- with a
good idea and the energy and determination to pursue it to
prosper. I might add that the American way is worth fighting for.
|One day a happy-go-lucky millionaire, the next day, a stroke -
such is life.|
answer to these pusillanimous peace-niks, I quote one of our
forefathers: John Stewart Mill.
|When the going gets tough, the tough get going.|
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of
things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling,
which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person
who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more
important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature
and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions
of better [persons] than himself."
A heart-felt thanks to all of my friends, clients, and vendors who
stood behind me during my disabling stroke and allowed me the prosperity
that I enjoy today. I know that I am going to forget some
names. If you notice your name missing and you deserve to be on it, drop me a
line and I'll get it added. Eventually, when I feel this list is
complete, I plan on having it turned into a bronze plaque and put on my
building at the dedication.

dedication plaque on the new building.|
