And it will be earned by entrepreneurs and it will be earned by small businesses.
It doesn't bother meThat less than brimming is my cup.
Today is crowned with great success!Look at me! I'm up!My first blessing of the day:I'm up!I'm up, and I'm sober;And if nothing of the good happensFor the rest of the day,Before I put my head on a pillow tonight,I can say,'Thank you God, for those two blessings.'
My case is a species of madness, only that it is a derangement of the Volition, and not of the intellectual faculties.
The difficulty for Mr. Obama will be when the public sees where his decisions lead - higher inflation, higher interest rates, higher taxes, sluggish growth, and a jobless recovery.
What the president announced yesterday, is that somehow magically, if we just continue to prime the pump of taxpayer dollars, we're going to see magically an economic recovery.
But if, if you take a look at what would have happened, I mean, do we need to see soup lines down the street to figure out what would have happened? We avoided - and all economists will tell you that millions of jobs were saved because of the Recovery Act, and we avoided a second Great Depression. That, that is a reality.
But my activities have been pretty much focused in the last almost 30 years on the recovery, of my own recovery, the understanding for my family of my recovery.
Drugs are not always necessary, but belief in recovery always is.
I feel that any form of so called psychotherapy is strongly contraindicated for addicts. The question Why did you start using narcotics in the first place? should never be asked. It is quite as irrelevant to treatment as it would be to ask a malarial patient why he went to a malarial area.
It is not heroin or cocaine that makes one an addict, it is the need to escape from a harsh reality. There are more television addicts, more baseball and football addicts, more movie addicts, and certainly more alcohol addicts in this country than there are narcotics addicts.
Meetings are spoken of only minimally in the A.A. big book and the book
In this country, don't forget, a habit is no damn private hell.
There's no solitary confinement outside of jail. A habit is hell for those you love. And in this country it's the worst kind of hell for those who love you.
We start believing that someone knows how we feel, and let them overrule our judgments so we will take action. The beginning is when a person partakes of one alcoholic talking to another alcoholic to help them reduce their feelings of difference at least enough so that they will begin to take actions they do not yet believe in. When that moment comes, sobriety begins.
To possess your soul in patience, with all the skin and some of the flesh burnt off your face and hands, is a job for a boy compared with the pains of a man who has lived pretty long in the exhilarating world that drugs or strong waters seem to create and is trying to live now in the first bald desolation created by knocking them off.
Sobriety is a journey
Treating mental illness saves all of us money.
Take addiction. We heard testimony that for every dollar spent on addiction treatment, we save $7. That
I see harm reduction as a way of engaging people as part of that path to recovery.
Every month that we do not have an economic recovery package 500 million Americans lose their jobs.
I don't want to go negative on Franklin Delano Roosevelt, but he didn't pass an economic deal in the first 100 days. We have passed the largest Recovery Act in the history of the country.
The Recovery plan will put money in the pockets of the American worker, create and save millions of new jobs and invest in crucial areas such as health care, education, energy independence and a new infrastructure.
You know, I think the, the crucial thing, you know, we have put in place what is, is just simply the biggest, boldest recovery package in history, right; the stimulus package, biggest ever; the financial rescue, absolutely comprehensive; a housing plan - that is incredible medicine for the economy. And we fully expect it to work.
The government can help, but we need to make this transition now to a recovery led by private investment, private.
There's no recovery on Main Street, I can tell you that for sure.
And in a re - in an economy like this, we don't need to be raising anybody's taxes.
