I'm admitting I listen aren't I?

Thom reminds us from time to time that to repeat the same thing over and over to no result, we begin to question the sanity of the actor.

Thom, lets compare 11 point economic recovery plans, guess which one will work, which is just wishful thinking

This is actually a business charter (generallized)

1. you must be happy to work this job

2. you must want to help people

if these two elements are not present you're doomed to failure

3. You want to do things never before dreamed of.
