$50 lesson

Recently, while I was shoveling snow in my driveway,
my neighbors stopped to chat as they returned home from walking their dog.

During our friendly conversation, I asked their little girl what she wanted to be when she grew up. She said she wanted to be President someday.

Both of her parents, Democratic Party members, were standing there so
I asked her,
"If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?"

She replied… "I’d give food and houses to all the homeless people."

Her parents beamed with pride! "Wow…what a worthy goal!"

I said…"But you don’t have to wait until you’re President to do that!"

"What do you mean?" she replied.

So I told her, "You can come over to my house shovel the snow out of my drive way and I’ll pay you $50. Then you can go over to the grocery
store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use
toward food and a new house." She thought that over for a few seconds,
then she looked me straight in the eye and asked,

"Why doesn’t the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay
him the $50?"

I said, "Welcome to the Republican Party."

Her parents aren’t speaking to me anymore.

  2. I’ve seen this before. It has always felt to flippant to me but I didn’t have a good comeback. Then I saw this: http://www.empowermentplan.org/ I would like to see more republicans and democrats get behind projects like this.

      I did not post this for the politics but because I thought it was funny. 🙂
