Cute Little Girl Story
I was talking to a friend of mine’s little girl, and she said she wanted to be President some day. Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, 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.”
“Wow – what a worthy goal,” I told her, “but you know you don’t have to wait until you’re President to do that. You can come over to my house and mow the grass, pull weeds, and sweep my yard, and I’ll pay you $50. Then I’ll take you downtown where the homeless people hang out, and you can give them the $50 to use toward food or a new house.”
She thought that over for a few seconds, ’cause she’s only 6. And while her Mom glared at me, she looked me straight in the eye and asked, “Why don’t the homeless people come over and do the work, and you can just pay THEM the $50?” And I said, “Welcome to the Republican Party.”
Her folks still aren’t talking to me.
