A $50.00 Lesson

Posted by The Wild Zimarik in General

Love it when a plan comes together ūüôā

I¬† recently asked my friend’s little girl what she wanted to be when she

grows  up. She said she wanted to be President of the United States some


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.”¬†Her

parents beamed.

“Wow….what a worthy goal,” I told¬† her.¬† “But you don’t have to wait until

you’re President to do that. You¬† can come over to my house and mow the

lawn, pull weeds, and sweep my yard, and¬† I’ll pay you $50. Then I’ll take

you 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 still aren’t speaking to¬† me.
