The $50 Lesson

Educate yourselves.


I recently asked my friend’s daughter what she wanted to be when she grows
up. 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.” 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 floors, 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.”
