A $50 Lesson

A look at how we all view things differently.  It made me laugh.

 

I recently asked my friends' little girl 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 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.
