The $50.00 Lesson

.

THE $50 LESSON


I recently asked my friends’ little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up.

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

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 & 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 & mow the lawn, pull the weeds & sweep the driveway & I will pay you $50. Then I’ll take you over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out & you can give him the $50 to use toward food & a new house.”

She thought it over for a few seconds, then looked me straight in the eye & said, “Why doesn’t the homeless guy come over & do the work & you can just pay him the $50?”

I said, “Welcome to the Republican Party.”

Her parents still aren’t talking to me.
