I thought this was funny. I found it on My Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. It came from one of those chain e-mails. I swear, I need to get some conservative friends because I never get any of this stuff.

“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 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 over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him 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 doesn’t the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?’ And I said, ‘Welcome to the Republican Party.’ Her folks still aren’t talking to me.”

Monday’s are very busy for me, but I hope to get a couple of posts that I have been working on published later today.

Happy Monday!

  1. You don’t have to be a Republican to believe people should work if they can. That’s obviously a gross oversimplification. Also, who ‘sweeps’ a yard?

  2. I loved the story! Very good in deed. In response to the previous comment, I agree that you don’t have to be a Republican to believe people should work if they can. But you missed the whole point of the story. Democrats either believe, or at one time believed, in using taxpayer money to fund programs (like welfare) that support lazy people who don’t even care to lift a finger to make their own money and rely on the government to pay them for being useless. Either way, if the shoe fits, wear the damned thing!

  3. Thanks for stopping by our watercooler and thank you for the shout out!


  4. Oh, the Canine Party is getting ready to have their convention. Could be good for a laugh if I can get the stupid thing finished.

    Take care!
