$50.00 For the Homeless

Taken from Patriot Humor:


I recently asked my friend's 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 homeless guys hang out, and you can give them the $50, you earned, 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.

Oh I love this, Pam!!! Especially the fact the parents are still not speaking to you. Fair weather friends I'd say.

I love it! The Bible even says we need to be as "little children". From the mouths of babes comes such wisdom.

OH NO! You actually ticked off a liberal? Well God Bless you!

Not just lurking today. Had to comment. The truth hurts! Now, please tell all the little boys and girls this. It should be taught along side "tolerance, diversity and political correctness".
