A CHEAP AND ENCOURAGING LESSON

Recently, while I was working in the flower beds in the front yard, my neighbors stopped  to chat as they returned home from walking their dog. During our friendly  conversation, I asked their 12-year old daughter what she wanted to be when she  grows up. She said she wanted to be President someday.

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 with  pride!
 
“Wow…what a worthy goal!” I said. “But you don’t have to wait  until you’re President to do that!” I told her.
  
“What   do you mean?” she replied.

So I told her, “You can come over to my house  and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and trim my hedge, and I’ll pay you $50. Then you  can go 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 aren’t speaking to me any more.

About josiahe

Watching closely, working to understand all I may, in this "Age of Information", even from my limited view, I can see much of what's going on ..... and I oft see it's going to impact all of us which is why I share it. My focus is to expose evil, and to serve my Lord and savior Jesus in whatever way He shows me. If one waits long enough, better writers will come along and comment; it's just that I have so little patience with the evil that lurks among us and I've wasted so much time and now, there is so little left! WELCOME!
