From The Inbox

This little note came today, It got a chuckle out of me so I wanted to share.

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 
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 
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.
