A “little” political Humor

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 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 driveway, 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.

Okay,…so it is kind of a cheesy little joke, but I thought someone might read it and get at least one smile out of it.
Besides, I am out of thoughts at the moment and maybe tomorrow might bring something new to think on.
Oh,…and one more thing. How does eveyone feel about the overturn on Proposition 8 in Cal-I-forn-I-A? Do you even care?

    I hope you told her that the homeless guy might have some underlying mental health issues, may have been abused severely as a child, and that we aren’t all just cogs in a money making machine that ignores the fact that we’re fucking people. And I hope when you welcomed her to the Republicans you told her that her duty would be to attack the bad use of tax payers money on healthcare, and instead choosing to fund right winged terrorists in Latin America and using a national tragedy as a pretext for a totally unjust war? That would be nice…

      Actually, it was just a joke on both sides…. and if in particular commenting I were to really address the issue and not joke around about it, I might be inclined to agree with some of what you say. I am not a politician. Mostly politics and What we call “religion” today, to me is a joke. So, I find it hard not to pick at it jokingly.
