My neighbor’s daughter——–

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 little girl what she wanted to be when she grew up. She said she wanted  to be President someday.  Both of her  parents,       Democratic Party members, 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!”   “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 that 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, “What a great idea.  Welcome to  the Republican Party.” Her parents aren’t  speaking to me anymore, but…………………’twas well worth the lesson.

Do you  know anyone that would get  a chuckle out of this?  Shucks!!!!!!! Go for it and share   with “ others ” including your Democrat friends.
