$50 Lesson

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.
