alive

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 "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 but you don't have to be President to do that. Come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and rake my yard, and I'll pay you $50.

Then I'll take you to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out and you can give him the $50 to use towards food and a new house".

She thought for a few seconds and then 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
