I stole this its good

The $50.00 Lesson

Recently, while I was working in the flower beds in front 
yard, my neighbors stopped to chat as they returned home 
from walking their dog. 

During our friendly conversation, I asked their 12 year old 
daughter what she wanted to be when she grows up.

She said she wanted to be President some day.
Both of her parents who are Socialists 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!" I told her.

 "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 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  aren't speaking to me, anymore.
