work ethic

my mom just emailed me this forward and i had to post it. LOL so cute! i don’t do politics. i don’t like to talk about it. or debate it. but i did think this was FUNNY! and it’s more about the concept of working and how i feel about this “economic crisis” we are in… 

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 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.
