    The $50.00 Lesson

    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 some day.

    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

    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
