The kid "gets it"

A reader sent this. Apparently this is one of those humor pieces that's been circulating the internet.

I recently asked my friends' little girl what she wanted to be when she grew 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 rake 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.

  1. That's a very bright little girl, she must have been adopted.

    Let's hope that the current Republican congress gets it and sticks with it and starts to salvage what's left of America.

    And perhaps we should begin by keeping our natural resources for ourselves instead of selling them to Russia and China.

  4. I just have to tell this....lol. My 6 yr old son has really gotten into legos lately and is coming up with all kinds of designs on a daily basis that he shows us in infinite detail. A few weeks ago he was showing me his latest creation and I made a big deal about what a great designer he was. Well, he got all excited and began to tell me how when he grows up he's going to have a business and he's going to have a bunch of men that work for him and they are going to design things that help people. He even went so far as to talk about how long the men would work for him and that he was going to pay them a lot of money and the company would make a lot of money and be a good place to work. I listened carefully and then said, "Well, Buddy, that sounds great! And after you get the company all built and are doing really well, the democrats will come in and take all of your money away." The look on his face was so darn funny. I explained and then he said, "well, I'm just not gonna live where there aren't any democrats then!" We live in Texas. So, he called my mother and when she answered he said, "Nana, are there any democrats in Weeziana?" It just got funnier from there and finally my 8 yr old daughter, who had been listening to this whole thing intently said, "Well, when I grow up I'm just going to become president and then I'm going to put all the democrats in jail."

    Oh, to dream!!!!! :)
