In light of the Christmas holidays right around the corner — and with all the relatives coming and all — I thought I’d give you guys a little head start on discussing politics at the family dinner table. Of course, this one is disguised in a bit of humor. If anyone takes offense, you can just sweetly smile and say, “Gee, it’s just a joke!”
Enjoi. And Merry Christmas. 🙂
From the Email Bin:
I recently asked my friends’ little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be President of the United States. 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 proudly beamed.
“Wow…what a worthy goal,” I told her. “But you don’t have to wait until you’re President to do that. Tell you what – you can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and sweep my driveway, 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. How about doing something wonderful like that?”
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 Conservative Tea Party.”
Her parents still aren’t speaking to me.
