$50 Dollar Lesson

I recently asked my friends' little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be President. Then 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, liberal Democrats, beamed with pride.

'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, mow the lawn, sweep walks, pull weeds, 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 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 are not speaking to me.

While I appreciate the humor expressed here (it was funny), I think it is an over simpfication of a complex issue. Yes there will always be people who will not work in a pie factory tasting pies, there are those who have bewen displaced because of the econmony and automation. Getting work is not as easy as some would have you believe. Many entry level jobs require prior experience, even unskilled manual labor jobs. Then their are those with disablities which make homelessness seem like the only optition. I think blogs like this reinforce the notion that everyone who receives assistance is a deadbeat bum trying to get over on the system. Most just want a hand up and not a hand out.
