The $50 Lesson

$50 Lesson

I recently asked my friends' little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up...

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 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 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.

"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those
who are willing to work, and give it to those who will not."
Thomas Jefferson

When you started the I thought she was going to be told an even more powerful lesson-- that if she puts $50 into savings on a regular basis, by the time she's old enough to be president she will have enough money to buy a house and feed a lot of homeless people. This is probably the best lesson a young person can get about money, and I don't think they're getting it. Hell, holds true for too many adults too.
