Out of the mouths of Babes
This from the Cajun
I remember the time that Catherine, one of my daughter’s friends when she was little, told me that she wanted to be President one day.
Both of her parents are liberal Democrats and were standing there with us, and I asked Catherine, “If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?”
Catherine replied, “I would give houses to all the homeless people.”
“Wow, what a worthy goal you have there, Catherine.” I told her, “You don’t have to wait until you are President to do that; you can come over to my house and clean up all the dog poop in the back yard and I will pay you $5. Then we can go over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $5 to use for a new house.”
Catherine, who was about 4, thought that over for a second, while her mom looked at me, and Catherine replied, “Why doesn’t the homeless guy come over and clean up the dog poop and you can pay him the $5.”
Welcome to Conservatism kid!
