2012 Children's Fairy TalePosted Friday, May 11, 2012, at 10:03 AM
A former co-worker posted this yesterday on his Facebook page. It brought a smile to my face because I can hear my 3 year old grandson saying the same thing.
"A good story you can tell even your youngest child and they will know the difference between a liberal Democrat and a conservative Republican.
I remember the time that Catherine, one of my daughter Shannon'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 the Republican Party, Catherine."
It would be funny if it were not so close to today's reality of entitlements and other government give aways.
It's almost as much of a fairy tale as this video, created by Alexandra Pelosi (Nancy Pelosi's daughter) which aired on Bill Maher's TV show in March.

I was born September 17, 1949 in Caldwell, Idaho. Like Idaho's climate, I have a dry sense of humor. It may be a result of faulty genetics, but I come from sturdy stock. My great grandfather once served as a postmaster right on the line between Camas and Elmore Counties and is buried on what was once his land. According to research my only sibling has done, we generally agree that he started his westward trek in Indiana sometime after 1838 and died of pneumonia in 1911. If Google earth is correct, there are at least 2.5 million average steps between Ripley County, Indiana and his gravesite.
