Teach Your Children Well



...remember the Crosby Stills Nash & Young Song?


I remember the time that Kathryn, one of my daughter's little friends, 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 Kathryn, 'If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?'Kathryn replied, 'I would give houses to all the homeless people.''Wow, what a worthy goal you have there, Kathryn.' 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 $5.00.

Then we can go over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $5.00 to use for a new house.'

Kathryn, who was about 4, thought that over for a second while her mom looked at me, and then she replied, 'Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and clean up the dog poop and you can pay him the $5.00?'

Bingo! Welcome to the Republican Party, Kathryn.

Why is it that a child has more simple common sense than most adults. Some times no filter is best!
