A Funny

Stolen from Charming Just Charming:
A young teenage girl was about to finish her first year of college. She considered herself to be a very liberal Democrat but her father was a rather staunch Republican.

One day she was challenging her father on his beliefs and his opposition to taxes and welfare programs. He stopped her and asked her how she was doing in school.

She answered that she had a 4.0 GPA but it was really tough. She had to study all the time, and she never had time to go out and party. She didn't have time for a boyfriend and didn't really have many college friends because of spending all her time studying.

He asked, "How is your friend Mary?" She replied that Mary was barely getting by. She had a 2.0 GPA and never studied. She was very popular on campus and went to parties all the time. She often didn't show up for classes because she was hung over.

Dad then asked his daughter why she didn't go to the Dean's office and have 1.0 taken off her 4.0 and give it to her friend with the 2.0. That way they would both have a 3.0 GPA.

The daughter angrily fired back, "That wouldn't be fair! I worked really hard for mine and Mary has done nothing."

The father slowly smiled and said, "Welcome to the Republican Party."

Well, gosh - I just hate to stir things up...

But it's actually more like saying the daughter has a 4000.0 GPA and her friend has a 2.0 because her teacher doesn't like her parents. Just because people are poor doesn't mean they don't work hard.

Okay, done.

Yeah, sure. ;)

The flip side to this however, is if someone is poor because they didn't want to work, they shouldn't expect someone else to pay their way.

Oh, by the way, welcome!
