"Wow...what a  worthy goal!" I told  her.

I continued, "But you don't have to wait  until you're Prime Minister to  do that.  You can come over to my house, 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.  You can give him the $50 to  use for 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 smiled and said, "Welcome to the Liberal  Party."

Her parents still aren't speaking to  me.
