The General Election 41 Post

I've been thinking and thinking if I should write a post about my thoughts (and feelings) regarding the current federal election. And then my Dad sent me a joke yesterday and I thought "why not break the blog-ice with this one?" So here we go with a good old fashioned Canadian political joke:

I asked my friend's little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up.

She said she wanted to be Prime Minister of Canada some day. Both of

her parents, NDP supporters, were standing there, so I asked her, "If you

were Prime Minister what would be the first thing you would do?"

She replied, "I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people." Her

parents beamed, and said, "Welcome to the NDP Party!"

"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 toward 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 Conservative Party." Her parents still aren't speaking to

me.
