Why My Liberal Neighbors Aren’t Speaking To Me Anymore
I recently asked my neighbors’ little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be President some day. Both of her parents, are liberal Democrats, were standing there, so I asked her, ‘If you were President 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 with pride.
’Wow…what a worthy goal.’ I told her, ‘But you don’t have to wait until you’re President to do that! You can come over to my house and 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, (*or to the neighbor who hasn't had a job in a year; or to the student who is getting ready to go to college, etc etc) and 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 (*ORthe unemployed man, OR the Student) come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50? ‘
I said, ‘Welcome to Conservatism.’
Her parents still aren’t speaking to me

*My additions, lest you think that I think that the homeless guy is just too lazy to get a job....I don't)
Have all of my fellow Republicans been following the primaries like I have?
I doubt it.
The state of our country has been weighing heavily on my mind, and so I have immersed myself in political news every day. It's driving my kids batty, I know. But they don't really understand what I have seen these past few years, the radical changes and disregard for the Constitution.
Whatever your ideas and opinions about Mitt Romney may be, these photos will bring to life the real person that he is. I am going to support him 100% (of course) and I hope that you all will, too.
Our family began July 9, 1982, the day we were married in the Seattle, WA temple. Now 7 children and 8 grandchildren later, where did the time go? Life has been sweet, with many more good times than bad. We sure have great kids and are so proud of our grandkids! They are so adorable, and it is fun watching our family continue to grow...
