“Vote Obama, I need the money”

Income redistribution? Not my with money, motherf*****r! This is from an MSNBC forum referenced on The Schnitt Show today:

Today on my way to lunch I passed a homeless guy with a sign that read “Vote Obama, I need the money.” I laughed.
Once in the restaurant my server had on a “Obama 08” tie, again I laughed as he had given away his political preference–just imagine the coincidence.
When the bill came I decided not to tip the server and explained to him that I was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept. He stood there in disbelief while I told him that I was going to redistribute his tip to someone who I deemed more in need–the homeless guy outside. The server angrily stormed from my sight.
I went outside, gave the homeless guy $10 and told him to thank the server inside as I’ve decided he could use the money more. The homeless guy was grateful.
At the end of my rather unscientific redistribution experiment I realized the homeless guy was grateful for the money he did not earn, but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earn even though the actual recipient needed money more.
I guess redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow in concept than in practical application.

It most certainly is…

  1. First they took the money belonging to the giant corporation and I did not speak out because I’m not among the shareholders of a giant corporation.
    Then they took the money from the old rich, but I did not speak out because I am far removed from the families of the old rich.
    Then they came for the money of the new rich, but I did not speak out because I am not rich.
    Then they came for the money of the middle class, and I did not speak out as I have less than that.
    Then they came for me…
    You gave that server a valuable lesson should he choose to learn.
    Brilliant G. Way to go.
