From the mouths of babes.

It is no secret I love politics and often talk about them around the house. I didn't realize, however, how much attention my kids pay to what is said. The other day I was driving out of the Trolley Square parking lot when we saw a man holding a sign on the street. Tracy said, "Mom, that guy needs to get a job." Now let me clarify. I am all for helping those in need and willingly donate money to organizations through whom I know money is going to give aid. That said, there are too many people milking the system. I have watched too many investigations following these so called people on the streets in need that go home to their decent houses and brag to their friends about how much money they got that day. I have also offered food to someone begging for money downtown and gotten a rotten look because I didn't have money. So, Tracy asked me once why someone was standing by the side of the road and I replied "because they need a job."
Back to the story. So, Tracy says" He needs to get a job, but President Obama doesn't think he needs a job!" I thought it was hilarious, but I know many of you will think it is awful. I am not trying to indoctrinate my children and I have never attacked anyone's character. I just differ with certain people politically. And not just democrats, if that is what you are thinking. Republicans are idiots too.
I thought this was worth writing down. The picture has absolutely nothing to do with this political rant. I just thought it was cute to see Summy and Trace working on their cars together.
