As we all know, Art Linkletter would say ... "Kid's Say the Darndest Things". He based his early TV show on asking questions of young children and having them respond with their thoughts on what they were seeing and perceiving from their surroundings. They are the most innovative and honest of all people while they are developing their picture of life through a not yet mature mind.

When I got the following in an email recently from one of my friends, I thought it was probably an email that should be shared with all, but particularly with our ideological, liberal Obama supporters. Perhaps some will possibly 'see the light'. Most of the following is copied from the email I received.


"The kids filed excitedly into their classroom on Monday morning. Their weekend assignment was to sell any item they wanted and present a short review of their productive salesmanship to their peers.

Little Sally led off ... "I sold girl scout cookies and I made $30.00'", she said proudly. "My sales approach was to appeal to the customer's civic spirit and I credit that approach for my obvious success". "Very good", said the teacher. Sally sat down.

Little Lisa was next ... "I sold magazines" she said. "I made $45.00 by explaining to everyone that magazines would keep them up on current events better that any other source". "Very good" said the teacher, and Lisa took her seat.

Eventually, it was little Johnny's turn. The teacher held her breath ...

Johnny walked to the front of the classroom carrying a large box. He dumped the contents of the box on the teacher's desk. "$2,467" he said. Cried the teacher, "What in the world were you selling?". "Toothbrushes and mouthwash", Johnny replied. "Toothbrushes and mouthwash?", the teacher queried. "How could you possibly have sold enough toothbrushes and mouthwash to make that much money?".

"I found the busiest corner in town", said little Johnny. "I set up a dip & chip stand and I gave everyone who walked by a free sample. Without exception, each one turned to me and said this tastes like dog poop!". Then I would say, "It is dog poop. Wanna buy a toothbrush and a small cup of mouth wash?

He continued, "I used the President Obama method of giving them something sh***y, dressing it up so it looks good and sounds good, telling them it's free, and then making them pay dearly to get the bad taste out of their mouths"."

Anyone with a miniscule set of brain cells and a hint of honesty can see from the story that we have actually witnessed this method in action over this administration's last three years ... ObamaCare, the green energy thrust, the environmental movement, and on and on. If re-elected, Obama is bound to force us into even more programs with a bad taste such as cap and trade, the lessening of status as a world power, the destruction of our currency, the bankruptcy of our nation, etc., etc. There are many more that could be added, if we still somehow manage to exist.
