Helping the Homeless: Conservative vs Liberal (and Progressive) Principles

Fred Thompson and Hillary were walking down the street when they came to a homeless person.

The Republican, Fred Thompson, gave the homeless person his business card and told him to come to his office for a job. He then took $20 out of his pocket and gave it to the homeless person to use to get a haircut/shave, get cleaned up and wash his clothes to report for work.

Hillary was very impressed, so when they came to another homeless person, she decided to help. She walked over to the homeless person and gave him directions to the welfare office. She then reached into Thompson's pocket and got out $20. She kept $15 for her administrative fees and gave the homeless person $5.

Now, do you understand the difference?

Hat Tip: Bill F.

I agree with the Hilary part of this scenario but not the Thompson part. Thompson would be more apt to force the police to jail the homeless person for breaking an anti-pandering law, costing the taxpayers even more than than the welfare payout, but at least the bum would be out of sight.

This used to be one of several political commentary blogs I ran until I got tired of updating several blogs, and consolidated them on Thunder Pig, and moved the group blogs to a Ning network.

These photos are a reflection of where I am throughout the day, and a celebration of life west of the Balsam mountain range in western North Carolina.
