Are You Smarter Than A Six Year Old?

This evening I was with my kid and we stopped at the bank.  I had a check to deposit and then I needed some cash.

As we drove away from the drive through ATM the young lad asked me, “Daddy, how much money did you get?”  I replied, “One hundred dollars.”

He scrunched his little face and asked if that was 2 bills?  When I told  him that it wasn’t, rather five bills; $20 bills each.

He then asked if he could have one.  When I answered that, indeed, he couldn’t, he grew a little frustrated.  “But daddy, I don’t have ANY money and you would STILL have 80 bucks!  You would STILL have more money than I would.”

It struck me how parallel his argument is with the liberals in government.

  1. And by not giving him any money, you are keeping him dependent on you. Clearly you have created a slave state where this other person can’t be truly free because of your economic domination.

    Or maybe this is a really stupid analogy.

      Yes. As long as my son doesn’t look for work, I sustain him with the entitlement programs of free food, shelter, clothing and education.

      In related news, my wife DID give him his 20 bucks. He voted her parent of the year!

      It is silly and simplistic, but I couldn’t pass up the parallel logic between the kid and those who think taxing the wealthy simply because they have more wealth and can afford it.
