No different than the assorted Miami Cuban politicians who only care about lining their own and friends pockets along with a disaster of a Cuban run police dept has done to Miami.

A Father Daughter Talk

Submitted by Staff on Thu, 2005-11-10 19:35.

Education Humor libertarian

A young woman was about to finish her last year of

college. Like so many others her age she

considered herself to be a very liberal Democrat

and was for distribution of all wealth. She felt

deeply ashamed that her father was a rather

staunch Libertarian, which she expressed openly.

One day she was challenging her father on his

beliefs and his opposition to higher taxes on the

rich & the addition of more government welfare

programs. Based on the lectures that she had

participated in and the occasional chat with a

professor she felt that for years her father had

obviously harbored an evil, even selfish desire

to keep what he thought should be his. The self-

professed objectivity proclaimed by her professors

had to be the truth and she indicated so to her

father.

He stopped her and asked her point blank, how she

was doing in school. She answered rather haughtily

that she had a 4.0 GPA, and let him know that it

was tough to maintain. That she studied all the

time, never had time to go out and party like

other people she knew. She didn't even have time

for a boyfriend and didn't really have many

college friends because of spending all her time

studying. That she was taking a more difficult

curriculum.

Her father listened and then asked, "How is your

good friend Mary doing?" She replied, "Mary is

barely getting by." She continued, "She barely has

a 2.0 GPA," adding, "and all she takes are easy

classes and she never studies. But Mary is so very

popular on campus, college for her is a blast,

she goes to all the parties all the time and very

often doesn't even show up for classes because she

is too hung over."

Her father then asked his daughter, "Why don't you

go to the Dean's office and ask him to deduct a

1.0 off your 4.0 GPA and give it to your friend

who only has a 2.0." He continued, "That way you

will both have a 3.0 GPA and certainly that would

be a fair and equal distribution of GPA."

The daughter visibly shocked by her father's

suggestion angrily fired back, "That wouldn't be

fair! I worked really hard for mine, I did witho

ut and Mary has done little or nothing, she played

while I worked real hard!"

The father slowly smiled, winked hugged his

daughter and said, "Welcome to the Conservative

side of the fence!".
