What, the gift shop didn't have a t-shirt, shorts and little sandals? There aren't any stores nearby? And you don't bring a change of clothing for a toddler? I always had a change of clothes in the car for mine.

Besides, who spends over 50 dollars for a pair of shoes for a toddler?

And, by the way, most of the liberals I know don't have the money to blow that much on a pair of baby shoes. They'd just see it as part of nature, wash the shoes off, and go on their granola way. The conservatives I know, on the other hand, would be horrified that their kid didn't look as perfect and flawless as they like to pretend they are, and demand to know why the city wasn't paying someone to patrol the area to make sure that dog poop wasn't left for them to step in.

[QUOTE who="jeepsterwannabeI haven't met any conservatives who think that the government owes them every thing they need. Now liberals on the other hand are begging for universal healthcare and any other handout they can think of.[/QUOTE]

No, the conservatives don't expect it from the gov't. But they expect special treatment from everyone around them.(Like being reimbursed for letting their spawn step in doo doo.)

While I'll admit that most of the liberals I know are looking for a solution to health care (and so are the cons, but won't admit it), they are NOT looking for handouts. In fact, they are the folks giving the handouts in any way they can.
