This is a good place to inform fellow hunters about bills and other legislation that may jeopardize our rights to hunt and free cast our hounds.

"Redistribution Of Wealth Concept"

Post by Keystone Kid » Sun Oct 26, 2008 12:15 pm

Today on my way to lunch I passed a homeless guy with a sign that read...Vote Obama, I need the money. I laughed.

Once in the restaurant my server had on a Obama 08 tie, again I laughed as he had given away his political preference. Just imagine the coincidence.

When the bill came I decided not to tip the server and explained to him that I was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept. He stood there in disbelief while I told him that I was going to redistribute his tip to someone who, I deemed, more in need.......The homeless guy outside. The server angrily stormed from my sight, spouting unmentionables.

I went outside, gave the homeless guy $10 and told him to thank the server inside as I've decided he could use the money more. The homeless guy was grateful.

At the end of my rather unscientific redistribution experiment I realized the homeless guy was grateful for the money he did not earn, but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earn, even though the actual recipient deserved money more, because he apparently had less...right??
I guess redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow in concept than in practical application.

* I also enjoy helping future hunters.
