Redistribution of Wealth Experiment

Posted by: Rob Bluey In: Politics

Red Arrow Diner, Manchester, NH 5/19/07,

This e-mail forward was sent to me this morning. Very rarely do I find these educational, this was a very clever demonstration of Barack Obama's plan to "spread the wealth around."

In a local restaurant my server had on a "Obama 08″ tie, again I laughed as he had given away his political preferencejust 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 needthe homeless guy outside. The server angrily stormed from my sight.

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.

I guess redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow in concept than in practical application.

John, I have sent this ‘Redistribution of Wealth experiment’ to several liberal friends. Actually, the number of liberal friend I have has diminished during this election. Obama instructed his supporters to get in the face of Independents, which I was, but these little jerks are just obnoxious, uninformed, robots.

Ask why they are voting for Obama, and they say they want change, but cannot define anything definitive, and there can be no discussion of merit. I am actual proof to Obama that change is possible, but I doubt it is the change he meant.

They were robots for him and all of his associates. It was like the left-wing illuminati sent a script out to the people who volunteered to campaign for them.
