The Party of Welfare? I don't Think So!
Last night when I came downstairs to make myself something to eat, I saw my dog Bud and my cat Chubs laying on the rug at the bottom of the steps looking at each other. As I walked by, they looked up at me as I walked into the kitchen. I know they were discussing something important because they only get together that close when they want to talk. So, when I was in the kitchen, I listened to hear what they were talking about. Bud seemed to be concerned that the Democrats were being labeled the party of welfare. Both of my room mates, Bud and Chubs, sleep in the same room with me at times. Chubs will even let me share my bed with her. But, now they seemed concerned that not having jobs, other than being pets, that things may change for them in light of this idea that people that are Democrats our all about welfare. My room mates know that I have never been on welfare and I have been a Democrat all my life. Now that I am retired, I guess one could say I am on welfare in that I receive money from the government. I saw no reason to bring up this point with them as I thought the best thing I could do is to keep giving them the same good care I give them every day. As for the welfare nonsense, I figured they will get over it. I don't think about it much, so perhaps they will forget about it too.
