My company hosts a canned food drive every year. The company is broken up into teams and we gather non-parishable items to give to some charity (I want to say Salvation Army but don't quote me on that.) Anyway, the idea is that with competition you can get more people involved, but the only incentive is bragging rights.
Don't get me wrong, this is for a good cause...at least on the surface. Yes, because of Eeeevil Bush and this damned Bush economy, there are people who do not have a place to live or food to eat. Of course, this is never
an issue when Democrats are in office. And thank God we elected one just in time. Could you imagine another four years of homeless people getting drunk on mouthwash? That's one hell of a hangover!
Someone approached me and whester
asking us if we were planning on donating food this year. He said he had to balance his checkbook. I told the gal that was asking to Hope for Change. She said, "You're going to be a team player and donate something?" "We can only hope." I replied.
So I'm going to find the biggest picture of Lord and Savior Barack Obama the Most Merciful to put in the box. The proud recipient of this item will receive something better than a can of beans to be quickly consumed and forgotten--they will be getting the message of Hope and Change. Yes, We Can Hope for Change...but it will have to wait until January 20.
