A touching story
« on: January 31, 2013, 06:57:57 PM »
A little boy wanted $100.00 very badly and prayed for weeks, but nothing happened.

Then he decided to write God a letter requesting the $100.00.

When the postal authorities received the letter addressed to God,
USA, they decided to send it to President Obama.

Obama was so amused that he instructed his secretary to send the little
boy a $ 5.00 bill.

He thought this would appear to be a lot of money to a little boy.

The little boy was delighted with the $5.00 bill and sat down to write a
thank you note to God, which read:

Dear God,
Thank you very much for sending the money. However, I noticed that for
some reason you sent it through Washington, D.C. and that a__hole Obama took $95.00 in taxes.

Poor POTUS, always the joke of butts.  (No, I’m not dyslexic.)
