Out of the mouths of babes

This morning a grandkid said that we weren't very lucky.  Why is that I asked?  "Because the government doesn't give us money."


I had to figure out how to properly answer this question - I don't have a beef with government employees who work hard for us citizens of the state. I do have a problem with people expecting handouts - something for nothing.  I told him that we don't want the government to give us money.  If they do they have to take it from someone else.  Who should the government take it from if they are going to give it to us?  His response, "You mean THEY STEAL it from other people?"  He is a quick learner.
