My Republican Father
When I lost my job last year, I was very poor for a while but managed to keep paying rent until I found a new job several months later.
My Republican dad recently asked me if I ever applied for food stamps or welfare while I was unemployed. I replied honestly that, no, I hadn't because I didn't know how. He was so proud that, even in times of trouble, I'd never asked the government for help.
What he'll never know is that, while I was jobless, I gave b******* to strangers to pay my bills.
