A Republican in a wheelchair entered a restaurant one afternoon and asked the waitress for a cup of coffee.
The Republican looked across the restaurant and asked, “Is that Jesus sitting over there?”
The waitress nodded “yes!”
So, the Republican requested that she give Jesus a cup of coffee, on him.
The next patron to come in was a Libertarian, with a hunched back. He shuffled over to a booth, painfully sat down, and asked the waitress for a cup of hot tea. He also glanced across the restaurant and asked, “Is that Jesus, over there?”
The waitress nodded, so the Libertarian asked her to give Jesus a cup of hot tea, “My treat.”
The third patron, to come into the restaurant, was a Democrat on crutches. He hobbled over to a booth, sat down and hollered, “Hey there honey! How’s about getting me a cold mug of Miller Light!”
He, too, looked across the restaurant and asked, “Isn’t that God’s boy over there?”
The waitress nodded, so the Democrat directed her to give Jesus a cold beer. “On my bill,” he said loudly so everyone in the restaurant could hear.
As Jesus got up to leave, he passed by the Republican, touched him and said, “For your kindness, you are healed.” The Republican felt the strength come back into his legs, got up and began to praise the Lord.
Jesus passed by the Libertarian, touched him and said, “For your kindness, you are healed.” The Libertarian felt his back straightening up, he raised his hands and he, too, began to praise the Lord.
Then, Jesus walked, with a huge smile on his face, towards the Democrat.
The Democrat jumped up and yelled, “Don’t touch me! I’m on disability!”
On a more serious note:
- Social Security Disability is being used by the Obama administration as a new form of unemployment benefits and welfare, only they don’t call it welfare. See “Social Security Disability running on empty“.
- Even the Social Security Administration admits there’s rampant disability fraud. See “Many on Social Security Disability can but don’t want to work” and Mike’s “I Could Work If I Wanted to…”
- See also “Social Security Disability will be bankrupt in 3 years” and “More Americans are on disability than the entire population of Greece“.
