    Clotheslines don’t keep people employed, honey!

    As we were in our backyard playing last evening, my 4½ year old Daughter asked me what the round patch of dirt was in the lawn.
    I told her it was where the clothesline pole used to be and that a clothesline was for hanging clothes out to dry instead of drying them in the dryer like we do now.

    Being an inquisitive little one, she asked me the question you OFTEN hear from little ones, “Why, Daddy?” I told her, “Because clotheslines don’t keep people employed, honey!… Coal and Gas production does!”

    True Story!

    You did not mention that people had gotten too lazy to use clotheslines?

    Of course much of our economy depends on laziness and waste.

    Yeah I have one, but I hire a lady to use it for me :)

    Still does not invalidate my points though.

    It would solve the education and unemployment problems.

    But I am for single payer health care and childhood vaccinations.

    If not hanging clothes on the clothesline, what do you have your servants do?
