any further explanation needed?

This is another great email that I received regarding Obama's economic policy:

This is a great way to explain the situation to everyone so THEY will understand what is going to happen.

Subject: Redistribution of wealth
Author unknown:

Today on my way to lunch I passed a homeless guy with a sign that read"Vote Obama, I need the money." I laughed. Once in the restaurant my server had on a "Obama 08" tie, again Ilaughed as he had given away his political preference--just imagine thecoincidence. When the bill came I decided not to tip the server and explained to himthat I was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept. Hestood there in disbelief while I told him that I was going toredistribute his tip to someone who I deemed more in need--the homelessguy outside. The server angrily stormed from my sight. I went outside, gave the homeless guy $10 and told him to thank theserver inside as I've decided he could use the money more. The homelessguy was grateful. At the end of my rather unscientific redistribution experiment Irealized the homeless guy was grateful for the money he did not earn,but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earneven though the actual recipient deserved money more. I guess redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow inconcept than in practical application. REDISTRIBUTION OF SOMEONE ELSE'S WEALTH, A GREAT IDEA .............. or just a fools game?

I love it! Being a part time server myself, i would be rather upset if that happened to me. Think your vote through!
