Yesterday on my way to lunch I saw a homeless guy outside the restaurant with a sign that read 'Vote Obama, I need the money.' I chuckled to myself. Once in the restaurant, I noticed my server had on an 'Obama 08' button. He was a very friendly and clean-cut young man with good skills. Again I chuckled as I started to create my plan. When the bill came I explained to my server that I was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept. He stood there in disbelief while I explained to him that I was going to redistribute his tip to someone who, I deemed, to be more in need - the homeless guy outside. The server angrily stormed away. I went outside, gave the homeless guy $5 and told him to thank the server inside as I've decided he could use the money more. The homeless guy was grateful. At the end of my redistribution experiment, I realized 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 earn, even though the actual recipient may have needed the money more. What does this experiment prove? Not much to me, but it obviously makes sense to Obama.
