Four hundred dollars (the price of his haircut) would buy:
- A membership to the county pool for the summer, to the zoo and museum for the whole year for my whole family.
- 80 new tshirts at Stuff Mart.
- Food for our family for two weeks
- Enough hay for our horses for four months
- 40 pairs of shoes from Payless
- 200 baby chickens !!!
- A Wacom for my daughter Anna
- A Great Dane Puppy!!!
- Wm adds: a John Deere Peg Perego Gator
- 20 pairs of $20 jeans (yes there is such a thing)
- I have never had a pedicure or manicure, and yes, I know it shows. I could have five of each.
- Dh and I could eat out 10 times.
- 40 large pizzas
- new tires for our van
- Six massages and I really need massages!!!
Oh, I could go on and on and on. And I haven't even gotten to the good stuff. Maybe, just maybe, he does a lot of charitable things and we don't hear about them. Could that be? But he did this twice, spending a total of $800. His two haircuts would have sponsored a child at CFCA for two years. Two years, that child would have food, education, a home. $800 to Food for the Poor would feed over 85 families for a month.
Okay, I know there are fabulously wealthy people out there, and $400 is a drop in the bucket to them. When running in the public eye for a public office, don't you think you'd have a little teeny bit of sensitivity to the fact that the vast majority of people out there that vote would never spend that kind of money on a haircut? That's what worries me. That lack of sensitivity bodes ill for someone that wants to run the country and spend our tax dollars. And John, it's not about the hair, bud. Get over yourself.
