During his stump speech in Middletown the other night, CD 12 candidate Scott Sipprelle told a touching story of his formative years. Of how he learned personal responsibility from his father, which lead to his Wall Street success and is pertinent to our current situation in Washington.
Scott recounted that the time as a young boy he approached his father and asked for an allowance. "What's an allowance?" Scott said was his father's reply. "It's money that parents give to kids so that they can buy things."
"I have a better idea," said Dudley, the wise foreign service officer. "Why don't you make all the money you want to by picking up bottles on the street and returning them to the stores for the nickel deposits." At that moment Scott Sipprelle became a capitalist.
Who knew that they give back nickel deposits to American kids on bottles in Istanbul?
