A little boy wanted $50 very badly and prayed for weeks, but nothing happened.Finally he decided to write God a letter requesting the $50. When the postal authorities received the letter addressed to God, USA, they decided to forward it to the President of the United States as a joke. The President was so amused, that he instructed his secretary to send the little boy $30. The President thought this would appear to be a lot of money to a little boy. The little boy was delighted with the $30, and decided to write a thank you note to God, which reached the President and it read: "Dear God: Thank you very much for sending the money. However, I noticed that you sent it through the White House in Washington , DC and those donkeys deducted $20.00 for taxes , donkeys at the white house took $20 for taxes !
