    ANT and the GRASSHOPPER.

    Exaggerated ? I don't think so.

    THE STORY ISN'T THAT MUCH DIFFERENT FROM REALITY, OR THE PREDICTION OF IT !!!

    THE ANT AND THE
    GRASSHOPPER

    This one is a little different...... Two Different Versions....
    .............. Two Different Morals

    OLD VERSION

    The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building
    his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

    The grasshopper thinks the ant is a
    fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away..

    Come winter, the ant is warm
    and well fed.

    The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he
    dies out in the cold.

    MORAL OF THE STORY: Be
    responsible for yourself!

    MODERN
    VERSION

    The ant works hard
    in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and
    laying up supplies for the winter.

    The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool
    and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

    Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press
    conference and demands to know why the ant should be
    allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving.

    CBS, NBC , PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to
    provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a
    video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.

    America is stunned by the sharp contrast.

    How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed
    to suffer so?

    Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody
    cries when they sing, 'It's Not Easy Being Green...'

    ACORN stages a demonstration in front of the ant's house
    where the news stations film the group singing, "We
    shall overcome." Then Rev. Jeremiah
    Wright has the group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper's
    sake.

    President Obama condemns
    the ant and blames
    President Bush, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the
    Pope for the grasshopper's plight.

    Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the ant has gotten
    rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both
    call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make
    him pay his fair share.

    Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity &
    Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of
    the summer.

    The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to
    pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar and given
    to the grasshopper.

    The story ends as we see the grasshopper and his free-loading
    friends finishing up the last bits of the ant's food while the government house he is
    in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant's old house,
    crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn’t
    maintain it.

    The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.

    The grasshopper is found
    dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over
    by a gang of spiders who terrorize the ramshackle, once prosperous
    and once peaceful, neighborhood.

    The entire Nation collapses bringing the rest of the free world with it.
    MORAL OF THE
    STORY: Be careful how you vote in 2010.

    I like it.

    It has a ring of truth about it.

    I can understand how a jaded all-knowing wannabe pundit may feel that way.

    OK, It is OLD. And, it is OBVIOUS.

    But, it is also TRUE !!!!

    And, some are not as sophisticated and blase know-it-all bozos such as you.

    WTF (WHY the Fuck) do you think there are so many Obamarrhhoidal Liberrhoids around ?

    Of course, the majority of the Obamarrhoidal Liberrhoids on this Forum happen to be the Loonie Commie/Marxist MAIN political base of the semi-Black Political Charlatan......however, there is always the possibility that some aren't.
