    I just noticed an interesting thing in my yard. I threw in a dead snake for the chickens, and while some were wondering what it is, a big brown hen ran up grabbed the snake and ran off. then she's running in circles trying to avoid other chickens stealing it from her. and a thought occured to me. she just does not want to be taxed. are my other chickens liberal minded and is the big hen with the snake a conservative, or is there more to this circus then it seems?

    Send that chicken over to my yard, copperheads are-a-plenty this year and the hot weather just puts them in a bad mood.
    Why the one under the house lunged at me just for looking close at him. Poor snakes are still slower than this old man.

    Maybe your analagy is illogical and you could use a better example. Try the reversing the statement and seeing if it is factual. If not, then it is a logical falacy of not being the truth.

    Logic is a scientific art to tell if someone is telling the truth.

    What analagy? I just posted a quick story that happened in my yard and how it reminds me of tax collection and fear of paying them. nothing more nothing less.

    I think your chicken is a liberal, who took the snake as taxes, and the rest of the liberal chickens are trying to get their share as entitlements.

    Or your chicken is the Defense Department getting the annual appropriations, and the other chickens are the "contractors" looking for their chunk of the bacon.

    All kinds of silly shit can be made up from the simple story of chickens chasing a snake.

    my idea is the the big red hen is the 1%, keeping away food and necessities that the common person also needs.

    I think the snake is a trojan horse and the big chicken is a rooster in wolf's clothing.

    What would a conservative chicken have done?
