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 OLD 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'


Occupy the Anthill stages
a demonstration in front of the ant's house where the news stations film the

Green Lives Matter group singing, We shall overcome.


Then Reverend Al Sharpton
has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper
while he damns the ants. He later appears on MSNBC to complain that rich people do not care.


Former President Obama condemns the ant
and blames
Donald Trump, President Bush 43, President Bush 41, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the
Pope

for the grasshopper's
plight.


Nancy Pelosi & Chuck Schumer
exclaim in an interview on The View
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, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 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 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 2020.

because they wouldn't
understand it!

Aesop would approve of the update. As a reflection of the current state of affairs, of course, not as the way things should be.

Here's an oldie that still applies, and accurately captures the insanity of the Democrats/Leftists:

Here's the thing: the Leftists, the totalitarians are not rational, they are like the scorpion in the fable:

A scorpion, which cannot swim, asks a frog to carry it across a river on the frog's back. The frog hesitates, afraid of being stung by the scorpion, but the scorpion argues that if it did that, they would both drown. The frog considers this argument sensible and agrees to transport the scorpion. Midway across the river, the scorpion stings the frog anyway, dooming them both. The dying frog asks the scorpion why it stung the frog despite knowing the consequence, to which the scorpion replies: "I couldn't help it. It's in my nature."
