THE NEW ANT and the Grasshopper

THE NEW ANT and the Grasshopper, Two Versions:
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
Kermit the Frog appears
On Oprah
With the grasshopper
And everybody cries when they sing, 'It's Not EasyBeing Green ...'

Occupy the Anthill stages
A demonstration in front of the ant's
House where the news stations film the SEIU group singing, We shall overcome.

Then Rev Al Sharpton's assistant
Has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper
While he damns the ants. The Reverend Al can not attend as he has contractual commitments to appear on his MSNBC show for which he is paid over two million dollars a year to complain that rich people do not care.

President Obama condemns the ant
And blames
President Bush 43, President Bush 41, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the
Pope
For the grasshopper's
Plight…..


Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid
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
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 2014 and 2016.

'tis the truth that will set you free...let me add an Amen.

Sheran commented on Sunday, Feb 09, 2014 at 18:07 PM

Here's another AMEN from me!

JimmyMack commented on Monday, Feb 10, 2014 at 07:51 AM

Lot's of 'AMENS' here. I suggest yall bunch up, get a van or bus and mosey on down to see the Reverend Billy Ray Collins an visit his Full Gospel Sword of Joshua Pentacostal Assembly of God off highway 29 towards Nahunta across the Frontage Road where their doors are always open but their minds are made up

It'd be a good road trip for ya where yall could do some bonding, cement your faith, and develop some more tactics in your war on Liberalism.

A bunch of amens = a consensus. It's your right to be a dissenting vote, but the MODERN VERSION outlines the way it works when the left is in charge.

Vote for CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN in 2014 and 2016: vote against the Democrats.

timeontarget commented on Tuesday, Feb 11, 2014 at 06:17 AM

I hope we do indeed vote for change in 2014 and 2016.

I agree on voting against Democrats.

Don't we have a sales tax referendum on our ballot here in Liberty County this coming November?

We need some healthy discussion on that right here on this blog site.

mewbet commented on Tuesday, Feb 11, 2014 at 07:30 AM

TOT You are right on target.

AMEN

JimmyMack commented on Tuesday, Feb 11, 2014 at 10:03 AM

Well, if we Georgians go blue, boys, I guess there will be no balloons. On the other hand if we stay Red, feel free to come rub my nose in it.

I can take it.
