Old Story, new Spin...Stay Frosty...
« on: February 06, 2018, 04:43:06 PM »
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 ..'

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 for the grasshopper's sake. 

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

Nancy Pelosi & Chuck Schumer exclaim in an interview with  Anderson Cooper 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 and ramshackle, the 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 2018 and 2020
