This about sums it up!

This is too funny to pass up so I thought I might share it with some of you guys that have not seen it yet. I think its been going around e-mail so most of you probably have.

This is a good example of how our country has been run by the government:

The Ant and the Grasshopper

ORIGINAL VERSION:

The ant works hard in the withering

heat all summer long, building his

house and laying in supplies for the

winter. The grasshopper thinks he's 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.

MODERN VERSION:

The ant works hard in the withering

heat all summer long, building his

house and laying in supplies for the

winter. The grasshopper thinks he's 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 others are

cold and starving.

CBS, NBC 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."

Jesse Jackson stages a demonstration

in front of the ant's house, where the

news stations film the group

singing, "We shall overcome." Jesse

then has the group kneel down to pray

to God for the grasshopper's sake.

Al Gore exclaims in an interview with

Peter Jennings that the ant has gotten

rich off the back of the grasshopper,

and calls for an immediate tax hike on

the ant to make him pay his "fair

share."

Finally, the EEOC drafts the "Economic

Equity and 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.

Hillary gets her old law firm to

represent the grasshopper in a

defamation suit against the ant, and

the case is tried before a panel of

Federal judges that Bill had appointed

from a list of single-parent welfare

recipients. The ant loses the case.

The story ends as we see the

grasshopper finishing up the last bits

of the ant's food while the government

house he is in, which just happens to

be the ant's old house, crumbles around

him because he doesn't maintain it. The

ant has disappeared in the snow.

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 once

peaceful neighborhood.

Pretty fricken sad isn't it...

One other part that was left out:

The ant was also fined and imprisoned for damaging the environment while collecting his food since his house was near a national forest where the hairs of a rare lynx where discovered.

If you don’t get it, see "Armed With Knowledge You Shall Be Free or, Why I don't trust Environ Whackos" and/or "Eco Nazis exposed" topics on this forum.
