    The ant and the grasshopper

    A new twist to an old story.



    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 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 to God for the grasshopper's sake.

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

    Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid exclaim in an interview
    with Larry King 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 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 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 w
    ho terrorize the ramshackle, once prosperous
    and once 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 2010.
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7

    And then the ant re-appears with many of his Patriot friends and all are well-armed. They lay claim to land for themselves and begin to rebuild their country according to its orginating principles of freedom and liberty. And any grasshoppers who approach their settlement are shot on sight. The end.


    Can't help it, HK, I like HAPPY Endings.
