The Ant and the Grasshopper Story

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 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 others are 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.'

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.

Nancy Pelosi and John Kerry 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.

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 Clinton 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.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be careful how you vote in 2008!!!

Sack,

Believe it or not, my ex (a democrat after a severe head injury), sent me that this morning. As long as I send checks, she sends me outdated e-mails. A fair trade I guess. Talk about a proponent of redistribution of the wealth, now she has it down perfectly.

After 10 years (it will be next March) I started by having to send her several thousand a month. It is now down to a few hundred. It all ends next March and I can start saving for when DeeWoman deserts me. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

the Deeman married to a Democrat....there is a God, there is justice in both this life and after wards.
The "head injury" being a euphemism for "loony left"???
But your story made my day (again). I get orgasmic when I hear about a Dem screwing a Rep out of their money...since it's usually the other way around.

I assume the head injury came immediately after you found out how much you had to pay her? Hence the move to Bama/Texas... where we're OK with that /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

<span style="color: #FF0000"> Of course, she was not a Democrat when I was married to her but the transfer of wealth thing was just too much of an attraction for her (plus the enhanced benefit of getting away from me). Dragging a poor trophy woman to so many countries for so many years is bound to cause harm. To her credit, she helped raise two wonderful daughters, one right, one left. However, with recent promotions the young one is coming around now from the left. See, for a while, she labored under the illusion that it was her money, not the governments. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

Of course, both have learned the ultimate lesson, earn enough and it does not really matter who's in charge. Stay poor and both parties will screw you. </span>
