Scary, yet not outside the realm of reality!






























































































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 ...'


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. Jeremiah Wright has the group kneel down to pray for the
grasshopper's sake, while he damns the ants.



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 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 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.





I've sent this to you because I believe that you are an ant,
not a grasshopper!





Make sure that you pass this on to other ants.










Don't bother sending it on to any grasshoppers because they wouldn't understand it, anyway
