The Ant and The Grasshopper….Modernized!

Kevin left this on my site and I really felt that more than just a few people should read it!  Thanks Kev!!!

The Ant and The Grasshopper

*There is an ‘Old Version’ and a ‘Modern Version’ …. Two Different Versions! ** **Two Different set of 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.

The MSM 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. The whole country 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 SNL with the grasshopper, and everybody cries when they sing, ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green.’

William Ayers stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the group singing, ‘We shall overcome.’


Rev Wright then has the group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper’s sake.

NoBAMA exclaims in an interview 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 as the ant is too much of a “Rich Prick.”

Finally, the Democrats draft 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.

NoBAMA gets his old law firm to represent the grasshopper in a defamation suit against the ant, and the case is tried before a panel of judges that NoBAMA 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 neighbourhood.

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