Default The Ant & The Grasshopper

THE NEW ANT and the Grasshopper, Two Versions:
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 a fool & laughs & dances & 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 Al Sharpton's assistant has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper while he

damns the ants. The Reverend Al can not attend as he has contractual commitments to appear on his MSNBC show for which he is paid over two million dollars a year to complain that rich people

do not care.

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 on The View 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 2016.

THAT'S, 'racist/sexist/homphobic' to libtards... because it's in The Bible.

2Thess.3: 10 - "For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: "If a man will not work, he shall not eat.""
