12114/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 EasyBeing 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 Bush 43, Bush 41, 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-So the moral of the story is to eliminate Social Security, which also covered the ant at a far higher rate than the grasshopper who worked less? Please make your goals clear so people can realize that the indolent wealthy are the grasshoppers of this world- So when the wealth grasshoppers work the ants to death and deprive them of their social safety net when times are tough and the ants die off without adequate health care, then eventually the wealthy grasshoppers suffer too because they didn't take care of the ants like a good liberal-sterling logic and patience and detailed explanations were being wasted on a roomful of allegedly bright individuals who couldn't independently or collectively formulate a viable plan for renting comfort girls on a troop ship (a surprisingly frequent occurance) I'd abandon diplomacy and the scientific method and simply berate them. ROTFLMAO I mean, at that point, why not? What's the risk? That they might not like me? ROTFLMAO or refuse to take my advice? Or deny me the joy of working with or for idiots like themselves? Keep in mind that these were people I KNEW and had to deal with on a daily, face to face basis, not some amorphous horde of anonymous cyber pissants. In fact, quite of few of them were my BOSSES. As you might suspect, my no nonsense approach to problem identification and resolution, not to mention reluctant adopters, occasionally got me fired, but never for being wrong. The only times I ever got canned were for being right once too often, and or for rubbing it in again. Which reminds me: how many times did you and your like minded pals predict the outcome of the last President election INCORRECTLY? Answer: every time! Meanwhile, I was consistently, repeatedly, and correctly predicting not only the eventual winner and his popular vote margin within 1 percent, but also the exact Electoral College within 1 state (Florida). Nevertheless, a certain vehement subset of wingnut ignoramuses insisted on calling me an idiot.
