Voting for HAND-OUTS, think again............

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 shiveringgrasshopper 
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
Black Lives Matter group singing, We shall overcome.

Then Reverend Al Sharpton  
has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper 
while he damns the ants. He later appears on MSNBC to complain that rich people do not care.

Former President Obama condemns the ant 
and blames 
Donald Trump, President Bush 43, President Bush 41, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the 
Pope 

for the grasshopper's 
plight.

Nancy Pelosi & Chuck Schumer  
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 2018.
