A Political Parable

Once upon a time, on a farm in Virginia , there was a ********little red hen who ********scratched about the barnyard until she uncovered quite a ********few grains of wheat. She called all of her Democrat neighbors together and said,’If we plant this wheat, we shall have bread to eat. Who will help me plant it?’ ‘Not I,’ said the cow.’Not I,’ said the duck.’Not I,’ said the pig.’Not I,’ said the goose.’Then I will do it by myself,’ said the little red hen, and so she did.The wheat grew very tall and ripened into golden grain.’Who will help me reap my wheat?’ asked the little red hen.’Not I,’ said the duck.[FONT=Courier New]Out of my classification,’ said the pig.[/FONT][FONT=Courier New]’[/FONT][FONT=Arial] I’[/FONT]****[FONT=Courier New]d lose my seniority,’ said the cow.[/FONT]’I’d lose my unemployment compensation,’ said the goose.’Then I will do it by myself,’ said the little red hen, and so she did. At last it came time to bake the bread.’Who will help me bake the bread?’ asked the little red hen.’That would be overtime for me,’ said the cow.’I’d lose my welfare benefits,’ said the duck.’I’m a dropout and never learned how,’ said the pig’If I’m to be the only helper, that’s discrimination,’ said the goose.’Then I will do it by myself,’ said the little red ********hen.She baked five loaves and held them up for all of her neighbors to see.They wanted some and, in fact, demanded a share.But the little red hen said, ‘No, I shall eat all five loaves myself.'’Excess profits!’ cried the cow. (Nancy Pelosi)[FONT=Courier New]‘Capitalist leech!’ screamed the duck[/FONT][FONT=Courier New](Barbara[/FONT] Boxer)’I demand equal rights!’ yelled the goose. ********(Jesse Jackson)********The pig just grunted in disdain. (Ted Kennedy)********And they all painted ‘Unfair!’ picket signs and ********marched around and around ********the little red hen, shouting obscenities.********Then the farmer (Obama) came. He said to the little red ********hen, ‘You must not ********be so greedy.’ ‘But I earned the bread,’ said the little red hen.’Exactly,’ said Barack the farmer. ‘That is ********what makes our free enterprise system so wonderful. Anyone in the barnyard can earn a smuch as he wants.But under our modern government regulations, the productive workers mustdivide the fruits of their labor with those who are lazyand idle.’ And they ********all lived happily ever after, including the little red hen,********who ********smiled and ********clucked, ‘I am grateful, for now I truly understand the ********Democratic System.’********But her neighbors became quite disappointed in her. She ********never again baked ********bread because she joined the ‘party’ and got her ********bread free. ********And all the Democrats smiled. ‘Fairness’ had been ********established.********Individual initiative had died, but nobody noticed; perhaps ********no one really ********cared…so long as there was free bread that ‘the ********rich’ were paying for. ********EPILOGUE Bill Clinton is getting $12 million for his ********memoirs. ********Hillary got $8 million for hers.********That’s $20 million for the memories from two people,********who for eight years,********repeatedly testified, under oath, that they couldn’t ****remember anything.IS THIS A GREAT BARNYARD OR WHAT? Remember to vote!!

So true, so true…so pathetically true. Makes me want to cry.

I think I will.
