A friend of mine sent me this and said it was "edited a bit".

Take it for what it is worth...


Little Red Hen -

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.

'Out of my classification,' said the pig.

'I'd lose my seniority,' said the cow.

'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 loave s 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.'

'Excess profits!' cried the cow Nancy Pelosi

'Capitalist leech!' screamed the duck. Barbara 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 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 as much as he
wants. But under our modern government regulations, the productive
workers must divide the fruits of their labor with those who are lazy and 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.'

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
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?.......

Comment: I have my own comments about this I will add them maybe after a few responses.

The only reason I dont put you on ignore is because once in a while you have something to say that is interesting. It only takes one click of my mouse to bypass anything that I dont think is of value. I am clicking away.

If you can't respond intelligently either way regarding the topic at hand but simply attack me then are any further responses from you really of any intrinsic value?

@RexRed,
I think my reply was just as intelligent as your topic post.

Rex is under the impression that he epitomises intelligence. (I enjoy a good laugh also).
Now if we really give him the responses he deserves, he begins to whine and cry.

Notice how "psychology" is one of the tags I have added to this thread...

This is mainly where I would like to take this discussion since politics are often the seed of actions. Psychology is often driven by our political outlook.

People often repress half of the story they forget the playground long ago in their minds… history and the things that made us all turn out the way we did.

I didn’t forget, I remember.

Some remember the pressures and conversations while they were all tossing marbles or skipping rope long repressed by their classmates.

They remember talking and asking eachother, what did they want to be when they grew up.

I knew what I wanted to be… That is what I am today...

Many or most of my friends did not know what the wanted to be, so they sort of got “behind”… they went into “liberal studies”…

So if you get my implication in all of this, early politics made us what we are.

I had a choice.

@RexRed,
This is a parable that psychologically reveals more about the person repeating it than about the story it is attempting to tell. Parables don't make any sense if the characters in it don't make sense. Why would Pelosi ever say anything about her "overtime?" When has Jesse Jackson ever received unemployment compensation and been concerned about losing it? If the cow, duck and pig are always the political figures you use then their statements make no sense earlier.

Psychology wise, the only thing interesting is how the farm animals change completely and you don't see anything wrong with that.

@parados,
Since my conversion to the democratic party I am still not sure that I agree with communism. I do like the idea of the government getting a bit bigger to handle wall street corruption but I can't imagine George Soros forking up his billions so I can have my own chicken coop.

As for George Bush's Stimulus package I got mine but I could not afford to pay H and R block to retrieve it so my stimulus money just stayed with the IRS so they could afford to shut down dinosaur/evolution theme parks.
