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, 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.


Be responsible for yourself!

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, 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. 

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’

ACORN stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the group singing, We Shall Overcome.

Then Rev. Jeremiah Wright 
has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper’s sake. 

President Obama condemns the ant 
and blames President Bush, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope for the grasshopper’s plight. 

Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King 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 and 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 freeloading friends finishing 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 does not 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 and ramshackle the once prosperous and peaceful, neighborhood. 

The entire Nation collapses bringing the rest 
of the free world with it. 


Be careful how you vote in 2012.

I have sent this to you because 
I believe that you are an

You may wish to pass this on to other ants, but do not bother sending it on to any grasshoppers because they would not understand it, anyway.

  1. Why isn’t Guantanamo closed?
  2. Why hasn’t the Patriot Act been overturned?
  3. Why haven’t we done away with the wireless wire-tapping that was so previously abhorrent?
  4. Why does Obama have in his 2019 budget 195 billion dollars for the Iraq war if we are pulling out our troops?
  5. Why were there over 30,000 earmarks passed each year that Democrats controlled congress (2009-2010)?
  6. If the Bush tax cuts were so bad, why are they still in place?
  7. Cap & Trade update the bill, where EPA officials already have admitted that the legislation would have virtually no effect on worldwide greenhouse gas emissions.
  8. Global Warming – Ask the following questions:
    1. Content of the atmosphere
    2. Percent of available land occupied by humans.
    3. The percentage of hydro carbons that are emitted into the atmosphere as the result of ALL HUMAN ACTIVITY
    4. What are the main determinants of the earth’s climate.
    5. What has happened to the global mean temperature over the last ten years?
  9. Why does National Healthcare represent rationing, most especially senior citizens, Euthanasia anyone?

10. We have been informed that the total deficit for the next 10 years according to Obama’s budget has been raised to 12 trillion dollars, meaning an average of 1.2 trillion dollars per year.

11. The above deficit means that the US will require 4.6 billion dollars per day from foreigners to absorb that debt.

12. Even with the deadline for Iran to cease nuclear weapons development having passed on 1/1/10 they continue.

13. National Healthcare and transparency. What happened to CSpan? Why can’t you or I get one of the many waivers being passed out?

14. What happened to democrat’s complaints about high oil and gasoline prices?

15. What happened to the complaints about the unemployment rate only getting to 4.6% under George W. Bush’s presidency?

16. What happened to the guarantee that the unemployment rate would not exceed 8% as the result of the stimulus?


How much different the reaction would be if George W Bush was President.
