THE NEW ANT and the Grasshopper, Two Versions:
The ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER
This one is a little different…
Two Different Versions …
Two Different Morals…Two Different Sets of Values….
The ant works
hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
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!
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, MSNBC, CNN,
and ABC show up to immediately to report and
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.- The Rev. Jesse Jackson is also on a racist tirade against all ants that work for a living….
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 with fiery eyes Chuck & Nancy both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share. And ask guidance from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes.
Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity &
Anti-Grasshopper Act, convalidated by the ACLU,
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.And the Left blames its disappearance on “The Paris Climate accord” that Trump did not sign. Guess global warming had nothing to do with this.
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 into destruction..
MORAL OF THE STORY:
Be careful how you vote in 2020.
I’ve sent this to you because I believe that you are an ant
not a grasshopper !
Make sure that you pass this on to other ants.
Don’t bother sending it on to any grasshoppers
because they wouldn’t understand it, anyway and will surely blame everybody else but the grasshopper
