Just Saying

I had the unfortunate opportunity to watch your President lie to the American people about health care reform tonight. I need insurance now because I want to puke after watching him open the book and read the names, in order, of the journalists who are asking "off the cuff" questions. I give him credit because I didn't see a TelePrompter for the first time since he was elected, but he did stare straight through the camera and appeared to be looking at the back wall.

That brings me to a 2009 Fairy Tale that all kids, young and old, need to pay attention to;


The little red hen 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 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.'


'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 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 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?

  2. Well said. I agree with all but the first line where you wrote “Your President”. He is not “my” President. I respect the Office. But I have no respect for him as a person. I hope he fails miserably. If he succeeds with his plans for a “New America”, then the Country will fail.

  3. I get pissed off everytime I read things like this because unfortunately it is getting more and more true everyday. I think on the current path the country is going in about 10 years it will be better life style to live luck a bum than to work to get ahead, cause the bum is going to get more than the hard worker anyways.

  4. This is why I think I'm going to go to jail for some really ridiculous crap that no one has done before. I figure I'll get out and get at least enough to retire.

    Please help me figure out exactly what that is going to be.

    Good post and sadly right on. People don't respect honest, hard working people. You have your proof right here in this post. They just want to pay for the dirt while the rest of us just sit around completely miffed as to why the hell all this is going on.

    Being honest and "normal" never got anyone anything...well, except a clear conscience. I guess that is priceless in some far off universe.

    Now you got me mad! OH yeah, shoot me an email. I have something you might want...maybe.
