The Little Red Hen

Once upon a time, on a farm in Indiana, 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 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 h! elp 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.

"Capitalist leech!" screamed the duck.

"I demand equal rights!" yelled the goose.

The pig just grunted in disdain.

And they all painted "Unfair!" picket signs and marched around and around the little red hen, shouting obscenities.

Then a government agent came, he said to the little red hen, "You must not be so greedy."

"But I earn! ed the bread," said the little red hen.

"Exactly," said the ag ent. "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, as long as there was free bread.

Well I'm use to it, I'm just wondering how the socialist will feed themselves when all the worker bees are dead and gone. :lol:

At the rate that the welfare class is growing in this country, that's probably something they should start thinking about. Bet they don't, though. Maybe a 100% estate tax on you would help soften the blow on them? Now there's some Democratic Party platform food for thought. :mad:

I have no use for the Bill Clinton Book. The outhouse has been torn down years ago.
Heard on the news today that Clinton gets $5.00 for each book sold.
I will not donate $5.00 to Sick Willy.

I read an article awhile back, where he and Billary had never owned a homeThey were living in a state govt. owned home in Arkansas, then moved to a U.S. taxpayer Govt. owned home in D.C. They had two cars stored in a garage in Little Rock, Ark. He was living off his wifes Govt. Salary from a state that they had to move to, for her to get elected as a Senator.
I wish I could find the article and post it.
If anyone out there knows the Article I am talking about I would like to see it posted.
Anyhow he did admit that he did Monica, just because he could.
Before he said, under oath "I never had sex with that Woman, Ms Lewinsky".

Don't know if y'all heard this but i think it was David Letterman who said (when Clinton's book came out):

"It's actually longer than the new Harry Potter book. And both of them, I believe, are about a boy and his wand."
