The Little Red Hen 2015 Version



"Who will help me plant my wheat?" asked the little red hen.

"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." She planted her crop and the wheat grew and ripened.

"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.

"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. (Harry Reid)

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

Then 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?

Thanks Randy G (LINK)

This is the very reason we don't need another Clinton back in the white house. She came in second place last time she ran. Hello.

Have a fabulous day Odie. ☺

That last line is GOLDEN: "That's $20 million for the memories from two people, who for eight years repeatedly testified, under oath, that they couldn't remember anything."

This would be funny if it weren't so damned true. Thanks Odie.

The truth hurts.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Sandee, I sure long for honesty in the White House.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Curmudgeon, What? I can't remember.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

LL, We're all in pain.

If the hen was smart, she'd have baked just enough for herself.

As for Willie and the Hildabeast, they're both dying by inches (Willie especially) and all the revelations are killing Hillary's numbers.

Just like Teddy Kennedy, life is catching up with them*.

* Mary Jo only had an hour to contemplate her fate. Teddy had 4 agonizing, debilitating years.

Same with those 2.

Ain't it the fu*king truth---Marx would be pleased. From each according to his means to each according to their needs. A failed system---but then something the "Boy" from Chicago and his loyal followers have not learned.

Read me another bedtime story, Uncle Odie. I love happy endings. And hustle me up another loaf of bread while you're at it, chop chop...

What difference. . .at this point. . .does it make. They were flat broke when they were forced to leave their residence. She wants all the emails, that she didn't delete, provided as soon as possible. Go to the back of the line, go to the back of the line...

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

edutcher, so what you're saying is there's no skeleton like a liberal skeleton?

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Ron, it's his religion.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Fredd, coming right up, Little Guy.

Race, she wouldn't even make a good traffic cop.
