    Subject: Little Red Hen 2012 - remember to vote




    "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.

    When 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.

    And perhaps....this is the end...................

    And the next week, there was no bread, or anything else to eat. So, they
    all starved equally.


    DO WE LIVE IN A GREAT BARNYARD OR WHAT?

    **** November is coming ****

    This thread will be deleted because it isn't firearm(2A) related, but it really is and because it doesn't fit the political agenda of certain moderator(s). Wanna Bet?

    Why would you do that? Although it is in a "broad brush", the underlying issues are addressed.

    Why would someone vote for this no balls lier in chief, Obama has Hillary take the heat for the Benghazi cluster F, Passes the buck with F&F, He hasn't done a damn thing he said he would.

    He has spent more in four years than Bush W did in eight and unemployment has stayed above eight percent his whole first term, Am I missing something?

    I believe the OP's post is SIMPLY an attempt to enlighten a few folks here who may have been taught a slanted view of world history. He prefaced his post as simple. Folks that get their news from ESPN might read his post, but I doubt they will take the time to read your links. I know a lot of these guys and politics is the last thing they are concerned about.

    Yeah but OP's story has nothing to do with socialism, just a story of lazy people on the dole voting for obambi. Both R/D support welfare, just in slightly different forms.

    You're right about one thing, the fact that people who get their news on ESPN or Comedy Central are allowed to vote is all the evidence one needs to know that voting is a total waste of time.

    I read these threads and try to draw something from them.
    Sometimes I learn things about politics,but most of the time I understand why politicians think we are all stupid and think we need to be supervised .
    Why they think they need to make decisions for us
    There is so much name calling and childish bickering on these threads,it amazing to think it's adults writing it.
    It's not just this site,but all sites with a political section.
    I wonder how it has taken so long for the US to reach the demise of Yugoslavia when we talk and listen just like those countries do

    As someone who has spent the first 13 years of his life under such system I can tell you from experience that the barn story is right on. It is simplistic and there are a lot of other issues, but for a simple explanation it is good enough.

    Like a good little closed minded follower you do not want to hear something that does not allign with your view.
    You might as well put me on that list as well.
