THE ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER
This one is a little different...
Two Different Versions...
Two Different Morals
The ant works hard in the withering heat 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 ant is warm and well fed.
The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.
MORAL OF THE 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, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of theant 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.'
ACORN stages a demonstration in front of the ant's house where the news stations film the group singing, “We shall overcome.” Then Rev. Jeremiah Wright has the group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper's sake.
President Obama condemns the ant and blames President Bush for the grasshopper's plight.
Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the ant has gotten rich off the back of thegrasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.
Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act 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.
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 once peaceful, neighborhood..
The entire Nation collapses bringing the rest of the free world with it.
MORAL OF THE STORY: Be careful how you vote in 2010.

Why is it politically correct to make sure Muslims aren't inconvenienced or put through the airline security horrors, while it's perfectly fine to put the REST OF US through it?? Maybe WE should start issuing fatwas for having to take our shoes off for no good reason...or declaring jihad against the government. Maybe if they are afraid of US, they will treat us with more respect!
Political Correctness is a symptom of mental illness...and stupidity. And it's getting Americans killed daily.

Unlimited support may presage more aggressive action in mortgage marketBy Alistair Barr, MarketWatchSAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- The government's decision to provide unlimited support to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac probably presages more aggressive action to prop up the U.S. housing market.The government may put a mortgage-modification effort, called the Home Affordable Modification Program, or HAMP, into overdrive in coming years, pushing for reductions in the principal outstanding on home loans overseen by Fannie (NYSE:FNM) and Freddie (NYSE:FRE) , Bose George, an analyst at Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, wrote in a note to investors Monday.The U.S. Treasury Department said on Christmas Eve that it lifted $200 billion caps on the amount of taxpayer money that can be pumped into the ailing mortgage giants over the next three years.Neither institution is near its $200 billion limit -- Treasury has put $60 billion into Fannie and $51 billion into Freddie since it seized the failing companies in September 2008.However, Treasury said the promise of unlimited government money "should leave no uncertainty about the Treasury's commitment to support these firms as they continue to play a vital role in the housing market during this current crisis."Fannie shares jumped 21% to close at $1.27 on Monday, while Freddie shares soared 27% to $1.60.KBW's George initially found the extra support "perplexing," he said, because Fannie and Freddie are unlikely to need more than $200 billion of government money each.During the depths of the recession in March 2009, the Government Accountability Office estimated that the bailouts of the two companies would cost taxpayers $389 billion, the analyst noted. Since then, house prices have stabilized and have begun to creep up in some areas.Instead, unlimited taxpayer support will give the government "more flexibility in potentially taking more aggressive action to support the housing market," George wrote.It appears that the Commisars/Czars in this administration are planning for a total government against private ownership of real estate here in America. This is VERY DISTURBING!
By Chris Isidore, senior writerDecember 28, 2009: 4:30 PM ETNEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Shares of mortgage finance giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac soared Monday after the Treasury Department announced what essentially amounts to a blank check for their bailouts.Treasury lifted a $200 billion limit on the amount it was ready to pump into each of the two mortgage firms after the markets closed Thursday. Fannie Mae (FNM, Fortune 500) shares leapt 21% Monday to $1.27, while shares of Freddie Mac (FRE, Fortune 500) jumped 27% to $1.60.While the support from Treasury would appear to be a vote of confidence for the firms, the companies' leaders apparently have no interest in owning the stocks themselves...
-American Thinker Blog: Two airplane bomb plotters released from Gitmo
Monday 6:15 am "Fox and Friends" reported that Scotland Yard has warned US intel, that there was a group of 24 more Moslems (Brit citizens), trained in Yemen, Al Quaida linked, prepared to initiate similar attacks, as Umar Farouk Mohammed Ali Baba perpetrated on Christmas day over the state of Michiganistan. Alhough the report and warnings are being reported in the British press it's been blacked out and sanitized here!!!! politics.
On Sunday I listened to Janet openborders Napolitano tell me " Everything went smoothly". After national laughter, on Monday the incompentent bitch tells me the words that came out of her mouth Sunday were taken out of context !!! She must be fired before taxpayers are buying body bags by the gross.
Barry, vacationing, heard the news 3 days after the rest of America, and rushed to the camera to inform us that he'll solve the problem with an investigation, while at the same time the Obamunists are stonewalling Rep Pete Hoeksra, denying his intel committee info on Fort Hood.
Right after 9-11 I incredibly watched House Democrats rush to solve our national security problem, by nationalizing Airport security, increasing their pay ,and mandating unionization while outlawing politically incorrect profiling. Feel safer?
As this administration plays cops and robbers and extends constitutional rights to enemy combatents rather than fight a war against fundamentalist moslems--this perp's been given his right to remain silent and his scheister at our expense. Instead he should be in gitmo, being waterboarded, to discern the identity of the other 24 bombers on the way to our shore.
See article below. Those that trained Umar are former Gitmo prisioners !!! Release the rest of them Barry, to improve our international image. With some luck their target will be [Washington DC]..............GREG
No indication???? The freaking terrorist SAID there are more attacks to come. The Brits have intelligence on 25 more plots. NO INDICATION???? Nocluetano needs to resign.
*hat tip to Dodie (with an improvement by yours truly)
I'd say that Hassan at Fort Hood and Abudllahwhatever on flight 253 beg to differ. The terrorists are always one step ahead of her because she's incompetent. And her response in the case of the most recent attack? ....Instead of keeping these radical Islamists off our planes, is to have us sit quietly with our hands in our laps so any potential bombers won't be able to detonate their explosives. This is the same idiotic mentality that thinks banning guns will prevent criminals from getting them and reduce crime. Absolute MORONS.
I don't even know what to say anymore. It's insane.

His treatment cost Florida taxpayers an estimated $500,000, a price tag medical director Ashkin says seems like an astronomical amount to spend on someone who's not an American citizen. But he questions how the world can afford not to treat Juarez and others sick with similar lethal strains.
"This is an airborne spread disease ... so when we treat that individual, we're actually treating and protecting all of us," he said. "This is true homeland security."
The HSA plan for your security is to rely on faulty bombs and the bravery of passersby. Don't you feel safer now?

Senator Tom Coburn: "This vote is indeed historic. This Congress will be remembered for its arrogance, corruption and stupidity. In the year of 2009, a Congress ignored the coming economic storm and impending bandruptcy of our entitlement programs and embarked on an ideological crusade to bring our nation as close to single-payer, government-run health care as possible. If this bill becomes law, future generations will rue this day and I will do everything in my power to work toward its repeal. THIS BILL WILL RATION CARE, CUT MEDICARE, INCREASE PREMIUMS, FUND ABORTION AND BURY OUR CHILDREN IN DEBT."
"This process was not compromise. This process was corruption...."
While the five men wanted to plead guilty in a military commission earlier this year to hasten their executions, sources now say that the detainees favor participating in a full-scale federal trial to air their grievances and expose their treatment while held by the CIA at secret prisons.

I know of few people who are happy with the president we have today, and they are either skulls full of mush or dyed in the wool Democrats that would never change no matter what, you know the ones that I mean . . . 'my parents were Democrats so I am a Democrat.' Don't confuse them with facts.
Since we are in general agreement that Obama is really, really bad for our nation, we must ask ourselves "How did this come to pass?" There is even still a question of his place of birth, and therefore his legality to become president of these United States.
How could all of this happen? Were we asleep? Well, some of us certainly were, and that's a fact. Far too many people, citizens of these United States take their right to vote with a very large grain of salt. They neither bother to inform themselves of the facts and the background of those that are running for political office, nor do they really care.
The rest of us have just lacked really good leadership. Senator McCain is a nice man, but hardly presidential material. So how did Barack Obama garner so much support and continue to be considered 'the savior' of our nation, even to 'winning' a Nobel Peace Prize?
The answer to this is relatively simple . . . the media . . . both national and local, have failed to do their job. Even worse, for a media that is 'supposed' to report the news, they have taken sides and covered, nay, obliterated, all that is wanting in Obama's background while touting him as the 'new messiah' bringing change to our nation.
Well we all know how readership and trust in the media has fallen to an all time low. Many newspapers, magazines, TV stations, et al, are going bankrupt for lack of circulation and therefore are losing huge amounts of advertising money.
The 'retribution' is coming a bit late for our country however. Personally I have absolutely no faith in the media of the United States any longer, with a few exceptions such as FOX News and a handful of 'right wing' radio and TV hosts who, in spite of their naysayers, are telling it like it is.
I learned back in the days of Richard Nixon that you do not listen to what they say, you watch what they do, and I was a registered Republican at the time. I may be dumb, but I'm not stupid. The same can be said currently for the person that is living in our White House, we must watch what he is doing, not listening to what he is saying.
I am looking forward to voting in 2010. I am going to make a point of voting for NO incumbent, regardless of party. Our problems now transcend party lines. The Democrats have become extreme left wing socialists and the Republicans are weak and seem to have lost their way.
As a citizen, and a veteran of the U.S. Army I will NOT waste my vote by not voting, but I am prepared to make a statement in how I vote. Won't you all join me? It is not too late to take back our country, but it WILL be an uphill fight. The United States of America are certainly worth fighting for so let us get out and do our utmost in her time of need.
As always, feel free to disagree with me about any or all of what I have just stated.

.'....America stands at the brink of a Marxist abyss because Americans have elected a majority of officials who do not honor the Constitution, who do not respect the value of individual freedom, who crave personal power and perks more than the prosperity produced by free people operating a free market.....'
'Tis the week before Christmas and all through the land, not a freedom is safe from Obama's hand.
Bankers, bewildered, before him now bow, while auto-makers, thankful, praise his cash cow.
With energy and health care nearing control, his grasp on the nation is as he foretold.
The people are stirred by his escapades, and are somewhat shocked by the history they made.
Obama is not what he promised to be; he brings, instead, tyranny.'

".....With the passage of the ObamaCare Death Plan—vote slated Monday—the
Executive and Legislative branches of the US government will now OWN our bodies and will determine what we may and may not do with them, eat and whether or not many of us will even be allowed to live.
Note: If you didn’t vote for or don’t plan to vote for the tyrant next time, your life and the lives of your loved ones may very well be on the line. And don’t forget, Obama has no intention of increasing jobs in the private sector or even getting yours back for you. A poorer, smaller, less-educated and “victimized” population is more easily dominated and controlled by its masters......"
Before we even catch your breath from the dangerous and tyrannical healthcare bill passes the Senate, they will hit us with Amnesty. We are witnessing a complete hijacking and takeover of the US Govt, a dismantling of our system and the nullification of the US Constitution. I hope you are all very happy with the "hope & change". This is a change alright. A change from being Americans to becoming Cubans.
Patriots, The United States Senate and House of Representatives are no longer under the control of sane leadership. The two houses of congress are pursuing a policy of authoritarian, illegal legislating, completely ignoring the will of "we the people" and constitutional law.
Politicians in both the legislative and executive branches are purposefully violating the United States Constitution, enacting legislation destructive to Founding Father principles, and arrogantly daring the American people to do anything about it...it's a display of "in your face" attitude of superiority and willful disobedience to the United States Constitution.
Demonstrated bribery the US Senate leadership is pursuing is equaled only by totalitarian regimes America has considered enemies and fought wars against in past decades.
The commitment of billions of tax-payer funds to buy votes from other Senators for their supporting the healthcare bill is despicable at best, illegal on it's face, and cannot stand.
Freedom and liberty sways dangerously in the balance...what additional evidence is needed to rise up and stop the madness in Washington, D.C.?

A message to all members of Constitutional Emergency
Kentucky Patriots, (Also a reminder for all of us) The good old boys of the major party apparatus have not gotten the message of the Tea Party/912 movement yet...even with polls showing Tea Party polling ahead of both R and D....this will knock your socks off..... The National Republican Senatorial Committee is supporting an ex-democrat now running as a republican rather than supporting a constitutional, Founding Father principled republican candidate. Trey Grayson an ex-democrat, now a republican is running against Rand Paul who is running as a republican in the Kentucky primary for Senator. Can you believe the Republican party is supporting Grayson? They learned nothing in New York District 23. Rand Paul, republican and a firm constitutional, anti-bailout, term limit supporter is being shunned by the republican establishiment....and he says "that's great....everytime there is a republican fund-raiser for Grayson, my coffers explode"...... What are we looking for patriots? Are we looking for more of the same old party apparatus....republicans trying to push another District 23 debacle like they started in New York by selecting a liberal and losing everything, or do we want a constitutional conservative in Kentucky that can win, carrying our fight? Rand Paul who is supporting term limits says "I want to go to Washington to shake up the establishment and come back home"...he is not interested in a career as a Senator. What say you Kentucky and America? Isn't it time to energize the "grass roots" for Rand Paul and douse the RINO Grayson early and win in Kentucky?? I think it is and hope you will start the "grass roots for Paul" that will overwhelm Grayson and result in his withdrawal....
Take a look at Rand Paul's web site below. http://www.randpaul2010.com/
Let's take America back patriots...our last chance will be the 2010 election, if we get that far.

Keyboard comment: I see no evidence to believe Obama lost one minute of sleep over sending soldiers to war, because he sure as hell didn't lose any sleep over leaving those troops already in Afghanistan to be sitting ducks while he took his sweet time deciding whether to support them or not. And he did the mimimum only to prevent being "a President that lost a war". This guy is no friend to the military, nor to Americans.

When you call this toll free number for the Capitol Building, you will first have to listen to a recording telling you to ask your senator to vote for "healthcare reform."

this health care reform and I did not appreciate listening to a commercial
on this phone number He said he would look into it.
I just called and went ballistic on the operator and gave her holy HELL in no uncertain terms, and wasn't polite about it. She said the message was from a Lobby Group. What??????? I told her I am now my own lobby group and I demand equal time and want my message put on there. She hung up on me. Big shock.

D'uh! I guess they just finally figured out that water is wet too.
I have a feeling John Galt moved out of the USA.
From our friend Fee:
Many Israelis want to know: why didn't the soldiers attacked by a U.S. Army major-turned-terrorist return fire? When a Muslim goes, well, Muslim in Israel he is typically shot to death by someone--say, a reserve soldier--within seconds of screaming "Allah Akbar." In contrast with the Israeli experience, it took 10 minutes before a civilian police officer at Fort Hood was able to shoot and stop Muslim fanatic Nidal Malik Hasan. How could that happen? How could so many people trained in the strategies and tactics of modern warfare be so defenseless? The answer--and this may astonish many Americans--is that the victims were unarmed. U.S. soldiers are not allowed to carry guns for personal protection, even on a 340-acre base quartering more than 50,000 troops. So it goes in brain-dead, liberal America . Fort Hood is a "gun free" zone, thanks to regulations adopted in one of the very first acts signed into law by anti-gun President Bill Clinton in March, 1993. Click here for the file.
POSTSCRIPT: Israeli teachers, from kindergarten on up, are also armed; so, a Virginia Tech-type slaughter is highly unlikely at an Israeli university. Israelis, who have had to combat terrorism all their lives, are not afraid of guns. They are an armed people, ready, willing, and able to defend themselves and their country. Unlike indoctrinated Americans, paralyzed by fear and political correctness, Israelis understand that people, not guns, kill people.
No problem...she's terrific. And the left is scared to death of her (otherwise why spend so much time trying to smear her as a "stupid hick"? She's no hick (she's a real American), and she is definitely NOT stupid.
