This is Political and I wasn't going to go there but I had to post this- Please read if you have not seen it before- a different Slant on 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

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.

"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 earned the bread," said the little red hen.

"Exactly," said the agent. "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 that "the rich" were

Paying for.

Bill Clinton is getting $12 million for his

Memoirs. Hillary got $8 million for hers.

That's $20 million for memories from two people,

Who for eight years, repeatedly testified, under

Oath, that they couldn't remember anything.
