Or is it Sociology 101???

If you start with a cage containing five monkeys and inside the cage, hang a
banana on a string from the top and then you place a set of stairs under the
banana, before long a monkey will go to the stairs and climb toward the
banana.

As soon as he touches the stairs, you spray all the other monkeys with cold
water.

After a while another monkey makes an attempt with same result... all the
other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon when another monkey
tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it.

Now, put the cold water away.Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it
with a new one.

The new monkey sees the banana and attempts to climb the stairs. To his
shock, all of the other monkeys beat the crap out of him. After another
attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs he will be
assaulted.

Next, remove another of the original five monkeys, replacing it with a new
one.

The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes
part in the punishment...... with enthusiasm, because he is now part of the
"team".

Then, replace a third original monkey with a new one, followed by the
fourth, then the fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes to the stairs, he
is attacked.

Now, the monkeys that are beating him up have no idea why they were not
permitted to climb the stairs. Neither do they know why they are
participating in the beating of the newest monkey.

Finally, having replaced all of the original monkeys, none of the remaining
monkeys will have ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, not one
of the monkeys will try to climb the stairway for the banana.

Why, you ask? Because in their minds...that is the way it has always been!

This, my friends, is how Congress operates... and this is why, from time to time:

ALL of the monkeys need to be REPLACED AT THE SAME TIME.

Once again, you failed to cite your source and tried to pass it off as your own until you were called out on it

I received it in an email from a friend who didn't footnote it. I had to look up where it came from like the rump could have easily done himself if he had basic computer skills.

You should have used your "basic computer skills" to paste a few lines into a google search and you it would have come up BEFORE YOU POSTED IT.

Let me demonstrate.... I will past "particular about the point it made" into google and it will come up with this:

Typical Conservative contempt for academic respectable endeavors. Have you noticed jokers like Paul Ryan and Sarah Palin went to lower level colleges and community colleges? Rush Limbaugh didn't last a single semester in college. Most liberals went to schools like Goergetown, Stanford, UB, and Ivy League schools

Don't tell a dego that works for social services that he's mean. More then likely he'll take it as a compliment.
By the way what's the average salary for a social worker and how many paid hours not at work do you think they accumulate.
All I have to say is no more Italians in office you'll just see an influx of corruption and crooks running the local businesses.
As for Cuomo he needs to stay in the kitchen with his blonde bimbo Sandra Lee.

LOL! Ryan, Palin, and Limbaugh have more money then you can even imagine. So much for your liberal colleges!

It also proves my point about success without college!
