The Little Red
Hen

"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.

Typical neocon post.

Talking about jobs that have slipped-away overseas, how many free trade bills have been signed into law by a Democrat President in total, versus how many were signed into law by GW alone?(Two versus 30). Did you know that America lost 6 million manufacturing jobs overseas just during GW's time in the Oval Office alone?

Are you aware that Senate Republicans have four times now in the last 3 & 1/2 years voted in lockstep to filibuster Democrat-sponsored bills that would have penalized US companies wanting to move American jobs offshore, as well as to enact incentives for US companies that wanted to bring our jobs back home? Do you know that Senate Republicans have filibustered 241 bills in the last 3 & 1/2 years, which is six times the average of a 4-year Presidency, and that most of the bills that were killed were bills that would have created and/or strengthened American bottom 90% jobs?

And yet you blame President Obama and the Democrats for not doing enough for average American families, while entertaining the thought that by giving wealthy Americans even more money than they currently have, that somehow they will be careless-enough to let some of it trickle-down to you?

Wealthy Americans and the Republican Party are blackmailing the rest of America. They are telling us that either they get filthy rich, or nobody gets rich. They are telling us that a complete lack of banking regulation and oversight is necessary for them to make a killing, despite the fact that our entire current economic morass is the fault of a lack of banking regulation and oversight. They are telling us that the furtherance of their free trade goals will make us all rich, despite the fact that those 6 million American manufacturing jobs already lost to free trade would reduce our unemployment rate by half. They are telling us that record profits at our health insurance companies are necessary to maintain the "greatest medical community in the world", despite the fact that health care costs increased 8 times as fast as the inflation rate during GW's eight years in office.

Frankly, since most of Romney's advisers are GW's people, how will anything change for the better for the bottom 90% of us? If those same 15-20% annual health care cost increases were to continue for just another 8 years, nobody in the bottom 90% of us will be able to afford health insurance. If the slide in bottom 70% spending power that we have seen since Reagan was elected continues for another 8 years, the bottom 70% of Americans will be below the poverty level. Since Reagan was elected in 1980, Republicans have held the Oval Office for 20 of the 32 years since then.

Which US President owns the greatest increase in our national debt, when his trust fund borrowing is included? GW, who by himself incurred $6.8 trillion of debt starting from a budgetary surplus. Which US President has the greatest percentage increase in our national debt? Ronald Reagan, who nearly tripled our national debt all by himself, by cutting our top tax rates from 70% to 38% during a major recession almost as bad as our current economic morass.

There is nothing like actual facts and not neocon talking points.

That is all anyone in this nation needs to know in how we got where we are today.

I like this little poem. As socialism implodes in Europe, we can easily see the results of government stealing peoples money and using it to buy votes via the public and private sector unions, welfare, food stamps, phones, "tax credits", housing, air conditioners etc.... I have yet to see a skinny welfare recipient, LOL. As Europe falls, maybe the American people will wake up...But I doubt it. May God Bless America.

Kind of hard to see someone who is on welfare when you live in Burnt Store Isle.

I love how Teabaggers use the term socialism all the time. 99% of them do not even know the definition.
It is just a buzz word that they hear or read from some far right media source.
