Why Voting In 2016 Matters

THE NEW ANT and the Grasshopper, Two Versions:


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.


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..


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

Occupy  the Anthill stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house  where the news stations film the SEIU group singing, We  shall overcome.


Then  Rev Al Sharpton’s assistant 

has  the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper
while  he damns the ants. The Reverend Al can not attend as he has contractual commitments to appear on his MSNBC show for which he is paid over two million dollars a year to complain that rich people do not care.

President  Obama condemns  the ant and  blames

President  Bush 43, President Bush 41, President Reagan,  Christopher Columbus, and the Pope  
for  the grasshopper’s  

Nancy  Pelosi & Harry Reid exclaim  in an interview on The View that  the ant has gotten  rich off the back of the
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 ofspiders  who terrorize the ramshackle, once prosperous   and  peaceful, neighborhood.

The  entire Nation collapses bringing  the rest of  the free world with it.


Be  careful how you vote in 2016.

  1. OK, Chris….keep it up. Sooner or later you’ll write something I can disagree with. 🙂 It boggles me ole brain that this is so invisible to so many. This old ant is worn out and finally retire and that blasted grasshopper is still trying to empty my storage bin!!!!

  2. Chris, you did a terrific job relating this to current times, although this scenario has been going on for generations. Our welfare program is out of control and there are far too many folks on that bandwagon who do not deserve the benefit. It should not be a free ride for anyone.
