antI read this post on hardnoxandfriends.com this morning and I feel it is well worth re posting. 

Aesop's Fables, or the Aesopica, is a collection of fables credited to Aesop, a slave in Ancient Greece.  He was also a storyteller and lived around 600 BC. 

They always had a moral to the story, something which exists to this day : telling a tale to deliver a message. 

How times change. 

It seems that these days, hard work is punished and idleness is rewarded. The end result, however, is very different.  To reward idleness and punish hard work will destroy our Free World. 

If we were all grasshoppers, we would surely perish. That is why countries like China like to keep plenty of ants on hand. Without the ants, the grasshoppers could not enjoy their life of privilege. 

 

 

THE NEW  ANT and the Grasshopper
This one is a little different. 
Two Different Versions …   Two Different Morals

OLD VERSION

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 OLD STORY:

Be responsible for yourself 

MODERN VERSION

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 the ant 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 Black Lives Matter group singing, We shall overcome.

Then Reverend Al Sharpton has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper while he damns the ants. He later appears on MSNBC to complain that rich people do not care.
Former President Obama condemns the ant and blames Donald Trump, President Bush 43, President Bush 41, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope for the grasshopper’s plight.
 

Nancy Pelosi & Chuck Schumer exclaim in an interview on The View that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant leaving him nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez  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 peaceful, neighborhood.
The entire Nation collapses bringing the rest of the free world with it.


MORAL OF THE NEW STORY:

Be careful how you vote in 2020.
