The Little Red Hen

Sometimes children's stories are better at seeing the light.
Once  upon a time, on a farm in Virginia, 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 Democrat neighbors together and said, 'If we
plant this wheat, we shall have bread to eat. Who will help me plant

'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

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.

'Above my pay grade,' 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

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

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. (Ted Kennedy)

And they all painted 'Unfair!' picket signs and marched around and
around the little red hen, shouting obscenities.

Then 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 again because she joined the 'party' and got her bread


And all the Democrats cried out,"We all demanded 'Change'and now
'Fairness' has been established."
Individual initiative had died, yet nobody noticed; perhaps no one
cared -- so long as there was free bread that 'The Rich' were paying


Bill Clinton is getting $12 million for his memoirs.

Hillary got $8 million for hers.

That's $20 million for the memories from two people, who for eight
years, repeatedly testified, under oath, that they couldn't remember

And Obama and CHANGE is coming.
