The Ant and the Grasshopper, revised edition

Debbie at Right Truth has the Democratic "common good" version of the old Aesop Fable, The Ant and the Grasshopper. You definately don't want to miss reading it.

After reading her post, click over to a different take on the same theme and a different ending. Here's an excerpt:

The story ends as we see the grasshopper finishing up the last bits of the ant's food while the government house he's in -- which just happens to be the ant's old house -- crumbles around him since he doesn't know how to maintain it. The ant has disappeared in the snow. And on the TV, which the grasshopper bought by selling most of the ant's food, they are showing Bill Clinton standing before a wildly applauding group of Democrats announcing that a new era of "fairness" has dawned in America.
BTW, there's even an Australian version.

And just in case you have trouble knowing when you've met a Democrat, here's an example of how one man made the determination (situations may differ from time to time, but the basic "signature" seldom varies):

A woman in a hot-air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, "Can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot-air balloon approximately 30 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees 49.09 minutes west longitude."

She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be a Republican."

"I am," replied the man. "How did you know?"

"Well,' Answered the balloonist, " everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."

The man smiled and responded, "You must be a Democrat."

"I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?"

"Well," said the man, " you don't know where you are or where you're going. You've risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and you expect ME to solve your problem. You're in exactly the same position you were before we met, but somehow, now, it's MY fault."
