The Original Version

The ant busts his ##### in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks he's 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.

The New Liberal Version

It starts out the same but when winter comes the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving. CBS, NBC, and ABC show up and show pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to film of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.

America is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can it be, in a country of such wealth that this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so? Then a representative of the NAAGB (The National Association of Green Bugs) shows up on Night Line and charges the ant with "Green Bias" and makes the case that the grasshopper is the victim of 30 million years of greenism. Kermit the frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when he sings "It's Not Easy Being Green."

Bill and Hillary Clinton make a special guest appearance on the CBS evening news and tell a concerned Dan Rather That they will do everything they can for the grasshopper who has been denied the prosperity he deserves by those who benefited unfairly during the summer, or as Bill refers to it, the "Temperatures Of The 80's".

Finally the EEOC drafts the "Economic Equity and Anti-Greenism Act" RECTRO-ACTIVE 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 Retro-Active taxes, his home is confiscated by the government.

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, Bill Clinton is standing before a wildly applauding group of Democrats announcing that a new era of "Fairness" has dawned in America.

Such a clear picture of the media, ACLU, Clintons, NAA's and liberal American society.

This is good, but....

Don't you mean NAAGB - The National Association for the advancement of Green Bugs?

You forgot to mention that the California Association of Green Bugs said that since we are obviously discrminated by ants in the East the courts should rule that ants must now provide for all illegal Green Bugs in California. Ants must provide for all medical costs,schooling in 37 different languages and a free home for all,Green Bug liquor and no pestices for any reason.

Both Al and Jessie are involved with demonstrations in San Mateo CA ( home of our good EO friend Tall Cal) that Green Bugs should get all considerations when it comes to eating herbs and other green stuff. Brown Ants have always discriminated against Green Bugs thus they are now on the bottom of the promotion boards. A Green bug has an automatic 50 point advantage for promotions.

Breaking News - this has gone international

The UN’s Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) has been directed by the President of the United Nations General Assembly, H.E. Mr. Jan Eliasson to start investigating the violations of the rights of all green creatures in the United States.

Mr. Jan Eliasson said “This has come to our attention and we must not delay in taking action needed to correct this injustice. Further more, I am introducing a resolution condemning the United States for their insensitivity towards the green creatures and demand that they abide by the rulings of the OHCHR and another resolution to demand that all countries run up more parking violations in New York and not pay the billâ€

The Secretary-General today announced the formation of the World Creatures Council (WCC) with the passing of resolution 60/400 in the general assembly. The WCC in conjunction with the OHCHR will oversee the rights of the green creatures in the United States. He stressed that this injustice will require constant monitoring to ensure no more violations happen and is proposing that the government of the United States allow the UN to register and monitor all green creatures for at least 20 years to ensure it is done to the standards of the world.

Canada, UK and Japan expressed their disappointment with the lack of green creature’s civil rights. They have stated in an open letter to the Secretary of State about the inequity involved and how progressive the US has been on the world stage.

Other countries have expressed their opinion including Iran, Cuba and Sudan. Iran’s president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad sent a 15 page letter to President Bush which he spoke of dreaming of a day where Muslins and the green creatures can live side by side without the repressive imperialistic United States. Fidel Castro said that Cuba has openly welcomed any oppressed creature in the past and will now help anyone green creature to immigrate to Cuba through Cuba’s embassies. The Sudanese president Omar Hasan Ahmad al-Bashir in Khartoum has stated that they welcome the green cretures not based on rights violations but rather he thinks that they would make great food and will eat anything.
