A Fairy Tale for Our Time.

Received this from BCL via email. Thanks Love. Great story for our time…

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

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 it?’

‘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 did.
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.

‘Out of my classification,’ 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 did.

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 see.
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)

Nancy Pelosi, the lazy cow.

Nancy Pelosi, the lazy cow.

‘Capitalist leech!’ screamed the duck. (Barbara Boxer)

Barbara Boxer, the farked up duck.

Barbara Boxer, the farked up duck.

‘I demand equal rights!’ yelled the goose. (Jesse Jackson)

Jesse Jacked, the cooked-up goose.

Jesse Jacked, the cooked-up goose.

The pig just grunted in disdain. (Ted Kennedy)

Ted "The Killer" Kennedy. The picture says it all.

Ted "The Killer" Kennedy. The picture says it all.

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.’

Obama, the farmer of soul.

Obama, the farmer of soul.

‘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 because she joined the ‘party’ and got her bread free.

And all the Democrats smiled. ‘Fairness’ had been established.

Individual initiative had died, but nobody noticed; perhaps no one
cared…so long as there was free bread that ‘the rich’ were paying for.


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

    Nancy Pelousy will become Nancy Peloser !

    At first Teddy I was a bit confused by your comment (read it before my morning coffee). Then slowly it sank in. But I think Pelosi has already become a Peloser, and has been for a long time. Ms. Ruby and I award you the Golden Bone Award for your insight.

    Here’s how the story really goes, please pass it around:

    And the little red hen said, “who will help me sow the wheat?”
    “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 did.
    She planted her crop, and 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, “wheat from Indian is much cheaper.”

    “Not I,” said the pig, “I’m too busy finding ways around health and safety rules”

    “Not I,” said the cow, “I’d dirty my million dollar office,”

    “Isn’t that what illegal immigrants are for?” said the goose.

    “Then I will do it by myself,” said the little red hen, and so she did.

    At last it came time to bake the bread. “Who will help me bake the bread?” asked the little red hen.

    “I’ve already made enough money for 100 loaves by selling futures and options on
    the wheat you grew,” said the cow.

    “Only if you maximize our profits by baking it at the Chinese bread factory down the road,” said the duck.

    “I get all the free bread I want from the corporate welfare programs arranged by the politicians I funded” said the goose.

    “If I’m to be the helper, that’s like being a board member, so I should get a million dollar bonus,” said the pig.

    “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 see.
    They all wanted some and, in fact, threatened to throw her out on the street if she didn’t hand over all the bread.
    But the little red hen said, “No, I shall eat all five loaves.”

    “You have to feed us or the whole country will starve” screamed the duck. (Hank Paulsen)

    “I need to sell all five loafs to help pay for my corporate jet” yelled the goose. (John Thain)

    “You’re a gay liberal terrorist” cried the cow. (Dick Cheney)

    The pig just drooled and foamed at the mouth in a prescription drug induced hypocritical frenzy. (Rush Limbaugh)

    And they all painted ‘Cut Taxes!’ picket signs and marched around and around the little red hen, shouting “Liberal! Socialist!”.

    Then the farmer (Obama) came. He said to all the animals, “You must not be so greedy and irresponsible.”

    “But we’re used to taking all of the bread: our lifestyles demand it and anyway the hen is used to having nothing,” they said.

    “Exactly,” said Barack the farmer. “That is what makes unregulated free enterprise so dangerous.
    Those in the barnyard who earn the most begin to think that the rules don’t apply to them.
    Worse, to support their lavish lifestyles, they begin to lie, cheat, and steal from those who have less.
    Without carefully planned government regulations, the administrators and executives will steal all the fruits of those doing the real work
    and give nothing back, until one day nothing is left and we all starve.”

    The little red hen, smiled and clucked, “I am grateful, for now we all recognize the importance of doing real work and making real products in our own barnyard.”

    But the neighbors at the corporate farm next door became quite upset because she made them look greedy, lazy, and incompetent.
    And they stole the barnyard in a hostile takeover, and to maximize profits,
    they laid off all the farm animals whose taxes were being used to prop up the barnyard
    and fund hostile takeovers
    until no workers were left and every barnyard in the country went
    bankrupt and nobody could grow wheat, or harvest, or bake bread.

    Then, the conservatives smiled and said, “Now they’ll find out why we
    cling to our guns”.

  5. Stop it!
    This is incredibly stupid how people are mean to the government. I know , maybe teddy is a little overweight but that means that you are too and to be making fun of important people is a disbelief to our country, he has cancer and if you are making fun of him like that then when you get it, you won’t be laughing so hard anymore!!!(there is a one in 3 chance that you can get cancer!)

  6. Your worst nightmare says:

    You sound like you’ve been intimately acquainted with farm animals for a long, long time. Maybe that’s what’s “farked” up your minds. Good luck getting a happy life – you got a long LONG way to go…

    • Doc says:

      Actually YWN, your type is my worst nightmare. People like you would give up your rights because your new leader, Dear Comrade Obama says that is the way to go. And if it came down to it, I would rather live with a lot of 4 legged animals than 2 legged idiots like you. But, this is just my humble opinion.

  7. BF Bastardo says:

    You’re not very funny (well, I’ve not seen your face, but in print, you’re about as funny as a slum-lord). The sad thing is, that this story (and being incredibly un-funny) is standard fare for Conservatives. Because you made one huge, clumsy error – you’re equating The hard working Little Red Hen with conservative business people but it just doesn’t fit – as THEY DON’T EVER DO THE ACTUAL WORK!

    Your whole story balances on the rickety premise that somehow, all employers are (1)hard working, super generous who are burdened with (2)slack employees, (3)regulations, unions and government and really need a hug and a big thank-you from all of us.
    Worst. Premise. Ever.

    Here are the facts – in short.
    The whole point of employing someone is so that:
    (a) You don’t have to do the work.
    (b) You can pay them less than the ACTUAL value of their labours
    and therefore, profit form them.

    The majority of workers all over the planet put in a fair days work – and always have done. Many bosses whine that employees aren’t ‘committed to their job’ because they leave at 5pm while the boss stays until 8pm. If it’s YOUR business, then of COURSE you’ll stay late. You have a vested interest in the business on MANY levels. If you want that level of commitment from staff, GIVE THEM A SHARE of the profits as well as a wage. Many business (in the MODERN WORLD of Europe) do this and it’s worked WONDERS for all parties.

    If employers on-mass treated employees well and made safe, healthy products as a matter of course, then we’d not need regulations or unions, but the sad truth is that far too many employers would, given the opportunity, underpay and maltreat their staff and produce sub-standard, poor quality goods. Just like we’d all speed like idiots if there were no road rules. Regulations and unions HAD TO HAPPEN because TOO MANY staff were being poorly treated and shoddy products were KILLING people. So, if you’re a good employer (like my boss), but still whine about paperwork, regulations and unions – THEN TOUGH SHIT – that’s life. I’m a GREAT driver, trained at the elite Police Driver Training School and am more than capable of driving safely well above the speed limit – but I OBEY THE RULES and have never ONCE thought I was being unfairly treated by the LAW as these laws are simply there to make sure that those of you who DO drive like shit don’t kill each other too often.

    Finally – I’m sick of you conservatives whining about “Government”.
    The government is not some race of aliens who landed and decided to boss us around – the government is US – they are OUR people.
    We VOTE for them, we put them there, to represent ALL OF US because without government, we’d have chaos. Anarchy even!

    Yes, Conservatives and (ooh I hate these morons) “Libertarians” are REALLY closet anarchists! They don’t want ANY rules of civilized society. They’d rather the good old days where they could rape, plunder and exploit to their hearts content. Well bring it on fat boys, because I GUARANTEE, that if we had the truly ‘free’ society you want, then there’s not going to be anyone to stop us – the young, strong, healthy workers from storming your gated communities and gutting your pig-like torsos for fun. (But not profit).

    Love and biscuits.

    PS: We in the REAL world just LOVE how you think Clinton and Obama are ‘Liberals’. Those guys, as cool as they are, (and clever than any conservative has ever been) have economic policies to THE RIGHT of even the British Conservative Party (a.k.a. The Tories) who are regarded as THE standard bearers for Conservative politics the world over.

    • Doc says:

      Wow, don’t we live in a fairytale world BFB. I hope you are happy in your own private world with your rose colored glasses. You say the government is us? Have you seen the protests against Obama’s type of government? Or do your have such narrow vision that you only see what the government wants you to see. You really trust the mainstream media and newspapers? Everyone of them thinks that Comrade Obama is the new Messiah.

      Enjoy your world Comrade BFB

      • BFB says:

        Ha I LOVE it when the greedy, scared, weak, and ill-informed among us call anyone with a conscience “comrade”. What a laugh! I bet you think you’re Christians too? (well, it’s not possible to be a Christian if you’re right-wing. It just can’t be done. Republicans are JUST the type of people Jesus suffered under and warned us against! Remember the camel/needle thing?) anyhow, listen up and listen good. All slinging aside. I’m serious here scaredy-cats. I guarantee you, YOU WILL NOT SUFFER ONE IOTA under Obama. He’s not a ‘lefty’, his policies are centre-right and the only thing he might do is bring you into the 21st century and give you the high quality health care that every nation in THE WESTERN WORLD enjoys EXCEPT the backwards USA. And you fat buggers could do with some decent health care!

        And as for the mainstream US media? No, I don’t believe them as they’re run by people like you. The western world STILL laughs at the CNN crap you people gobbled up during Desert Storm. You got one-sided propaganda that Stalin would be proud of! In the UK, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and even South Africa, they got ALL the facts in their news.

        As for protests agusnst Obama, there’s been nothing except a few paranoid, racist zealots. He was voted in by a MAJORITY of voters. Without having to cheat like Bush did with Florida. If you’re not happy with your elected representatives, just vote for new ones. It’s easy.

    PS: Apologies for any spelling issues or typos, I’m typing this one-fingered in my iPod Touch on the train.

    PPS: Doc, I loved your four-legged comment. I wish you Americans knew what irony was, then you’d see how funny that was! 🙂
