OLD VERSION

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and storing for the winter.
Grasshopper thinks that ant is a fool, laughs, dances and plays the summer away ..
Winter came, ant is warm and well fed.
Grasshopper has no food or shelter so he dies out in the cold. Moral of this story: be responsible for yourself!

___________________________________

The current version .

Ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain at all summer long, building his house and storing for winter.
Grasshopper thinks ant is a fool, laughs, dances and plays the summer away. Winter came, shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands an explanation why the ant is warm and well fed, while he is cold and hungry.

CBS , NBC , PBS , CNN , ABC broadcast video of the shivering grasshopper together with that of an ant in his comfortable home.

America is so shaken by the sharp contrast.
How can it be that in a country with such a wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer?
Kermit the Frog appears on an Oprah talk show with a grasshopper, and all cry when they sing "It's not easy to be green."
ACORN three arranges demonstration in front of the ant's house , where the group singing "We Shall Overcome." Father Jeremiah Wright on his knees prays to God for the grasshopper. President Obama condemns the ant and blames President Bush, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope for the grasshopper suffering...
Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid explain in the interview with Larry King that the ant is rich from for the exploitation of the grasshopper, and both require an immediate tax increase on the ant to make him pay for his share.
Finally, government introduces a project of the Law of Economic Equality retroactive to the beginning of summer.
The ant is fined for the fact that he didn't hire a proportionate number of green beetles, and, as he had nothing left to pay the taxes, the State Green King confiscates his house and gives it to grasshopper.

Ant eats the last remnants of his stock in the State House which he lives now. His old house is destroyed before our eyes, because the grasshopper is not able to maintain it. Ant disappears, no one has ever seen him. Grasshopper is found dead in an incident involving drugs, and an abandoned house populated now by a gang of spiders who terrorize once prosperous and peaceful region . ..
The whole country is destroyed.

Moral: Be ​​careful when you vote. By the way, in America, in some places hang posters:
"In past elections, you have proven that you are not racist. In future elections prove that you're not an idiot. "
