What has America become?

 

Tawas City is on Lake Huron in Northern Michigan – opposite the “thumb of The Michigan mitten”. This is getting nationwide attention. Where is Tawas City , MI ? Actually, it is on Lake Huron and has a population of just over 2,000! Go figure. A Small MICHIGAN NEWSPAPER EDITORIAL. Short and to the point.

Only in America: The Top Ten

Only in America: The Top Ten

1) Only in America could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000 a plate campaign fund raising event.

2) Only in America could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when we have a black President, a black Attorney General, and roughly 18% of the federal workforce is black. 12% of the population is black.

3) Only in America could we have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner, the head of the Treasury Department and Charles Rangel who once ran the Ways and Means Committee, BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.

4) Only in America can we have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.

5) Only in America would we make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege while we discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just become American citizens.

6) Only in America could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country’s Constitution be thought of as “extremists.”

7) Only in America could you need to present a driver’s license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.

8) Only in America could people demand the government investigate whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas went up when the return on equity invested in a major U.S. oil company (Marathon Oil) is less than half of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).

9) Only in America could the government collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a trillion dollars more than it has per year for total spending of $7 million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn’t have nearly enough money.

10) Only in America could the rich people who pay 86% of all income taxes be accused of not paying their “fair share” by people who don’t pay any income taxes at all.

A modern day twist on an old story

A modern day twist on an old story

  The ANT
  AND THE
GRASSHOPPER

This one is a little different….
  Two Different Versions …
   Two Different Morals

OLD VERSION

The ant  works
hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper
thinks the ant is 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.

MORAL OF THE OLD STORY:

Be responsible for yourself!
 
 
  MODERN
  VERSION

The ant works hard
in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house
and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper  thinks the ant
is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the shivering grasshopper
calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be
allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving.

ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN,
and MSNBC show up to
provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper
next to a video of the ant
in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.

America is stunned by the sharp contrast.

How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper
is allowed to suffer so?

Kermit the Frog appears
on Oprah
with the grasshopper
and everybody cries when they sing, ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green …’

Occupy the Anthill stages
a demonstration in front of the ant’s
house where the news stations film an SEIU group singing, We shall overcome.

Then Rev. Jeremiah Wright
has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper’s sake,
while he damns the ants .

President Obama  condemns the ant
and blames
President Bush 43, President Bush 41, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the
Pope
for the grasshopper’s
plight.

Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid
exclaim in an interview with Larry
King  that the ant has
gotten rich off the back of the
grasshopper ,
and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant  to make him pay his fair share.

Finally, the EEOC drafts
the Economic Equity &
Anti-Grasshopper Act
retroactive 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 retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government  Green  Czar
and given to the  grasshopper .

The story ends as we see the grasshopper
and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant’s  food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant’s old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper  doesn’t maintain it.

The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.

The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken
over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the ramshackle, once prosperous and peaceful, neighborhood.

The entire Nation collapses
bringing the rest
of the free world with it.

MORAL OF THE STORY:

Be careful how you vote in 2012.

I’ve sent this to you because I believe that you are an ant
not a  grasshopper !

Make sure that you pass
this on to other ants .

Don’t bother sending
it on to any grasshoppers
because they wouldn’t
understand it, anyway
