Bill and Hillary Clinton make a special guest appearance on the CBS Evening News to 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 Reagan summers.
Richard Gephardt exclaims in an interview with Peter Jennings that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and calls for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his “fair share”.
Finally, the EEOC drafts the “Economic Equity and Anti-Greenism Act” retroactive to the beginning of the summer. The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs. Having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, the ant’s home is confiscated by the government.
Hillary gets her old law firm to represent the grasshopper in a defamation suit against the ant, and the case is tried before a panel of federal hearing officers that Bill appointed from a list of single-parent welfare moms who can only hear cases on Thursday’s between 1:30 and 3 PM.
The ant loses the case.
The story ends as we see the grasshopper finishing up the last bits of 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. 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.
YES!! I used to love it.
Sorry this is a late reply, I just saw the question...did you ever see a urologist to rule out kidney stones or any other kidney disorder.
Since this post was over a year old and no one answered you I answered too quickly according to what I had gone through. Tink is correct about problems with disks or possible arthritis and that should be checked out first.
Cool but expensive...I'd rather have one of my horses if I could afford that. "The Red Baron" is a name I used in a show for a sorrel horse I was riding when I broke a three state record jumping. Remembering that brought tears to my eyes...he was my first and died a violent death. This would be a hard decision...I'm not good at making choices. Maybe I'd rather have my Appaloosa. I was riding him in the parade. I lost most pictures in a fire but his papers survived...go figure. That's why I wanted to find the video of the parade. He was a grandson of Secretariat.
I dunno now, this day & age I'd be concerned about vandalism (breakage, not theft) and now I feel entrapment because I could not resist answering this after I saw "The Red Baron". Sniff.
