Download File The following is a KSCO commentary. Here is Kay Zwerling: This is called ?The Aunt and the Grasshopper?. And there are two different versions and two different morals. Here is the 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, 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 moral of the story: Be responsible for yourself.Here is the modern 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, 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 others are cold and starving. CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, and ABC 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?. ACORN stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the group singing ?We Shall Overcome?.Reverend Jeremiah Wright then has the group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper’s sake.Nancy Pelosi and 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. 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. The story ends as we see the grasshopper finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the government house he is in, which just happens to be the ant’s old house, crumbles around him because he does not maintain it. The ant has disappeared in the snow. 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 once peaceful neighborhood. Moral of the story: Be careful how you vote in 2010. For KSCO, this is Kay Zwerling. copyright 2009
