The Ant and the Grasshopper in 2011

... in South Africa ...

ORIGINAL 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 STORY:
Be responsible for yourself!

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 and dances and plays the summer away.

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

SABC1, 2 and 3 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. The world 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 Good Morning with the grasshopper, and everybody cries when they sing, 'It's Not Easy Being Green.'

Demonstrations are held in front of the ant's house where the news stations film the group singing, 'We shall overcome.'

TV commentators explain that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and there are calls for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

Finally, the Government 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 and handed to relatives of the grasshopper.

The grasshopper instigates a lawsuit against the ant, and the case is tried under the watchful eyes of the trade unions.

The ant loses the case.

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 doesn't 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 neighbourhood.

MORAL OF THIS STORY:
Be VERY careful how you vote in 2011!!

ACTION: Even chewing gum sells sex these days!

What used to be a childhood pass-time has now been fashioned as a new draw card for sexual activity, perhaps even to the point of sharing your girlfriend with others. Is this really how far Beechies wants to push this envelope?

Just today I sent an email to the South African importers of Beechies on behalf of the Biblical Christian Network (BCN).

As parents and Christians we need to stand up against this type of sexualisation of our children via the previously innocent activity of [“insert innocent activity here”]! e.g. chewing gum! We need to stand up today so that our children can have a smut free tomorrow! Once again, in 10 or 20 years from now, what will you tell your child hen he comes to and asks: “Mommy, Daddy, what did you do when Beechies made chewing gum about sex? Why did you leave it to others to fix?”

Please, make a conscious decision today to start doing something for the future of this country. Don’t just sit back and expect others to do it. What if they are thinking the same? Please read the Action Alert from Errol Naidoo from FPI, and write to the relevant persons he mentions. Then, stop buying those Beechies, even if you or your kids are craving to chew on them! Let Beechies feel it where it counts, their bank balance!

I will vote ANC! SHOCKER!

. . . if it is for the ANC's demise, I will!

Julius Malema, that perpetual firebrand of the ANC Youth League, who wants the boers/farmers (whites) shot, says that we should vote for the ANC to keep Nelson Mandela alive.

Now, I know there are some out there who swoon at the name of Nelson Mandela, but the fact is that we do not vote for parties to keep personalities alive. We vote for what is best for South Africa, and anything ANC is NOT good for South Africa, and that includes Nelson Mandela. He may have been good for South Africa in some respects, but under his watch, almost 1,000,000 people have been brutally murdered. And, yes, that was after his release from prison. I am not even thinking here about the atrocities he was in charge of while a terrorist!
