    Who will help me plant my wheat?" asked the little red hen.
    "Not I," said the cow.
    "Not I," said the duck.
    "Not I," said the pig.
    "Not I," said the goose.

    "Then I will do it by myself," said the little red hen, and so she did.

    She planted her crop, and the wheat grew very tall and ripened into golden grain.
    "Who will help me reap my wheat?" asked the little red hen.
    "Not I," said the duck..
    "Out of my classification," said the pig.
    "I'd lose my seniority," said the cow.
    "I'd lose my unemployment compensation," said the goose.

    "Then I will do it by myself," said the little red hen, and so she did.

    At last it came time to bake the bread. "Who will help me bake the bread?" asked the little red hen.
    "That would be overtime for me," said the cow.
    "I'd lose my welfare benefits," said the duck.
    "I'm a dropout and never learned how," said the pig.
    "If I'm to be the only helper, that's discrimination," said the goose.

    "Then I will do it by myself," said the little red hen and so she did.

    She baked five loaves and held them up for all of her neighbors to see. They wanted some and, in fact,
    demanded a share. But the little red hen said, "No, I shall eat all five loaves."

    "Excess profits!" cried the cow. (Nancy Pelosi)
    "Capitalist leech!" screamed the duck. (Barbara Boxer)
    "I demand equal rights!" yelled the goose. (Jesse Jackson)
    The pig just grunted in disdain. (Ted Kennedy)
    And they all painted 'Unfair!' picket signs and marched around and around the little red hen, shouting obscenities..

    Then the farmer (Obama) came. He said to the little red hen, "You must not be so greedy."

    "But I earned the bread," said the little red hen.

    "Exactly," said Barack the farmer. "That is what makes our free enterprise system so wonderful. Anyone in the barnyard
    can earn as much as he wants. But under our modern government regulations, the productive workers must divide the
    fruits of their labor with those who are lazy and idle.."

    And they all lived happily ever after, including the little red hen, who smiled and clucked, "I am grateful, for now I truly
    understand."

    But her neighbors became quite disappointed in her. She never again baked bread because she joined the 'party' and
    got her bread free. And all the Democrats smiled. 'Fairness' had been established.

    Individual initiative had died, but nobody noticed; perhaps no one cared...so long as there was free bread that 'the rich'
    were paying for.

    EPILOGUE

    Bill Clinton is getting $12 million for his memoirs.
    Hillary got $8 million for hers.
    That's $20 million for the memories from two people, who for eight years repeatedly testified, under oath, that they couldn't
    remember anything.

    IS THIS A GREAT BARNYARD OR WHAT

    But the little red hen, being still ambitious and needing something to do in her idle time, finally did bake a new loaf of bread. She divided it up, and sold it to the farmer, who printed up a new stack of money to pay for it, then divided it equally among all of the animals.

    Meanwhile, the pig ate some wild mushrooms, not knowing what they were.

    After eating the bread, everyone was well except t he pig, who was certain that the bread had made him ill. He found a lawyer, and sued the little red hen for every red cent. The lawyer then recruited the rest of the animals to join in a class action lawsuit.

    Now, the little red hen is glad that there is a welfare state, as she has not a single grain of wheat left.

    The pig, having discovered that the mushrooms made him feel really really good just before they made him sick, and that eating yet another mushroom make him feel even better. Soon, he began selling his mushrooms to the others.

    The farmer, seeing that the mushrooms were killing his stock off slowly, forbade the pig from selling mushrooms.

    Pig, ignoring the farmer's orders, kept on selling. He was getting richer than the little red hen ever thought of being, and his life was filled with mushrooms, corn, and sows. He was happy.
    Until, that is, rat saw what was happening, shot pig, and took over his mushroom business.
