THE NEW ANT and the Grasshopper, Two Versions: I love this one
The ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER

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..

CBC, CTV, Global, City TV and CPAC 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.

Canadians’ are 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 Canada AM 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 the SEIU group singing, “We shall overcome.”

BLM shows up in Canada to points out that the Ant, although Black, has red skinned and brown skinned cousins, is probably not really Black per say and therefore really doesn’t know what it’s like to suffer as a Black and try’s to hy-jack the airwaves for their own moment in the press.

Then David Suzuki’s assistant has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper while he damns the ants. David Suzuki can not attend as he has contractual commitments to appear on his CBC show for which he is paid over two million dollars a year to complain that rich people do not care about the global warming and climate change conditions creating such a hot summer and cold winter.

Justin Trudeau, Tom Mulcaire, and Elizabeth May condemn the ant and blames Stephen Harper, Ezra Levant and Rebel Media, Sun News, Donald Trump and the Alliance Party of Canada plus even the Past 3 Popes for the grasshopper’s plight..

Mozes Znimer and Ed Brodbent exclaim on a Special on City TV 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, a Coalition of Liberal, NDP, and Green drafts the Economic Equity & anti-Grasshopper Taxation 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 Advocate for Equality
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 and cockroaches 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 who you listen to and how you vote.

It’s the reincarnation of Daddy Turdos National Energy Board tax on the west…period!

Andrew – the only thing growing in Ontario is an unserviceable debt and inflation. Vibrant economies do not produce governments with crushing debt and who are on the national dole for equalization welfare.

Carbon pricing is such a transparent con. All this is is another commie tax on productivity which will ultimately be paid by consumers as the costs are passed on in inflationary pricing.
Don’t believe me? Check your grocery list this year against the same items last year – this is all carbon taxing on producers and the supply chain being piled on to the end user.

I hear the wails of bum-hurt from consumers every time I shop and I just remind them if they voted Liberal they voted for carbon fueled inflation.

Like all koolaid drinking commies, the facts get all fucked up in the translation. Charles is right with his observations, I’m in BC right now and there are no jobs to speak of and I’ve spoke to many that are being hosed on their EI. Btw the carbon tax will happen, but will it be misappropriated like all other taxes in this country, what a surprise huh?

“When the next power rate increase occurs there, people will start abandoning the province en mass, more so than already evident with the loss of hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs and businesses”

Ontario’s population has grown, and it has net created jobs. Manufacturing has been more than made up in for example the financial services or high tech industries

“Andrew you are completely retarded. Ontario and BC don’t have a strong economy. Andrew you should drive through BC and just see how strong your economy is. Town after town are being sold off or completely abandoned. BC strong economy, what a fucking joke. As for Ontario you retard. Here we have every major corporation moving there head offices out of the province. This province is the most “in debt” free standing state our province. "

Take it up with StatsCan, it’s their statistics. Ontario and BC have recorded the best GDP growth in Canada for at least two years.
As for the head offices, we merely have to point out the multiple “inversions” into Ontario to take advantage of its favourable business climate, most famously that of Restaurant Brands International, the new owners of Tim Hortons.

ANDREW STEPHENSON: So Ontario is kicking ass on the economic side are they. Would that be the reason they are in line to RECEIVE transfer payments now? When the next power rate increase occurs there, people will start abandoning the province en mass, more so than already evident with the loss of hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs and businesses. As for your carbon neutral tax in BC, really? Its easy to manipulate numbers and twist words, thought you were a bit smarter than that, I have to think CHARLES MOULTON is right.

NDP SUCKS said, ‘I don’t think we are going to survive the latest round of libtard and communist governments so when we hit rock bottom don’t forget who created this nightmare.’
You are right and I know what you mean, but, don’t forget if it weren’t for the retards that voted in this fucked up retard Turdo and his asinine government we would not be talking about this. So yeah the libtards are a heavy weight around our necks, but I sure as hell blame the retards that voted for this lefty, screwed up jackoff that goes around looking for opportunities to get in front of the camera.
I have said it many times before and I will keep saying it over and over until it gets done – this POS has to be stopped NOW, not later, so rise up and hang this POS along with all his ministers.

Fucking libtards taxing and sucking the life out of the country until there is nothing left. For what, just to make themselves feel better and more virtuous. What a bunch of pathetic and spoiled children these libtards punks are, just a collection of spoiled little petulant and greedy children. When all the money is given or frittered away what are they going to do then? Oh yeah, I remember. The citizens will have to vote in the conservatives to clean up the mess and pay the bills. I don’t think we are going to survive the latest round of libtard and communist governments so when we hit rock bottom don’t forget who created this nightmare.

Also Andrew, the oil consumption you speak about. Is caused by people that don’t even have the money to travel any where. Fuck are you ever retarded. I mean Jesus, just in case you don’t understand. YOU ARE RETARDED.

They also “guaranteed” that BC’s provincial carbon tax would fail.

Eight years later, there is no indication that this is the case. Fossil fuel consumption is down and the economy has grown well, horse-trading with Ontario for the strongest in Canada.

This is all based on post-normal science, where facts are uncertain; values are in dispute; stakes are high; and decisions are urgent. Our quality of life depends on access to RELIABLE energy
