Three Big Pigs

Three Big Pigs: Democrat, Republican, and Tea Party
Once upon a time there were three pigs who got too big for their own epidermis. One was a democrat, affectionately known as an ass; one was a republican, often referred to as the elephant in the room no one wanted to talk about; while the third big pig was really a mad hatter in disguise and the head of the Tea Party movement.

None of the three pigs really cared about the people they served, only their own self-serving. And believe me, there was a lot of self-serving going on. Campaign spending had run amok. Special interest groups courted the three big pigs on a daily basis. Everyone was in bed with everyone else both metaphorically speaking and literally. You get the picture.

Then one day something happened. People decided not to feed the pigs anymore. People also started investigating big business, HMOs, and the education industry. The three big pigs started to lose weight. There was no more campaigning, no more war, no more contributions and the greasing of palms by those with deep pockets. It was just awful for the three big pigs!

However, it was wonderful for the people, of the people, and by the people because they decided to have a lean meat pig roast. I heard certain people even brought their own homemade BBQ sauce and baked beans.

"animal Farm" been round for years.

people assumed it was only meant for the communists.
It applies to everyone.

if this book is not banned in US schools it soon will be if the Tea party gets there (their) hands on it.

HA! I forgot all about Animal Farm. It's been years since I read it. I think you may be correct, lightly, about the Tea Party banning books. That's next.

Ah yes, Animal Farm. One of the best books ever written and still relevant today. Orwell was way ahead of his time . . .

I can't recall a more dangerous time in American politics. Not even the Goldwater campaign of the mid-60's, with all its nuclear shading.

One particularly disturbing product of the intensely conservative bent of Republican politics that I have noticed lately is the re-emergence of surprisingly racist comments in casual discourse. As though closet racists and even apparently reformed racists have suddenly felt free to speak out.

I can't imagine where all this is leading, but I don't think I'm going to enjoy the ride.

I've been doing some research, and there's some serious political horse pucky going on out there. Yes, Newt, it's very disturbing.

Some are regressing to a dangerous place in our society. There will be more on this blog.

Itsme, it's scary how some of the old classics resurrect themselves into future truths.

Ha! That is awesome and so true!

Christina, thanks for the comment. We need more bunnies to run for office and I don't mean the Playboy kind.
