Farmer John

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

John the farmer was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young layers (hens), called "pullets", and ten roosters, whose job it was to fertilize
the eggs.

The farmer kept records and any rooster that didn't perform went into the soup pot and was replaced. That took an awful lot of his time, so he bought a set of
tiny bells and attached them to his roosters. Each bell had a different tone so John could tell from a distance, which rooster was performing. Now he could sit
on the porch and fill out an efficiency report simply by listening to the bells.

The farmer's favorite rooster was old Butch, a very fine specimen he was, too But on this particular morning John noticed old Butch's bell hadn't rung at all!
John went to investigate. The other roosters were chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing. The pullets, hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover.

But to Farmer John's amazement, old Butch had his bell in hi s beak, so it couldn't ring. He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one. John was so proud of old Butch, he entered him in the Renfrew County Fair and he became an overnight sensation among the judges.

The result...The judges not only awarded old Butch the No Bell Piece Prize but they awarded him the Pulletsurprise as well.

Clearly old Butch was a politician in the making: who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most highly coveted awards on our planet
by being the best at sneaking up on the populace and screwing them when they weren't paying attention.

Vote carefully this year...the bells are not always audible.

That is not fair. We have some of the best politicians money can buy.

Who told you life is fair?

If you want honest government--raise your bid!


Oh, wait...:confused22:


I've got a little question for you all. Why is it that when there were 3 million US citizens we could have Presidents like Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, etc.

Now, there's 300 million of us and we have to choose between the likes of McCain, H Clinton, Obama? Now go back and look at the choices for the last (you pick the number) __ elections. When do YOU think we last had a candidate you'd be proud to support?

I don't think I would have to go back any further than Andrew Jackson.

Funny stuff. Even when the bells are audible, the pullets of this country don't realize the roosters are doing a job on them.:biggrin:
