It's time to re-evaluate our involvement

It's time to re-evaluate our involvement.

Every day there are news reports about more deaths.
Every night on TV are photos of death and destruction.
Why are we still there?

We occupied this land, which we had to take by force,
but it causes us nothing but trouble. Why are we still
there?

Their government is unstable, and they have no leadership.
Why are we still there?

Many of their people are uncivilized, or at least don't
speak English. Why are we still there?

There are more than 1,000 religious sects and almost
as many languages and dialects, many of which we don't understand.
Why are we still there?

We can't even secure the borders. Why are we still there?

They are billions of dollars in debt and it will cost
billions more to rebuild, which we can't afford. Why
are we still there?

It is becoming clear............................................





WE MUST ABANDON CALIFORNIA!!!!

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
he's 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.


MODERN AMERICAN 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
he's 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
others are cold and starving. CBS, NBC and ABC show up to provide
pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to video of the ant in his
comfortable home with a table filled with food.

America is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can it be that, in a
country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?

Then a representative of the NAGB (The National Association of Green
Bugs) shows up on Nightline and charges the ant with green bias, and
makes the case that the grasshopper is the victim of 30 million years of
greenism. Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper, and
everybody cries when he sings "It's not easy being green." Bill and
Hillary Clinton make a special guest appearance on the CBS Evening News
to tell a concerned Dan Rather that they will do everything they can for
the grasshopper who has been denied the prosperity he deserves by those
who benefited unfairly during the Reagan summers. Richard Gephardt
exclaims in an interview with Peter Jennings that the ant has gotten
rich off the back of the grasshopper, and calls for an immediate tax
hike on the ant to make him pay his "fair share." Finally, the EEOC
drafts the "Economic Equity and Anti-Greenism 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. Hillary
gets her old law firm to represent the grasshopper in a defamation suit
against the ant, and the case is tried before a panel of federal hearing
officers that Bill appointed from a list of single-parent welfare moms
who can only hear cases on Thursday's between 1:30 and 3 PM.

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's in, which just happens to
be the ant's old house, crumbles around him since he doesn't know how to
maintain it. The ant has disappeared in the snow. And on the TV, which
the grasshopper bought by selling most of the ant's food, they are
showing Bill Clinton standing before a wildly applauding group of
Democrats announcing that a new era of "fairness" has dawned in America.
