Earlier today, I left the following Random Dropping on Professor Mondo's comment board. I liked it so much, I promoted it to archivable post tonight.
A unionized public employee, a Democrat politician, a member of the Tea Party, and a Big Corp CEO are sitting at a table. In the middle of the table there is a plate with a dozen cookies on it.
The TEA Party member used to add 3 cookies to the plate and take out 1, but the economy sucks now; so the TEA Party member added 2 cookies, and took out 2.
The Big Corp CEO used to add 7 cookies to the plate, but the economy sucks now and he has learned about cronyism; so the Big Corp CEO added 6 cookies and took out 3.
The Democrat politician redistributed 12 of the cookies to welfare state dependents and special interests.
The unionized public employee pitched a fit because there were only 3 cookies left, and he had negotiated with the Democrat politician for 9.
