These are two children stories that have great morals that apply to A LOT of scenarios. If u take it literally, it applies to surivalism.



The Little Red Hen
Once upon a time, there was a little red hen who lived on a farm . She was friends with a lazy dog , a sleepy cat , and a noisy yellow duck .



One day the little red hen found some seeds on the ground. The little red hen had an idea. She would plant the seeds .
The little red hen asked her friends, "Who will help me plant the seeds ?"

"Not I," barked the lazy dog .
"Not I," purred the sleepy cat .
"Not I," quacked the noisy yellow duck .

"Then I will," said the little red hen . So the little red hen planted the seeds all by herself.


When the seeds had grown, the little red hen asked her friends, "Who will help me cut the wheat ?"
"Not I," barked the lazy dog .
"Not I," purred the sleepy cat .
"Not I," quacked the noisy yellow duck .

"Then I will," said the little red hen . So the little red hen cut the wheat all by herself.



When all the wheat was cut, the little red hen asked her friends, "Who will help me take the wheat to the mill to be ground into flour ?"
"Not I," barked the lazy dog .
"Not I," purred the sleepy cat .
"Not I," quacked the noisy yellow duck .

"Then I will," said the little red hen . So the little red hen brought the wheat to the mill all by herself, ground the wheat into flour , and carried the heavy sack of flour back to the farm .


The tired little red hen asked her friends, "Who will help me bake the bread ?"
"Not I," barked the lazy dog .
"Not I," purred the sleepy cat .
"Not I," quacked the noisy yellow duck .

"Then I will," said the little red hen . So the little red hen baked the bread all by herself.


When the bread was finished, the tired little red hen asked her friends, "Who will help me eat the bread ?"
"I will," barked the lazy dog .
"I will," purred the sleepy cat .
"I will," quacked the noisy yellow duck .

"No!" said the little red hen . "I will." And the little red hen ate the bread all by herself.




The Ant and the Grasshopper
In a field one summer's day a Grasshopper was hopping about, chirping and singing to its heart's content. An Ant passed by, bearing along with great toil an ear of corn he was taking to the nest.

"Why not come and chat with me," said the Grasshopper, "instead of toiling and moiling in that way?"

"I am helping to lay up food for the winter," said the Ant, "and recommend you to do the same."

"Why bother about winter?" said the Grasshopper; "We have got plenty of food at present." But the Ant went on its way and continued its toil.

When the winter came the Grasshopper had no food and found itself dying of hunger - while it saw the ants distributing every day corn and grain from the stores they had collected in the summer. Then the Grasshopper knew: It is best to prepare for days of need.

Antwan, Antwan....those stories need updating. This is modern times.....alas the new version of the Ant and the Grasshopper

The Ant and the Grasshopper (Modern 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 NAAGB (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."

Barry and Michelle Obama make a special guest appearance on the CBS Evening News to tell a concerned Katy 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, or as Barry refers to it, the "Temperatures of the 80's."

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 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.

Michelle gets an old friend at a law firm to represent the grasshopper in a defamation suit against the ant, and the case is tried before a panel of federal judges that Barry O appointed. 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 died, his body disappears in the snow. And on the TV, which the grasshopper bought by selling most of the ant's food, they are showing Obama standing before a wildly applauding group of Democrats announcing that a new era of "fairness" has dawned in America.

Funny timing of this topic. A children's show my daughter watches came on and it was about the ant and the grasshopper. In the show the grasshopper goofs around while the ant gathers food. When the winter comes the grasshopper realizes that he doesn't have any food and asks the ant for help. The ant reluctantly agrees but tells the grasshopper if there is any food left there would be little to find. The grasshopper doesn't find any food. But suddenly he finds some seeds and is able to grow "winter berries" and survive the winter learning his lesson.

I told my wife, "funny, the way I remember the story the grasshopper starved to death." I guess it's to cruel to show kids the horrible realities of their choices.

More liberal mind poison for the "good" of the children. Like not keeping score at a soccar game cuz the loser kids might not feel good about themselves.

I was at a nephews basketball game once & his team was ahead like 20 to 2 or something, & some uppity bitch next to me began complaigning loudly about how she'd never seen such a poor example of sportsmanship.

I wouldn't have said anything about it but, she kept going on & on about it, so I said "It's not our teams fault that your kid is a loser. Maybe this will be a lesson for him to practice a little more."

She got in a huff & asked her husband if he was going to let me talk to her like that, & lucky for me...... he was.

When I bought my house almost two years ago I kept having these horrible nightmares about the government taking my house and giving it to some welfare mommy who's never worked a day in her life but has 5 kids, and tossing me out, saying, well, you don't have any kids, and she does, so it's only fair that she has your house.

And in the 1st one, you left out that Monsanto sued the hen for using their GMO seeds w/o permission.

The EPA fined the hen for planting w/o the proper environmental studies & permits.

The NLRB investigated as to whether the hen had the properly diverse work applications.

The Dept of Ag fined the hen for not having the wheat & bread inspected.

PBO appointed the dog, cat & duck to the WH Rural Council as experts on "sustainability".

And finally, after the hen ate the bread, KFC made her into a "meal deal".

Another good story is the one of the Walruss and the Carpenter as told by Teedle Dee and Tweedle Dum off Alice in Wonderland.

The Walruss is a fat, lazy sod intent on doing as little as he has to in life. The Carpenter is a hard worker. They find some oysters and trick them into coming with them. The Carpenter builds the shack, bakes the loaf of bread and makes the sauce, all the while the Walruss is tucking into the oysters not giving a thought to his friend the Carpenter who actually discovered the oysters in the first place.

When the Carpenter discovers that his friend the Walruss has eaten all the oysters and left none for him, he takes to him with his hammer.

So, are you the Walruss, or the Carpenter.
