Quote# 81531

Recently I found an old childhood book at a thrift store. I remember loving it and was excited to buy it for my kiddos. Are you all familiar with the children's book, "The Little Red Hen"(by Paul Galdone). If not, I highly recommend it. Our children just love it, and of course we read with animated voices. It is about a hen, who does all the work and her friends the mouse, the dog and the cat are lazy and will not help her when hen asks. Then when hen has gotten the field ready, planted the wheat, took care of the wheat and milled the wheat she bakes a cake. Then her friends decide to get up, because they smell the cake and want some too. The hen says she did all the work so she will eat all the cake! I love this book and remember it as a child. The story really allows you to share with your children, what the Bible says about slothfulness. Don't you think I should send a copy to Barack Obama and his followers? HA!!!!!!! It may do this country some good!!!

Meh. Not fundie, religious, far-right, or even mentally disturbed. Not even slightly.

What, all his followers? That's a lot of books, lady. Maybe we could send you copies of Chicken Little, in the hope you might stop expecting the sky to fall on your head every day.

Really? Didn't you understand that the dog and the cat represent the bourgeois and the church respectively, trying to take the bread from the working class?

Why do you think it's called the Little *RED* Hen, huh?

I'm a "follower" of Obama, though I wish he'd been more liberal and tougher with the wingnuts. I've also worked for my living for 25 years. My Democrat-voting parents worked until retirement age and beyond.

I'd bet my nex hard-earned paycheck that Jessica is drawing some government benefit because she's "entitled."

Well, this Obama follower works at a cereal factory. I'll be over soon to check your pantry to see if any of our products are in it. After all, I did all the work to make them, so I guess I get to be the one to eat them, right? I'll bring over all my coworkers to help, since they too worked hard to make sure your brood has something to stuff their faces with before you homeschool them into societal uselessness. I don't discuss politics, but I'm sure there's an Obama follower or two amongst them.

btw-on her family's profile, she notes that her 4 and 5 year old sons love guns. Someone please rescue those kids before it's too late!

Except in real life, that cake is actually hundreds of millions of dollars. And the hen didn't make it, it was made by less fortunate people whom the hen pays extremely little, because the hen is a greedy corporate fuck.

Get your rightwing head out of your ass.

So what you are saying is that the red hen asked the rest of the group to work as a social group, for the benefit of the whole. When they refused, their liberty to not work for the group caused them to not have any cake.

Sounds like a socialist lesson to me, not a conservative one.

I seem to remember that Jeebus rebuked Martha for complaining that Mary M was spending her time pampering said Jeebus while Martha was working her tits off getting lunch ready, cleaning up etc.

Typical man

THe little red hen and the bible both have something in common, theyre both fairy tales. Im sure that escapes your brain.

5/27/2011 5:07:16 AM


oh my. she hasnt read the original un edited version by the brothers grimm before they redid their storys for kids then has she?

in the ORIGINAL story the hen didnt share some corn she found with her husband the rooster so she choked and DIED. and then while the rooster and all her freinds the cat dog mouse etc where takeing her to be buried all her little freinds died on the way there untill the rooster is left all alone with the hens corpse. and then you know what happens? he fucking died too. no joke.

i bet if she read the ORIGINAL story she would never look at her stupid kiddie version the same way again. perhaps in her case thats for the best though.

5/27/2011 5:13:34 AM


Uh, dude, Jesus and his followers were all about SHARING, regardless of who did what amount of work.

5/27/2011 5:16:27 AM


Hens that sow crops, mill the flour and bake cakes? That would really save the American economy!

5/27/2011 5:19:45 AM

Mister Spak

So in this story the hen is the middle class and the cat and dog are billionaires and big business.

Damn. Looks like someone hasn't read the parable of the Prodigal Son.

In other words, you want to teach your kids that it's wrong to help others.

Let this quote act as a warning to all fundies. You too will probably end up equating harmless children's story books with your racist tendencies, your right wing extremism and your slavish reliance on The Black Book of High Necromancy aka The Coming of The Sorcerer. So your best bet is to forswear your fundyism and convert to human normal.

Doubting Thomas

I was with you until you mentioned President Obama. Well, actually until you mentioned the bible.

So, what, killing Osama Bin Laden wasn't good enough for you? Yes, Obama's still sluggish in bringing the economy about, but I don't think he's just sitting on his ass doing nothing.

5/27/2011 6:13:46 AM


Obama is one lazy son of a bitch. I mean, just look at his career:

-Columbia University graduate
-President of The Harvard Law Review
-Harvard graduate
-Constitutional law professor
-United States Senator
-United States President

Now compare that to Jessica:
-Misinterpreting a children's story about hard work as an anti-Socialist polemic
-Being a Duggar wannabe and having like 80 kids

I mean it's clear who's doing more with his/her life here.

Your beloved George Bush took 1,019 days of vacation in his eight years as President, more than any other President in history, often staying away as long as a month, and boasted about being in bed every night at 9 PM.

Obama, on the other hand, rarely takes vacation, and when he does, it's short. He also burns the midnight oil, cleaning up the Republicans' mess.

You were saying?

Also while we're on the topic of money for nothing, a quick visit to the IRS' web site reveals that this family can, in all likelihood, claim about $5000 in tax credits for their brood. Possibly more than that if they qualify for the Additional Child Tax Credit. Praise the Lord!

Well, don't ya all know that all black folks is lazy and just waitin' fo some fixins from the big house?

It's part of the Right Wing mantra. They just don't admit it openly. But from time to time, it shows through.
