I have received the same email from several of my friends recently. This morning I received it again, but something ‘CLICKED’ this time. I’m taking the liberty to retell the story from a political viewpoint. I hope you find it both humorous and inspirational.
The Black Labrador in the following photos represents our current Local, State, and Federal Governments. I’ll call him “Big Sam“(alias for Uncle Sam) for this tale. The 2 Squirrels represent the American people with the momma squirrel being the Conservatives (aka the TEA Party folks) and the baby squirrel being just that, the younger, naive generation. I’ll name the momma squirrel “Lady Liberty” and the baby squirrel “Dumbo“. Ok…here we go with our tale.
Dumbo is out doing their thing on any given day. It’s a pleasant day in America and Dumbo is carefree, happy as a lark, listening to his IPOD, drinking a Latte or an imported beer. Discussing what happened on American Idol the night before. Feeling sorry for poor ole Lindsey Lohan. Trusting the American Main Stream Media. He likes to watch CNN & MSNBC because his liberal teachers tell him that a FOX is EVIL and will destroy him! Dumbo is NOT paying attention to the possible dangers that lurk in the shadows from Big Sam. (Note that all of the pictures can be enlarged by clicking on them)
All of a sudden, Big Sam makes his move. Now, Dumbo’s life itself is threatened and little Dumbo doesn’t know how to handle this. Dumbo thinks that it’s OK to play nice with the evil Big Sam. Big Sam says we must be tolerant of Islam, that it is just fine to leave our borders open for any Tom, Dick or Harry to saunter on in. In the above pic, you’ll notice Big Sam has complete control of Dumbos surroundings…completely engulfed.
Now, Lady Liberty is watching, from the sidelines so to speak. She is ‘Deeply Concerned’ about this scenario which is playing out right before her eyes. “What must I do?” she ponders
She decides that she needs to show some resistance against Big Sam. So, she makes initial contact with Big Sam by calling her representatives, writing letters, sending emails etc. This doesn’t seem to phase Big Sam though. He continues his attack on Dumbo, and Dumbo still hasn’t realized that Big Sam is “A THREAT“. You’ll notice that if Dumbo was aware of the dangers, he would have run away already. But NO, Dumbo STILL thinks things are fine.
Big Sam is now beginning to get irritated with Lady Liberty and starts to growl, snarl and bite back. Lady Liberty is messing with Big Sam’s agenda. Notice Dumbo is STILL hanging around. He has not fled the scene yet. He still thinks that Big Sam is alright and is not going to hurt him. Lady Liberty though, is in the fight of her life. She has the wisdom and the courage to stand up and fight. And from the look on Big Sam’s face, he realizes that he just might have “Bitten off more than he can Chew”
There is a happy ending though…..
Lady Liberty and Dumbo will be alright. They have escaped the Tyrant Big Sam. Even though Big Sam was a lot bigger and stronger, Lady Liberty emerges with her life and Freedoms. Yes, she’s scratched up and bruised a little, but she and Dumbo will prevail.
Dumbo will receive a stern reprimand though because of his complacency and stupidity. And as Dumbo grows a little older, he will remember this day and the lesson learned.
The last picture here ALSO represents the looks on the faces of the DemocRATS on the morning of November 3, 2010 when they wake up, and they realize that they just got their asses kicked by a bunch of TEA Party Conservatives.
Morale to the Story: Even when things seems down and out, AND you’re facing a EVIL opponent….fighting for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness will always prevail!
