  • Politics in a Nutshell

    A little boy goes to his dad and asks: What is Politics? Dad says, Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I am the head of the family, so call me The President. Your mother is the administrator of the money, so we call her the Government. We are here to take care of your needs, so we will call you the People. The nanny, we will consider her the Working Class. And your baby brother, we will call him the Future.

    Now think about that and see if it makes sense. So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what Dad has said. Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper. So the little boy goes to his parent's room and finds his mother sound asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny's room.

  • Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed. The next morning, the little boy says to his father, Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now. The father says, Good, son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about. The little boy replies, The President is screwing the Working Class while the Government is sound asleep. The People are being ignored and the Future is in deep sh-t.


    LOL :o)

  • Typos, you have to love 'em!! Which politics are you asking about? The system of government our country practices will take longer that 900 or so characters. In a nutshell, it is the give/take/manipulation/promises/under-the-table antics of people who think they have an idea of how to achieve what they see as the perfect version of the USA. (or just your local community) Some of it is unseemly and some of it is admirable.

  • I looked at your link and I think it's a little bit too simplistic...but if you were going for the most base generalization then sure I suppose it would work...

    It's a biased extremist site; but that's your call too...
