The Ant and The Grasshopper - a must read!

Came across this from one of the blogs which I would like to re-produce as follows.

An ant worked hard in the sweltering heat all summer, building its nest and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thought the ant was stupid not knowing how to enjoy life. It spent its days laughing, singing & dancing thoroughly enjoying the summer.

Winter came, the shivering grasshopper called a press conference and demanded to know why the ant should be warm and well fed while he was cold and starving. (This sounds just like Ibrahim Ali, Mahathir Mohammed and gang!)

TV1, TV2 & TV3 showed up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper alongside to a video clip of the ant in his comfortable home with a table full of food.
The majority of the Malaysian Parliamentarians were stunned by the sharp contrast. How could this poor grasshopper be allowed to suffer?

Khairy staged a demonstration in front of the ant’s nest.
Nazri went on a hunger strike along with other grasshoppers demanding that they be relocated to warmer climate area during winter.
The Malaysia Government immediately passed a law forbidding all ants from working hard in the summer so as to bring about equality of poverty between ants and grasshoppers.
Hishammudin increased ‘More Special Reservations’ for the grasshoppers in Educational Institutions & in Government Services..

The ants were fined for failing to share 30% of his food with the grasshoppers. The Prime Minister announced that this was part of the NEP. No ants should question it.

Years later…..

Some ants migrated to the US and set up multi-billion dollar companies there.
Hundreds of grasshoppers still died of starvation despite the ‘More Special Reservations’ .

Losing a significant number of hard working ants and free loading the grasshoppers, Malaysia remained a developing country, despite its abundant natural resources.
All because the remaining ANTS were still doing their work ………… ……… ……..

Latest findings showed that almost all the grasshoppers in the political arena and civil service were hoarding corrupt wealth which they refused to share with their fellow grasshoppers!’
