"What is politics?"
« on: January 16, 2007, 11:18:21 AM »
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'm the breadwinner of
the family, so let's call me capitalism. Your Mom, she's the administrator of
the money, so we'll call her the Government. We're here to take care of your
needs, so we'll call you the people. The nanny, we'll consider her the Working
Class. And your baby brother, we'll call him the Future. Now, think about that
and see if that makes sense,"

So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what dad had 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 parents' 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, "Well, while Capitalism is screwing the Working Class, the
Government is sound asleep, the People are being ignored and the Future is in
deep poo."
