« What is Politics?
A little boy goes to his Dad and asks, "What is politics?"
Dad says, "Well son, let me try to explain it to you this way....I'm the
breadwinner of the family, so let's call me 'Capitalism'. Your Mom, she's
the administrator of the household, 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, well, she works hard all day for very little money, so we'll
consider her 'The Working Class'. And, your baby brother...we'll 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 his Dad had said.
Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he goets up to
check on him. He find that the baby has severely soiled his diaper...big
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 into 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 litle 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 poop!"
