What is politics?

Here is something from my Inbox. This is funny and relevant.

A son asked his father “Dad, what is politics?

Dad said: Look, I bring the money home, therefore I am the Capitalist.
Your mother administrates the money, therefore she is the Government.
Grandpa watches everything, therefore he is the Union.
Then Dad said Our maid is the Working Class.

We all want just one thing, your well-being. Therefore you are the People.
And your smaller brother who is still in his nappy, is the Future.

Did you understand that my son?

The little one thinks, and tells his father he wanted to sleep it over for one night.

During the night the boy wakes up, because his younger brother produces something with an unbearable smell from his nappy and is crying.

As he does not know what to do, he goes into the bedroom of his parents.

But there is only his mother in her bed, and she is so fast asleep that he does not succeed in waking her up.

So he goes into the bedroom of the maid where he finds his father having fun with her, and grandpa watching them secretly through the window !!!!

All of them are so engaged that they don‘t realize that the boy is standing in front of them.

So the boy decides to go to bed again without having been able to solve the problem.

Next morning the father asks his son if he is able to explain with a few words what politics is.

Yes” answers the son.

The Capitalist abuses the Working Class,
The Union watches without doing anything,
While the Government sleeps,
The People are completely ignored,
And the Future is in the shit.

    Funny you blogged about this but this morning the train I rode had no heating and some of the doors were’nt functioning. The train master announced that there is only one engineer on board so they did not fire the 2nd engine… huh ? 😦 Then I remember one time in summer these guys didn’t show up for work because they refused to work overtime so the Friday PM rush hours was jeopardized… nuff said with unions 😦

    A good article to read is Albert Einstein’s short essay called WHY SOCIALISM 🙂 It talks about the pitfalls of capitalism 🙂
