The Ant And The Grasshopper--Modern Version

The Ant and the Grasshopper fable worked well in times past when people were encouraged to succeed.  Alas, the world has drastically changed, especially America since this story was first published, which renders the moral of the original yarn obsolete. Since the story is still being read today, an update is required and has been implemented to more accurately reflect the times. We thank Rev. Ed Berkey (Ret.) for sending this to MilesTones:

This one is a little different....
Two Different Versions....Two Different Morals....


The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away. Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed. The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be responsible for yourself!

The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away. Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving.

The Obamacon: Taxes, Lies, and Treachery

When Nancy Pelosi was asked whether or not she thought it was fair for people to face incarceration for not participating in Obamacare, she replied, " Well the point is, we want.....blah blah blah" Why can't this administration ever say "YES" or "NO"? They truly reckon that we are idiot's, you know, maybe we are. American's overwhelmingly reject government run healthcare, but the democrats are forging ahead, buying off the dissenters. This whole political system is a sham, it's a mockery of the nation we once knew. We are virtually paralyzed, will this country survive the Obama con?

The Obama propaganda machine that surfaces like greasy grimy pollution in an otherwise beautiful pond, monopolize every cable channel, they can hardly keep a straight face defending their liar, I mean leader. They resemble rats, doing the bidding of their pied piper. The democrat party has produced quite an abundance of dirtbags, like Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu, whose integrity was bought for a cool hundred million(some say 300 million), she figures her constituents can be bought as well if she spreads part of the wealth around. The problem is, it's not only the citizens of Louisiana that will be flipping the bill, it will be all of us.

The Enemy Within Part 2

As our fearless leader appeases his way through the Orient, the families of the victims at Fort Hood are left picking up the pieces of their broken lives. The massacre hardly made a blip on Obama's radar, his administration is trying desperately to portray this as your garden variety slaughter, but for those of us with a brain, this attack is not so insignificant, no it's enormous. This was a terror attack that probably could have been avoided, if not for our societies ingestion and acceptance of political correctness, the proper steps would have been taken long ago to imprison this slug.

The military is consumed by PC fear, liberals have been quite successful in their campaign for loathsome white guilt. They've created an atmosphere of tolerance for the intolerable. This sworn Islamic soldier penetrated our military, and with their careers in the balance, our guardians looked away, and for that 13 hero's are dead.

Liberalism infects everything it comes in contact with. The liberal elites, like President Obama, Harry Reid, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Nancy Pelosi and others take pleasure in controlling their naive left wing minions. The elite's pander to this peace, love, and happiness crowd, making slaves of millions. They don't believe in any of it. These are progressives in liberal clothing, sure they believe in abortion, not because it's a women right, but because it controls the population and supports selective breeding, weeding out the less desirable.

Obama Photo Tells The Story

This photo forwarded to me by Rev. Richard Lee of Washington State, was taken during ceremonies at Ft. Hood and at Dover. Notice everyone on stage honors the flag with a salute or a hand over the heart, except Obama. He does neither, showing his utter contempt for America.

Maybe he thought they were saluting him?

It's the Teleprompter's fault no doubt.

MilesTones Looks at Friday the 13th

Stay behind the curtain. It is Friday the 13th, the day in history (1789) when Benjamin Franklin wrote to a friend: "In this world nothing can be said to be certain except death and taxes." Whatever you today, do NOT walk under a black cat.

Susan Boyle, the frumpy church woman who stunned the world with her singing, has officially arrived. She has a stalker and now has police protection. A real sign of the times is that.... the stalker is a....woman!

This week we have been celebrating the fall of the Berlin Wall while the ACLU is trying to put a wall around us...in Ireland, Grand National Award winning jockey, Paul Cranberry, was banned from jokeying for 30 days for riding a racing horse while drunk. It's the second time....he's Irish for corn sakes!

In Germany (According to the German paper,The Local) a Mexican, a Texan and an Australian put their enchildas together to open Germany's first 'Authentic Mexican Food Restaurant.'....a tip of the Sombrero to that.

Obama sitting in the Oval Office, who stated that we "should not jump to conclusions" after a committed Muslim was shot with his gun in his hand after he had killed 14 military personnel and wounding 35 others (how's that again?), just signed a bill to open our borders to HIV carriers and to welcome foreigners with AIDS into our country...but he won't let that Irishman in.

AARP Sued for Deception

AARP Sued for Deception

The AARP, the American Association of Retired Persons, has flip-flopped, misrepresented themselves, and, let's call it accurately, lied.  They claim to be an advocate for senior citizens, the retired and elderly, watching out for their interests, when in reality their only interest is in helping the Marxists take over America.

The membership dues they take from thousands upon thousands of seniors plus the kickbacks they receive from recommending insurance companies and medications keeps them in the Billion dollar range, which is used to further the far left agenda of socialism.

They have stated publicly that they do NOT back Obama's Health Care Plan (this is all on video tape) even though they were behind the scenes giving the Obama Administration all the support and finances they needed. Then recenlty they acknowledged (just before the vote), that yes, THEY BACKED the healthkill plan, a plan where health care will be rationed to the elderly. (See stories of AARP on this website and by going to: www.revaustinmiles.com)

Then, today, The National Law Journal Legal Times published the story below of a couple suing AARP for deception and misrepresentation, revealing even more AARP corruption.....selling medical plans!

Couple Sues AARP Over Health Care Marketing

Health Care Passage Ushers in New U.S.S.A.

Within the hour of this posting, The House of Representatives narrowly voted in Obama and Nancy Pelosi's Socialist Health Care Reform Bill. A bill was passed earlier prohibiting health care funds to pay for abortions. After tonight's victory for liberals, the democrats (crowing on TV) made it clear that they will not commit to that passage and will overturn it as the bill moves further on.

They made it clear in the beginning that their plan will indeed pay for abortions, not matter what the people say or how they vote. It was also established during tonight's reports that the public will be forced to buy the government health insurance or face fines and possible jail time.

In other words, the people have no voice whatsoever in the government of the new, United Socialist States of America The healthcare passage has now officially placed our country under Marxist rule.

As communists stated to this writer (behind the Iron Curtain) in the early 1980's, they will overthrow the government of the United States without firing a shot. It took place tonight. It had all been planned carefully from the first Socialist organizational meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1900.

They managed to maneuver into the White House, a Muslim who was not born in the United States, one Barack Hussein Obama who they began grooming years ago, put him through Harvard and then, with the help of ACORN and a misinformed public, shoe-horned this pretender into The Oval Office.  

While Muslim Plans Murders in Ft. Hood, Obama Prays in Mosque

Obama refused to [even] address (by video) the National Day of Prayer At The Pole when thousands of Christians came to The Capitol. The president rudely snubbed them. However, he DID take part in the celebration of Ramadam, the Muslim holiday, greeted Muslims who came to D.C. and invited a Muslim committee to The White House where he took part in the end of Ramadam meal with them.  He has shown the nation that for him, Christianity is out, Islam is in. Is he or isn't he?  Here is he answer.   

This photo was just forwarded to me by Rev. Richard Lee of Washington State. The obviously untouched photo of Obama removing his shoes before Muslim prayer in a Mosque shows that America might have elected a Muslim as President whose birthplace is in question.  

The Constitution clearly states that a candidate for President must be a natural born United States Citizen, swears to uphold the Constitution, and to protect our citizens from terrorists.  Obama and his handlers have refused to provide his actual birth certificate and he certainly has not upheld the Constitution nor has he protected America from her enemies. Indeed, he has comforted those who would destroy our nation and is in the process of selling us out to the enemies of America.

Victims of Liberalism

President Obama has signed a hate crime bill, while simultaneously making America a more vulnerable nation. The new hate crime bill "piggy backed" on legislation that further weakened our sovereignty by killing plans for new weapons and war spending. America, pay attention this bill is a microcosm of liberal planning, President Obama rides on the Luxury that previous Presidents afforded him, by building the most powerful nation on Earth. The next US leader will be left to pick up the unpopular pieces of securing this nation.
The new measure expands currant hate crime laws by including violence based on gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability. AP reports the defense part of the bill that wasn't cut, was a "must pass"; so republicans who realized that this legislation was an attack on free speech caved in to typical Washington politics, in order to get the defense dollars. **Hope and Change**
There is always a reason why a crime is committed, jealousy, greed, psychotic tendencies, hate, none of them are valid and all of them should be punishable by the appropriate measure. Our far left President and his ilk believe that victims of a crime are more important if they subscribe to a liberal lifestyle. If I get assaulted for my belief in Jesus Christ and his teachings it is now a lesser crime than a man who gets assaulted for believing he should have sex with other men.

AARP Pants On Fire-Again! How They Profit on Healthkill Plan

AARP, the ultra-liberal senior citizen's organization denied backing Obama's Healthkill Plan at televised Town Hall meetings. See my story on this website regarding their lies. Turns out there is even MORE to this story of betrayal.  

According to press reports, and a story in The Washington Post written by reform advocate and insurance salesman, Dan Eggen. the nation's preeminent seniors group, AARP, has put the weight of its 40 million members behind health-care reform (remember they have publicly stated that they absolutely did NOT back the plan) saying many of the proposals will lower costs and increase the quality of care for older Americans. Again, this group is now solidly endorsing the plan they have publicly denied backing. 

But NOT disclosed in this lobbying campaign is the group's substantial earnings from insurance royalties and the potential benefits that could come its way from many of the reform proposals. The group and it's subsidiaries collected more than $650 million in royalties and other fees last year from the sale of insurance policies, credit cards and other products that carry the AARP name (vitamins etc.), accounting for the majority of it's $1.14 billion in revenue, according to federal tax records.

It does not directly sell insurance policies-even though they strongly "recommend" them through their newsletters and AARP Magazine, lending its name to insurance plans in exchange for a tax-exempt cut of the premiums.
