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 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. Now 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 has said. Later that night he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him, and he finds the baby has severely soiled his diaper. So the little boy goes to his parents'room and finds his mother fast 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 to bed. The next morning, the little boy says to his father, "I think I understand Politics now". The father replies, "Good son, tell me in your own words what you think it is".The boy promptly answers, "Well, while Capitalism is screwing the working class, the Government is asleep, the people are being ignored, and the future is in deep trouble." Have a nice day!!
