The Parable of Zeus vs Odin: AKA, The Tea Party Protesters vs Obama

Now I hope most people know the deal with the Democrats’ tax policy. To simplify it to the point of it being dangerously inaccurate, Democrat will tax the hell out of you if you make more than 200,000 a year. Now that sounds unfair, right? Why is the Democrat party punishing the rich? Is it a sin for a hard working American to succeed? Isn’t Capitalism supposed to reward those that are up top?

First, you have to ask yourself this: As an average American, unless you are driving for one, how often do meet someone who makes more than 200,000 a year? Think about that before you answer. If you go to a party and you meet someone who told you he made $5,000 a month, your have to ask… dude, what do you do for a living? The national median total salary for a single American household is 3,600 a month. Hell, a lot of people I know make 1,500. Do you know how much do you have to make per month to make 200,000 a year? 16,666 dollars a month! At least. What occupation gives you that kind of salary?

If I make more than 16,000 a month, and I vote Democrat (which, I probably would), people would then have the right to call me an idiot. “Hey Panasit, Obama is turning your 16,000 monthly salary and turned it into 8,000! And you are still going to reelect him? Are you insane? Do you have a crush on the guy? Do you want to suck his dick?”

Well, that’s a story for another post. The point of this post is, what is going on with the tea party protesters is unnatural. It goes against the cycle! The cycle that makes American Democracy work! What is the cycle? Well let me explain.

THE CYCLE OF POLITICAL LIFE:
The Republican and Democrat cycle should go like this. At least in my humble opinion. when the country is filled with poor people and there are few wealthy people flaunting their money around (kind of like now), it’s natural for the poors to elect the party that is good to them, the Democrat. Then the Democrat will tax the rich and be kind to the poor until there is a healthy chunk of middle class American. These middle class people suddenly has amnesia and forgot what it was like to be poor 4 years ago. So now they are looking at Democrat plans and go “why do I have to pay for some immigrant kids’ free lunches?”. So them and their selfish cold patriotic heart rightfully vote for Republican congressmen and presidents. And when Republican cut tax, ease bank regulation, and start a war; the cycle starts over.

But do you know that the Tea Party protesters are going against the cycle? It’s because the Tea Party protesting FOR the rich. These are poor people, fighting for the right of the rich. I think the biggest tragedy is that they don’t even realize it. There is no way the tea party protesters can make 16,000 a month. They don’t even look like they know how to spell ‘cantaloupe’. So Obama tax is not effecting them (kind of like how Bush tax cut didn’t really effect them,lol). But they think that it does. And nobody is correcting them. Not even the Democrat.

THE PARABLE OF ZEUS vs ODIN:Let’s pretend that America is a jungle and think of rich people as lions, and poor people as deers. Obviously there has to be more deers than there are lions. With less deers, lions would be starving very soon. It’s a simple concept but if a tea party protester is reading this… well, take your time, nobody is perfect.

Then suddenly, two gods come down. Zeus and Odin. They are really same person, but let say they are different. They are running for election, and the animals have to pick one.

Zeus policy favors the deer: Zeus is telling the lions that they are allow to kill and eat only the sickly deer, the dying deer, the old weak and useless deer. And they can’t hunt every day.

Odin policy favors the lion: Odin says that it is the lion’s right to eat whatever deer they want to. They should be able to eat the strong deer, the fat deer, and especially fawns. And they should hunt as often as they want. Why not? They are the king of the jungle.

The tea party protesters, and why they are so unnatural, is because I see them as this. They are a group of deers who turn to Zeus and said the following: “Zeus, how can you be so unfair to the lion. I’m going to vote for Odin!”
