Yes It's True ... Obama Wants ALL the Candy

Updated on June 1, 2012

The Parable of the Candy

There once was a very Wicked Teacher who taught at "What Had Once Been The Very Best School" in all the land. One of the reasons it was the best school was because it always had more candy than any other school.This Once Very Best School, had at one time been much beloved, for they would share their candy with all the other schools.They would also let other unqualified kids from other schools become qualified kids at their school, which gave them access to all their candy.

But the Wicked Teacher did not like this. He thought the Once Very Best School was very bad because they had enjoyed too much candy for too long. He was certain that the Once Very Best School should share "all" of their candy with "all" the other schools. Only then could there be total "fairness" throughout the land.

One day, the Wicked Teacher realized that the only way he could take all the candy from the Once Very Best School was to continue the "fundamental transformation" he'd started at the school, so that they would be forced to share "all " their candy.Then and there the Wicked Teacher decided that this could only happen if "The Kids" of the Once Very Best School were to vote for him as their "Favorite Teacher" This would not be easy for so many of the kids already realized that he was a very "Wicked" Teacher. But the Wicked Teacher didn't care.

The Wicked Teacher knew that In order to be elected "Favorite Teacher, he'd have to convince the three most popular kids, KID #1, KID #2 and KID #3 to vote for him. For they could sway all the other kids. The Wicked Teacher knew they could all be manipulated with candy.

The Wicked Teacher called KID #1, KID #2, and KID #3.into his office. He announced that he would be giving out candy. But there was one problem. The Wicked Teacher was actually offering candy he'd already taken out of KID #1's locker. He gave half of that candy to KID #2 and kept the rest for himself. In the Wicked Teacher's mind this was perfectly okay, because he didn't much like KID #1 for he would probably vote for another teacher and didn't want to depend on the Wicked Teacher for candy. Besides, KID #1 had more candy than any other kid, and that was wrong.

KID #2 was now happier with the Wicked Teacher than he'd ever been. When KID #3 chimed in that he actually knew the wicked Teacher took KID #1's candy, the Wicked Teacher told KID #3 that if he ever wanted or needed any extra candy in the future, he'd be wise to get on KID #2s side.The Wicked Teacher told KID #3 that not supporting KID #2 would reflect badly on the entire school. He told KID #3 that if KID #1 had less candy he'd probably have more. KID #3 was torn because he and his family could sure have used more candy.

The Wicked Teacher then told KID #1 there was a new school rule which dictated that he must now share even more candy with KID #2 and that it would be even more fair if he started sharing some with KID #3 So KID #3 began to wonder that perhaps voting for the Wicked Teacher might not be a bad idea because "what could be the harm" of having "free candy". Why not ? After all, ever since the Wicked Teacher had been around, it was getting harder and harder to get ANY candy !! At least he cared.

But KID #1 had decided he wanted to start keeping more of his candy for his family. Why should he keep bringing in more candy when the Wicked Teacher would just take it . Such defiance angered the Wicked Teacher. He got on the school's intercom and denounced KID #1 as "not nice" and "selfish".

KID #1 was now convinced he would never vote for the Wicked Teacher. But the Wicked Teacher wasn't worried. He'd been giving "secret candy" to some of KID #1s disloyal friends. In exchange for the "secret candy", these so-called friends of KID #1 came out attacking KID #1 claiming that just like KID #1 they had lots of candy, but unlike KID #1 they desperately wished they'd be asked to give up more candy because they had too much.

While KID #1 was busy defending himself from "his friends", the Wicked Teacher had been providing "special candy" to some of KID #2s "special friends" . These "special friends" were very good at tampering with the balloting process in the Favorite Teacher elections. The Wicked Teacher was so pleased with KID #2s "special friends" he gave them the most candy of all. This "special candy" always "stimulated" the "special friends" to action.

Meanwhile KID #4 who wasn't a student at the Once Very Best School, but still liked to hang out there, decided he'd like a shot at some "free candy" because the little candy that might be available at his school wasn't very good candy at all. The Wicked Teacher told KID #4 that he believed he should have "free candy". The Wicked Teacher again got on the intercom of the Once Very Best School and told everyone that any unqualified kid from another school who walked into the Once Very Best School, should be considered a qualified student of the Once Very Best School. The Wicked Teacher then told KID #4 about KID #2s "special friends" and how they could help him vote in the election for Favorite Teacher, so he could get the "free candy" he deserved..

At another school very far away, KID #5 didn't like the whole "candy system". KID #5 was disgusted that the Once Very Best School would even be allowed to exist. In the past KID #5 had done everything he could to "weaken" the Once Very Best School. This endeared KID #5 to the Wicked Teacher. He rewarded KID #5 with some "off-budget candy", for which he seemed to be developing quite a taste.The wicked Teacher told KID #5 to just be patient and that soon the Once Very Best School wouldn't be as big a problem as they where right now. To show his good faith, the Wicked Teacher brought some of KID #5s "angry friends" to the Once Very Best School and claimed they were now "teacher's aides".

As the election for Favorite Teacher drew near, the Wicked Teacher was hoping that KID #1, KID #3,and whatever loyal friends they had left, did not join forces against him. He's hoped that KID #2, KID #4, KID #5 and their allies could successfully undermine the Favorite Teacher Balloting process

The Wicked Teacher was successful. He now controlled all the candy. His family and friends, KID #2s "special friends", and Kid #5 and all of his friends,now have easy access to all available candy. KID #2 and KID #4 get candy to, but not near as much as before the election. because without KID #3 who helped make sure there was candy for other kids, and KID #1 who made everyone's candy possible, the Wicked Teacher now has to ration the candy. Just where KID #1 and KID #3 have gone is unknown.Without KID #1 and KID #3 The Once Very Best School has come to be known as "The School That Will Never Ever Again Be Good For Anything" And they lived miserably ever after.

***** If you find this hub confusing try this little key.

KID #1 -- High Income Earners, Capitalists, Entrepreneurs

The Disloyal Friends With "Secret Candy" -- Crony Capitalists

KID #2 -- Permanent Entitlement Class,

"Special Friends" Some Unions, Govt Unions & Leftist Groups

KID #3 -- Middle Class (non Govt employee)

KID #4 -- Undocumented Citizens

KID #5 --- Any enemy of America (pick one)

"Angry Friends" Anti-American Advisers ((YES it's True))
