Politics explained by a kid...
SON: "Dad, I have to do a special report for school. Can I ask you a question?"
DAD: "Sure Son, what's the question?"
SON: "What is politics?"
DAD: "Well, let's take our home for an example. I am the wage earner, so lets call me "Capitalism". Your mother is the administrator of the money so we'll call her "Government". We take care of you and your needs, so let's call you "the people". We'll call the maid "the working class" and your baby brother "the future". Do you understand, Son?"
SON: "I'm not really sure, Dad. I'll have to think about it."
That night, awakened by his baby brother crying, the boy went to see what was wrong. Discovering that the baby had seriously soiled his diaper, the boy went to his parents' room and found his mother sound asleep. He then went to the maid's room and saw his father in bed with the maid. The boy's knocking went totally unheard by his father and the maid, so the boy returned to this room and went back to sleep. The next morning he reported to his father.
SON: "Dad, now I think I understand what politics is."
DAD: "Good, Son. Can you explain it to me in your own words?"
SON: "Well, while CAPITALISM is screwing the WORKING CLASS and the GOVERNMENT is sound asleep, the PEOPLE are being completely ignored and the FUTURE is full of shit."
