A friend sent me a E-mail talking about term limits and how congress is garbage. I agree with him whole heartedly this morning he sent me this so I
thought I would share.
> If you start with a cage containing five monkeys and inside the
> cage, hang a banana on a string from the top and then you place a
> set of stairs under the banana, before long a monkey will go to the
> stairs and climb toward the banana.
> As soon as he touches the stairs, you spray all the other monkeys
> with cold water.
> After a while another monkey makes an attempt with same result
> ... all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon
> when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys
> will try to prevent it.
> Now, put the cold water away.
> Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one.
> The new monkey sees the banana and attempts to climb the
> stairs. To his shock, all of the other monkeys beat the crap out of him.
> After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the
> stairs he will be assaulted.
> Next, remove another of the original five monkeys, replacing it
> with a new one.
> The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous
> newcomer takes part in the punishment...... with enthusiasm, because
> he is now part of the "team".
> Then, replace a third original monkey with a new one, followed by
> the fourth, then the fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes to the
> stairs, he is attacked.
> Now, the monkeys that are beating him up have no idea why they
> were not permitted to climb the stairs. Neither do they know why they
> are participating in the beating of the newest monkey.
> Finally, having replaced all of the original monkeys, none of the
> remaining monkeys will have ever been sprayed with cold water.
> Nevertheless, not one of the monkeys will try to climb the stairway for
> the banana.
> Why, you ask? Because in their minds...that is the way it has
> always been!
> This, my friends, is how Congress operates... and this is why,
> from time to time:
> ALL of the monkeys need to be REPLACED AT THE SAME TIME.
