from American Thinker:
One brutally cold winter, a snake knocked on the door of a house occupied by a little mouse. The mouse yelled out, “Who is it?” and the snake answered, “It’s me, the snake. Can I come in? It’s freezing out here.”
The mouse asserted, “No you can’t come in. Snakes eat mice. If I let you in, you’ll eat me.”
The snake insisted, “I promise that I won’t eat you. I’m just cold and want to come in for the night.”
The two went back and forth many times before the mouse finally relented. The snake came into the house and immediately ate the mouse.
The moral of the story: You can’t change a being’s essential nature. So be very, very careful before you let someone into your house or into your heart.
Because there are bad people who wish us harm, Americans need to be careful and attentive. Of course, these politically correct times have crippled too many citizens in Self Protection 101.
Wasn’t it obvious that Obama presented a clear and present danger? The creepy friends, the thug-like atmosphere, the blank history. All people had to do was take off the rose-colored glasses.
But voters chose the Hollywood fantasy of some illusory hope and change. And now it appears that we have a chameleon, a wolf, and, yes, a snake living in the White House.
The wicked go astray from the womb;
they err from their birth, speaking lies.
They have venom like the venom of a serpent,
like the deaf adder that stops its ear,
so that it does not hear the voice of the charmers
or of the cunning enchanter.
