Will Father Rooster get up in time to wake up the farm? Will Missy Hen quit flirting with all the young roosters long enough to graduate? Did Junior take off his football helmet before he went to bed?
Unlike most chickens, though, Mother Hen worries about the state of the world too.
Is climate change going to fry all the world’s chickens? Will the uncertainty of the global economy destroy Mother Hen’s nest egg? Will Republicans and Democrats quit playing “chicken” with the financial future of the United States?
If everyone simply listened to Mother Hen, this would be a better world.
“Oh, really?” you say, only because you are not yet fully acquainted with the depth and power of MH’s years of accumulated wisdom.
Father Rooster needs to set his clock radio that Mother H. generously got him for his Hatching Day present.
Missy Hen should wear her glasses so she can use her eyes for something other than eyelash-batting.
Junior Rooster, let’s face it, needs to learn self-defense before he can ever dream of playing defense.
Now, the politicians would like to have you believe that saving the world is much, much harder than running a family coop. Poppycock!!!!
Mother Hen humbly contributes the following brilliant insights.
Build around trees, not over them. Fine for every viable tree cut down.
Give tax breaks to companies, small businesses and homes that use green energy to go off the grid, as well as companies that help everyone to produce clean energy.
Reduce insurance rates for people who regularly use public transportation.
Cut business taxes proportionally to number of new full-time hires.
Cut sales taxes on domestically produced merchandise.
Re-direct the military toward more peacekeeping and disaster assistance. Acts of aggression, towards any country or one’s own citizens, is to be met with pre-established UN protocols and discipline, including suspension of participation in international organizations.
Suspend or reduce salaries of congress and senate first if US government funding is cut off, with salary and bonuses tied to domestic prosperity indexes.
Personal taxes should be geared to income. If you have money and property, you contribute. If you don’t, you get a break. There are enough natural incentives to pursue financial success without penalizing the poor for being poor and rewarding the rich further for being rich. This is not communism, folks, for Pete’s sake! This is The Golden Rule. Mother Hen has spoken!
So, there are just a few kernels of wisdom from Mother Hen’s plentiful silo.
It is high time more politicians put MH on speed dial.
