    Subject: Psychology

    You start with a cage containing four monkeys, and
    inside the cage you hang a banana on a string, 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.

    You then spray ALL the monkeys with cold water.
    After a while, another monkey makes an attempt. As
    soon as he touches the stairs, you spray ALL the
    monkeys with cold water.

    Pretty soon, when another monkey tries to climb the
    stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it.

    Now, put away the cold water. Remove one monkey
    from the cage and replace it with a new monkey. 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 four monkeys,
    replacing it with a new monkey. 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
    monkey, followed by the fourth. 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. 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 is how today's House and Senate operates, and
    this Is why from time to time, ALL of the monkeys
    need to be REPLACED AT THE SAME TIME!

    At first I thought the Monkey's would be equated to Liberals (which still works).

    Although I agree with replacing them we could also just spray them will freezing water every time they do something stupid. We should also scold them "bad monkey's bad".

    I wonder if this is just a fable, or if someone has really tried this.

    i read about that story about 6 or 8 years ago. it seems about right honestly.

    today my boss said a liberal is a guy that would hit himself in the hand with a hammer while driving a nail and instantly call for regulations on all hammers. it's so close to true it isnt even funny.

    True or not, our so called civil servants in Congress do act like monkeys and replacing them all at one time would be a good thing. Cakes has the right idea.
