WET MONKEY THEORY

"WET MONKEY THEORY"

DO NOT BE A VICTIM



Start with a cage containing five monkeys.



Inside the cage, hang a banana on a string and place a set of stairs under

it. Before long, a monkey will go to the stairs and start to climb towards

the banana. As soon as he touches the stairs, spray all the other monkeys

with cold water.



After a while another monkey makes the 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 wants to climb the

stairs. To his surprise and horror, all of the other monkeys attack 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 and replace it with a new

one. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer

takes part in the punishment with enthusiasm.



Likewise, replace a third original monkey with a new one, then a fourth,

then the fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes to the stairs he is

attacked.



Most of the monkeys that are beating him have no idea why they were not

permitted to climb the stairs or why they are participating in the beating

of the newest monkey.



After replacing all of the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys

have ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, no monkey ever again

approaches the stairs to try for the banana. Why not? Because as far as they

know that is the way it has always been done around here.



And that, my fellow monkey, is how ignorant laws and policy
begins.........

  • So, is Obama the wet monkey, or is he the one reaching for the banana?

  • And so, this is why mainstream media, or most of the public, don't question Obama.

  • that's funny,but wrong,they are ignorant laws and policies to us,but they are promoted by someone with money for their benefit,if 'we the people' take back our government and stop referring to it as 'the government' this will cease,'the government' is supposed to be 'we the people' , it is not the job of politicians to sit in d.c. and write laws we know nothing about,they should only be meeting there once or twice per year to vote on laws/bills sent to them by the states that were not able to be More..

    • @Inkler Actually, yes. This is a military dictatorship, so I'm told. Does this support that claim?
