Small February Freebie ~ Inspired by Obama’s “Budget”
I sometimes don’t have the words to express how disgusted I am by “Hide the Peanut” Politics, but this ancient, Native American Proverb comes close, so I made it into a little sampler!

PS It appears that for one stitcher, a little explanation may be in order. Hide the Peanut Politics refers to political pork and earmarks. The frog doesn’t drink up the pond he lives in, but our politicians do. This happens in both political parties and among the thousands of political coat-tailers and lobbyists. Think of America as your pond, and you may get a teensy bit irritated by all the freeloaders siphoning off our water, ie tax money. You don’t have to be involved in politics to recognize rampant greed, or political payoffs.
The story of the frog in the pot of water also resonates here. The frog didn’t realize he was going to be boiled alive because the water was heated gradually. Our pond has been gradually drained by unsustainable spending, and it’s all but dry. Either way, the frog/America dies.
