USA Presidential Election 2016: Race for the White House

In much the same spirit as the "Thriller," "California Living," and "XML Web" pages of this website, this page represents another dramatization. This page is intended to serve as political humor and commentary. It is meant to dramatize and poke fun at the 2016 USA Presidential election. This page is based on the fairy tale titled The Three Little Pigs. The two introductory videos below and the nine concluding videos below are meant as commentary on the future of life on Earth.

Did you know that the Holy Bible contains a parable that is comparable to the story about the three little pigs? The parable was told by Jesus Christ, and it was Jesus Christ's story about three servants. The parable goes like this:

        And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.
        Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.
        And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.
        But he had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s money.
        After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.
        And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold I have gained beside them five talents more.
        His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of the lord.
        He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold I have gained two other talents beside them.
        His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of the lord.
        Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:
        And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.
        His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:
        Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.
        Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.
        For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance; but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.
        And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth

Excerpted from the Holy Bible (King James Version), Matthew: Chapter 25: Verses 15–30 

So, there you have it. The story about the three little pigs, it seems, is a variation of the parable about the three servants as told by Jesus Christ over 2,000 years ago. What, then, is the moral of the story? One moral of the story this: Good fortune in life comes through devotion, education, hard work, and planning.

On a related note, did you also that Aesop's fables pre-date the Holy Bible? According to Wikipedia.com, Aesop (born 620 B.C. and died 564 B.C.) was a Greek storyteller. Pivoting from The Three Little Pigs, as it relates to the 2016 USA Presidential election, I find Aesop's fable titled The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing also to be pertinent and applicable.

Watch (The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing)

Although some dispute the assertion that the fable about the wolf in sheep's clothing originated with Aesop or that the fable originated before the birth of Jesus christ, did you know that the story about the wolf in sheep's clothing also appears in the Holy Bible? Chapter 7, Verse 15 (King James Version) of the Holy Bible's book of Matthew contains the following passage as spoken by Jesus Christ over 2,000 years ago:

        Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

To be sure, the story about the three little pigs with houses built of straw, wood, and brick is eerily similar to Chapter 7 of the Book of Matthew. In making a point about believers and non-believers, Chapter 7 concludes with Jesus Christ describing a house built on rock versus a house built on sand.

REACHING FOR HEAVEN: FUTURE RUMINATIONS

Moving beyond the 2016 USA Presidential election and peering deeply into the future, to paraphrase a famous quote, "If you reach for the moon, then you just might end up landing among the stars." Similarly, as humans begin making preparations for 22nd century living, if they keep dreaming and if they keep aiming high enough, then they just might succeed in transforming Earth into some sort of Heaven for the living to enjoy each day.
