I've been watching the masses just fall over themselves trying to hear or be near Obama. I couldn't help but think of the story, "The Pied Piper of Hamelin". The similarities of that story to today are scary if not just amazing.

Good, then all the dems will end up drowning in the ocean and the rest of us will live happily ever after.

But after all the Dems drown and we don't pay up, he takes all the kids. Well on second thought... :rolleyes:

In a brazen threadjack, I've actually been there. It is spelled Hameln. The town is along the Fairie Tale Road that the Brothers Grimm were supposed to have traveled and got their inspiration for several of their stories. On a wall of a building there is a clock that has an action of the rats being led out followed by the children.

Was that in their biopic that was released a few years back, "The Brothers Grimm"? :D
