Governmental Psychology 101

This is how psychology 101 works.

Monkey Scatching Monkey

If you start with a cage containing five monkeys and inside the cage, hang a

banana on a string from the top and then you place a set of stairs under the

banana, before long a monkey will go to the stairs and climb toward the


As soon as he touches the stairs, you spray all the other monkeys with cold

water. After a while another monkey makes an 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 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 five monkeys, replacing it with a new

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

The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment... with enthusiasm.

Then, replace a third original monkey with a new one, followed by 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 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


Speak no evil monkeys

Finally, having replaced all of the original monkeys, none of the remaining

monkeys will have ever been sprayed with cold water.

Nevertheless, none 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, my friends, is how Congress operates... and is why, from time to time,

all of the monkeys need to be REPLACED AT THE SAME TIME.
