The Summit


In the heat of Ghana’s Northern Region Mole National Park the elephant called a summit for the congress of animals to meet and discuss the bill sponsored by the zebras to make the water hole a safe zone for the survival of the park’s animal resident. It is an inalienable right to drink & bath; even the vultures are afraid to land and exercise that right. Consider that the most barbarous animal; the humans; have rules of engagement when they prey on each other; are the humans better then us? Lion king roared; humans! Better than us! No way; we’ll show them who’s better. The Predator Party agree; no preying on the sick weak & young or hunting the strong around the water hole.

      • Hello True George,

        Even more interesting is that according to Wikipedia ( ) this animated movie was partly funded by the CIA:

        “Animal Farm is a 1954 British-American animated comedy-drama film produced by Halas and Batchelor, based on the book Animal Farm by George Orwell. It was the first British animated feature (Water for Firefighting and Handling Ships, two feature length wartime training films, were produced earlier, but did not receive a formal cinema release). The US CIA paid for the filming, part of the American cultural offensive during the Cold War, and influenced how Orwell’s ideas were to be presented. The CIA initially funded Louis de Rochemont to begin work on a film version of Orwell’s work and he hired Halas & Batchelor, an animation firm in London that had made propaganda films for the British government.[5]”

        Cool, I have seen the book, but I have never read it.

        Thank you for responding,
        -John Jr
