I think this is the definitive revision of the original joke.

Thanks, I shared that on FB, and have had about 5 people copy it on their FB statuses.

Maybe tweak it a little to say the CEO moves the factory to Mexico and the union thug gets laid off and the tea partier demands an end to NAFTA and NAU

CEO offers to buy the cookies with his own personal funds and offers Tea Party Activist to work for him. He fronts money for a marketing budget and plan so they can both make a living. The Union guy pressures the Tea Party Activist to Unionize and give him dues so he can pay for lobbying politicians to create a more lucrative cookie-selling environment using taxpayer money. Price of cookies rises. Our taxes increase. Union pressures CEO to raise Tea Party Activist's pay and puts CEO out of business so now we all have to get our cookies from CHINA!

People forget that the default setting of human kind is ‘Poverty’. You can easily prove this by looking anywhere on earth or in history where there are no corporations or industry. Those people live in mud huts and die at age thirty from treatable diseases. We don’t have to live like that because we have evil corporations.
