Catching Wild Pigs

A chemistry professor in a large college had some foreign exchange
students in the class. One day while the class was in the lab, the
Professor noticed one young man (exchange student) who kept rubbing
his back, and stretching as if his back hurt..

The professor asked the young man what was the matter. The student
told him he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while
fighting communists in his native country who were trying to
overthrow his country's government and install a new communist government.

In the midst of his story he looked at the professor and asked a
strange question. He asked, 'Do you know how to catch wild pigs?'

The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punchline. The
young man said this was no joke. 'You catch wild pigs by finding a
suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs
find it and begin to come everyday to eat the free corn.

When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side
of the place where they are used to coming. When they get used to the
fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side
of the fence. They get used to that and start to eat again.

You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a
gate in the last side. The pigs, who are used to the free corn, start
to come through the gate to eat, you slam the gate on them and catch
the whole herd.

Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and
around inside the fence, but they are caught. Soon they go back to
eating the free corn. They are so used to it that they have forgotten
how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity.

The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees
happening to America . The government keeps pushing us towards
socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of
programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income,
tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments to not plant crops
(CRP), welfare, and promises of government-run healthcare, etc....
While we continually lose our freedoms -- just a little at a time.

One should always remember: There is no such thing as a free lunch..
Also, a politician will never provide a service for you cheaper than
you can do it for yourself.

If you see that all of this wonderful government 'help' is a problem
confronting the future of democracy in America , you might want to
send this on to your friends. If you think the free ride is essential
to your well being, then God help you, and us, when the gate slams shut!

Just maybe you will be able to tell who is about to slam the gate on America .


"A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big
enough to take away everything you have."

This is so true. I don't belong to any political class because I think that there is good and bad on both sides (dem and rep). but gosh..this certainly is a profound way of thinking about the situation facing us today. It won't be long, and America will no longer be known as "the land of the free"...yeah right...at a tremendous cost to it's citizens. Free? I think not.
