How to Catch Wild Pigs
Author unknown

There was a chemistry professor in a large college that had some
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 punch line.

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 every day 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, so 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 toward
Communism/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 not to plant crops (CRP),
welfare, medicine, drugs, free medical, $600 economic stimulus, 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 yourself.

Bravo to the young man! He explained it perfectly.

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
way of life then you will probably delete this e-mail, but God help you
when the gate slams shut!

'A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough
to take away everything you have.'
-- Thomas Jefferson
Government cannot give something away that they have not already taken from someone else.
That was a very good post and I agree, but are we the pigs or just the smaller ones and the bigger ones are feeding US?
Thats the way i see it. Thank god that i am not the only one that sees it the same way. Good post !!:)
