THIS IS THOUGHT PROVOKING! SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT,
FOR THOSE WHO ARE THINKING!
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, an 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 regime.
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 that it 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
You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in
the last side.
"The pigs, which are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate
to eat that free corn again. You then slam the gate on them and catch the
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
in 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,tax exemptions, tobacco
subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare,
medicine, drugs, etc. while we continually lose our freedoms, just a little
at a time.
One should always remember two truths:
There is no such thing as a free lunch, and you can never hire someone to
provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it 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 way of
life, then you will probably delete this email.
But, God help us all when the gate slams shut!

“When a government is dependent for money upon the bankers, they and not the government leaders control the nation. This is because the hand that gives is above the hand that takes. Financiers are without patriotism and without decency.”
