I was sent this the other day by someone, who I will not mention, knows my thoughts on things. I have been looking for this for a long time, so I thank that person very much. :tu


CATCHING WILD PIGS

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 again. 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 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 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" as a problem confronting the future of a republican form of government in the world, citizens of America and her western allies who cherish the rights of the individual, you might want to TELL this to your friends.

If you think the free ride is essential to your way of life, then you will probably badmouth this post and say how bad a person I am for presenting it.

BUT, God help us all when the gate slams shut!

Not a truer bunch of words spoken !
The growing problem with the western culture is that of "getting something for free" instead of earning it is becoming more prevalent within the younger generation

Agreed. The 'Catching of the Wild Pigs' in action. They have been raised on the government handouts, so now expect them. Moreover, they are willing to trade away their freedoms in exchange for the 'free ride'.

Did you ever read my entire 'history' on the cause for war between the UST and Republic of Roma Mater? I know you saw the parts involving the Tsak, but I cannot remember if I sent you the rest of it.



Cheers, Thor
