Catching Wild Pigs
A chemistry professor in a large college 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?'
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
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 toward
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,
- 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.
Finally , 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,
God help you when the gate slams shut!
Keep your eyes on
the newly elected politicians who are 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 exactly what our goverment is doing with our rights to own dogs,
pets of all kinds. One day in the future, maybe not for 10 or 20 years, maybe not in our lifetime but in our children's future
it will be illegal to own a dog, purchase or breed a dog. That is what is happening with the new laws we are allowing the
government to impose upon us. The manatory spay/neuter laws are not going to help the unwanted pets, strays that are in the
shelters! They are helping the commercial puppy millers! Whose money do you think is behind the new laws? We need more money
spent on knowledge to people, what happens when they breed their beloved pet Buffy to the neighbors dog? What happens to the
puppies of Buffy and Bandit? Will they get good homes? Will their owners also breed them to the dog down the street? What
about the scrupulous breeder on the internet that sells sick or disabled puppies to UNKNOWING people? We need knowledge, not
have our rights taken away from us because of the problems resulting from stupidity. There I said it.
