Wild Pigs

Friends and Family, PLEASE let me know what you think of this.


Excellent read!


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 Prof 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 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

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

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, 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! "
Another thing - "You can never hire someone to provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself."

Also, if you see that all of this wonderful government 'help' is a
problem confronting the future of democracy in America, you might
want to share this with your friends and loved ones.

If you think the free ride is essential to your way of life then you will
ignore this, but God help you when the gate slams shut!
