Wild Pigs…


Wild Pigs

>>    This is a word to the wise, if you can understand   what’s going on around you, then you are better off.
>>
>>   There was a history professor in a large college that had some exchange students in the class.
>>
>>    One day, 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,  welfare entitlements, 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 share this with your friends.
>>
>>    If you think the free ride is essential to your way of life,  then you will probably not share this.
>>
>>    BUT, God help us all when the gate slams shut!
>>
>>    Quote for today: “The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are now
>>    outnumbered.”

About Jim G.

I truely believe that what should matter most in life is how you see yourself, not how someone else tries to convince you to see yourself. *****Life is not about "finding yourself"*****its about creating yourself.!!!!! I write and post things here because I like to think I am contributing some things of value to my world. Some times a little humor, some times things with a more serious tone, but hopefully always in good taste. If what I post occasionally bites a politician in the ass, all the better :>)
