I recieved this as an email. If you would like to copy this and email it, feel free, it definately makes you stop and think.............
THIS IS TRULY THOUGHT PROVOKING. TAKE THE TIME TO READ IT
AND SEND IT ON TO THOSE THAT YOU THINK ARE WORTH SENDING
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, 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 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, 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 cuts, 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 you when the gate slams shut!
My dad, I miss him every day.
