    Catching Pigs

    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.............


    CATCHING PIGS

    THIS IS TRULY THOUGHT PROVOKING. TAKE THE TIME TO READ IT
    AND SEND IT ON TO THOSE THAT YOU THINK ARE WORTH SENDING
    IT TO.


    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.

    Sadly....this is true.
    Are you a 3%er? If you aren't, you should be.

    Awesome read Mack. Very true.
    It's better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.
