    Wake up people!!

    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 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,
    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

    Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
    Eat it, Play with it, or piss on it, and walk away!

    As smart as man is, we haven't been able to invent a machine that can smell drugs or tell us where a person has walked, Dogs are sophisticated investigative tools!

    That also works for catching sheep.

    The sad thing is I see this happening all over this country. Most people don't realize it and demand more social programs. I hate to see what this country will be like 50 years from now.
    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    This parable would have a chilling effect on the downward spiral if we could convince the Democrats of the truth in the story.

    Putting up pigs at the public trough will always result in captured pigs.

    You can be the weapon, and the gun in your hand is a tool - or the gun is a weapon and you are the tool.

    I was looking for a saint who was a devil of a lover,
    but every girl I found was either one way or the other...
