How to Catch Wild Pigs

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 TO,
AS I HAVE DONE.

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!
