Catching Wild Pigs

We received this post from Carl Paladino; it is entitled ‘Catching Wild Pigs’. The author is unknown. It is signed only as ‘KD’.  It expresses in simple language what many of us feel deeply today: the erosion of liberty through the expansion of government services to us, the once wild – but ever being tamed ‘pigs.’

A thought to remember, Marx said, “Remove one freedom per generation and soon you will have no freedom and no one would have noticed.”

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 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 food”.

“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, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare entitlements, medicine, drugs, etc., while we continually lose our freedoms, just a little at a time as the  government forces us to participate in many of these programs whether or not we want to.

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 by those that vote for a living.”

Think about the above and how it relates to what is going on in this country right now.  It is about time to stand up and say NO MORE.  Email this to your representatives and let them know that you are awake and taking a stand!!

“We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately” ~ Benjamin Franklin July 4th http://southbuffalonews.com776

“Those who hammer their guns into plowshares will plow for those who do not”. ~ Thomas Jefferson

“God grants liberty only to those who love it, and are always ready to guard and defend it.” ~ Daniel Webster http://southbuffalonews.com834

“What, Sir, is the use of a militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty…. Whenever Governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins.” Rep. Elbridge Gerry of Massachusetts, spoken during floor debate over the Second Amendment [I Annals of Congress at 750, August http://southbuffalonews.com7, http://southbuffalonews.com789])
