Do you know how to catch wild pigs?

Posted: 4th February 2008 by

“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 littl e at a time.

One should always remember two truths:

1) There is no such thing as a free lunch

2) 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.
