Catching Wild Pigs

I got this in an email and wanted to share... hope everyone has a good weekend!

Thoughts to ponder with the bail outs and so called
"tax cuts".

Catching Wild Pigs

A chemistry professor in a large college
had some exchange students in the class. One day while the class was
in the lab the Professor 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! Also, a politician will never
provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself.

Also, if you see that all of this
wonderful government 'help' is a problem confronting the future of > 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!

Keep your eyes on the newly elected
politicians who are about to slam the gate on America .

everything you want, is big enough to take away everything you have"

Very relevant

I see this in NY. Keep restricting aspects of our life. Then when they give a little of your freedom back the people are happy. Cycle....
They tax away industry then give incentives to who can produce in the state. This creates jobs but controlled jobs. This gives more power to the state because they decide who can build factories in the state.

Kinda like when the master gives the dog a bone. The dog is then so happy with its bone..

Thank you
