Catching Wild Pigs

>> September 12, 2009

Interesting analogy:
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 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!
Keep your eyes on the newly elected politicians who are about to slam the gate on America .
"A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take away everything you have”"
Thomas Jefferson



From Gateway Pundit "Hundreds of US doctors and their supporters marched on Washington yesterday to protest against the Democratic plan to nationalize health care."
I wonder if anyone saw this on TASS, ABC, MSNBC, NBC, CBS or CNN?


The ACORN pimp-shielding network?

>> September 11, 2009

Video via Hot Air: "According to ACORN’s staff in DC, a pimp is a “marketeer” or “consultant.” It’s okay to have 10 Salvadorean underage girls turning tricks in the house ACORN will help arrange for them, because the pimps are “just the landlord.” As long as they have a profit and loss report, they have no problems."
Where is the outrage in the MSM? This is worse than reprehensible. How much corruption are we going to put up with?

Solving Healthcare Through Verbosity
"I've finally figured out what it is about liberals. They speak a different language. It's a language not even meant to be understood by ordinary human beings but only by those in the know. "

From Scott Ott at Pajamas Media: "The elaborate shell game local politicians play with our money is the biggest threat to our freedom."
 Where is the transparency?
"Lawmakers receive an endless parade of people seeking government contracts or free services. Notably missing from the parade are the people who will pay for all of it."
Amen Brother!

Van Jones Resigns!

From Pajamas Media and Ed Driscoll, "CNN: White House green jobs czar Van Jones resigns, blames lies and ‘vicious smear campaign’ against him."

Guffaw! - Poor Baby. Want a little cheese with that?
Good Riddance...
