Catching wild pigs
A thought to remember, Carl Marx, said,
“Remove one freedom per generation,
and soon you will have no freedom,
and no one 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, communists who were trying to overthrow his
country’s government and install a new communist regime.
During 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 of the fence.
The pigs, which are used to getting 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 & Canada. The government keeps pushing
us toward Communism/Socialism. It keeps spreading out the free
corn in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax
credits 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.
One should always remember two truths:
1. There is no such thing as a free lunch, and
2. You can never hire someone to provide a service for you cheaper than You can do it yourself.
Who could argue with this logical reasoning that has succeeded in Europe?
If you see that all of this wonderful government “help” is a problem confronting the future of democracy in America and Canada, 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!
Think about this:
Quote for today:
“The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.”
A vote for Biden is a vote for Pelosi, Schumer, AOC, Omar…Et-Al.
And the gate slammed shut!
