  • Catching wild pigs

    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 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 corn. When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down on 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 Communism/Socialism and keeps spreading 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 medicine, drugs, etc., while we continually lose our freedoms, just a little at a time.

    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 send this to your friends. If you think the free ride is essential to your way of life, then you might want to delete this.

    But God help us all if the gate slams shut.

    Quote for the day
    The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who cote for a living.

    The 2nd Amendment is all that keeps the gate open.

      Dale I agree with you. My state just signed into law new gun restrictions. they include the following:

      3 day waiting period for all firarms

      Age raised to 21 to buy a firearm Even though we can serve in the military at age 17!!!!!

      Modification to weapons like MOD stocks is illegal,

      My question is:. Now that the camel (Liberals) have their nose under the test flap what is going to stop them from taking all our guns away???????

        I think this says it best.

        The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary.

        Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is you are stupid, and make bad decisions.

          Dalewick: I certainly agree with your comment on the 2nd Amendment. I would add, if it wasn't for the 2nd Amendment you wouldn't have any of the others.

              They are working on that Country Guy. If the next elections vote in more dems, we can kiss the 2nd amendment goodby. I am starting to think that CA is in the lead of closing that gate.

                We in Kaliforniastan are already in the funk when it comes to freedom of firearms. If a rifle has a "Collapsible" stock and a "flash suppressor" and a "forward" grip its an assault rifle. (Has to be registered) PLUS..they have to have a "bullet catch" magazine release. OH AND.. NO 30 round magazines.

                The list goes on and on.....

                  When the USSR collapsed I remember thinking, finally socialism will go away and China will even change. I could of never dreamed so many in my own country would want socialism. There so willing to give up what so many have died and been maimed to earn. And, the saddest still is I truly believe the majority of our elected officials will sell us out for there own wealth and power. We better keep our guns. It's looking like we will need them to keep those rights we are endowed with.

                    Well I'm trying to raise my kids to enjoy shooting and to value their 2nd Amendment rights and to understand that sadly at some point in their life they may have to actually be prepared to fight to keep them.

                      Dale you are so right on that. I only have one gun that is registered. I am going out soon to get a couple of shotguns but don't think I can get another hand gun without registering it. Unless anyone knows how to get one without it being registered..

                        Don't know about VA, but in WV hit the Flea markets. All private sales have no records. The only other option is to make one from a 80% receiver.

                            Slightly off-topic:
                            "you can never hire someone to provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself."
                            That's provided you have all the necessary tools and skills, and intend to use them again and again...
                            In many cases, replace 'never' by 'often'.
                            I'm sorry this clashes with the 'self reliance' ethic, but you may put your savings to good use...

                              that's the problem with the UK, self reliance has been replaced with "get someone in".
                              that's okay ,maybe, for the here and now, as long as you can pay for it, but in a post collapse world you'd be stuffed, already the general public in the UK is on average "4 generations removed from the land" and have little or no knowledge of where and how their food is produced.
