Catching pigs

Author unknown

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 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 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 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 “real truths”:1

1. 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.

2. “A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take away everything you have” - Thomas Jefferson    

3. Give a Man a Fish; you feed him for a day. Teach him to fish he can feed himself for a lifetime. 

4. May God help you when the gate slams shut!

  • Good post, been preaching this for many years and as we enter the 2017 harvest season canning; dills, salsa, tomatoe juice, stewed tomatoes, jelly from the raspberry patch, top crop green beans and replenishing the dry goods. Well folks the day will come and you best have a good supply of food, water stores, medical and the means to keep it going and to protect it otherwise you are the food. Years ago, was a time when we taught people to take care of family and friends, today the attitude is I'll just take what you have when they get hungry. People aren't listening today, the government has transformed society to expect the hand outs, the free lunch, made it possible for the cartels to bring their drugs across the border and destroy independent thinking, motivation and work ethic. Remember the 60's, love the one your with, now it's take whatever you want. Thank God for bringing Trump's independent ideology but I fear it won't last long. Prepare folks the dark days are approaching. God never promised you and I wouldn't go through very hard times before his return. The idea that Christian America will be saved from darkness are fairy tales. God gives you all that you need but you must put legs on the prayers. Do you see your Christian Brothers and sisters being slaughtered around the world. We are not favored over others in God's eye. As the old saying, time to ***t or get off the pot.
    Thanks for the post Oscar, simple truth goes a long way.
