      CATCHING PIGS
       THIS IS THOUGHT PROVOKING.
      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 Prof 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 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, 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 cuts, 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:
       
      1) There is no such thing as a free lunch
       
      2) 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 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!
