THIS IS THOUGHT PROVOKING!
There was a chemistry professor in a large college that
exchange students in the class. One day while the class
was in the lab,
the professor noticed one young man, an exchange student,
rubbing his back and stretching as if his back hurt. The
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
and install a new communist regime.
In the midst of his story, he looked at the professor and
strange question. He asked: "Do you know how to catch
The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the
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
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
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
They run around and around inside the fence, but they are
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
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 two truths: There is no such
thing as a free
lunch, and you can never hire someone to provide a service
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 us all when the gate slams shut!
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."

So they come out of college propagandized, hopelessly in debt and with a brain wired via computer. The real tragedy is the the education is watered down.
We have a lot of work to do.
