Catching pigs.

H/T Patty Golden

I am posting this because I have started putting corn in the pig run in my back yard – I know it works. 


“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.”

That is exactly what we see 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. BOTH Republicans and Democrats do it.

One should always remember two truths:

1) There is no such thing as a free lunch. Someone is paying for it

2) And when you begin to think that having your government
provide for you and make your decisions is OK, realize that you've
also given up the freedom that goes with making your own choices.

'There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation.  

 One is by the sword, the other is by debt.'
