I wish this was originally mine, but it is not.
I don’t know who the author is. It was sent to be in an email but I thought it was so relevant I wanted to share it here on the PoliticallyUnEZ blog.
More and more we are seeing this play out in society. It has already caused the destruction of our way of life and before the next four years are over, maybe our Republic. This isn’t a new concept. But it is the first time in my lifetime I can remember seeing it so masterfully played out by the left. The Socialists and the Communists currently infiltrated within our Executive, Judicial and Legislative branches are hard at work and have created a tremendous machine far more talented than our Conservative opposition. I think they have two sides of the pen already in place with healthcare and immigration. As they complete the third side with gun control and disarmament, all that is remaining is the nationalization of our banks, industry and finally our food supply to have us penned in.
There is nothing wrong with what Justice Scalia said today. We need more like him, within our government to stand up, ignore the political correctness, and call a spade a spade, and call out entitlements for what they are which is the furthering of the Socialist ideal.
Enjoy the story.
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 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.
