Wild pigs; A parable and a fact.

About the below  parable-Lets’ see-Greece-already with  big international loans, claim they are about to run  out  of  money-  Venezuela, who stole most  business  years ago, took  over  the grocery chains  last week, cause their folks are  hungry-starving,  Cuba died,  many  years ago-Probably could N Korea be on the list and no doubt  the  parable  will remind you of some  other past last nations or “some  just around the corner”??   Isn’t  is amazing-two  tied together  countries-N Korea-S Korea-one  booming-one dying-Just a small  amount of  people-dictators, can  get all the “pigs” fenced in !! PS  As  you disembark those cruise ships to explore  those  nations to  our south-it “hits  you in the face” unless you  have your eyes closed ,   along with your mind!!!

Wild pigs; A parable and a  fact.

One day while in class at a large college, a 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, the student looked at the professor and asked a strange  question, “Do you know how to catch  wild pigs?”

The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch  line.  The young man assured the professor that his  question was no joke and went on to say.

“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 now used to and want the free corn,  eventually begin to come through the gate to get to the free  corn. When all the pigs get inside, you slam the gate and  catch the whole herd.

Suddenly the wild pigs have lost  their freedom. They are  confused and run around inside the  fence, but 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, welfare entitlements, medicine, drugs, etc.,  while we continually lose our freedoms, just a little at a  time.

God help us all when the gate slams shut! Marx once said, “Remove  one freedom per generation and soon you will have no freedom  and no one would have noticed.”

If you think the free ride is essential to your way of life,  then you will probably not share this.
