'Do you know how to catch wild pigs?'

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

'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 an d 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:
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.

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!

The only thing I can add to this is a question for you......
Which candidates out there are most eager to spread
around the feed corn, and what might their motives be?
Think about it.

Congratulations to Jeff Hughes. Jeff is a nice, well meaning, honest person. It's nice to see that the general public doesn't listen to all the crap that's been disseminated.

Sit back and watch how hard he fights against "forced sewer hook ups" after his pre-election grandstanding.

"Congratulations to Jeff Hughes. Jeff is a nice, well meaning, honest person" whom is heavily supported, easily lead by lawyers, bankers, realtors and developers with a self serving interest in our tax dollars supporting their cause; not peoples rights.
If people believe he is supporting People's Rights, they should attend the commissioners meetings and watch him stumble for words while representing US plebeians.
