WILD PIGS ~ Have you ever hunted wild pigs?

Karl MarxA thought to remember; Karl Marx said, “Remove one freedom per generation and soon you will have no freedom and no one would have noticed!”

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 wrong?

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 food.”

“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 freebie programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tax exemptions, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare entitlements, medicine, drugs, etc., while we continually lose our freedoms, Affordable Health Care (Obamacare), net neutrality regulations (govt. internet control) etc., just a little at a time.!

Should Gun Control become law we will officially become a socialistic state and be well on our way toward a totalitarian communist state.  

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 share this with your friends.

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

BUT, God help us all when the gate slams shut!

    I seem to have heard this story before. The people in my trade, who came to the U.S. to enjoy freedom seem to be wise to this ploy. One Romanian even said the American people are stupid because we don’t appreciate the freedoms we have and are unwilling to stop the advances of socialism. Socialism is the inevitable first step to communism. This was a while ago and I remember getting pretty pissed off but guess what? Over time these facts are more visible every day. Our own Republican party is plotting against us. Keep your powder dry and pray for our nation.

      Wayne, you are absolutely correct and many, many people don’t realize it: Socialism is the first step to Communism.

      During the 70’s and early 80’s, we studied this in Professional Military Education classes. The Soviet Union never achieved pure Communism as they never achieved full Socialism. Trying to reach this goal broke their nation and they collapsed. Today we’re trying to achieve Socialism and are 18+ Trillion in debt and growing.

    It takes an outsider to show us what is happening. Reagan warned us that we are all only one generation from losing our freedom. Those that have not earned this freedom, take it for granted, and have no idea what they are giving up when they let the govt slowly take it away. Like a bunch of trust fund babies who have no value of the sizable amount of money they piss away.

    If you could transport Americans from a hundred years ago, and bring them to America today, they wouldn’t recognize this place. And I don’t mean the physical changes or advances in technology, I mean they would not recognize not only their govt, but the people who call themselves Americans today. They would not understand how we have not yet taken up arms and stopped the madness that is the US govt. They would not believe how so many would give up their valuable freedom for welfare and safety. They would not only be shocked, they would be saddened.

    Our Founding Fathers are spinning in their graves. I saw it printed somewhere recently, that John Adams had stated:

    “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

    America society is no longer moral and just. Way too many people are either willing to screw over or harm the next guy for a small benefit in return, or people will sell out themselves for a small slice of free cheese. Our Founding Fathers would be appalled at the conduct Americans condone.

    The article I read was sobering, as it stated quite clearly, that we are doomed. Even if Trump is elected, it is only a small reprieve, as our bad politicians are only the symptoms of the real issue. That issue is We The People as a whole, are no longer moral and just. When you have a majority of the people electing bad politicians because of promises of gifts from out treasury, and for their own selfish benefit, well, that’s mob rule, not democracy. And when 50% plus one get to dictate to the rest of us, who want rule of law and not rule of majority, well, it’s all downhill from there.

    Trump will make some positive changes, but if we are to persevere, we as a people need to change. Diversity is NOT a strength…it is a divider of a people with a common goal. Special interest, and foreign invaders get preferential treatment over the “common” man, well, then we have our priorities turned around.

    The greatest good for the greatest number of people should be the rule. Integrity and common values will hold us together. But as long as we continue to divide and separate, and break up our country….well, that is what we will get…a broken and divided people. And like Rome, like the Titanic, we will falter, we will sink. No one wants to admit that America can fail…but rest assured, we will not be the first great civilization to go away, while the future archeologists will one day theorize how it could have happened. In the whole scheme of things, we really aren’t all that great in comparison to other great civilizations that have failed. Rome was over twice the age we are now and dozens of great civilizations existed for over a thousand years before finally falling for reasons unknown. I will say this, I bet one of the main reasons ALL of them no longer exist, is because they stopped doing whatever it was that made them great to begin with. Look at what made America number one. Freedom and liberty. The foundation of America. And we all see where those are headed. Chipped away slowly, until soon, the gate slams shut.

    Right now, the fence is in place…I see it, and so do so many others. The only reason they have shut the gate is our 2d Amendment. I know this, the moment they do away with it, and take our guns, we are done for. There will be no one to stop them from locking us in. The fact that we have let it go this far scares the crap out of me.

    America will fall that is for sure. No one can be so arrogant as to believe their civilization can last forever. It just will not survive forever. The only thing we can control, is for how long. Do we do nothing, and become a footnote in some future history text, a small blip for a couple of centuries barely worth mentioning, or do we survive long enough to establish our worth for an entire chapter in the book. That is all we can hope for.
