Interesting perspective



THE 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 (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 government.

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 this 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, who are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat, so you 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 to America .. He said, "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, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare, medicine, drugs, free medical, etc., while we continually lose our freedoms - just a little at a time."

WE ARE THE WILD PIGS. Can't you see it?

One should always remember: There is no such thing as a free lunch! Also, a politician will never 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 and your family when the gate slams shut!

'A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take away everything you have.'

As a visitor to America in 2001, someone asked me what I thought of America.
My answer was: "I think it is the best run Communist country in the world"
Was I right or was I wrong. Your article makes a lot of sense. As a South African, I can only say: "Eisch !!"

There's a rumble just beginning under our feet. If you're in tune with the fault lines that run throughout the homes of America, you can start to feel it. I can't predict when or where or how it's going to surface but it feels like a locomotive is approaching. I suspect when it hits, it will run over everything in it's path. There will be waves that swallow up and spit out all our "leaders". Few will survive the revolt.

As each day goes by and I see or hear new of the next "change" our leaders plan to implement, I realize that this is just one more stick of dynamite that will eventually explode when the real revolt takes place. Remember, it just takes one final piece of straw to break the camels back. It will happen and I think sooner than most think.

Are you still with us? When you said the US is "the best run Communist country in the world" please tell me why. I find this very upsetting.

What does "Eisch" mean?

Thank you

Maybe I should have said it is the best run police state in the world.
Study communism, it is father against son, mother against daughter, brother against brother.... No feelings are safe, anyone can split you to the authoroties. accuse any person of wrongdoing, whether real or not and the powers that be will come down on such a person like a ton of bricks and the onus is on that person to defend him/herself at enormous cost.
During the McCarthy era people were accused of communism by the same communist methods they were accused of. How many Japanese were rounded up and sent to camps during WW2, with no proof of wrongdoing? Look at the present time, any one just looking like an Arab is a suspect.
Have you counted how many law enforcement agencies are in your country. Just by getting up in the morning can land you in trouble!!!
You might not have knowledge of concentration camps in your country but I will bet my bottom dollar they are there, prepared for the day citizens are rounded up on trumped-up charges.
"Eisch" is actually a sound made by some of our black people, it is when you do not know what to say or to answer a question, for instance after you had a few drinks and somebody offers you another drink and you do not know whether you should have it, so you say "eish". If they pass you a drink, it is OK, if they don't, it is also OK!!

To those who don't know, the Democratic party took up the communistic agenda back in the 40's. Look at what the socialistic ticket runner back in 1944 said. And it has also been slipped by a present day democrat here.
Look at the current state of welfare, social security, and the newest socialistic approach the new healthcare plan.
Socialism is coming to this country. Look into the new bill HR45, its the Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sale Act of 2009, once our gun freedoms fall, we will be subjects, not citizens.
Communism is coming to this country unless we take action. It's beginning to rear it's ugly head, are we ready for big brother to own us?

Those interested in backgrounds might want to consider checking out www.lewrockwell.com and www.mises.org

Not only is the US going down the tube (this has been going on for much longer than you might think !), other parts of the world are in no better position. The EU is fast becoming a more and more fascist place as well, as is the US.

Just so you know, and to avoid confusion about the term communism and fascism:

in communism there is no provate ownership, just common ownership. The central leaders decide its use.

in fascism there is private ownership, but the owners are not allowed to use their posessions as they wish. The central leaders decide.

The latter is what Adolf H.'s business was all about. This is also increasingly happening in the US, EU and elsewhere.

Do yourself a favor (or favour for the English..) and educate yourself. WARNING: Do NOT believe the BS history lessons that come out of the public school system. It's biased towards the state.

A good introductory film is Freedom to Fascicsm from Aaron Russo, who passed on last year unfortunately.
This is my new signature: "new signature".

When South Africa fought against communism it was touted as the "minority whites oppressing the majority blacks".
Today the blacks (communists) run this country, this week we have strikes by municipal workers. Guess what, the firefighters became fire starters and the first thing they did was to burn the white firemen's cars. after that they burned the municipal gardens, they are still on strike, destroying everything in their path.
How does that affect America?
Firstly they remove your firearms like they did with South Africa. They outlaw guns, then only the outlaws will have guns. (Supplied by the communist government. Our police chief is on extended leave, pending investigation into his connection with the Mafia!!! Nice guy) No wonder people are getting murdered by the THOUSANDS in this country.
A white gets killed by a black, no problem, a white kills a black and everyone screams RACISM and the unions go on strike and demand the highest sentence.
And behind all this sits your State Department and their cronies, working towards a united World Order. I hope to God average Joe American can still do something about all this although I very much doubt it, he is enjoying his corn.
This is the way we handed our country over to the communists, as long as we have our TV and our barbeque and our rugby, we are happy campers and in the mean time the country is run into the ground.
When I was visiting your country in 1998, I told people what is happening in my country and one guy said: "We are Americans, we do not have to worry about these things" Surprise, surprise, only ten years on and I think you have more than enough to worry about.
We already call Pretoria "Little Beijing" because the mainland Chinese are infiltrating this country, from government right down to the smallest country town. A very hardhitting TV program was pulled off the air by our communist masters because it upset the chinese government
Look around you, the fences are up, are you enjoying your corn?
