Give a Man a Fish, you feed him for a day. Teach him to fish he can feed himself for a lifetime.
Raise him to believe That that guy’s fish over there is your fish but he’s too greedy to share it with you (besides he has plenty) and government can take it and give it to you for free because you deserves it he becomes a Democrat.
THIS IS TRULY THOUGHT PROVOKING.
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.
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!
But you’ll be safe from evil Big Gulps! Here, have some weed instead… 🙂
In a democracy it’s your vote that counts. In feudalism it’s your count that votes.
Speaking of being slowly caged in:
The Doctor Patient Medical Association has released a new survey of about 700 doctors, and the results are bleak. Scary bleak. Among other dismal figures, Doctors’ Attitudes on the Future of Medicine: What’s Wrong, Who’s to Blame, and What Will Fix It found that 83% of respondents are contemplating leaving the industry if Obamacare is fully implemented, owing to its disastrous projected consequences. Indeed, they openly blame the healthcare law for their industry’s woes:
- 90% say the medical system is on the WRONG TRACK
- 83% say they are thinking about QUITTING
- 61% say the system challenges their ETHICS
- 85% say the patient-physician relationship is in a TAILSPIN
- 65% say GOVERNMENT INVOLVEMENT is most to blame for current problems
- 72% say individual insurance mandate will NOT result in improved access care
- 49% say they will STOP accepting Medicaid patients
- 74% say they will STOP ACCEPTING Medicare patients, or leave Medicare completely
- 52% say they would rather treat some Medicaid/Medicare patient for FREE
- 57% give the AMA a FAILING GRADE representing them
- 1 out of 3 doctors is HESITANT to voice their opinion
- 2 out of 3 say they are JUST SQUEAKING BY OR IN THE RED financially
- 95% say private practice is losing out to CORPORATE MEDICINE
- 80% say DOCTORS/MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS are most likely to help solve things
- 70% say REDUCING GOVERNMENT would be single best fix.
If this isn’t an airtight argument for the repeal of Obamacare, nothing is. (Townhall)
Former Speaker Pelosi said “we’re ironclad on the constitutionality” of ObamaCare.
But don’t worry, it’s all Bush’s Fault anyways (Fence) and Mormons are wierd people (Fence) and Rich People (except the ones giving Obama $40,000 a plate) are evil (Fence) and here are the all the freebies (Caught you). 🙂
Congrats, you are now a feudal slave to the government. Enjoy.
