American 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 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:

1. There is no such thing as a free lunch, and

2. 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 us all when the gate slams shut!

The Bronze Rat

A Tourist walked into a Chinese curio shop in San Francisco. While looking around at the exotic merchandise, he noticed a very lifelike, life-sized, bronze statue of a rat. It had no price tag, but was so incredibly striking the tourist decided he must have it. He took it to the old shop owner and asked, "How much for the bronze rat?"

"Ahhh, you have chosen wisely! It is $12 for the rat and $100 for the story," said the wise old China-man.

The tourist quickly pulled out twelve dollars. "I'll just take the rat, you can keep the story".

As he walked down the street carrying his bronze rat, the tourist noticed that a few real rats had crawled out of the alleys and sewers and had begun following him down the street. This was a bit disconcerting so he began walking faster.

A couple blocks later he looked behind him and saw to his horror the herd of rats behind him had grown to hundreds, and they began squealing.

Sweating now, the tourist began to trot toward San Francisco Bay.

Again, after a couple blocks, he looked around only to discover that the rats now numbered in the MILLIONS, and were squealing and coming toward him faster and faster.

Terrified, he ran to the edge of the Bay and threw the bronze rat as far as he could into the Bay.

Amazingly, the millions of rats all jumped into the Bay after the bronze rat and were all drowned.

The man walked back to the curio shop in Chinatown.

"Ahhh," said the owner, "You come back for story?"

"No sir," said the man, "I came back to see if you have a bronze Democrat."

Presidential Pranks in Modern America

Obama Gives Away Oil Rich Islands To Russia

Obama Donates 7 Alaska Islands to Putin for $0.

We don't hear about this in the news. What is going on????

This is what our beloved president Obama has done in 2012 for America so far this year. This got very little press to keep it unknown from the American public. Why is he getting away with all of this?

Is there a "REST OF THE STORY"?

This Feb. 16, 2012 article appears in very few places. Apparently, mainstream media consider Obama giving away islands belonging to Alaska as no big deal. Obama is giving these islands to Russia for free, no cost, $0 money or any other consideration. Guess what? The state legislature in Alaska (still one of our 50 states) voted several times in opposition to THE GIVEAWAY! The islands have billions of barrels of OIL and Obama could let oil companies lease parts of the islands and start drilling for MORE OIL!! Should you suspect Obama was trying to sneak this by........? Why? <>;. Obama's State Department is giving away seven strategic, resource-laden Alaskan islands to the Russians. Yes, to the Putin regime in the Kremlin. The seven islands in the Arctic Ocean and Bering Sea include one the size of Rhode Island and Delaware combined. The Russians are also to get the tens of thousands of square miles of oil-rich seabed's surrounding the islands. The Department of Interior estimates billions of barrels of oil are at stake.

The State Department has undertaken the giveaway in the guise of a maritime boundary agreement between Alaska and Siberia. Astoundingly, our federal government itself drew the line to put these seven Alaskan islands on the Russian side. But as an executive agreement, it could be reversed with the stroke of a pen by President Obama or Secretary Clinton. The agreement was negotiated in total secrecy. The state of Alaska was not allowed to participate in the negotiations, nor was the public given any opportunity for comment. This is despite the fact the Alaska Legislature has passed resolutions of opposition - but the State Department doesn't seem to care.

The imperiled Arctic Ocean islands include Wrangel, Bennett, Jeannette and Henrietta. Wrangel became American in 1881 with the landing of the U.S. Revenue Marine ship Thomas Corwin. The landing party included the famed naturalist John Muir. It is 3,000 square miles in size.

Northwest of Wrangel are the DeLong Islands, named for George Washington DeLong, the captain of USS Jeannette. Also in 1881, he discovered and claimed these three islands for the United States. He named them for the voyage co-sponsor, New York City newspaper publisher James Gordon Bennett. The ship's crew received a hero's welcome back in Washington, and Congress awarded them gold medals.

In the Bering Sea at the far west end of the Aleutian chain are Copper Island, Sea Lion Rock and Sea Otter Rock. They were ceded to the U.S. in Seward's 1867 treaty with Russia.

Now is the time for the Obama administration to stand up for U.S. and Alaskan rights and invaluable resources. The State Department's maritime agreement is a loser - it gives us nothing in return for giving up Alaska's sovereign territory and invaluable resources. We won the Cold War and should start acting like it. Also see Link 1,2 below

Lee Iacocca from Chrysler on America the Corporation

LEE IS BACK  and he is packing!

Remember Lee Iacocca, the man who  rescued Chrysler Corporation from its death throes? He's now 82 years old  and has a new book, 'Where Have All The Leaders Gone?'.

Lee Iacocca Says:  'Am I the only guy in  this country who's fed up with what's happening? Where the hell is our  outrage with this so called president? We should be screaming bloody  murder! We've got a gang of tax cheating clueless leftists trying to steer  our ship of state right over a cliff, we've got corporate gangsters  stealing us blind, and we can't even run a ridiculous cash-for-clunkers  program without losing $26 billion of the taxpayers' money, much less  build a hybrid car. But instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and  nods their heads when the politicians say, 'trust me, the economy is  getting better..' Better? You've got to be kidding. This is America , not  the damned 'Titanic'. I'll give you a sound bite: 'Throw all the Democrats  out, along with Obama!'

You might think  I'm getting senile, that I've gone off my rocker, and maybe I have. But  someone has to speak up. I hardly recognize this country anymore..

The most famous business leaders are not the  innovators but the guys in handcuffs.. While we're fiddling in Afghanistan  , Iran is completing their nuclear bombs and missiles and nobody seems to  know what to do. And the liberal press is waving 'pom-poms' instead of  asking hard questions. That's not the promise of the ' America ' my  parents and yours traveled across the ocean for. I've had enough. How  about you?

I'll go a step further. You  can't call yourself a patriot if you're not outraged. This is a fight I'm  ready and willing to have. The Biggest 'C' is Crisis! (Iacocca elaborates  on nine C's of leadership, with crisis being the first.)

Leaders are made, not born. Leadership is forged in  times of crisis. It's easy to sit there with thumb up your butt and talk  theory. Or send someone else's kids off to war when you've never seen a  battlefield yourself. It's another thing to lead when your world comes  tumbling down.

On September 11, 2001,  we needed a strong leader more than any other time in our history. We  needed a steady hand to guide us out of the ashes. A hell of a mess, so  here's where we stand.

We're immersed  in a bloody war now with no plan for winning and no plan for leaving.. But  our soldiers are dying daily.

We're  running the biggest deficit in the history of the world, and it's getting  worse every day!
We've lost the  manufacturing edge to Asia , while our once-great companies are getting  slaughtered by health care costs.

Gas  prices are going to skyrocket again, and nobody in power has a lucid plan to  open drilling to solve the problem. This country has the largest oil  reserves in the WORLD, and we cannot drill for it because the politicians  have been bought by the flea-hugging environmentalists.

Our borders are like  sieves and they want to give all illegal's amnesty and free  healthcare.

The middle class is being  squeezed to death every day.
These are  times that cry out for leadership.

But  when you look around, you've got to ask: 'Where have all the leaders  gone?' Where are the curious, creative communicators? Where are the people  of character, courage, conviction, omnipotence, and common sense? I may be  a sucker for alliteration,  but I think you get the point..

Name me  a leader who has a better idea for homeland security than making us take  off our shoes in airports and throw away our shampoo?

We've spent billions of dollars building a huge new  bureaucracy, and all we know how to do is react to things that have  already happened.

Everyone's hunkering  down, fingers crossed, hoping the government will make it better for them.  Now, that's just crazy.. Deal with life.

Name me an industry leader who is thinking creatively about how  we can restore our competitive edge in manufacturing. Who would have  believed that there could ever be a time when 'The Big Three' referred to  Japanese car companies? How did this happen, and more important, look what  Obama did about it!

Name me a  government leader who can articulate a plan for paying down the debt, or solving the energy crisis, or managing the health care problem. The  silence is deafening. But these are the crises that are eating away at our  country and milking the middle class dry.

I have news for the Chicago gangsters in Congress. We didn't  elect you to turn this country into a losing European Socialist state.  What is everybody so afraid of? That some bonehead on NBC or CNN news will  call them a name? Give me a break. Why don't you guys show some spine for  a change?

Had Enough? Hey, I'm not  trying to be the voice of gloom and doom here. I'm trying to light a fire.  I'm speaking out because I have hope - I believe in America .. In my  lifetime, I've had the privilege of living through some of America 's  greatest moments. I've also experienced some of our worst crises: The  'Great Depression,' 'World War II,' the 'Korean War,' the 'Kennedy  Assassination,' the 'Vietnam War,' the 1970's oil crisis, and the  struggles of recent years since 9/11.

Make your own contribution by sending this to everyone you know and care  about. It's our country, folks, and it's our future. Our future is at  stake!

"Fathom the hypocrisy of a  government that  requires  every   citizen  to  prove  they are  insured...but not everyone  must  prove  they  are a citizen."
