Free corn, anyone?

One day during chemistry lab at a large college, 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 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 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 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. Then you simply 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 become so used to it that they forget how to forage in the woods for themselves and accept their captivity."
The young man then told the professor that this is exactly what he sees happening to America.

The government keeps pushing its citizens toward socialism by spreading the free corn out in the form of government programs such as supplemental income tax credit for unearned income, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare, medicine, drug programs, "free healthcare" proposals and more, all while Americans continue to slowly lose freedoms... just a little at a time.

Why should Americans have to forage for themselves in the forest when there's free corn to be had? Why? Well because there is no such thing as a free lunch. No politician can ever provide a service for you cheaper than you can procure it for yourself.

If you view all of this "free corn" as a problem confronting the future of democracy in America, you might want to send this secret to catching wild pigs on to your friends to warn them. If you think you are entitled to the "free corn" and it has become essential to your way of life, then God help you when the gate slams shut. God help us all.

In this important election year, listen closely to what the candidates are promising you. If you listen closely enough, you just might be able to tell who is about to slam the gate shut on your free-corn-eating arse and on the American way of life, on your independence and your freedom.

Thomas Jefferson said it best: "A government big enough to give you everything, is
big enough to take away everything you have." Amen to that, brother!

Ninja Convention

I'm sorry. I know this isn't even remotely political but I laughed myself silly and felt a need to share...

(Thanks for providing the big laugh of the day, Kevin!)

"Gay for Obama"

Okay, I'm obviously very, very far behind on my internet gossip as I have just now seen the Larry Sinclair video which was big gossip news online toward the beginning of this year and for months afterward. From what I gather via browsing print press online, Sinclair appears to have failed a polygraph administered to him.

ConservaChick's official line on any and all gay rumors applies here as much as anywhere else:
Who cares? Not I.

Here's the real reason behind the title of this particular post -- I ran across an amusing video called "Gay for Obama" on YouTube today. I would guess it was sparked by the Sinclair business since it was posted to YouTube back in March. At any rate, it's a freakin' riot! Enjoy!

(Oh, PS and for the record: He was NOT "right about Iraq.")

Rewarding Failure

Incredible, absolutely freakin' INCREDIBLE!

Evidently, Republicans on The Hill don't think their base is paying attention out here. We are. Here's just a partial list of the Conservatives (read "not necessarily Republicans anymore") who are all eyes on this one: Freedom Works, AngryRenters, OpenMarkets, and many, many others.

So while we watch Congress continue to make economic matters worse, let's put things in perspective, courtesy of Angry Renter.

Corporate welfare has never been a good idea in my book. Darwinian of me, I suppose, but allowing the unintended effects of legislative tinkering with a "free" market to put us back on the proper track (albeit painfully) is intellectually the honest thing to do.

If "Bob" in the above video didn't realize the risk he was taking when he took out that ARM on a house he couldn't afford in the first place, I'd be willing to bet Bob is a much smarter consumer now. Uh... well, he might be... but then again, Bob should probably feel free to be as stupid as he likes. He'll have the Nanny State (read you and I) to come to his rescue again.

I Love those Commies!

The comrades at The People's Cube just keep on gettin' it right and making me laugh! I know they're atheists but God bless 'em. I hope they keep up their hard work "for the common good" for years and years to come!

If you need a good hearty laugh or ten, read "Iran's Mullahs Photoshop a Missile!"

Tired of the constant barrage of "news" from the cult of Global Warming? Read "Drill ANBAR" for some alternative "news." hehehe

And, last but not least, if you've noticed lately that BO seems to be changing his tune on issues since Hillary conceded the primary, you're not alone. Read all about Barack's Evil Twin for some enlightenment.

PLEASE NOTE: If ConservaChick is dragged off in the night for liberally borrowing graphics from The People's Cube, please continue to enjoy their work. Even while making little ice cubes out of big ones in Siberia, I'll still shout, "They rock!"

No, it's not your imagination...

these gas prices *are* gonna kill ya! ;o)

From the email release I received about this site, it would appear that some smart and talented people have decided to get serious about one of our biggest national security risks by using comedy to raise awareness. Nice!
NozzleRage: America's Humorous Antidote to Fuming at the Gas Pump

Every American is getting hosed. Each time we fill up our gas tanks, we are putting money into the hands of OPEC - the oil cartel led by Saudi Arabia. The Saudis and the other countries that make up that monopoly control most of the world's reserves. Most of them pay just a couple of dollars per barrel to get oil out of the ground.

Yet, OPEC is limiting production and encouraging speculation that is costing us and other consumers hundreds of billions of dollars every year. It amounts to the largest artificially engineered transfer of wealth in history. OPEC is waging economic warfare, and it is bleeding our country dry.

Worse still, some of the oil money the Saudis, Iranians, Venezuelans and other OPEC members get from us is being used to support terrorism. We are literally paying people to try to kill us.

Bearing Arms... ain't just for Florida anymore! Washington D.C., welcome to the United States of America!

Congratulations to the Supreme Court for managing to find four highly-educated people who still have no grasp on the US Constitution. No one puts it any better than Ted Nugent -- one of the most colorful and eloquent Second Amendment activists -- in his piece, "DC Gun Ban Blown Away," on Human Events.
[...] "Just as we wouldn't need confirmation that our choice of religion is indeed an individual right, or that we could possibly need a government permit to express our individual thoughts in speech, good Americans will continue to fight for the return of our sacred 2nd Amendment rights where someday soon we will not need a government issued license to keep and bear arms. After all, from the supreme court of common sense on the not so mean streets of America, everybody I know understands clearly that 'keep' means one thing and one thing only: 'It's mine and you can't have it.' We know without question that 'bear' can only mean, 'Yes, I have it right here in my hands or within instant grasp,' nothing more and nothing less. And dare I explain 'shall not be infringed?' I hope not." [...]
As always, well said, Ted!

Illuminati TV on Obama and the Dems

We've all read and likely heard the "rumors" about Barack Hussein Obama, the Democrats' presumptive nominee for the 2008 Presidential election. I ran across a nifty little video (in two parts) on YouTube -- from the man who invented the internet! -- that really must be shared in an effort to edify the American voting population. Enjoy!

Obama's Speech Writers

Even we Conservatives must admit that Barack Obama can certainly give a rousing speech. The problem appears to be that he just can't seem to settle on one creative mastermind to write those speeches.

I hear that he just fired these two speech writers...

...and has since hired this one.

I don't know about you but I'm certainly looking forward to BO's next speech!
