If you are not a farmer or have never lived near a farm you may have some trouble believing this but most of the educated people here will understand it before it finishes. Try to read it clear through to see if it is funny or completely serious.

Excellent analogy of our nation's de-volution.

I've heard the story before, but I think it was with cows.

From the point of view of the farmer, catching feral pigs is necessary for the safety of the farm, but others may read it differently.

So Roy are you saying people on welfare and other government handouts
are pigs?

Thought I'd throw that out there before our liberal friends beat it to death.

Just another reason to read animal farm.

It is an excellent example of what that thing in NYC is all about. Somehow I hope none of those who don't like this bit of truth have to see what happens from the revolution that many of them want. I wonder if any of them have any idea that only one revolution in the history of the world ended peacefully. It was, of course, the American Revolution and none of the others resulted in anything short of murder for years.

The ranchers around here wouldn't try to catch the wild boars around. They all carry weapons all the time and shoot them, no matter what. Those things are very dangerous and even women carry weapons when running around the home place,

I wonder if they read Animal Farm in schools any longer. I bet they don't since it is not the kind of story libs want people to know.
