Then there is the story of the Bear who took all the fish from the river. He didn't care about anybody but himself. Who cares what other people do or say. I just want all the fish because I've earned it. In fact, why should they have any fish? Then the bear met another animal that ate all the fruit from the fruit trees. Oh, they spent their time having so much fun eating all the food and laughing at all the people who didn't have what they had. They soon found a few other friends that gorged on everything in site. One became a dictator in a communist country, another became an investment banker and all the others just became corrupt. They loved their slogan: "As long as I have mine, who cares about the rest. We earned ours."

I don't eat pork: Web Link

I don't tons of meat, however, I enjoy fish - squid, octopus, eel, and fresh fish fillets. I feel sorry for animals. They are so kind.

Being corrupt isn't something that anyone can do. It takes skill. Just take a look at the unemployment lines. Obviously their parents didn't teach them how to take candy from babies.

Too bad the younger generations will never know what is was like to be wild pigs(free). We are already fenced in on three sides. One Bay Area will be the last fence with only the trap door remaining.
