The Cost of Complacency Can Leave You Trapped

Nothing paints a better picture than this story from the world of agriculture. In the April 15, 2010 edition of Texas Agriculture Talks, Publisher Gene Hall uses a story about catching wild hogs as an analogy for how easy it is to let down your guard when the bait is tempting. The verbal telling of the story is originally credited to Hall's friend and colleague, Si Cook. Titled, "The Cost of Free Corn," the story warns of how complacency toward entitlement programs can one day leave you trapped. I encourage you to read it.
