    I bought a bird feeder...

    I bought a bird feeder.

    I hung it on my back porch and filled

    it with seed. What a beauty of a bird feeder it is, as I filled it

    lovingly with seed. Within a week we had hundreds of birds

    taking advantage of the continuous flow of free and

    easily accessible food.

    But then the birds started building nests in the boards

    of the patio, above the table, and next to the barbecue.

    Then came the poop. It was everywhere: on the patio tile,

    the chairs, the table. everywhere!

    Then some of the birds turned mean. They would

    dive bomb me and try to peck me even though I had

    fed them out of my own pocket.

    And others birds were boisterous and loud. They

    sat on the feeder and squawked and screamed at

    all hours of the day and night and demanded that I fill it

    when it got low on food.

    After a while, I couldn't even sit on my own back porch

    anymore. So I took down the bird feeder and in three days

    the birds were gone. I cleaned up their mess and took down

    the many nests they had built all over the patio.

    Soon, the back yard was like it used to be.... quiet, serene

    and no one demanding their rights to a free meal.

    Now let's see.

    Our government gives out free food, subsidized housing,

    free medical care, and free education and allows anyone

    born here to be an automatic citizen.

    Then the illegals came by the tens of thousands. Suddenly

    our taxes went up to pay for free services; small apartments

    are housing 5 families; you have to wait 6 hours to be seen

    by an emergency room doctor; your child's 2nd grade class is

    behind other schools because over half the class doesn't speak


    Corn Flakes now come in a bilingual box; I have to

    "press one" to hear my bank talk to me in English, and

    people waving flags other than "Old Glory" are

    squawking and screaming in the streets, demanding

    more rights and free liberties.

    Just my opinion, but maybe it's time for the government

    to take down the bird feeder. If you agree, pass it on; if not,

    continue cleaning up the poop.

    Great analogy....Except Our government isn't smart enough to remove the feeder...It will most likely bring in some stray cats to minimize the bird population...which will multiply the cat population and sooner or later the cats won't work at keeping the bird population in check....and we will have even more mouths to feed....

    I think they are plenty smart enough. They just don't want to because everyone at the top (be they elephant or donkey) makes too much money from the cheap labor.
