The "Bird" Feeder

I bought a bird feeder. I hung it on my back porch and filled it with seed. Within a week we had hundreds of birds taking advantage of the continuous flow of free and 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 even though I have fed them out of my own pocket. Other birds were boisterous and loud. They sat on the feeder and squawked and screamed demanding that I fill it when it got low on food. After a while, I couldn't even sit on my own back porch anymore. I took down the bird feeder 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 lets see...our government gives out free food, subsidized housing, free medical care, 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 five families. You have to wait 6 hours to be seen by an ER doctor. Your child's 2nd grade class is behind other schools because over half the class doesn't speak English. Corn Flakes now come in a bilingual box. I have to press "one" to hear my bank talk to me in English, and people wave flags other than "Old Glory" are squawking and screaming in the streets, demanding more rights and free liberties.

Maybe it's time for the government to take down the "bird" feeder!?
