I bought a bird feeder. I hung it on my back porch & lovingly filled it with delicious seeds.
What a beauty of a bird feeder it was.
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..
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 good intentions and limited budget.
Other birds became unruly, 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, free education and allows anyone born here to to be an automatic citizen.
Then the illegals came by the millions. Suddenly our taxes went up to pay for all those FREE services. Now we have to wait 6 hours to be seen by an emergency room doctor.
Our child's second grade class has fallen 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 waving flags other than 'Old Glory' are squawking and screaming in the streets, demanding more rights and more freebies.
Just my opinion, but maybe it's time for the government to take down the bird feeder.
Carl asks that, if you agree, pass it on, if not, then just continue cleaning up the bird crap.
