Default 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 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. 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...quite, 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 be an
automatic citizen. Then the illegal's 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 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 free liberties...

Maybe it's time for the government to take down the bird feeder.
