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 was, 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 shit. 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
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.
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 second 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 ours 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.
