Food for Thought

Food for thought!!!

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
Then came the crap. 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...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 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:
I have to press "one" to hear my bank talk to me in English, and people
waving flags other than our maple leaf 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.
