It’s time to take away the birdfeeder.

This article hits the nail on the head. Never before have I had it put in this context. Beautifully put!


A funny parallel…

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

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 a 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 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 and clean up the mess.
