I wish I could take credit, but I didn’t write it…
The Bird Feeder
A man bought a bird feeder. He hung it on his back porch and filled it with seed. Within a week he 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 his 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 the man and try to peck him even though he 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 he fill it when it got low on food.
After a while, the man couldn’t even sit on his own back porch anymore.
Well, the man took down the bird feeder and in three days the birds were gone.
He 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 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 our government to take down the bird feeder …
