    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 is 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 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. 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.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Now let's see . . 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 six 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.

    Just my opinion, but maybe it's time for the government to take down the bird feeder.[beer]

    Yup take down the feeder and elimenate a LOT of problems, especialy when it sems like its already near impossible for the ones the 'feeder' was actualy put up for to get to it any way.

    I know you se all these folks, be it illegals or just lazy folks that dont want to work setting back collecting disability and welfare but then just like one of the guys I was talking to the other day is haveing to look at getting a devorce so he can get medical care and a small check because his wife makes just over minimum wage working as a CNA and he is doing better than the Drs figured he would since with crutches he can kind of walk sometimes now rather than being in a wheel chair full time. Then you have the olks that are 'disabled' because they are drunk or whatever and they get a everything they want handed over.

    Figure when it causes all the troubles it dose AND dont even get to the ones its itended for its time to scrap the idea. Kind of like putting up the feeder for the pretty song birds and the pigions chase them off and swarm it while craping on everything.

    Don't forget the pigs at the trough, I would imagine this accounts for just as much wasteful spending.
