Bird Feeder Theory of Life . . .

I got this in an email:

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.

AMEN !!!

Everyday on my way into work I pass my county's Social Services building. I have noticed that there are several people that are standing outside that have been there week after week, year after year getting their hand outs.

Most of these people appear able to work, but decide not to. Why should they work when they can get welfare, assistance for reduced / no rent etc. and live 'free' on the taxpayer's $$$$$ ???

I hate birdfeeders and birds and all the trouble they cause.

Just the other day I looked out my window and saw two mexicans taking a poop on the hood of my car.

AND I HAD JUST WASHED IT!

It was sent to me in an email, so I am pretty sure it's seen a few inboxes.
