The Bird Feeder

We all have our own problems, some are worse (or better) than others.

Having already mentioned that we all have problems.... some "fws" deserve to be
kept alive, the following is one of those.


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 other 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 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

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 our national flag 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.

If you agree, pass it on;

if not, continue cleaning up the poop!

Yeah, makes sense to me too. But what happens if many of those birds now have garnered a right to vote. So now the politicans have to consider what the birds might want too. Ay, there's the rub.

Liked your Halloween witch. Alas, none resembling her showed up on my doorstep to trick or treat last night.

I think what we got are borders without edges. Or borders without borders.

Blame the politicians...it's their fault. I do agree, too.
