Food for thought.......

A great email sent to me by the EG. I keep telling her to post on her own blog, but sadly, she is a blog slacker.

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 shit. 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, 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 or 6 families; you have to wait 6 or 8 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 the ours 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. ..

ain't that the truth.

that first part described, reminded me of those caught in hurricane katrina- and how they made a mess- lived in government housing - crapped up their surroundings then demanded better from the government without lifting a damn finger themselves...why should they, they never had to lift a finger or help themselves before?...
yeah, yeah, i'm racists...whatever.
i am not- it's the truth and speaking the truth against people of any color black white purple or green does not make me a racist.

it's the truth and this story clearly and plainly illustrates the truth so even the youngest of children or the dumbest of Americans can understand it.

Amen. Love this. And I love what Pedaling said. Of course, you already knew I would.
