This is a great analogy except that the attraction of free seeds to birds is like nothing compared with the attraction of what must seem a veritable King's Ransom to destitute denizens of the Congo, Somalia and Mali etc.
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 tiles, the chairs, and 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 illegal's came by the Tens of thousands. Suddenly our taxes went up to pay for free services; small apartments are housing 5 families;
I have to ‘press one ' to hear my bank talk to me in English, and people waving flags other than ‘The Maple Leaf’ 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, just continue cleaning up the poop
