Taking down the bird feeder
This is the best analogy yet For the mess that America is now in economically.

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 was, 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 illegal's 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 second 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.
If you agree, pass it on; if not,
Just continue cleaning up the poop.

    Rome was a republic for only 300 years. After they started tax & regulated to the max Rome received money to pay for the bird food by conquered and stole from all the people around them, when they could not tax and steel any more, they defaced the money. Then while they were week, they were conquered,

    Rome's history doesn't matter.... Hopefully we've advanced past that..... No weapons in football. That's an improvement over the arena but the way societies is handling things more and more cowardly, I'm sure we gonna git some guns in that one.

    It is a great analogy and holds true for almost everything.

    I knew we were in trouble when the MAC said for English press 1. INS now known as Homeland Security should be scrutinized thouroughly and cleaned up! Call 'em up,-they got foreigners working there too! Border patrols? Other nations man theirs with machine guns! "Oh they do the work we don't wanna do",-so cry the liberals. We got millions of lazy teen age and college kids sleeping till noon and laying out on beaches all day while Momsie Popsie kill themselves;- then in the fall they will get student grants and loans to obtain an "education" on how to destroy America,hate God & kill your mistake. The loans for many are defaulted on. They get a piece of paper stating "you are somebody" and expect to get a professional job with tons of money rolling in and refuse to start at the bottom and work up;- they are still dependant upon Momsie Popsie!

    While anyone with a heart has to agree we must help others to a certain extent. But if ya ain't go no papers you ain't gettin' nothing but a path back to where you belong. I wish someone would have the strength to take down the birdfeeder in this country.

    Nice analogy. BUT.
    There are millions of highly educated (many from US colleges) scientists, doctors, IT types that want to come to the US and would help tremendously. There are many other hard working types that do jobs that Americans don't want and they try to adapt and fit in. I think that it is a matter of good, intelligent, immigration laws that welcomes people who add to the country.

    I'm 100% supporter of legal immigration by professional people.Who are willing to go through the proper channels to become naturalized Americans.

    But with this current administration,the illegals & 3rd world,uneducated types seem to be the ones getting to the head of the line.Along with too many Hamas-loving Muslims from Palestine!
