    Take Down The Bird Feeder!

    MY LATEST 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 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 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, continue cleaning up the poop.

    Keep you BS chainletters where they belong.

    Just put it up in someone else's yard, then it is charity.

    I put it where it belonged... inside your head.

    Pavlov would be proud.

    Ever seen a sign in a national park (or elsewhere) that says "Don't feed the animals"?


    You know why they don't want you to feed the animals? Because, they'll get used to people feeding them and they will lose their ability to forage for natural foods and become dependent on people. Also, animals that expect to be fed by people can become aggressive and will harass people for food when they are hungry.



    True story.

    Unfortunately, if you "took down the bird feeder" you would most likely see these "birds" start to "turn to crime" to cover their addictive habits rather than get up early and snag a lowly worm.

    +1

    I'd like to see the bird feeder redesigned, but taking it down all together spells for disaster.

    Sadly, mankind has forgotton it's just another Animal in the middle of a long line of extinctions. What folly the ego of man, to think the rules of nature do not apply to him.

    this thread makes me think of the old adage:

    give a man a fish, he eats for a day; teach a man to fish he can feed himself for the rest of his life. Not to mention he can teach others to fish and what not.

    I always thought immigrants came here for freedom and opportunity. I guess if we got rid of both they would stop coming. I never bought the Cracker Jacks for the toy I just like Craker Jacks.

    can some one try explain to me who the birds are in real terms?

    Individual welfare? Corporate welfare? Foreign welfare?

    Also don't confuse a hand out and a tax break because they could be the same thing.

    How big of a bird are big box corporations that get lifetime tax exemptions from municipalities?
