  • Take Down the Birdfeeder!!!

    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 illegal 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!

    Sometimes I wonder if I could live my entire life being the neutral, all observant being. The gray man. We’ll see.

      We had feral cats in the neighborhood that kept the birds from becoming uppity. But then the cats multiplied & they had to be trapped and removed. I'll pass this on to my wife.

              Very well said and sadly very true. My neices are in the Asheboro City School, in some of their classes they are out numbered 3 to 1.

                    Near the end of the post, I thought, "I'm going to have to ask Lo if I can
                    borrow this and post it on another website"

                    Definitely worth distributing! ;)

                      That's simply awesome. Thank you for that post. I'm sending that to my e-mail contacts, as well as making it a bulletin in MySpace.

                        Good post Lo... great analogy:)


                        Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to
                        beat you to death with it because it is empty.
