Maxine Says: Take Down the Bird Feeder!

Take Down the Bird Feeder

       The analogy is absolutely right on . . .
Maxine tells it like it is!!!!

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, 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 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!

According to a 2016 report from the Government Accountability Office, more than 23,000 active-duty troops used the food stamp program in 2013, the last year for which such information was available.

I love the idea this cartoon portrays, but I personally think the "bird feeder" has been up too long. It's going to take a little more effort now.

This could be the first step in a coming implosion caused by a number of factors that have resulted in a vast majority of the wealth held by just a small minority. A culture of fear is brewing has been stoked by two wars, a huge amount of labor being outsourced and too much control wielded by large corporates. Oh, and we have a non-white president. First the "illegals".....

"They came first for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for me and by that time no one was left to speak up."

PS Niemöller forgot to mention the Gypsies and homosexuals

Tis is the libertarian solution to "illegal" immigration: Eliminate the freebies not just for illegals, but for everyone. The thieving must (and will) stop.
