Birds of a feather flock together

bought a bird feeder. I hung it on my back porch and filled it with

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.

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 lets see....... our government gives out free food, subsidised
housing, free medical care, 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.

Maybe it's time for the government to take down the bird feeder.
