A Sad Parallel...

I bought a bird feeder. I hung it on my back porch and filled it 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. 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, free education and allows anyone born here to be a automatic 
citizen. Then the illegals came by the tens of thousands. Suddenly our taxes 
went up to pay for free services; small apartments house five families: you 
have to wait 6 hours to be seen by an emergency room doctor: you 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" squawk and scream in the streets, demanding more rights 
and free liberties.

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