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 was, 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 other 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
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 second 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 the "Stars and Stripes" 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.

As a person who put out the bird feeder to stop them raiding my gardens........I can relate.

It's a brilliant analogy.

There are just too many poor immigrants that want to come to America. The illegals from Latin America give you a double whammy due to their enormous birth rates after they arrive. Its downright abusive we have to tolerate it due to PC.

Who says we have to? Oh yeah, that's right. We're racist if we don't.

garbage analogy.

there was no recipricol relation between the feeder and the birds, whereas in the US there is a recipricol relation between the US and illegals (low wage labor).

people are not like birds.
people actually work.

garbage analogy.
make the birds handy men, or janitors and factory workers, then maybe the analogy might work...

You didn't know that Maxine was against illegal immigration?

Maybe I'll start a thread for Maxine cartoons critcizing illegal immigration and the US Govenment.
