    Taking down the bird feeder! To many freeloader liberal birds.

    Taking down the bird feeder!
    What a great analogy!
    THIS IS THE BEST MAXINE EVER!

    Leave it to Maxine to come up with a solution for the mess that America is now in economically.

    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 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 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 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 'Old Glory' are
    squawking and screaming
    in the streets, demanding
