Great Maxine Analogy

I received this analogy in email and must admit that I agree.  I have no idea where it started or where the Maxine cartoon came from, but I hope you like it.

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


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 ...


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 ser vices; 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 our flag 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.
