Cleaning up the _OO_!

I have a favorite website, Fellowship of the Minds. This gem was posted recently:

"Taking Down The Bird Feeder. Leave It To Maxine."
Just have to luv Maxine. This is the best analogy yet!

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
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

Then the illegals came by the tens of thousands. Suddenly our taxes went up to
pay for free services; small apartments are housing five families; you have to wait six
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 more rights and free

Just my opinion, but maybe it’s time for the government to take down the bird

If you agree, pass it on; if not, just continue cleaning up the poop.
