Best of Maxine

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...
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
Then the illegal's 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 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,
just continue cleaning up the poop.

Hey, idiot anonymous. Maybe you would like to conncct Maxine to a Jesus saying which if you ever read and UNDERSTOOD the Bible, Jesus never encouraged his disciples to sit around on there asses. He said put your asses to WORK. Better run this Maxine saying by your Master Obama first to see if he understood what Jesus said.

Right, "bird feeders" started several failed generations ago and continue to feed off the government dole. They learn how to avoid work while collecting benefits from those who earn them.

It's called Socialism or worse and the shrewd ones know how to position themselves and their feeders.

Yes, I am compassionate and agree with Democrats, Independents and Republicans that kids should learn to "work" like making their own rooms relatively neat, hanging up their clothes, helping do the dishes, laundry, etc., and generally helping around the house, yards, gardens where they live, long before they are 14. I grew up on a farm and learned to do chores, again, long before I was 14.

I have also donated over $500,000 to causes and people I believed in need.

Some of you anony claim to be much smarter than I. Where is the proof? It sure is not in the comments you write and expect me to post. And you sure don't want ANBODY TO KNOW YOUR NAMES.
