"The Birdfeeder"  
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 shit. 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. Suddenl your 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 speakEnglish.  
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 "ours" 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 shit!
   "The American's Creed" 
     by: William Tyler Page 
I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed, a democracy in a republic, a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. 
I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies. 
–Written 1917, accepted by the United States House of Representatives on April 3, 1918.
