Joke - Cleaning the shit.

Bedlam - humour.

Jack Chambers has sent me another humorous piece. Haven't heard it put this way before, but it's a great analogy. If you enjoy the post, please vote it up on Stumble, Digg or any other Social Bookmark service you use.

I bought a bird feeder. I hung it on my back patio and filled it with seed. What a beauty of a bird feeder it was. 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 other birds were boisterous and loud.. They sat on the feeder and squawked and screamed at all hours of the day demanding that I fill it when it got low on food.

After a while, I couldn't even sit in my own back garden 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. A terrific social system.

Then the illegal immigrants streamed in by hundreds of thousands. Suddenly our taxes went up to pay for THEIR 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 2nd 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 the British 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 shit!

Thanks for that contribution Jack. Some great principles there.
