Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It's learning to look past life's imperfections

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 citizen.
Then the illegals 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 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.


  1. YES! Take it away! Without it, lets see if we even need to close the borders? Got company coming soon. Just have to get the photo album set up. Have fun with the girls!
