A great analogy..

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Haven't heard it put this way before, but it's a great analogy.


    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 is 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 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 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.

    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 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 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.

    If you agree, pass it on; if not, continue cleaning up the shit!

    The hair cut

    One day a florist goes to a barber for a haircut. After the cut he
    asked about his bill and the barber replies, 'I cannot accept money
    from you. I'm doing community service this week.' The florist was
    pleased and left the shop.

    When the barber goes to open his shop the next morning there is a
    'thank you' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door...

    Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his
    bill, the barber again replies, 'I cannot accept money from you. I'm
    doing community service this week.' The cop is happy and leaves the
    shop.

    The next morning when the barber goes to open up there is a 'thank
    you' card and a dozen doughnuts waiting for him at his door.

    Later that day, a college professor comes in for a haircut, and when
    he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replies, 'I cannot accept
    money from you. I'm doing community service this week.' The professor
    is very happy and leaves the shop.

    The next morning when the barber opens his shop, there is a 'thank
    you' card and a dozen different books, such as 'How to Improve
    Your Business' and 'Becoming More Successful.'

    Then, a Member of Parliament comes in for a haircut , and when he goes
    to pay his bill the barber again replies, 'I cannot accept money from
    you. I'm doing community service this week.' The Member of Parliament
    is very happy and leaves the shop.

    The next morning when the barber goes to open up, there are a dozen
    Members of Parliament lined up waiting for a free haircut.

    And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between
    the citizens of our country and the Members of Parliament.
     
  3. Yep.
     
  4. Taking the bird-feeder one step further, just maybe we should stop providing so much support for our own home bred low life scum and single mothers! Holland seems to have very little problem with underage mothers.............. just maybe because they will not pay them!!
