  1. Food For Thought !

    I bought a bird feeder. I hung it on my back porch and filled it 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...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. 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...quite, 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, 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 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 our own are squawking and screaming in the streets, demanding more rights and free liberties.

    Maybe it's time for the government to take down the bird feeder.
  2. Well it started well, I thought it was going to be a post about how you redecorated you back garden "in an interesting new colour called hint of (bird) brain" with both barrels of a berretta. Then it got political................
  3. Made me think of bean stealing pads in the cookhouse.
  4. Made me think of Spare Rib stealing singlies that keep coming to my BBQ's but thats out of my pocket not the army's so wind it in fatty.
  5. Great analogy ................. spot on !!!!!!!
  6. No-one should be feeding garden birds after mid-April latest, and they should have stopped two weeks earlier this year.

    Typical bird-feeder foods have insufficient calcium and protein for nesting, egg-laying, breeding birds. They need plenty of protein-rich worms, flies, insect larvae at this time of year.

    As for the human politics - another thread, perhaps? Interesting topic . . . . .
  7. Cant see why, good enough here
  8. Hey, why don't you start a new thread? You might rack up another 2 thousand posts in 2 months......
  9. How about luring all the birds to one tree previously rigged with bags of petrol ready to blow. At the right moment, boom, instant bird BBQ. Works for quelias. If you play your cards right you can nail a couple hundred thou in one hit. Allegedly.
  10. Old Pad problem eh only two hands and one mouth? Sorry would you like a chair for the wife and kids as well?
