In the Words of Maxine - - -

I don't usually get "political" in my blog - I've learned my lesson in the past. It seems that although everyone SAYS a blog is a place you can express yourself and say what you want to say - if you truly do that you can get crucified. But every once in awhile something comes across my desk that I feel very strongly about and feel that it's worth sharing. Maybe you have seen this before and maybe you haven't. If you have read it previously, it's worth another read as a good reminder. If you haven't read it before take it to heart and read the wisdom within. These are the words of Maxine - you know - the old gal from Hallmark? And with the current state of political affairs in the United States it's a good lesson that our politicians should take to heart.

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 .. 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 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 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 'Old Glory' 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 poop

Well, I don't know about you, but I'm getting tired of cleaning up the poop. So what's your opinion? I'd love to hear it.

Love, Lena

Bravo, Lena. Those are my thoughts exactly. It irritates the heck out of me that our attorney general and homeland security director (and probably the President) are criticizing the Arizona law without even having read it. There is an obvious political reason for that and I think it is pretty obvious to most people what it is. Don't be afraid to post, even if it is something we don't all agree with.

Amen, Sister! I'll add a little "Montana" to your story. MT doesn't have sales tax, but has enormous property taxes. So what happens is, homeowners like me support...pretty much the entire state. It gets so frustrating. Every time I turn around there's a new levy added to my property taxes. Just in the last two years they've been raised three times! The last two school levies failed miserably. I've said many times the homeowners of this state are just saturated. We can't take anymore. The people who own rental property can raise the rent they charge, but we're stuck paying more and more. Whenever I say that MT needs to get a sales tax, I'm almost mobbed. Montanans are VERY proud of the non sales tax thing. Sigh. I always hear "well at least YOU can afford to own your home." I now answer that with "barely!"

I live in a bastion of liberalism....As far as I can see the government wants people to feed off the government trough. I've had personal experience with exactly how easy it is for someone who is able bodied to get aid and hand outs. I'm tired of paying and paying and paying and up poop.
