Out of my inbox to all of my American readers

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...... quiet, serene and no one demanding their rights to a free
meal.
Now lets 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 comes 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. Maybe it's time for the government to take down the bird
feeder.

I'm reading this, thinking, wow! I never had that problem with my bird feeders. Then, I got it.
