Some of my favorite students from when I was teaching were members of my adult education classes where I taught introductory computer courses. Ergo, some of the best of my emails that I get come from some of these students. The more thought provoking of them I put here. This is one of them.
Now folks, before you get all bent out of shape again, let me remind you this is from an email I got, he said, remembering the Cinco de Mayo email incident. Ahem.
This is so well put.
I am sending it to EVERYONE. and hope you will do the same.
ESPECIALLY YOUR SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES. They need to be reminded WE VOTED THEM IN and WE PAY THEIR WAY. Way not wages because wages are EARNED.
This needs to keep circulating.....we must not forget the burden of these
unwanted tax dependents.
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 a 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 "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.
