Squirrels

I happened to be in the local park yesterday afternoon. Squirrels were everywhere. We have squirrels on our homestead and they are usually well behaved. They raid the bird feeders for corn and sunflower seeds. At the park, however, they were rather brazen about getting in your face.

A passing lady told me they were expecting to be fed. She said popcorn and peanuts were their favorites. But I reminded here that there were several signs that said Do Not Feed the Squirrels all over the park.

She laughed and said no one follows the rules. So I asked why they made the rule in the first place. She told me that if you feed them they will loose the skill to feed themselves.

I casually remarked that it reminded me of welfare. We keep giving welfare to women whose grandmothers were on welfare, whose mothers and aunts are on welfare. And whose daughters and nieces will be on welfare. They have lost the skill to fend for themselves.

The kind old lady gave me a Fuck Off look and walked away.
