With all the unemployment , foreclosures , through the roof taxes ... this is what representatives are working on ? This is the top priority ? No , trashing the economy is the top , so this must be second ! Who ran for election on this issue or anything close to this ? Pigeons get representation and they can't even vote ! Oh wait ... I get it , we're the pigeons ! Maybe the pigeons should start shooting back before their completely defenseless ! "Save the people , tax a pigeon ". Fund raising for firehalls and other services by shooting a pigeon sounds like a good deal and two problems are taken care of at once , the taxpayers burden is eased and statues are happier !

I Attended Pigeon Shoots 55-60 Years Ago, The Pigeons Are Still Here. Seems They Were Faster Than The Shooters. The Laws Should Be Limiting The Length Of Time Politicians Can Be Stupid.
