Where Are the Deadbeat Unsocial Weavers?

Home - by - February 26, 2013 - 00:45 America/New_York - 22 Comments

Progtards are forever insisting that their communist dreams can work, and they routinely turn to nature to substantiate their claims.

Read this blurb -

“Sociable weavers are build communal nests in the desert. Often, nature and wildlife give us clues on how we can live in harmony with others. A bird species known as sociable weavers are known to create massive, visually appealing nests in the Kalahari Desert in South Africa. The nests resemble haystacks and they are comprised of twigs, straw, grass and other natural elements. The insides are covered in cotton, fur or other soft material that the birds can find.” — geobeats

Uh huh. Let’s watch, and then disseminate.

    People and birds are not similar or compatible, and this “learning from nature” shit is just that, shit.
    If birds start building condos I’ll be impressed. Until then keep wanking to rainbows and wearing sandals in the winter.

    The next time I have a hankering to live in a “visually appealing” oversized fur coat tossed into a tree, I’ll give them a call.

    Actually, the problem here is one of labor, effort, and money. Birds have none. They just do what they do. They don’t need money to buy building materials; those are just found anywhere and any animal is welcome to make what they want out of them. In this case the birds make living quarters from them. The birds do put forth labor and effort (but they don’t know that) and I would be willing to bet that some birds do more than others. But they don’t care. All they know is that if they DON’T build a nest, they die. So they do.

    Humans have changed from nomads roaming around the veld, gathering nuts and berries or hunting for food, into a civilized society were everyone is supposed to follow the laws. If some other person chops down trees and turns the lumber into 2x4s and other building materials, I can’t just walk over and pick up what I need like the birds can. I have to pay for those materials because the lumberjack has expended effort and labor and is entitled to be reimbursed. And likewise, if I don’t do the work, I have to PAY someone to do it for me. Or, someone builds houses and hopes that other people want to buy them. The building contractor is entitled to be reimbursed for his effort and labor. As are any workmen he hires.

    You can see that using reason, logic, and common sense destroys the folly of socialism.

    Well, I got curious and checked into the behavior of these birds and found some traits that might explain what progressives might have in common with these birds other than brain capacity:

    Male and female appear identical

    Allopreening and water bathing are very rare in this species

    God gave man dominion over the animals, and didn’t give them free will…He gave them, INSTINCTS for self-preservation…which is why libtards want God out of every thing, with God out the picture, free will becomes an excuse for hedonism and absolves them of responsibility…these nests are pretty cool, though!

    No thanks. I believe the reason I never fathered any children is because I disseminated too much when I was young.

    I am able to P all over it, though.

    I say we take a cue from box turtles. Everyone do your own thing, leave everyone else alone unless they get too close (then bite them), and only have social contact during mating.

    You can pick and choose your natural example, that’s mine.

    Did any one notice the pile of “visually appealing nest” to the right under that tree? Thats the Weaver birds Detriot.

    I wonder how cooperative these birds are when food & or water become scare? Think they share mates with each other? Dollar to donuts that within the weaver bird community there are locations that are more desirable (like maybe in the center where the bird is less likely to be flooded out or have their portion of the nest blow out of the tree or be preyed upon, and what weaver bird wants to be nesting next to an owl). So how do you think the weaver birds figure out who gets the prime locations? I’d bet its not by “from those according to their ability to each according to his need.” No I expect the stronger, most aggressive bird that is able to claim and defend both territory and mate are the ones with the prime real estate.

    Funny that’s starting to sound like competition and reward going to the successful doesn’t it? Nature’s a bitch leftards, you should spend more time in it.

    Perfect for the occupy crowd. Add a contengent of Bloods and Grips just to keep the flock in line and thinned out.

    Only a progressive would admire that giant rats’ nest.

    Admit it, who here, if you saw that monstrosity in a tree in your yard, wouldn’t get a rake, a broom and a leaf blower to eliminate it ASAP ?!

    That bizarro tree trash is a metaphor for our federal government.

    In the still frame above you can see where a large portion of “Utopia” has fallen to the ground. I’ll bet hundreds of baby birds and eggs were eaten by insects and predators when that happened – not to mention the adults trapped underneath it.

    It’s a nice analogy for communism after all.

    It appears that the host is somewhat burdened by the ravages of the parasites.

    It’s not being killed, because parasites usually don’t kill their hosts, but at some point seem to suck the lifeblood out of the host.
