The Migratory Bird Act of 1918

The centennial anniversary (is that a redundancy? I don't know) of the Migratory Bird Act of 1918 is in three short years! This is the act that protects the odious Canada geese that live on the street where I work, and in the parking lot, year-round. My idea is that, in celebration of this anniversary, we remove the non-migratory (is it the greater or lesser?) Canada goose from this protection act, so that we can get rid of the nuisances.

I don't hate the birds, really I don't. They're really cool when they're flying. It's just that when they know about the protection act, and so they don't feel obligated to be, you know, scared when I walk up on them on the sidewalk or something. And they peck at my hands, nasty beasts, and hiss.

Let them be proper afraid animals again!
