      That poor honey bee is pretty raggedy. Look at her wing. It’s all shredded. The honey bees are like machines that run themselves into the ground. I pity their ferocious work ethic. I’m more like the grasshopper of the fable.

          The life force is a remarkable power. I on the other hand am controlled by the laziness gene. Different trajectory. But I like to think we’re all God’s children.

    Hives (bees, wasps, ants) are the ultimate (and only successful) communists.

      Are you calling Bernie unsuccessful? He has three hives, I mean homes, you know.

    Bernie is a fake commie. Like all other liberals, he wants to control other people and leave his fortune alone. Even in Russia, in Stalin’s days, the commie bigwigs had dachas on the Black Sea while the comrades lived ten to a flat in Moscow. Communism is merely substituting one set of rulers for another. Instead of kings and barons and lords you have various “party” officials. Same thing, different name. Communism (and socialism) is just rebranded tyranny. If the Democrats seize both houses of congress and the presidency, you’ll see more or less the same thing here. That’s about the time the shooting will start.

      That’s why I think Trump is like a miracle. Probably a short term phenomenon but maybe long enough to wake up everyone who still has two brain cells left. Maybe it’s too late but we have to find out.

    I hope so. I really don’t want to see a shooting war start in the USA. As we proved during the Civil War, Americans are insensate fighters when aroused. Our worst casualties in any war were when we fought ourselves. No people on earth are as dangerous as enraged Americans. We have the tools, the knowledge and the will to use both of them. The fact that some 24 million of us are military veterans, let alone police veterans, and armed, is what makes us unconquerable and even ungovernable as a nation. The true count of all firearms in America is pretty close to 300 million. Almost one for every man, woman and child. And the civil population possesses literally billions of rounds of ammunition. What army on earth wants to face that? Not even our own. Enough of us have talents in explosives and guerrilla warfare to cause nightmares for any general contemplating an invasion or martial law.

    It only takes 3-4% of a population to take up arms to defeat a government. We have 7% just in veterans alone. Add in the hunters of each state (who know how to stalk, shoot and use camouflage) and we outnumber any army on earth.

    Beto is very wrong when he thinks he can seize America’s guns.

      I agree that antagonized, the Americans would be an awful force. But waking them up is remarkably difficult. Let’s hope all we have to do is stand up on our hind legs and demand that our elected officials do their jobs. If it goes beyond that it will be a tragedy. Possibly necessary but still a tragedy.
