    The competence of the FBI and law enforcement demonstrates why we should give up our guns and depend on them for self defense.

    I can’t sympathize too much with the woman who didn’t get the job because she refused the vaccination. It seems like she would have known. The hospital should have the right to hire or not, anyone for any reason. But, the medical industry kind of partners too heavily with The State, which also kind of means they lost their right to do what they want, since they rely on stolen money.

    I do kinda love the beehive thing. Always enjoyed watching them work inside the hives.

    The FBI refuses to help, but is enthusiastic to harm. Why tolerate the FBI?

    How do you convince murderers to shoot at the textbooks you are holding instead of at your unprotected parts? I never quite understood how that was supposed to work. I guess it works by the same magic that makes “no guns” signs work.

    I looked at the indoor/outdoor bee hive and no, it’s not for me. I’m sure the buzzing would keep me awake at night. If I managed to sleep with the buzzing, there’s always the risk of the hive getting broken. Now this on the other hand has serious possibilities…

    Mike — Impressive, if it really works as well as depicted.

    I’m going to run this by a couple of beekeepers I know.

    My main criticism with the pledge is that I consider it to be very socialist, after all it was written by an avowed Cristian Socialist. Now if there were one that honored Liberty and Freedom….

    On another note, this is an interesting development, unfortunately the article also notes that California’s Independents tends to vote Democratically anyway.

    It’ll be interesting to see if that New California movement get any traction.

    I hope Idaho actually does go ahead and allow actual health insurance again. Health insurance has been outlawed by Obamacare. Literally, by the dictionary definition. insurance – “the act, system, or business of insuring property, life, one’s person, etc., against loss or harm arising in specified contingencies, as fire, accident, death, disablement, or the like, in consideration of a payment proportionate to the risk involved.”

    U.S. Code Title 42, Chapter 6A, Subchapter XXV, Section 300gg-4: “A group health plan, and a health insurance issuer offering group or individual health insurance coverage, may not require any individual (as a condition of enrollment or continued enrollment under the plan) to pay a premium or contribution which is greater than such premium or contribution for a similarly situated individual enrolled in the plan on the basis of any health status-related factor in relation to the individual or to an individual enrolled under the plan as a dependent of the individual.”

    So the definition of insurance includes paying a premium proportionate to risk. The Code of Babylon (a.k.a. the U.S. Code) says an insurance company may not charge premiums that are different from others based on any health-related factor. I hope Idaho manages to make health insurance legal again.
