Hi All,
My name is Gary.
I started my first 2 hives in April this year.
I am always looking for advice, and I'm sure I will be asking a lot of questions.
I've already learned that you can never have enough boxes and frames!

Looks like the hive is tilted back, needs to be higher in the back to shed rain

I agree 100% with these two statements.  The problem is with the trickle down theory the "down" people were not allowed to keep more of their earnings only the "up" people were allowed to keep more of their income and the trickle didn't happen.  The greedy rich then took the present that the "down" people paid for and moved jobs and factories off shore because there was no accountability for the gift.  So yes, when you give people, companies, corporations money with no obligations to share the wealth you make poverty worse.  You destroy the American Dream and you have more unrest which in the end burst the bubble.

If you have tax cuts, the people paying taxes get the cuts.  47% of the population pays no federal income tax and so there is no cut to give them.  The "greedy rich" did not get a present.  Tax money is confiscation of earnings.  If I steal your car and then give it back to you, do you consider this a gift of a car?

There is not, and should not be, an "obligation to share the wealth".  There should be an obligation to provide for yourself.  Sharing is something you do by choice.  Obligations are something forced or unavoidable. 

Companies exist to make money.  They will go where the conditions are most favorable for making money.   The US is not that country anymore. 
The jobs and benefits that people get from a company are a side effect of the company making money.  If our taxes and regulations are driving companies out of the country, then the people of the US will not benefit from profitable companies.

It has been proven by history in many countries that the single most productive investment a country can do is to educate the population.

I don't disagree with this.  We are currently failing.  The people who would benefit the most from a change in the way we provide and fund education, poor people supposedly represented by Democrats, are the ones losing the most.  They have the most to gain by being able to choose schools that will actually provide the opportunity for education.  I can understand why Democrats would want to keep a segment of the population stupid and poor if they can count on those votes.
The rest of your bit about education I don't understand.

Feeding the top will never work, likewise trickle down will never work.  Feeding the top is what all the underdeveloped countries do.  Feeding the poor will never hurt a developed country.  Feeding the unmotivated hurts the country.  Taking from the "down" people and giving to the "up" people un-motivates the "down" people.

Actually, what 3rd world socialist countries do is confiscate the product of work. 
As for taking from the bottom, you can't.  They don't have anything to take.  What motivates people to do better is a desire to do better...and starvation....What allows them to do better is an opportunity.  What disincentivises people is giving them stuff with no expectation of then doing anything to earn stuff.

Wow, Ace, who wrote that for you. It makes way too much sense for you to have done it.  It's exactly what the conservatives have been saying all along. Make the rules easy for business, set tariffs on imports to balance prices, cut welfare to bare essentials. Place more oversight on tax spending. Reduce foreign aid to bare essentials, food, meds, etc. NO CASH. Now get your libs to agree and you will see great progress.

Waiting to see those pictures.  :cheesy:

I killed 3 the other day and then didn't see any, all the girls were relaxed and not 300 bees on each landing area, then 3-4 more showed up this afternoon.........so I suited up, they are no longer with us.

There was a chain of bees, 1.5 inches in diameter and hanging 8" down from bottom board, then part of the cluster finally fell to the ground......then they stayed there in a ball, ina few mns they flew back up to the box. They were killing a Wasp, when the honeybees left, there was a barely alive Paper Wasp.
I think we are winning.
