I think he was under pressure to do it.  the pledge was not to endorse, but to support. 

Endorse or support is the same thing in my mind. 
I guess with polititions it might be differrent, go figure.
I remember kinda liking mccain but then seeing him getting interviewed on meet the press or something like that.  Leiberman had just lost a primary and was running as an independent.  The interviewer was asking mccain if he was going to support the republican nominee in the same race.  Mccain talked for several minutes about how good lieberman was and then threw in that of course he would support the republican nominee.  It was easy to see he was really supporting lieberman but didn't want to break enough with the party to compleetly go with leiberman.  I thought it came across as a moment of cowardness.

I sorta look at cruz's indorsement in the same fassion. 

I really didn't like cruz more then I didn't like trump and find it hard to believe both of them but definatly most hard to believe trump.

The only thing about not believeing trump compared to cruz is trump in the past had some more liberal views and so by electing him, I with more liberal views then some on here, might still get a partial win.  Nothing I could count on cause who knows when to believe trump but maby a better chance then if cruz had won.

It does go to show that trump was right in that he didn't need any of them cause after he got the nomination, clinton haters would have nowhere else to turn but to him.

I guess it has made cruz's endorsment a kinda non-event except to show just how bad you can be to him and still get his endorsement.  I doubt it brings in any new voters for trump and only time will tell how it affects cruz.  Unless he got a campain donation for his current race, I can't see how it gained him anything.
Cheers

Never mind that the economy is in the toilet propped up only by government investment.  The size of government has grown higher and faster under this president and the national debt has skyrocketed .  It will have doubled in the 8 years of Obama 20 over 20 trillion dollars.  There are more regulations, more government edicts, more power taken from the states and congress and given to the federal government. 

Obama has deployed military force in more countries at one time than ever, with more meddling in foreign affairs than ever.  he has made nice with our enemies and shunned our friends.  Fewer leaders respect him/us now than ever.  No one trusts him or our state department.

He has executed without trial American citizens, and killed civilians without care.  He has put our nation at risk with his immigration policies.  Obamacare is an extremely expensive disaster. 

I can't think of anything that is better since he took office.

In the US, the more liberal portion of society tends to live in the urban cities, and the bigger the city, the more liberal they tend to be. 

The same can be said of other countries. 

I think the different mentality is the illusion that people in the city labor under that because they are so close and have all these services at hand, they are interdependent, and also inter-supportive.  They have to live in a different way because they are on top of each other.  what they do not seem to realize is that the nature of man is not different from city to country.  The nature of man is simply suppressed by living conditions in the city. 

people in the country are more dependant on themselves and like it that way.  Not that they will not step in and help when it is needed, but they are not up in each others business all the time.  They also realize the fragility of life and society in a way that city people do not. 

City people depend on a bunch of government provided services and this leads them to believe that government is good.  The more the government regulates the better they seem to like it. 

There is a divide, but it is not unique to this country. 

What alternative views would you like?  would you like to hear how great Hillary is?   :wink:

Jim, I am going to guess that if he has a lot of nectar rolling in there are drones present.

 I personally do not like guessing. I do have a good friend who lives down in the Land of Oz. He tells me there are some times a year. When bees can get all kinds of nectar and not get pollen at all. In some areas this will kill bee hives.

     BEE HAPPY Jim 134  :smile:

Cider,

In the US, the more liberal portion of society tends to live in the urban cities, and the bigger the city, the more liberal they tend to be.  The less densely populated areas tend to be more conservative, both in lifestyle and politics.
 Beekeepers are, in general, living and working in the country or the suburbs, so tend to be more conservative, and thus your perceived "imbalance".  Just the nature of things.

that's my tuppence.

I never do one without a prior inspection. Where is the plumbing, wiring, second and third walls stacked from old remodels, etc. Know what you are getting into before starting.

DON'T BE AFRAID TO WALK AWAY.

lol that's ok. That's what my husband said too. Butte has a lot of old houses but this one is on the flats and those are a bit newer. It looks to be from about the 70's but that's a good point about the type of insulation.

MT Bee Girl, sorry aboit hijacking your string.

How old is this place, which brings the next question -- what kind of insulation?  When inspecting, have your husband check that insulation.  It could be bad stuff, particularly in an older structure.   Remember, too, you'll be wearing a bee suit and two feet could get real tight and there could be things to get snagged on.
