Snowhitsky RP is Congressman Ron Paul MD (R TX). He is retired now but he was known for standing up to assaults to liberty. 
Thanks for confirming my comment about the Swiss living faithfully behind our Second Amendment. "A well regulated militia being necessary for the security of a free state; The right of the people to keep and bare arms shall not be infringed."

My bees died last spring due to very cold conditions.  I only had one colony left because of bear attacks, so I was hoping to get it though the the 2012-2013 winter.  However, it died. 

I couldn't find any beekeepers to sell a nuc this year because all the beekeepers sustained 75% losses as well.  So everyone did horrible.  We are in a mite-free area so it has nothing to do with mites; just long-cold winter (-30 to -40 for prolong time).

Question:  My frames of unused honey are mold-covered from my dead-out.  About 20 frames.  Should I save these frames of honey for 2015 colonies that I will purchase or just boil the frames to extract the wax and forget about the capped, moldy honey.  What would you do?  I would hate to waste all that honey, but maybe I should.

No problem.  I have a small backyard and a fireplace, with nothing inbetween the hives and the fire pit.  Never had a problem.  Only problem I've had is when my daughter leaves her toys out and they fill with water and the bees drown in them.

My fire bowl is about 20 feet from the apiary.  The flood lights might attract some late home-bound flyers, but the fire won't.
I don't run the floods while the fire is burning anyway.  Spoils the effect.

The Bracero program was killed by the Mexican-Americans through the efforts of U.S. rep. henry B. gonzales of San Antonio.  It was a program that worked, but I guess the Latino leaders thought it was taking jobs away from their people.  I didn't see a lot of the people from San Antonio taking those back-breaking jobs but....  I haven't understood the support in that community now for the illegals' cause. 

I know quite a few "undocumented workers" who have been in the US many years and the ones I know are good, honest people who just want to work.  Two friends returned to Mexico last year after working here and sending money home, where the money was used to build a nice solid home they returned to. 

If we were in their position, what would we do?  Before retirement, I moved a number of times to places where jobs were, so I know what I would do.  We can't blame them for taking advantage of our government's failure to protect our borders and for escaping the corruption and poor economies of their countries.

That being said, it's up to our officials to plug the sieve that's supposed to be a border.

Who's "RP"?

I lived in Switzerland for 17 years and the reason they have been successfully neutral is twofold. First, while most of their neighbours have had the military capacity to conquer Switzerland, the Swiss have made sure it would be difficult and costly. To give you an example, every single bridge in the country has explosives built into them and can be blown up at short notice. Add to that half a million citizens with assault rifles and ammunition at home with yearly army training until they are 42 and a comprehensive system of fortifications and you have a serious problem on your hands. The other reason is that they have made themselves useful to belligerents as was the case in WW2 when ALL participants made use of Swiss banks.

@kathyp

"They refused sanctuary to 1000s of Jews.  they had internment camps.  they kept and laundered money and loot."

All three of the above apply to the USA too in WW2.

"if they stand up, and that's a big if for the Swiss, they will be attacked from within as the Dutch have been."

The swiss have already voted in a referendum to ban the building of mosques as it wouldn't fit in with the Swiss landscape. No rivers of blood so far. Frankly, far more people get run over by cars (accidentally I might add) than by muslim fanatics.

We have had quite a few days over 40 here where I am over the last couple of weeks.  All my hive have ventilated lids and screen bottom boards, but to give my hives some shelter from the blazing hot midday sun, I have put a shadecloth shelter over them.  This gives them dappled shade from about 11:00 to 2:00, but even with this all the hives are spending a lot more time outside the hive then in it.
