Obama is not stupid. At 9 trillion dollars and rapidly growing, this country will soon be bankrupt. The interest alone is going to kill us. And he still hasn't even touched 2 trillion for the global warming package and the multi-trillion socialized medicine and health care. He knows having some "sweet" on the table in years to come might be a nice thing. Yes, those "victory" gardens might be needed. But they might be called "Keep you alive" gardens.... ;)
I agree that it has more to do with the possibility of image, and can possibly help down the road with a presentation to a township board.
Can you imagine if every state capital had a beehive on the property to "help" pollinate the flowers (assuming no veggies are planted)? I'd start a movement, but if I approach my wife with one more idea this year, I may be looking for a new home... :roll:
Anyone know this beekeeper working for the whitehouse? I would love to have the white house participate in "National Honey Bee Awareness Day". That would be cool.
