Killer bees, taming the swarm
« on: February 07, 2012, 11:35:31 PM »
I just caught this on the SCI channel. Pretty good to see that someone is finally taking a different approach with AHB. They didn't over hype the "Killer" aspect and focused more on how we need to learn to live with them and work them. Lots of basic information of course and some of it not quite accurate but it was refreshing to see the other side of the story on tv for once. Didn't care for the "removal expert" in AZ just "spraying them down with a little soapy water so they don't fly" too much but hey, can't have everything.
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
