"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."

With the mild winter we've had I am hoping for a mega swarm year. Last year was a dud around these parts. These videos keep me pumped!

Kinda glad to see you passed on that higher swarm. Your skinny but you'd still put a pretty good dent in the ground falling from 20' up and then who would give JP a run for the money.  :-D

Nice job, thanks for the video. How's the house rebuilding going?

Nice work, Scott.  That got me a little more fired up. ;)

I know that was a swarm and they're supposed to be gentle, but handling them and shaking them....it looked like you might have had bee love made to you a time or two...any stings?

These figures don't include 70,000 MIA.  But, the leaders of one political party of the United States of America continue to make the statement..."What difference does it make?".

Took a few stings but, as always, most were my fault! As far as bee love goes....why do you think I call Peggy "Honey" :-D
