What kind of an example are we setting for the world?

Are we setting an example for the world? Our government complains about the Russians in the Ukraine. It complains about the Syrians using chemical weapons on it’s people, yet our FBI launches incendiary chemical weapons into a house using propane for heat. Teargas canisters are incendiary. The people had not been found guilty of any crimes and at the time were not under any indictments. Obama was in Congress at the time and did nothing to hold the FBI accountable.

I guess we truly are setting an example for the world — it is just a poor one.

Someone foolishly sealed hive entrance with silicone

For those who don’t know it, there is a large tree in Minden Park where thousands of honey bees have entered a hole in its trunk and are actively making a natural hive. This is an interesting and rare sight. These bees have been coming and going with pollen from the many flowers in the park for well over a year now. The big problem — someone has taken it upon himself to seal up their hive entrance with silicone! Who is so stupid?

These bees are a wonder of nature and do not bother anyone. The fact is bees are what pollinate our trees and flowers. Pesticides and other pollutants have been killing all our bees for many years now. We definitely don’t need some ignorant person unnecessarily killing the bees in Minden Park! My friend and I are going to try to reopen the hive entrance. Hopefully it’s not too late.
