    Bee hives are stable, productive communities that exist because of, not despite, the efforts of all involved.

    You're the one claiming that bee hives contain an entire class of
    subversives. But, as usual, I don't suspect you have any evidence for that.

    Hello Aaron,

    Late we are threatened with a ban for the fact that we are not
    communists.

    There's no rule against speaking about communism on here.

    Of course not. This is the POLITICS echo. Where anything goes.
    No moderators allowed, with moderators being their own moderators.
    Isn't that nice? Kinda neat, the way I look at it.

    These leftists (globalist-minded BBS people) are on a mission to defend everything the media says, so the things you say are shocking to them. They
    can't imagine any reason to doubt the words they hear on TV.

    I know deaf/blind folks who could care less about tv or what shows
    might be on such devices. Does that qualify them as "rightists" or
    something other than "leftists"?

    They are like bees; the media is the "queen bee," and Bjorn, Jeff, and a few
    other insane people are the "drone bees," and the only thing that "drone bees" do for their colony is reproduce offspring.

    What planet are you from? A drone's *only* role is to mate with a
    maiden queen in nuptial flight. Drones do not gather nectar or pollen.
    And do not have a stinger. A queen bee is a worker bee, the only worker
    bee that drone bees will mate with. Once their job is done, they just
    sit around and wait for the next one to come around.

    The other group of American people in here are conservatives. Conservatives
    are like the "worker bees," because they work hard for their money, and they have curiosity and concern about how the government spends income tax revenue.

    Dude, drone bees only mate with the maiden queen in nuptial flight.
    No other worker bee gets to enjoy the fun.

    The "drones" don't care about the colony, and in this case they actually want to see it collapse.

    Drone bees have no stinger, thus ensuring the queen bee's survival.
    And are always true to their mate, never cheating on her as long as
    she is alive. You see, a queen bee is female, and creates all the
    babies for the hive. If not for drone bees, bees could not survive.
    Which would mean the extinction of the human race. Albert Einstein
    said so himself.

    But it doesn't take a genius to figure it out.

    For Life,
    Lee

    Hello Jeff,

    Late we are threatened with a ban for the fact that we are not
    communists.
    There's no rule against speaking about communism on here.

    Indeed, there is not. Nor is there any rule against speaking about capitalism, socialism, authoritarianism, despotism, libertarianism, totalitarianism, antidisestablimentarianism, etc.

    The US Constitution mentions no economic system, or political parties.

    It would be helpful, though, if you actually knew something about whatever you're posting about.

    Be careful. A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing.

    These leftists
    (globalist-minded BBS people) are on a mission to defend everything the
    media says, so the things you say are shocking to them.

    No they're not. They're just false.

    Not true, Fox-News-boy.

    Hmm. And how do the "worker bees" feel about living under a monarchy? As you
    can see, your metaphor is nonsense.

    All drones die for their queen.
    Just like all MAGA idiots die for their ...

    The "drones" don't care about the colony, and in this case they actually
    want to see it collapse.

    Drone bees do not want the colony to collapse. Where did you learn about bees?

    Once the queen dies there is no more need for a colony ...

    Shame on you! A person is supposed to be presumed innocent until
    proven guilty in this country of ours.

    Guilt by accusation was the norm in Nazi Germany. As well as in
    Stalinist Russia. And in Maoist China. And a few other places of
    note.

    But this is America. As described by Francis Scott Key in the last
    stanza of his famous poem, "The land of the free, and the home of the
    brave?"

    What wimps.

    I still say you are wrong about the drones. Only one of them contributes
    anything to the hive. The others all just free load off of the workers until they kill them.

    Oh, and which one is that? Are you assuming that only one of the drones mates with the queen bee?

    That is what we were taught (and shown on film) in school.

    Also, research has shown that when when bees -- both workers and drones -- detect that the hive is getting too cold or too warm, they work together to regulate the temperature of the hive by shivering or moving air with their wings, respectively.

    We were taught that the drones do very little, so that is new.

    The workers don't kill the drones, nor does the queen. They die as a result of mating, or of natural causes.

    That is not what we were taught (and shown on film) in school. It is also
    not what we were shown during a nature class where bees were kept in a bee
    box that was see through on one end. We got to watch the workers drag the still live and kicking drones to one corner of the box where they were
    being killed.

    Some of them could die of natural causes, I am sure, but the ones we
    watched that day died of the "natural cause" of injuries inflicted by the
    other bees, which apparently is something that naturally happens.

    I remember it well because I was not a fan of bees at that age.

    Attempting to compare bee sociology to human forms of government is not a
    vwry good metaphor.
