    I told those people not to go digging for what's left of Bush's dignity. Now who has to clean up their mess.

    Now that the Obama’s have moved into the White House, we have bees; not WASPS.

    To be, or not to be: that is the question in Shakespeare's Hamlet but to be a Beekeeper and not to be a Carpenter is a more practical solution to deal with the Honey Bees invading Obama's White House!

    Now they need a large greenhouse for Florida OJ trees so the bees can produce delightful Orange Blossom Honey-another terrific treat along with the tasty fruit and juice that can be obtained from the same trees. I'd be willing to bet Florida could come up with at least the trees if not funding for a greehouse on the grounds! What happens to bees during a DC Winter?

    This White House economist demonstrates his "bee-lief" in the economic stimulus package will work and shows that in quick enough fashion, the nation's economy will be swarming with increased consumer spending, the availabilty of credit and mortgage refinancing.

    The worker bee is a symbol of industry and community hearkening back to the days of Lincoln. Never mind that it's actually a Medici symbol and Lincoln was a Republican.

    After finally reading through the entire stimulus bill, Obama discovered that in addition to protecting the salt marsh harvest mouse Pelosi also included $20,000,000 to study the ability of bees to make honey from the flower and vegetable gardens at the White House.

    In order to keep the White House security budget in check the Obama administration has installed honey bees to guard the perimeter of the White House. In a statement President Obama said, "Worked for Disney".
