BE GLAD YOU’RE NOT A BEE…
Did you know that if we were to start with January 1, 2015, it would take until April 24th before we (the U.S. nation as a whole), would have paid off our tax bill and the rest of the money we make in 2015 is our income after taxes?
How about the bees? Bees are also hard-working producers. One hive alone can produce about 60 pounds of honey. Beekeepers can’t take all 60 pounds of honey, however. That would be like taxing the poor creatures at 100%. Bees need honey as food storage for the winter.
But the bees don’t need all that honey. They only need about 1/3 to 1/2 of it. So in a sense, they pay at least 50% in taxes and keep the rest for themselves.
It’s April 15. While we have filed our taxes, and we’ll continue to pay every day until April 24th, the bees are still paying until around June 30th. Feel better now?
One more thing. Bees work themselves to death. Literally. The males are pretty much kicked out of the hive when winter approaches, and the females are so busy that they only live about a month or so. Don’t be like that.
Here’s to a relaxing April 15th!
