Thanks shooz. Troubling indeed. Global implications. Like Builder pointed out...no bees, means we're gone in 4 years.

I'm cross posting this to gnomunny's Monsanto thread as well.

They've got them off the ground, on a leash only. Programming them to do the job of a pollinator is a long way off. The money spent on this kind of a problem, reminds me of scientists trying to find an alternative cure for cancer, when they know that hash oil already works.

The heuristics have been studied for a while now, almost like they expected the collapse.

Someday, that battery will come......:)

I still prefer REAL bees though.

Thanks shooz, for posting this. There is nothing more important than workers' rights and ending wars except for caring for our environment.

I was just listening to this song and it seems quite fitting here so here you go, a little Jackson Browne:

Since this is obviously not a man-made situation, maybe God decided His natural global warming was not fast enough - since He obviously wants to start over

Huh?

but . . . wait . . . isn't nicotine good for you?

so . . . neo.nicotine, and their derivatives, neo.nicotin.oids - don't they have to be really really cool?

Where can I get a pack?

Apparent, you just have to eat some corn on the cob..........:)

Just cook it in it's unwashed husk, for the best effects.

can't I just put a match to it and breathe deep?

Yes!

You can roll the dead bees into a cigarette and smoke it that way!!!!

You'll "bee" partyin' hardy with the bees in no time!

[-] 2 points by ZenDog (20447) from South Burlington, VT 9 months ago

right right right! The bees ate of the pollen and ingested the neonicotinoids, and so they must be rich in coolness, fat with hotness, and buzzing with goodness!

I bet they burn with a sweet aroma . . .

Smokin' the bee's knees!!!

Yum.

Ouch. Thank you shooz for post. 'Crime Against Humanity', and 'Crime Against Every Living Thing'.

[-] 6 points by Renneye (3173) 9 months ago

Yep! Democide. And, slow and painful, at that. Hopefully sooner than later, the populace will understand that it's ok to go and protest against the .01% oligarchs who control these corporations, at the front doors of their homes.

Only when they are uncomfortable, will they stop.

Well said. It did not have to be this way. The .01% could have used their power to do good, but chose to do wrong.

The "Reign Of Terror" began, because people could not afford flour.

and do you know who made zyklon b ?

[-] 2 points by ZenDog (20447) from South Burlington, VT 9 months ago

I thought it was Bayer - I'm sure there is current pharmaceutical company that had a hand in it but I just can't remember . . . I'm going to have to follow shooz's links to refresh my memory because that is a very good question and really we should all know the answer . . .

Interesting . . .

I'm not convinced such companies should be allowed to continue to exist when they have such a clear lineage to atrocity of this magnitude - but Wiesel's comments are very interesting.

I would say we have a PROBLEM

Wouldn't U

[-] 2 points by shooz (26677) 9 months ago

Yes......we do.

WE now know many of the culprits, but we are NOT acting against them.

Truly a sad situation - when as long as you can line a politicians pocket - they will let you destroy the planet - one way or another doesn't matter.

'Corporate War Of Aggression' reaches new low. Incorporation, has cursed the world. Either corporations end, or the world ends.

The world will end if the corp(se)oRations are not subdued. Truth. Funny thing is - If they were run properly - they could save the earth - but they are not and will not - not until they are made to. So either they are ended or they are subdued.
