Adding to a string of great green initiatives coming out of the White House recently, President Obama recently announced the creation of a new Pollinator Health Task Force.

Lol right like this one: http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/06/26/usa-energy-condensate-idUSL2N0P520420140626

If they want to save the bees, then outlaw neonicotinoids. Very simple. Doesnt require a task force, milestones or all the other assorted political garbage these freaks claim to care about.

Perhaps hold a vote on it? Nope, thats far too easy. Better to make a nice story of it, give everyone a fuzzy feeling and then do absolutely nothing about it in 180 days after all the little people have forgotten about it.
