    I have a honey bee who fell in love with one of my securtiy cameras and is sitting on the lens. It is pretty cold out & maybe the camera is producing warmth. :lol:

    I can just about see through him, looks like an x-ray, head area black, a black spine area and clear bosy around it, and a black tail where the stinger area is located. I can hear him buzzing when he flew around the lens before sitting down.:eusa_angel:

    It would be good to see the honey bees back.
    Just one more near catastrophe created by factory farming that could have devastating results.

    Here in CA., they are protected and you are not supposed to kill them. So when you you have a hive to get rid of, the pest control gives you some phone numbers from the bee society and they will remove them.

    Needs to be protected more than CA.
    There is a GIANT problem with bee population right now. All because factory bee keepers fed them nothing but one kind of blossom because it improved the taste of honey. This has created a generation of bees that are getting sick very easy.
    You not familiar with the story?
    No kidding...this could create biblical problems.

    Scientists found that pesticides were affecting honey bees ability to learn and remember...

    We can't build a pipeline, but we can continue to allow agriculture to devastate the environment as it's been doing for 100 years. And will continue to do so in perpetuity.

    Agriculture became more devastating when the small family farms got bought up by the big guys.

    Large corporate concerns, earning record profits while consumers pay record prices for their products. All the while they export their commodity overseas. What's not to hate?

    Agriculture. That's what's not to hate. Give them free reign to rape the environment and the economy.

    Yet- they would not exist if it weren't for hydrocarbons.

    So who do we punish?

    I think you know the rest of this story.

    Paul Harvey- God made a farmer. What a bunch of horse shit.
