Bumblebee memorial scheduled for Sunday at Wilsonville Target
The Oregonian ^ | June 26, 2013 | Elizabeth Case

Posted on 06/29/2013 7:43:41 PM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

Fifty thousand bumblebees will be honored in a memorial this weekend at the Wilsonville Target where a majority of the insects died. State officials directly linked the die-off to trees that had been sprayed with the insecticide Safari.

Rozzell Medina, of Portland, said on the Facebook page that the event will "memorialize these fallen lifeforms and talk about the plight of the bees and their importance to life on Earth."

There was a thread up about this yesterday, with most of the comments about "where are the memorials for all the aborted?"

I'm glad I'm 66 and don't have another two decades in this world, as it's evolved......sad.....maybe Mom and Dad thought the same thing during their later years, as they saw their world 'as we know it' being shattered.

I’m working on a memorial to all the bacteria that died when I used my mouth wash this morning.

It is bacteria that nobody cares about. All states have law requiring people to kill bacteria after using restrooms if the serve food. Don’t get me started about doctors. Just the simple act for combing your hair can kill or injure lice! The circle of life really rough when people properly groom themselves. Do you how many forms of life are found in belly button lent. If you do your probably a left wing nut. I don’t

Just think of the billions of poor innocent bugs that are slaughtered on the windshields of vehicles each year. Maybe we need to have memorial services at the gas station bays before the squeegee sends them to their driveway grave.

Oh my God! Is that for real? In a normal, reality-based world, I would immediately discount the possibility of that sign being for real.

But when I saw this: Moonbats cry over fallen trees I knew that my reservoir of things so stupid that they were impossible shrunk to almost nothing.

But I will say, it made me laugh like hell just to consider it. It is so easy to see a liberal putting up a sign like that…

Actually the bees were killed by a tree pesticide spray called Safari.
If anything these dopes should be protesting whichever Agri business produces this crap. Neonicotinoids/GMO’s are killing everything including these stupid tree huggers.

yup, it's real alright...

and i've seen that video before, their problems are solvable they just don't have the guts to step off the cliff

obviously none of them have a life anyway and they would do the earth more good as plant food than breathing air the trees could use

liberalism is a mental defect... feh

Yup. If they REALLY, REALLY care, they would do the right thing and eliminate themselves from the equation. I guess they don’t really care. After all it would be for the good of mother earth.

I have to admit, When I first saw that video, I was far from amused. I think my mouth must’ve been hanging open in astonishment. After I watched it a few more times I began to laugh. When I showed it to a friend of mine, I think I actually had tears running down my face.

I am STILL shaking my head at it. I have this little animated file that says this:

Instead, I wish I had the same kind of file that said "LIBERALISM IS A MENTAL DISORDER"

I must have been freeping too long... When I saw the thread, my first thought was not how I might intellectually contribute to it, my first thought was: “Has anyone posted the animated Oprah Bees GIF file????!!!!!”

I have no excuse…

stupid tree huggers

Item from the Portland Oregonian: "Portland goes for tree-hugging world record."

No kidding. This is an actual event to take place on July 20.

I can't even laugh over that. It's just sad that there are people that toony in the world. I know I'm messed up about some things, but who in their right mind would cry, scream, and wail over a tree?

Tree hugging liberals are at the root of it all anyway. If we could still use DDT, bees would be much safer.
