There Are No Limits To American Absurdity


From some marijuana-riddled hippy heaven in Oregon:
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."
Relatives from a neighboring hive will perform a fly by/sting by while the names of each victim are read off. Target's home headquarters has offered to demolish the store in order for a memorial park to be installed in its place.

Somewhere, somehow lawyers are buzzing over this. And yes, I get that bees are incredibly important to our fruits and vegetables, so let's ban the application of chemicals  that kill beneficial insect species (there's too much of this crap being being sprayed anyway) and stop worrying about where owls nest or if snail darters can fornicate. This whole environmental protection racket seems to be run by thugs and lunatics and people who would rather play golf and go on vacations than help run a country of 316 million people. Banging drums and giant puppet heads are not going to save a single bee,

I found it ironic they are crying over bees death, and in Texas, the mob was protesting stricter abortion laws here at the state capitol.

Actually, given your title, I now remember Einstein saying that the only thing he thought might be infinite is human stupidity.
