There's a koran publisher somewhere that really loves this guy

"Dr. Jones has announced†he will be burning 2,998 Korans on September 11†at a Mulberry property. The Koran is the Islamic religious book. He said he will burn one book for each life lost during the 9/11†attacks."

No, dumbass dave, this is not a post in support of your father.

Extinction is usually a slow process. Dinosaurs being the exception.
Hundreds of birds of the same species falling from the sky at once and hundreds and hundreds of dead fish washing ashore at the same time can't possibly be due to extinction.
Honey bees are disappearing worldwide. It's reached epidemic proportions.
Bottlenose dolphins are also beaching themselves along the East Coast.
So far this summer, more than 160 dead dolphins have been found along the Atlantic Coast. In August alone 70 dead dolphins were found in Virginia and 25 bodies were found just last Friday and Saturday.
Something isn't right. In fact, something is very wrong. It has nothing to do with extinction.
We better be paying attention to this.
What's wrong has to do with living off the oil derived from the millions of years of decomposed Dinosaur bodies for too long.

I simply misunderstood. The information about radical Islamists burning down a school in Nigeria with children still in it directly followed a discussion about the crisis in Egypt.
I was the one not paying close enough attention at the time.
The Muslim Brotherhood is bad news and always has been. Does it matter if Al Jazeera or Jordan or any other country supports them?
They are killing Christians. That's all that matters and what you should be talking about.
Do you think Obama supports the Muslim Brotherhood?

On the honey bees you may have a point___did your documentary mention butterflies?
You just don't get it or know much of anything - or even care to know - do you?

Approximately 4,000 red-winged blackbirds over Beebe, Arkansas, in 2011 dropped dead from the sky just before midnight on New Year's Eve.

A new report declared 96% of four species of bees have died off in recent years making the world's ecosystems more than a little fragile.

Where were you when this was big news two years ago?

Don't ever say I don't know what's going on in the world again.

Some of them were explainable. Others were not.

Donald Trump, Other Birthers Totally Peachy With Canadian Anchor Baby Ted Cruz To President US

You might think that after all the foofaraw and fuck-tussling over the birth certificate of Barack Hussein Obama, thereís no way in hell that the birther crowd would ever support a candidate who was indisputably born in a totally different country that is not the U.S.A., right?

Donít be silly. Birthers are coming forward to say they just canít get enough of Ted Cruz, who was born in Calgary, British Columbia Alberta, Canada [Doktor Zoom sucks at geography. This would worry him if "Canada" were a real country]ó even though there are like three different countries named right there. But birthers are saying, nahh, man, itís OK, because even though his father was a Cuban citizen, his mom was an American citizen, so itís cool, heís totes American. Itís a totally different case from that of the Kenyan Usurper, whose father was Kenyan and whose mother was an American citizen, because Ted Cruz never lived in Indonesia or ate a dog or something argle bargle beagle.

Honey bees are quickly disappearing from flowers and fields, succumbing to disease and colony collapse disorder. Now, scientists may have found part of the reason why these insects are dying; they've discovered that common agricultural chemicals, including fungicides,**could be** responsible for impairing bees' ability to fight off a potentially lethal parasite.

Honey bees are an important farm of the ecosystem, pollinating flowers that eventually fruit and produce seeds. Farmers regularly rent bees or keep bees of their own in order to help pollinate crops and produce higher yields. Over the years, though, these insects have begun to disappear. In fact, researchers found that beekeepers lost 31 percent of their colonies in late 2012 and early 2013. That's roughly double of what's considered to be acceptable in terms of losses, according to Wired.

In order to see what might be affecting these bees, researchers collected pollen from honey bee hives in fields that ranged from Delaware to Maine. They then analyzed the samples to find out which flowering plants were the bees' main pollen sources and what agricultural chemicals were being introduced into the pollen and, consequently, the honey. In addition, the scientists fed pesticide-laden pollen samples to healthy bees and then tested them for their ability to resist infection with Nosema ceranae. This parasite affects adult honey bees and has been linked to the lethal colony collapse disorder.

In the end, the researchers found that the pollen samples contained 9 different agricultural chemicals. These included fungicides, insecticides, herbicides and miticides. In addition, they discovered that sublethal levels of multiple agricultural chemicals were present in every sample; in fact, one contained as many as 21 different pesticides. The most prevalent of these were the fungicide chlorothalonil and the insecticide fluvalinate.

They didn't just find these chemicals present in the honey, though. The researchers found that bees fed pollen samples containing chlorothonatil were nearly three times more likely to be infected by the deadly parasite Nosema than bees that were not exposed to these chemicals. This is a huge finding in terms of determining exactly what may be harming these insects.

"We don't think of fungicides as having a negative effect on bees, because they're not designed to kill insects," said Dennis vanEngelsdorp, one of the researchers, in a news release. Federal regulations restrict the use of insecticides while bees are foraging, but that isn't the case with fungicides. "But there are no such regulations on fungicides, so you'll often see fungicide applications going on while bees are foraging on the crop. This finding suggests that we have to reconsider that policy."
