More than 1,000 dead birds fall from sky in Ark

Jan 2, 2011 | Posted by: Inisa Love | Full story: news.yahoo.com

BEEBE, Ark. Wildlife officials are trying to determine what caused more than 1,000 blackbirds to die and fall from the sky over an Arkansas town.

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission said Saturday that it began receiving reports about the dead birds about 11:30 p.m. the previous night. The birds fell over a 1-mile area of Beebe, and an aerial survey indicated that no other dead birds were found outside of that area.

We send our children to foreign places everyday to kill for a paycheck in the name of America. We don't pay them much and they still follow orders.

I had a friend who used to manage El Morro Natl Monument. Have you ever been there?
Yes I have, very pretty and interesting place.

From Albuquerque, NM, or from the east: take Interstate 40 west to Grants. At exit 81, go south on Highway 53 for 42 miles to El Morro National Monument.

<quoted text> Some folks are killers and some aint. when this whole economic & social nightmare goes south the killers will have a big advantage. Being self reliant and having Know How is much better than hoarding bunkers full of stuff. That hoarded prepper stuff will just make you a targret for bad folks . Or maybe the guvermint to confinscate it and redistrubute it(because they have more than their fair share).
Good points. I believe everybody has a little killer in them, they just don't know it yet..

<quoted text> I think there not stupid. I think its a denialist cant face the facts & truth core concept. greater nations than the USA have bit the dust its not inconceivable that the USA is in decline and fading fast. Deep in debt. too many taking parasites too few producing makers. And add a few more big clatyclismic earth change events and it all falls apart.Im not in fear of it. I know Ill lose everything Ive worked for and im debt free. I prefer to look at it as a new adventure. What more exciting time to be alive on the earth than at the end of an age earth change. Ill probably not survive but I will embrace the journey. Its likely divine intervention will be at play and most will get just exactly what they get& get exactly what they deserve. I hope so anyway.
When you look back on History you see all those great nations that collapsed within like the Greeks and the Romans and those before and after them and you can trace it back to one thing. BORDERS. None of those great countries could control their Borders and they all imploded. Most imploded when their country was about 200 years old. Well, America can not control our Borders we are a little over 200 years old and the country is changing right before our eyes. I suggest you stock up on weapons, ammunition, water, food and medicine or learn how to do for yourself. Not many people will survive once the thugs band together and leave the big cities in quest for your goods.

I hear ya about the IRS. The problem is SOOOO many people make income that they don't pay taxes on. Why would they single you out?Look at all the people who do odd jobs for cash. Everything from babysitting to mowing lawns, to cleaning houses, to computer repair, to car repair, to drug dealers and prostitutes.
I think if the government really wanted to bring in tax revenue, and make the system fair for everybody, they would make a flat sales tax so everyone would pay their share. No matter how you make your money, you would pay anytime you made a purchase. This way nobody would feel left out. The richer you are, the more you buy, the more you pay.
Illegal aliens are your biggest offenders and Illegal Mexicans send literally BILLIONS of dollars back to Mexico to float their economy. BILLIONS just to Mexico and I am not even counting all the other countries that receive the American dollar illegally.

I think my greatest immediate threat will Likely come from the lowlife welfare scum that live in the area. They already steal and vandalize with impunity. The law is no help. Ive let stuff slide because I just didnt want to kill someone over material goods. I had a guy steal several thousand dollars worth of items. I proved to the deputy the theft. The sherriff & prosecueter didnt do their job. And that thief was going to check his mail and fell into the road and killed by a passing car KARMA? I guess so! Ive got weapons , pack animals, camping gear ect. If I have to leave my home Ill burn it behind me. We have know how traps & snares can feed you efficiently. A brace & bit will provide water very easily. simply drill a hole into a tree Drive in a spout hang a bucket and collect the sap. the sap has sugars ect. that make it better than water. I have several smal cashes of items just in case. We have some hammock tents. The pack animals can carry a good amount of ammo &other supplies. Without them I would be in a bad way very quickly. how far could a 66 year old arthritic geezer carry even Just a AK47 and a couple thousand rounds of ammo? having know how is more importiant than a hoard of goods. Salt is a importiant necessity in a self reliant situation. its needed to preserve food & it last forever. bury it in several different locations. Now having stated all of this I really hope im dead wrong and the collapse never comes to pass. nothing wrong with being prepared for something that never happens.

It is coming. I have never had any problems shooting anybody who wants to harm me, my family, my country or my way of life. Being prepared is nothing new, I remember a story about a fellow who built an ark and put a bunch of animals in it because a flood was coming. I remember another fellow who buried seed in Egypt and later went and dug it up and survived. I am prepared for all I can prepare for. Will it be enough, I doubt it. If somebody reallly wants you dead you have no chance. I just have the mind set to take some of them with me..

Your great Grand daddy is the one who taught you to hate animals?
My Grandpa loved to sit in the yard early in the morning and listen to the birds and watch the squirrels chase each other. He was a peaceful man that loved watching wildlife.
Just Where & how do you get this wrong notion that there is hate involved? Is it hate when someone kills a mosquito,swats a fly, squashes a tick ,sprays their home for termites ect. Is that fly ,termite, tick ect. any less alive than the varmits I dispatch because those varmits have the propesenty & ability to adversely effect the creatures that are fed nutured and loved &deemed more importaint to me than those I consider varmits? Do you believe the old time Hangmen, Electric Chair operators, firing squad or the modern leathal injection doctors hated those humans they killed. I believe they are just doing their jobs. I could even do that job without letting touchy feely or hate emotions be present. Indifferent is my state. wether its pulling a weed, cutting a tree or killing a animal I raised for food. I thank the trees spirit just the same as the pig for being available for my use. I was indifferent back in the sixties also no elation no remorse. I did say a sort of prayer for their souls. I was mad & hateful at the goverment politicians army (so called superior officers) ect.and am still angry at them. All those wars then and now are and where for nothing. Im simply very dissapointed in my country & fellow citizens.

Im pretty deaf about 90% in one ear. anyone could very easilysneak up on me. My preps arent really for me. There for the grandchildren. I would like to have my DNA carried on into the future (Its very inportiant to me because of my religion) Its my desire that the Everywhere Spirit will look after their survival & spirit. As the native americans say (today is a good day to die) Im a Agnostic Fatalist who happens to believe the theory of reincarnation has merit. as well as the law of cause & effect(KARMA)

I want to provide for my family. I want them to be able to take care of themselves when I am gone. I want to instill good core values and morals into everything they do. I do not want to pass this life until I see my 8 year old grow into a young man that can handle his own. I have made peace with my maker, I just hope he has made peace with me. The future is now, plan for the worst and hope for the best..

That's true. Ron Paul is the ONLY one who would have stopped the foreign aid. I agree with Churm. This country is on the brink of destruction.

<quoted text> Im more afraid of the IRS than someonewith a gun or a lawyer. I report all income and pay my taxes. I do buy heavily in the fall to reduce income. and resell in the spring to recoup the money. Its just kicking the income down the road to the next year. Last year the drought caused a loss on the row crops. and the sales lot just swapped nickles. the scrap iron & rental property made a good profit. So I bought a big scrap inventory & enough materals to build another storage rental building.
Speaking of taxes, have you ever used Turbo Tax?
I'm tired of paying my tax preparer $100+ each year, with yearly increases, and want to try doing it myself this year.

I find that scary. Just like the millions who followed Hitlers, and other evil leaders, orders. I prefer people to follow conscience.

I don't suppose you know what a Canyon wren is? I'm wondering if they have a population of them there. I revolve my trips around what birds I'll see and/or hear. The Canyon Wren has one of the prettiest songs in the country and I haven't heard them in so long. We don't get them here. I'm considering my next birding trip and they are at the top of my list.
