Hey Muggy -- right on target!
Ever look up and see those planes leaving sky-long trails of pollution in the upper atmosphere? I bet nobody figures they have anything to do with anything, eh? Yeah, it is what it is except nobody wants to take responibility or accept the reality. You're so right! Global warming is very real. As you said: too bad the 'left side' of the spectrum doesn't get it.

Alan-- great article. You can find your answers to why this phenomenon is happening by searching "Monsanto bees" and "Natural News" for pertinent articles on the subject. You might be both surprised and frightened by what you find.

One such article points out that Monsanto bought out the leading bee research firm after being implicated in bee colony collapse.

Another article reveals that Poland beekeepers kicked Monsanto out of the country, successfully banning bee-killing GM corn, thus saving the bee colonies.

So, who is the likely culprit?
What is the connection between Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) and genetic modified crops?

Plausible answer: Monsanto's MON810.
MON810 is a genetically-modified (GM) variety of maize (corn) that produces its own built-in Bt insecticide in every kernel.

It was reported that many countries in Europe officially banned the 'frankenseeds' but not the USA. Europe's bees are coming back while our bees are dying.

When bees die, so do our crops.
Without pollination from bees, our crops will not grow, we will have no food, we and our society will surely witness our own Colony Collapse Disorder on a human scale.

So, Saratoga's useful socialist idiots have managed to chip away yet another bit of liberty from the law abiding citizenry. It reminds me of Brandon Smith's story about ants at a picnic. Picture a hive of ants lurking in the grass around a bountiful picnic basket you worked very hard to procure. Now, one ant snatches a single crumb and races away, and you think to yourself that losing that one crumb is not such a sacrifice. A few more ants pilfer crumbs, and you shrug it off. A dozen more arrive, and you start to worry a little but are still too lazy to pull out the Raid. The rest of the hive sees your apathy and attacks, gobbling everything in a swarm of single-minded destruction. Left with nothing, you sit dumbfounded and hungry, wondering where you went wrong. The truth is, you went wrong with the first ant.

This was no permit-holding, law abiding citizen caught in a SNAFU. This was a criminal with an unregistered, illegal firearm. Crediting the SAFE Act is pure political theater. We should all thank the Troy Police Dept. for doing their jobs. They are good men. Godspeed.

This is indeed appalling. I admired Sen. Greg Ball's stand on the issues but this statement of his about torturing Americans is over the top.

Did he forget a step like PROVING the suspect is GUILTY before passing judgement? Have we no procedural laws for such things? We do not torture. Shame on him. The suspect (now in the hospital suffering heavily in critical condition) is a bona fide American citizen.

Should we just scrap the Constitution or what? He should resign. This is a nation of laws and Sen. Ball obviously did not read the constitution and is in direct violation of his oath of office. Maybe it would be in Sen. Ball's best interest to just resign and join the CIA.

And lastly...what if the Boston Marathon Bombing was a false flag event? Many independent media outlets like Yahoo/Atlantic Wire and Global Research Centre are now finally asking the question regarding government involvement.

A wonderfully thought provoking piece by independent journalist & blogger James Corbett ( exposes the very questions we should all be asking: In who's best interest should these events be happening? Who stands to profit? And are we really to believe that two brothers were solely responsible for the Boston bombing? And what about all those 'contractors' and military types mulling around the site with back packs?

What happened to the Saudi nationals identified at the scene? Senator Ball should be asking those very questions and not advocating for the brutal torture of suspected American citizens. Is torture now legal in the United States? Pray to G-d not! It's just not Jewish, it is not Christian, it's not least not in the America I once knew (before 9-11-01).

G-d save the republic.

Susan Steer is barking up the wrong tree. Saratoga was founded on guns. Guns are an integral part of Saratoga's history from the American Revolution through he Civil War through the Prohibition up to today. The 2nd Amendment is not negotiable. She and her followers should educate themselves and get aquatinted with guns and understand their personal fear to that end and deal with it. A friend told me about this group: Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership...I read and reviewed their material. Very informative. Maybe these gun control folks should heed their advice.

What a great teacher! What's wrong with a little controversial assignment to spark some critical thinking in otherwise atrophied 10th grader brains? Good for him! But quote another post: Blaming JEWS for the problems of Nazi Germany? Ha-ha-ha! That's like giving
kids an assignment to have them explain how the MAFIA was responsible
for the problems of Fascist Italy or Catholics for being responsible for
the Spanish Inquisition and collapse of Iberian autocracy or maybe like
assigning the students to write about blaming the Redshield Banking
Cartel (aka Rothchilds)...our very own Federal Reserve System for the
collapse of the U.S. economy (again). There's a little truth in all of
it. But make no mistake about it: One does not criticize G-d's chosen. To quote Woody Allen: If you so much as even think about
finding fault with those people watch out...they'll start writing
letters! And as Vince Lombardi once said: The best defense is a strong
offense. -Just food for thought kids.
