Insanity: US Approves Bee Death Pesticide as EU Bans It: "Corporate politics is business as usual inside the United States, as I am once again shocked to report the EPA has sided with industry lobbyists over public health in approving a highly dangerous pesticide that the European Union recently decided to ban over fears of environmental devastation. Not only have neonicotinoid pesticides been linked repeatedly to mass bee deaths, also known as Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), but the continued use of such pesticides threatens other aspects of nature (and humans) as well."
Recruiting is the name of the game. Especially in politics, a person is recruited by professionals for as little reason as his face. Recruiting the face puts a lot of pressure on a normal person, who thinks he is being recruited for his testimony, or his brains, or something other than just his face. The likelihood of one "pretty" person being recruited over another "less pretty person" in today's media blitzed, cacophonous, rabble is not a long shot.
Such broad strokes of a critical brush beg explanation. Or does it? For you who have been recruited, why do you think it was? Was your recruiter smarter than you? Did you have some similar attribute shared with your recruiter? Was the other person "the competition," fat or balding?
Let's say you are a patron at a whore house. The whores line up for you to pick one. You are with your friends, so you feel an edge to pick out the "best" candidate for your party, eh? You are also under pressure because the "matron" doesn't have all night. What are your criteria?
- Cleanliness, background check
- stature, good bone structure
- pretty face, symmetry
- Reminds you of some one, similitudes
There you have it. That is how politicians are picked out. Can you think of other professions that are recruited this way?
So, now your politics has a face. Industry lobbyists get behind those faces. They make money less scarce for those faces. Remember that the faces still think they have reached their political office because they are smarter than you and me. So their ego's grow to out of proportion. Their faces start to swell up, flesh falls off their faces; it is painful to watch.
Back to the topic: " ... Not only have neonicotinoid pesticides been linked repeatedly to mass bee deaths, also known as Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), but the continued use of such pesticides threatens other aspects of nature (and humans) as well. (Anthony Gucciardi. May 12, 2013. LINK) ... "

Bees are dying because political recruiters are playing stink finger with egomaniacal politicians who can't help themselves.
