Save the Bees!

*Grabs soapbox.*

Look folks – the insanely greedy corporations are going to burn this world to the ground and not give 2 shits about you while they do it.

Asia already has to pay people to MANUALLY pollinate their trees/plants because their bees have died. Can you imagine how tedious this is? How much it costs?

I know some people don’t care about bees and most of their apathy stems from ignorance. Not everyone wants to sit around and research bees… But guess what – I do!

Allow me to summarize – the bees are dying because of a pesticide used on GMO corn. Who makes the GMO corn? Monsanto. Who has lobbyists to influence their “special interest”? Monsanto. Guess who votes in favor on Monsanto policies? Republicans AND Democrats. Guess who pays the lobbyists for companies like Bayer that make the pesticide? Precisely. It’s a big ass circle. More like a hamster wheel that we keep running on.

Heads up folks – those people don’t care about you or I. It’s clear from the way BOTH parties vote on any “aid” to help veteran/children/women/disabled/elderly. And then compare it to how they vote on their own bonuses, campaign funding limits, and even shut down the government. All on our dime.

They don’t care. They are happy as long as we are happy eating crappy food, sitting in front of the TV, and watching the Khadershians.

If you give a damn about yourself, your children, and your future… wake up! Start raising Hell!

Our population on earth is over 7 billion and still growing… imagine feeding that many people. Imagine having to pay people to manually pollinate every single flower to grow our food. Imagine how much organic food would cost!

Part of our ecosystem is being eradicated due to greedy, selfish corporations and we’re all too busy fighting with each other over gay marriage and Obamacare to notice.

Wake up! Do your own research, watch a Netflix documentary, talk to your friends, spread the information you find… before it’s too late.
