Don't Let Bayer Overturn the Ban on Bee-Killing Pesticides

Bayer has just sued the European Commission to overturn a ban on the pesticides that are killing millions of bees around the world. A huge public push won this landmark ban only months ago -- and we can't sit back and let Big Pesticide overturn it

Oh, how unlovely to know that corporate greed personified is suing the European Economic Union to overturn the ban on pesticides. Obviously the inability to rack up even more profits is so wounding and injurious to these companies that humanity must bow down and scrape to their 'needs'.

Can we imagine the CEO's going home at night, famished - indeed, they are now so undernourished from the lack of profits flowing into their coffers by the act of the 'selfish' EEU that they can hardly eat and sustain themselves. Poor famished CEO's, doesn't your heart just bleed for them?

Denying them their daily bread that was lavishly spread with honey before the ban meant they could no longer to eat and put bread on their tables...the very honey that may one day be no more because these companies insist on their greed...along with Monsanto.

"Bayer and Syngenta, two of the world's largest chemical corporations..." So 'comforting' to know that Bayer also produces aspirin. Hope they don't mix up the pesticides and aspirin ingredients...

Sorry, I meant the European Commission, not the EEU..the EU...I am being distracted by the cat that owns me...she wanted some attention and of course one knows better than to ignore the cat that owns you.

Why are we fighting Syria over chemical warfare when we should be fighting Bayer, Monsanto, fracking, et al. If we are against chemical weapons, let's end it here first.

N & S! How is it other smaller companies get fines for killing bees but large ones with more $ and power get away with it. Sad.
