joie de vivre - "Joy of living"

“Closing your eyes isn't going to change anything.
Nothing's going to disappear just because you can't see what's going on.
In fact, things will even be worse the next time you open your eyes.
That's the kind of world we live in.
Keep your eyes wide open.
Only a coward closes his eyes.
Closing your eyes and plugging up your ears won't make time stand still.”
― Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

Okay, SO… SOPA IS BACK GUYS! AGAIN! But this time, only United States citizens can sign this thing this time! And we don’t have much time until it must be signed!
The United States thinks it can be in ultimate control of the internet, censoring our internet and removing the rights of everything that we know and love about DeviantArt, Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, and even YouTube! Don’t let it pass guys! Ban together! Spread the word as QUICKLY as possible! Your vote DOES make a difference if you are a United States citizen! Sign the petition, tell your friends, neighbors, friends, and even family members right away! We only have until March the 17th!!! Which is only 5 DAYS AWAY!

If you aren’t totally quaking in your boots at the news of millions of bees dead, yet again, you’re nuts.


this should be concerning a lot more people than it is
not only because bees are one of the most important animals in the world and their job is a lot more than gathering honey but also because they are what scientists refer to as an “indicator species”
this means that when their populations start dwindling and then rapidly dropping, humans need to watch their shit because that means that environmental factors are too difficult for THEM to live in, so it might be difficult for US to live in, too. bees basically act as an indication that humans have a lot to worry about and when they start dying like this it deserves a lot more than a few headlines.


last year my biggest worry was the steep decline in bee population and apparently thats not about to change anytime soon. people have told me to my face that they think its strange I’m so concerned for the bees. read this you selfish fucks


Get excited, motherfuckers.  Without bees, we will die off.  Bayer and Monsanto continue to produce the chemicals that have been proven to kill them, and the government has their backs.  Bees pollinate 30% of our food in the US and we are passing legislation to PROTECT the scumbags responsible for killing them.
I preach this shit to everyone who will listen and I always get “WAAAAH I HATE BEES THEY STING AND THEY ARE BIG MEANIES!” but think about your future life without kiwis, cranberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, peaches, sunflowers, cotton, apples, plums, pears, mustard, celery, peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, beans, cherries, melons, turnips, canola oil, alfalfa, soybeans, lemons, oranges, and I could go on forever.
Bees are amazing creatures who are responsible for the comfortable lives we lead in this country and we cannot sustain and feed our population without them.


Alright you guys, there’s a good amount of notes on this but it’s only making us aware of the problem, not telling us what we can do to help. We can do something to help and YOU CAN HELP, YES THAT MEANS YOU. ALL YOU NEED IS DIRT, A FEW BUCKS, AND A MOMENT OF YOUR TIME TO MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE, LITERALLY. 
Plant flowers that bees like and that attract them.
Bees prefer flowers that are blue, purple, and yellow. Choose flowers that bloom successively over the spring, summer, and fall seasons such as coreopsis, Russian sage, or germander. They especially love clover! Other plants include sage, salvia, oregano, lavender, ironweed, yarrow, yellow hyssop, alfalfa, honeywort, dragonhead, echinacea, bee balm, buttercup, goldenrod and English thyme. Buy seeds online.
GET RID OF THE PESTICIDES!!
If pesticides are killing off the bees so easily, what do you think it’s doing to us? The EPA says studies have shown pesticides can cause birth defects, nerve damage, and cancer. There are other ways to get rid of pests in the garden than using chemicals. Organic Garden Pests shows you how to keep off the bugs the organic way.
Give the bees a free home!
Giving bees a “bee block” alone is a huge load off their backs! You can buy homes here or  You can even build your own. 
Please, if you have already reblogged this, reblog this is again with what I have posted onto it so you know what you can do to help. We can make a difference.

Why isn’t this more of an issue?
Like why is our entire existence at stake and all anyone wants to talk about on the news is the “TWERKING PHENOMENON”.


RE-reblogging for all the helpful info added.


Boosty boosty


The European response: “Holy crap, this might be really serious.”  A two year ban starting Dec. 1, 2013.
The U.S. response: Corporate interests rally to protect their profits. “Nothing to see here, Americans.  Keep watching TV.”

!!!THIS IS REALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT!!!

Thanx Monsanto!

Please take a moment to reblog any or all of the following links, and let people know what’s going on in our country. There’s a media blackout and these things are not getting out. We NEED to get them outside Venezuelan blogs and out to the world.
