Putin and the bees and the end of the world

Look, Vladimir Putin is not pissed about the bees. That is one of those demented tall tales sweeping the Left. I remember when we all took pride in not being as dumb as the Right who believed every inane story they read in an email. Now we’ve joined in on the fun. Sheesh.

Some people were wondering if this means war. If bombs will fall and missiles fly. If the world will end because the bees are dying. 

No, it won’t.

Some of the smartest people I know fall for this shit now. It blows my mind. You can get a Ph.D in I-read-it-on-the-internet-it-has-to-be-true, apparently.

Here’s the story.

Not that anybody will read it. Facebook has killed off reading. We live in an age of rumors. What a strange time this is. So inane and uninformed. Even Wikipedia is too hard to read now, apparently. All those words. Hundreds of them….

    • But tHat was the point of this whole little piece. In fact, the story I link to is the Snopes story. Not to mention call the idiotic rumor a demented tall tale in the second line, i.e., a hoax.Not sure what argument is invalid, then.
