When the superstitious start seeing signs in nature:

With the repeal of “don’t ask don’t tell,” I am hopeful that this will move the LGBT community closer to having the same rights as everyone else; however, I can just hear the religious nuts saying: “the cats are now sleeping with dogs, and now dead fish in the waters, and dead birds are falling out of the sky everywhere - the end times must be near – repent, repent, repent!” LOL While I’ll simply be trying to figure out how to change the blood back into water (I’ll bet there will be a big market for water).

From the Examiner:

Dead Birds and Fish:

While officials in Arkansas and Louisiana scramble to determined what caused 4,500 red-winged blackbirds, starlings and grackles to fall out of the sky, officials in Sweden announced Wednesday, Jan.5 that about 100 dead birds have been found there.

The birds fell near Falkoping, a city near Skovde.

"We do not know what the cause is," Skovde police commander Tomas Ahlgren said.

While usually not given mention, reports of mass bird deaths are now surfacing and the public is taking notice.

According to the U.S. Geological Service, 90 mass bird deaths have occurred between June and December 2010, including the recent incidents in the United States.

Reports also show that a parasite killed 1,000 birds in Minnesota and Houston, Texas between Sept. 6 and Nov. 26 of last year.

Biologists also do not know why approximately 100,000 drum fish washed up on the Arkansas River this week.

Seriously, what in the "hell" is going on with these birds?
