So like Humpty Dumpty a word means just what you want and
nothing more? Nice for you.

No. You live in America. I live here. You are not going to
breathe, drink or commune with the air or water or earth I
don't poison. I have the right. You demand a police state
to take away my rights.

I know exactly what locusts do. So what? There is no
parallel outside your mind.

Locusts have every right to be locusts. Also they are stable
you just need a longer time frame.

If you had been following this and other threads you would
have noticed all the facts are mine. But then I am not the
one making the claims. You claim that the world is being
poisoned but demand I prove it isn't. This is stupid. You
think it is, you make the claim, you prove it. So far all
we have had is your whining and nothing else. If I haven't
cited any facts I am not the only one. What I have said
time and time again is that there is no evidence for any
of your claims. Which there isn't.

Perhaps that is so. I suspect that you are too blind to
notice a fact when you see one. And of course when nuts
like you are in power you will be shooting people left
right and centre. Sad really.
