    True, tastes similar to something between bald eagle and whooping crane.

    I doubt most of them care that Obama ate there, either. They're just using this as an opportunity to advance a cause they believe in... bring on the faux-rage.

They'd make less money if they were to take the whole of the carcass over just harvesting the fins.

    That being said, it's a pathetic practice and I for one won't encourage it. I'm not much of an animal right's activist or anything like that; but finning practices are idiotic at best and the devistation it can have on the shark population is a bit too much for my tastes.

    You didn't address the urine. When you open up a can of tuna, do you smell piss?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Well, Obama didn't order shark fin. He had dim sum, something I love to get at local outdoor markets from time to time. Yummy.

    As for shark fin, it is a horrible practice and had Obama actually ordered shark fin, I would have been very critical of him for it. In this case, any criticism of President Obama is unwarranted.

    Yeah, because the slaughter of dozens of millions of sharks each year for their fins is something that we should just turn away form.

    I support animal shelters and anti-cruelty campaigns, but I just cannot be on board with an organization like PETA. They take it too far to be credible. Besides, I found out that they euthanized animals rather than adopting them.

    I don't think that's what he was saying. I think he meant more, pick your battles (I'm sure he'll correct me if I'm wrong). Activism can be a great thing, but criticizing the president for just being in the proximity of fin soup hurts the credibility of the movement.

    Re: Obama in hot water over shark fin soup

    I agree with the sane majority on this thread.

    First, I have never and would never eat shark fin soup for all the reasons already expressed. I do not eat animal parts that were removed from a live animal, which is then left to suffer an agonizing death.

    Second, it's utterly stupid for the environmental group to use something Obama didn't do as a means to trash him.

    Third, unless we end up with some cool recipes that use legally-produced and harvested seafood, I've just wasted five minutes of my life that I'll never get back.
