    Yes, you stay on this board long enough and you know exactly what some people would do or are thinking. Even Independents like you.

    This kind of thing has been ongoing for my whole life, and I can't say that it's actually done any good in all this time.

    I guess you would have also saved the Christians from Nero, while I would have sent them to the dogs, right? Why not say I would stone women too, while you are out there in la-la land.

    If they are gona eat em I really dont care. We are predators whether we like it or not. We eat pretty much anything that moves. Or not. Its called life. I am pretty sure you eat pork and beef and other meat. They aint excactly happy about being eatin either. Side note pigs are very inteligent animals and know when their number is about to be up. Some dont go quitely. They leave the world just like they came into it. Screaming. Life isnt nice or pretty. Why people get hot bothered over it is beyond me.

Why wouldn't they be declared pirates given they were flying a pirate flag?
    Because they're not actually pirates and they fly under a sovereign country's flag, not the pirate flag. That's just dumb decoration for a bunch of vegan hipsters with too large a trust fund.

    Re: US court declares Sea Shepherd pirates

    Not really pirates, terrorists are an accurate description. Frankly, I go 50/50 on this. I agree with the Japanese claim of cultural difference and the emotional attachment that many western cultures place on these animals. I'm actually quite OK with the concept of whaling as long as its thoroughly monitored to ensure it sustainability, which should be the case when harvesting any fishery or none farmed natural resource. There are whale species that have quite healthy populations.

    As far as the Japanese go, they don't always take population into consideration and they do harvest whales that don't have healthy populations. They could go a long way to target only species that have sustainable populations.

    Haven't had the opportunity to try whale meat, but would if it was of a sustainable species.

    I love it how you latched onto the boat being property, yet completely ignored that they are putting lives at risk. Keep up the good work!

    You're probably into clubbing baby seals too.
