    I find it hard to believe that some of you here don't think that an endangered speces is not worth the "effort" to preserve. It's not difficult... just eat something else.
    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.

    name one useful thing an extinct species has done recently
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Endangered whale? Not one iota. I guess I am a person of principal.

    There is a huge difference between not eating all of your fries. Potatoes will not go extinct.

    If everyone ate the whale meat that was presented to them, then the demand goes up.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    "whale farm" sounds like a bad orgy.

    Personally I think that they should encourage better farming methods and allow the population to replenish, but it isn't my call. Oh, and I do know people who have tried whale meat of other varieties and they said it's not that great, kinda gamey and really fatty, I was just tweaking the more animal rights crowd prone here.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
