Remember This? Yet Another Promise He Bailed on!

"As president, I will ensure that the U.S. provides leadership... including strengthening the international moratorium on commercial whaling."
- President Obama, June 2008

Who IS this person, this corporate tool extraordinaire?! Talk about a Manchurian Candidate! What a complete and utter sell-out, on every front I can think of. The Obama Administration has now chosen to support a deal that would re-open commercial whaling for the first time in over two decades.

Commercial whaling is hideously cruel, unnecessary, and completely unacceptable. That’s why this proposed deal to re-open commercial whaling is so outrageous. Isn't it bad enough that we've trashed their oceans, and made them nearly unlivable with oils spills, toxic waste, and plastic garbage?? Isn't it bad enough that we've brought many of their species to the brink of extinction?? Who the hell do we think we are, that we're somehow entitled to wreck the planet and kill anything on it, as long as it makes some fat, greedy slob a buck??!

Well, we are NOT entitled to trash the place, and the bottom line for those too ignorant to care about anything other than themselves is that what we do to the earth and its creatures we do to ourselves. We're destroying the planet and in the process destroying ourselves.

In just a few weeks, the International Whaling Commission will gather in Morocco to vote on changes to the international ban on commercial whaling. Let's send a message to this administration that they'll never forget, and one that shows them we will not be sitting by while they allow the ruination of everything on the planet.

The whales need us to speak on their behalf, on account of them not speaking human drivel and not having the typing thing down. Plus, they don't have email or stamps. But we DO, so let's get going and take a few minutes to save thousands of amazing, intelligent beings from slow, agonizing deaths! Get busy, you - don't make me come over there, you know how I get...
