“I'll risk the vilification here and say, hey, try it. Whale is pretty tasty. In fact, it's a lot like that other large mammal we eat plenty of. Reading the article carefully (key word here, folks) shows us that there is an abundance of whales in Norwegian waters and the quota has a negligent effect on them. When I explain to non-hunters why I hunt, I like to use the following argument: harvesting an animal in the wild, be it a deer, bison, whale or whatever you prefer to have on the table (I include foraging for mushrooms in here as well) the animal has led a natural life, and is generally unaware until the very last minute that its life is over. Modern methods of hunting (and whaling) are as humane as possible, and there isn't a hunter around (excluding Sarah Palin) who does not treat this as a solemn responsibility. Compare to the horror shows we have seen here on HP of US slaughterhouse violations and farm abuses, diseased and down cows being dragged by the underpaid an dehumanized workers to terrifying deaths in filthy and inhumane conditions. You don't want to eat whale? Fine, don't eat it. Let those who do enjoy their traditions as long as there are those to uphold them.”

“Whales know when they are being hunted and killed - case of the whale ship Essex. It is not humane, it is not even sport with all the hi tech equipment. The environment is contaminated. That fresh fish - natural life - sorry, the oceans are contaminated with mercury and other poisons.”

“The $5000 is a fine for not providing health care. If he provides a health plan, he avoids the fine. Reducing employee hours and effectively forcing htem into multiple part time jobs i a repub dream. As blue collar labor becomes more dependent on having two or three jobs to feed the family, labor is less easily organised and therefore easier to exploit.

if only they had extended medicare to all, and come up with a national health plan like here in Norway....Oh wait. I forgot. We're the wealthiest nation on the planet and we're SOCIALIST! How'd that happen?”

“Well,you have yourselves to thank. Years of wasteful car culture and an idea that gas is (and should be) a cheap commodity that will last forever, an unwillingness to reduce emissions and the usual kowtowing to the big three. I drive a Skoda Superb Greenline. A 1.6 turbo diesel with particulate filter and catalytic converter. It is larger than a VW Passat and we average 64 mpg. Why does this car get such great mileage and have space for a family of five plus a Labrador? BECAUSE IT HAS TO!!!! Fuel prices are astronomical here in Europe, because we realise that we must reduce our dependancy on oil, reduce emissions and reduce the impact on the environment. The worst part? I'm paying $8.50 a gallon and GM, Ford and Chrysler can still get away with building Mustangs and SUVs that get 20 mpg. They can build these cars, they just don't want to. 34 mpg by 2016...get real. Think of the economic benefit of developing new technologies, instead of using the same basic designs from 30 years ago?”

Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson Agrees With Newt Gingrich, Says He Would Send Blacks Back 'To The Plantation'

“The entertainment industry would be great,too. I hear they do really good song and dance numbers. Where do idiots like this come from? A lack of work ethic is not confined to African Americans, and Icertainly don't see a link to skin color. But hey, what do I know. as for Newt's abso-fing-lutely brilliant idea (where o where is the sarcasm key) that 30 black kids could do the job of one janitor, let's take a look here: Said janitor, a highly skilled, highly educated employee of the school system probably makes, oh say, $35,000 a year. Max. So, like $17.50 and hour. Split that between 30 kids and you can open a sneaker factory in China. That will really teach them character and work ethic. Obviously, all these inner city kids would be lining up to clean toilets, rather than sell drugs, since character is SO much more appealing to a 15 year old than a car.”
