    A "war" I can finally get behind?

    There's a new show coming up on Animal Planet starting Friday called "Whale Wars", documenting the evil and nefarious commies known as Greenpeace (new aspect as "Sea Shepherd"). As you all know, I support such horrible things as Saving the Whales, the Trees, the Owls and all that other "silly stuff" that gets in the way of progress & accumulation of holy capital.

    Anyhoo, I'm looking forward to the series and I'm sure some of you aren't!

    I'm going to record it I can't watch it when my dad is around he's not to fond of greenpeace type things and he thinks it's ok for whalers to kill them I can't agrue with him or he'll explode he has anger issues and he might punch another hole in the wall or another one in a door.

    Here's some information on them
    http://www.highnorth.no/library/move...d/se-sh-re.htm

    1992: Sea Shepherd makes unsuccessful attempts at ramming three Costa Rican fishing vessels. In a written complaint to the local authorities the fishermen report that the Sea Shepherd crew shot at them with bullets containing a red substance, hitting two of them and causing them great pain.
    Hmm bullets containing red substance sounds like a paint gun or something else I dunno..

    Here's some information on the ocean the whalers are in..
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Souther...hale_Sanctuary

    Japan has continued to hunt whales inside the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary because its whaling is done in accordance with a provision in the IWC charter permitting whaling for the purposes of scientific research
    Oh come on Scientific research!?

    I hope the Sea Shepherd is successful in their mission I'd hate to see the whalers win..

    Hooray for the eco-terrorists!! Hooray!!!!! You guys rock!!

    errr. . . . . I mean "freedom fighters". . . . . ummmm, "insurgents"??

    Or whatever title makes us feel good about ourselves is fine I guess...

    Where do third-world Costa Rician fishing families get off trying to live off the sea?? Everyone know that animals and the environment come before humans anyway. sheesh!!

    Wow Blue, I'm sorry you have to live with that... How much longer are you going to be stuck at home? My old man was an angry alcoholic who acted the same way. Since he's quit drinking for a decade + now, he's much better to be around but still has some of that irrational anger over other peoples opinions and silly little things he can't do anything about. I've finally overcome my own anger problems that had stuck with me since high school and my dads alkie days. Now I do my best not to let anything phase me into anger anymore - not even Fryster - lol! j/k Fry!

    My trick is to make a joke out of something that bothers me. The more outrageous and sarcastic the joke gets the more the topic actually bothers me. But it seems that if I can laugh in the face of something that I don't like, it doesn't "get my goat" like it used to and the irritant is immediately forgotten instead of becoming a part of me (a grudge) that I have to drag around. Not only does being angry all the time make life miserable it's bad for your health (heart, blood pressure, digestion, etc). It does get worse for you the older you get too I've found out. If you find yourself getting into the same rages as the old man does, start working on that stuff now before it gets much harder to tame.

    ...Sorry none of that was really even near "on topic".

    Well since he's been a alcoholic for a long time and he's been really depressed since his dad died 10 years ago or so I forgot, last year both my white boxer and my mom's boxer died from old age and my mom's from leukemia which that put him over the edge he stoped working and was drinking at 11:00 am till he went to sleep.

    He's been taking pills for his depression which it started to make him get even worse where he lost his ballance almost fell off the deck luckily my mom caught him the same time he tried going downstairs, but he fell down luckily he didn't hurt himself bad and a few months ago he took about 70 or so of his pills I forgot what kind of pills, but they don't mix well with booze after that my mom finally put her foot down and told him if he were to drink any beer or any type of alchohol he'd have to leave or we'll leave it's been months since he's drank anything he started out begging my older brother for his beer, but he's finally over it, but he's still not 100% better he's still really depressed and he bugs my mom pretty much every day to get a puppy saying he'll be normal if we get one thing is we don't have enough money for one or the time to train and take care of it yet, plus he said he'd be much happier and better if we moved into the house we are in now thing is all he does now if sleep, eat and goes to the garage to smoke he never goes outside to enjoy the 16 acre yard he wanted so much only me, my mom, and my older brother enjoys it.

    ::On Topic::
    It'll be showing tomarrow can't wait to see I agree their methods are a bit drastic, but this stuff defending the whales is ok I dunno I'm just against this stuff it seems kinda hard to believe they need all those whales for research..

    The fact the whales are eaten afterwards might give you some clues about the validity of the 'research'.

    documenting the evil and nefarious commies known as Greenpeace (new aspect as "Sea Shepherd"). As you all know, I support such horrible things as Saving the Whales, the Trees, the Owls and all that other "silly stuff" that gets in the way of progress & accumulation of holy capital.
    I'm not too keen on GreenPeace's global warming angle, but I think your post sounds like tripe (no pun intended).
