Whale Wars.....The TV Show

5 posts in this topic

OH Boy!!

After enjoying a nice Friday off doing a little hunting and last minute cleaning I got suckered into watching this new show on animal planet called whale wars. All I can say is I hope one of those idiots falls off a boat. Can't they find any other way to spend their lives??

I saw the promo's for the show. It looked like a hugger show to me.

I watched one episode. The captin is a nut-job and it is obvious why Green Peace gave him the boot. I definitely don't agree with their methods.

I watched the two episodes on last night as well. I think this people have a good cause, but they are nutty. Boarding ships in the high sea? They are lucky they arent getting shot and killed. Especially in the Antarctic Ocean. All these people have to do is fall over board and those water will kill them within minutes. I dont have an issue with them harassing ships, but boarding is another issue. There are too many incidents of high seas pirates lately.

The back story along the lines of this show, I learned while doing a natural resources study in Australia. The oceans around Australia within its territorial waters are rich fisheries. The Australians strict fishing regulations within those waters to ensure sustainability. Fishing fleets from other countries have always been illegally entering these waters without proper authorization and they fail to follow Australian regulation. The Japanese fishing and whaling fleets are the worst offenders. There has always been tension over the way the Japanese having been illegally raping the Australian waters.

I'm not sure how the Japanese whaling fleet plays into this but I understand why Australians would go to the lengths seen in this show.

I saw a bit of it the other day and concluded they are nuts, but maybe the nuts are the only ones bold enough to keep these nuts on the other end of the spectrum from taking every last whale in the ocean? I dont know.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
