    Still Soylent Green? Does this movie ever end? It was the strawberries. That’s where I had them.

    Eesh….. are you off-topic.
    .
    This is about the over-fishing of several species of fish out in the Atlantic. I’m just glad that Spiny Lobsters are under Florida’s rules, or they’d be extinct right now. (Florida has very strict rules about when, which gender and what length said lobster must be when taken — just to prevent over-harvesting of said critter.)

    I just wish that Americans didn’t have such a palate for fish until we can clean up the pollution that we Humans have dumped out into the Sea.

    USDA came out last week saying children should not eat more than 2 servings of albacore tuna per MONTH due to mercury content. If you look at Google Maps images of the world and zoom in on the shore lines of oil producing areas off the coast of Africa and the Middle East, you can clearly see the sheen of oil discoloring the water and contaminating the fishing areas there. As the Dolphins said…“Goodbye, and thanks for all the fish.” I only add…“while they lasted.”

    It’s odd that the USDA has to issue guidelines against eating too much fish (because of the bio-accumulated mercury) and yet we complain that the restrictions on fishing are too strict.

    That darned nanny state, always interfering with people’s lives.

    Yes, oil leaks to the surface naturally as well. However, it is off shore near oil fields and in waters where oil wells are prevalent you see the oil sheens of which I speak. Bad things occur in nature, but man can add to those bad things with irresponsible behaviors.

    You are a fine American, NeoconMan.


    Have you ever read the book “Spartacus” by Howard Fast? In it, Batiatus was given responsibility for disposal of the bodies of the crucified slave-army. He sold them in bulk to Rome’s sausage-makers (hey, his gladiatorial school had gone under, and he deserved some recompense). It was of course unthinkable that these sausages be served to Roman citizens, but it was considered good enough for the provinces…

    Why anyone would participate in the cruel environmental destruction involved with fish and other animals when they don’t need to in order to survive is beyond comprehension.

    ‘Cause they taste good?


    Life consumes life at every level, and I don’t see the simple fact of human omnivoracity as a moral question. “Your worm is your only emperor for diet. We fat all creatures else to fat us, and we fat ourselves for worms.”


    If you can make a compelling argument that lions and tigers and bears (and eagles and sharks and otters and foxes and Tasmanian Devils and frogs and dogs and baboons and hedgehogs and bats and preying mantises…oh my!) should (let alone could) be converted to vegetarianism, I’d be willing to listen and perhaps I’d agree that homo sapiens should not be exempt. But I don’t see that it makes a damn bit of difference whether the sheep in the fold is eaten by the ravening wolf or by the shepherd (at least, not to the sheep), so don’t interrupt me while I’m eating my bacon double cheeseburger.
