Since I'm not a resident of California, I can't vote on this.

To sum up and not be a nuisance, here's what it's about:

Every year tens of millions of sharks are killed just for their fins, which are used for shark fin soup. The state Assembly has voted with overwhelming bipartisan support in favor of AB 376, a bill to ban the possession, sale, trade and distribution of shark fins in California. This critically important bill is now in the state Senate. Urge your state senator to support and vote Yes for AB 376.


Pleaaaaaase take the time to vote! :/
It will only take a second, even if you don't care about these animals would you just do it for a fellow pit monkey?

Thanks everyone!

Banning possession seems kinda silly seeing as they've already been cut off of the shark

I could have sworn this was already banned. I always wanted to try shark fin soup but the only place I've been to that made it closed because it was illegal to sell and harvest shark fins.

I'm not allowed to vote or maybe I can and I'm just not registered, can't remember anymore.
Yes, I'm from California, yes I like Hockey, no I do not like the Ducks, yes I like the Kings!

Oh yeah? Well I hate apathetic species-ists but I don't go around saying that over 70 million of them should be murdered per year, now do I?

What's the difference between killing sharks for soup and catching cod for fish and chips? Both are getting killed and both getting eaten. I see nothing wrong with killing the sharks for soup.

Shark fin soup is awesome and my great-grandfather died of a shark attack.

So **** sharks.

Damn, I'm getting trolled hard here

And thanks Andrea for voting!

this is why i hate the pit.

cant get one serious answer even when you ask nicely.

maybe if people started taking real-world shit seriously, and spent less time giving way too much of a **** about who tweeted dick pics to who, the world might not be so ****ed up.

enjoy your forever ****ed up ocean ecosystem, sharkfin soup eaters! youre ****ing up the planet for yourself and every generation to come.

The generations of the past 50 years or so will be looked at as some of the worst in history by future historians for all the harmful shit we do, if there even is a future.

come on Californians, vote up! Non californians and people who come in to troll, go **** yourselves.

yeah, sorry to all people who responded seriously, my rant was not directed at you.

its true though. everything has to be "something" now. a joke, a pun, an image macro, EVERYTHING has to be something. serious discussion is a lost art.

Is the TS a representative of the organization in the link(NRDP)? I clearly state the organization, not the OP, when referring to the "green jihad" If the OP is in fact a part of the NRDC, this thread is nothing more than spam.

Thanks again man.

Damn I WISH I represented them...

Well yeah they're not a "green jihad" group, whatever the hell that is anyways, they're based in the US. Besides how exactly is signing a petition to save animals spam?

Look man, I'm not asking for much here...if you live in Cali and support the cause then I'd appreciate it if you take a couple of minutes out of your day and hopefully help save some innocent sharks who are getting killed in great numbers out of gluttony, if you don't really support the cause and don't wish to sign the petition, then don't OK? No need to troll the thread.

However for you guys here who actually care enough to support the cause but DON'T live in Cali, then just spread the word as much as you can

Thanks to everyone who did help out though, I really appreciate it!

Most green jihad groups are based in the US, it is the methodology, idealism and unwillingness to compromise that earns them that name, not their location.

I believe they all have a sense of laziness in them. Oh, and that damn Sea Shepard is gonna get torpedoed one day. Sure what the Japanese maybe doing is illegal but those men on those "science" boats are working for a living. Most of them have families to feed. That big fat lard ass captain of the Sea Shepard needs to calm down, he's starting to sound like Charles Manson with his "God wants us to do this" junk.

Sorry I went off lol I just got done watching a show about those guys... Mega Trolls they are...

Really?!
Well of course I don't blame those guys, I mean there's a shitload of poverty in Japan they probably didn't have much of a choice, but the people running the whole thing are to blame and should be ****ing imprisoned.

See there's a moral dilemma behind all this, either I support the animals being killed, or I support people who don't wanna lose their jobs...well no offence to anyone here, and I maybe the only one who'd do this but I'd quite simply pick the animals.
I'm a terrible misanthropist like that

I never heard of that guy

AEDIT: I just looked 'em up, they seem pretty legit
I donno that much bout them tbh, and if I watch anymore whaling/seal clubbing documentaries I think I might just crack. So I'll learn more bout them some other time.
