Thank you for taking action to support the shark fin ban in Texas and the Shark Stewards project of Turtle Island Restoration Network. With continued support during the year, we can work together to pass this legislation and build our constituency in Texas.

I KNEW I could use this post comment again !!!!!
I can use it everyday probably. :-((
All I have to do is emphasize different words. (And, I tweaked a couple of words.)
Oh and thanks for reminding me that I left out a few selections. It should be more complete for future use now.

HOWDY !!!!!!
Welcome to Texas !!!!!!
Please leave your ideas of fairness, empathy, logic/facts/science, ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS, ideas of freedom and civil rights, honesty, openminedness and acceptance, feminism, health care...
You may now proceed to your mindless/heartless servitude/enslavement in Texas.

Thank you ever so much, Sara, for giving us the opportunity to help the sharks and the Texans who have a heart and a soul. I'm ashamed to say that I grew up in Texas. I know what happened there. The state was gerrymandered by the friends of the preceding President. They also have been taking over this country state by state, and have become more brazen in their tactics. If you listen to MSNBC, you know what is going on. If not, then you must. The destruction of our planet and our country would be complete if they succeed. (S, N, R, & T)

There is currently a bill in the Canadian House of Commons, to prevent the import of shark fins into Canada.I hope it passes and becomes law.

Despite the bad press about shark fin, there is still a surprising amount of support for keeping shark fin on the menus. The shark fin supporters seem to be digging in their heels to keep it available. The cruelty thing doesn't seem to bother them, and they don't believe the comments about certain shark species being devastated by the finning practice. I'm not sure what it takes to get through to them.
