Friday August 5, 2011, 4:17 pm realistic. Obama does not care one iota about whales in Iceland no more than he cares about people here in the US with no jobs, kids going hungry, our cities falling apart...he cares for nothing but himself. Don't waste your time with petitions, as noble as they may be...they go nowhere. This person sitting in the White House Oval Office does not give a damn. He will do whatever he wants and no one can stop him.

Signed the petition, GLADLY. Now, if we can shut down Japan as well, but I think Mr. Obama is going to take "baby steps" with this.''

Janet, you made the same silly comment in another discussion about this. WHAT is your proof of that remark? Back it up, or don't say such a thing. Obama has nothing to do with SSCS, and never tried to shut them down. Paul Watson is Canadian, the Steve Irwin sails under the flag of another country, and their home port is in Australia. Obama has done nothing BUT call for a ban on international whaling. Please read the facts and get them straight.

Joan Freda, pretty foolish comment considering Mr. Obama has been literally HELPLESS against the G.O.P. in getting any legislation passed. He's been HAMSTRUNG since taking office, and if you've followed the recent budget proposals in Congress, that should be obvious.

"It is just like man's vanity and impertinence to call an animal dumb because it is dumb to his dull perceptions. Heaven is by favor; if it were by merit your dog would go in and you would stay out. Of all the creatures ever made he (man) is the most detestable. Of the entire brood, he is the only one...that possesses malice. He is the only creature that inflicts pain for sport, knowing it to be pain. The fact that man knows right from wrong proves his intellectual superiority to the other creatures; but the fact that he can do wrong proves his moral inferiority to any creature that cannot."
Mark Twain
