So many issues in this world and this is the topic that gets so heated on SPCnet? Oh lord...
' Yao Ming urges people not to consume shark fin soup while he serves them on his wedding day'
Maybe he got them from the same 'legal licensed stores' as you
'Domino Effect? Chain Reaction??
Society will adjust to it accordingly. No need to worry and enjoy your life. If you want to be a second/third class citizen and listen to great speeches from celebrities like Al Gore and Yao Ming, you are entitle to it. However, their great speeches don't work on me. The more they preach about stop consuming shark fin, the more I am willing pay and the more I am consuming'
Sure society will adjust. Doesn't mean shit though, it's still one amazing species that's lost and possibly another few dozen getting crazy close to extinction because the downfall of 1 species does have a huge impact on the entire ecosystem. Watch more discovery channel pumpkin, less FOX News.
'do realized that the goverment is not perfect. It's not my fault that the shark fin I get from the stores with license came from shark finning. It's the people who finning the sharks commit crime, not the shark fin consumers. I do not violate any law. No law enforcement in the world can do anything to me about it. It's not the consumers responsibility to verify how the commercial products were made'
Guess why people fin sharks? Because there;s demand. Why is there demand? Because borderline rich asshats like you with your '2nd/3rd class citzens' like to be all fancy pretending they're bigshots because they can afford sharkfin, which honestly is quite tasteless on it's own except for a very little small fragrance and taste of seafood. Basically your paying a small fortune for the ingredients of the soup, which are pretty much the same ingredients as 'suan la tang' depending on the region your in except your paying a crapload more just for the tasteless sharkfin which might as well get replaced with vermicelli and soem seaweed for the taste and you wouldn't taste a thing.
'This is completely different issue. You should post it in a new thread if you wanted'
It does as she was using this to enforce her previous argument, which you even quoted and put it in bold.
Would somebody be so kind and explain to me how you guys can quote in this shiny fancy blocks?
