When Obama took office, he made a promise to continue to strengthen the global moratorium on whaling.

Now, Obama is yet again about to break his word by lifting the ban on whale hunting.

He has done nothing but pat a few backs and pose for some photo ops down in the Gulf, he has increased- rather than decreased- the number of troops sent over to the Middle East, he has spent tax payers money on lavish personal trips that have involved the use of Air Force One and other military vehicles- all at the taxpayers expense.

Please don't let Obama once more get away with breaking a promise to the people of America.

Sign the petition and tell him that you support the ban on whaling.

Maybe we can't all act as bravely as such people as the Sea Shepherds crew members, but we can act to the best of our abilities to defend what is right. I believe that we are morally obligated to do so.

Please, it will only take a few moments of your time and energy, but it could save hundreds (if not thousands) of innocent whales from being indiscriminately slaughtered for the sole purpose of a lucrative and illegal whale meat industry.

As a good friend of mine has said in the past...

"One voice may be a whisper...but many become a roar."

I signed it...but I'm already a member of two diff environmental groups that send me petitions all the time. I'm not thrilled to have no choice but to add my actual home address on it, but I signed it anyway. :)

Thanks, love.

Not exactly sure why they have you sign your address on for whatever reason, but I figure I'm listed and most people have it anyway.

I'm a member of a couple of different groups out there, but I like Care2 despite the fact that they want the home addy.
