About my Blog

Quick Note: I only link to wikipedia articles that I have checked out and are used only for reference material.
Welcome to my blog, Solomon's Conservative Wisdom. The name of this blog comes from my middle name and the historical & biblical figure King Solomon. This group is dedicated to conservatism, and I invite all conservatives to join, I really don’t mind non-conservatives joining. All I expect is a respectful debate. So tell everyone you know.

First about orcas, they are commonly known as Killer Whales, (scientific name Orcinus Orca), they are a member of the order Cetacean and family Delphinidae, while called "Killer Whales" Orcas are actually related closest to dolphins and porpoises then Whales. I prefer to call them Orcas simply because I like that name better.
Now as to the attack, see the story here, Whale Kills Trainer as Horrified Crowd Watches, O'Rilly's usage of Moby-Dick as some kind of legitimate material on whale attacks, even if he was being farcical (by the way look at what I wrote in the previous section), it was over the top, and as to the orca's previous history of attacks, this isn't the same kind of animal as a dog, wolf, shark, lion, or bear, this orca, Tilikum, it wasn't trying to eat her or some other thing these orcas have been in captivity for some time, the first incident with Tilikum and some other orcas sound like they were playing, the second incident was someone who had visited SeaWorld the previous day, stayed after the park closed, and evaded security to enter the orca tank and was found dead the next day, he apparently died of a combination of hypothermia and drowning, so you can't blame the orcas on that one, and until we get the full story I am personally with holding judgment on Tilikum. And as to the issue of ending the showing of Orcas, this is just O'Rilly's standard knee jerking to something again, and while I am thinking about it why didn't you immediately call for every one with a pilot's licence be immediately checked to make sure they don't go flying planes in to building, and lets restrict who can get a pilot's licence as well! I am sure that will work just as well as your idea of ending the showing of orcas.
And since I am this subject let me stress my opinion as to Humanity using animals, I actually don't have a problem with it in general, I don't really care how the cow, pig, turkey, or chicken died to get to my plate, all I care about is if the animal was healthy when slaughtered and is cleanly slaughtered. As to pets obviously we don't want people abusing pets, Michael Vick is a good example, several dangerous individuals supposedly started out killing animals, but California's plan for listing animal abusers like they do sex offenders is just outrageous. The first time someone is seriously injured or killed by E.L.F. or A.L.F. because of this list, I and several other conservatives will be there, pointing how we warned that this would end up becoming their hit list. I really don't see a value to a public list like this. There are some pretty sick individuals out there and a large number of them won't be found on some list.
I will probably expand on my views latter, but for now this is it.
