    I like soup.
    Most of them contain some sort of animal product.

    I think it's barbaric to slice the fins off and throw the still alive shark back in the drink.

    I'm not against hunting sharks at all provided there is some kind of conservation monitoring going on, and if you are going to take one of them you should use as much of the animal as possible.

    It's common hunting respect, nothing to do with lefty-righty nonsense.

    The Creator endowed man with certain inalienable rights which we hold to be self-evident, such as the right to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and to cut off a shark's fins and toss it back into the ocean to die a slow and painful death.

    Why do they throw the sharks back? I pay big money for shark appetizers at the bar. Haul those bad mothers on in, cause I'm hungry for shark.
