Shark Fin Soup
Chinese cuisine has more options for ingredients than any other. Complaining about the loss of one dish — shark fin soup, an endangered species harvested in a deliberately sadistic way is pathetic. Shame on those who refuse to make even the tiniest sacrifice. Their selfishness is shameful. The motive, conspicuous consumption, and bragging about one’s wealth is revolting.
CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) radio in Victoria aired a woman who claimed the practice of cutting fins off living sharks was a myth. Captain Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd Society is on the lam for protesting this very practice. I have seen all kinds of video of fishermen cutting the fins of sharks and releasing the shark alive. If you Google shark fin images, you can see for yourself.

The Other Russian Scandal
Exxon-Mobil invested most of its money in Russian oil licences. Obama applied sanctions to Russia for its attacks on the Crimea, Ukraine and Syria and for attempts to rig the US election. Putin desperately wants to get rid of the sanctions since they are costing Russia so much. So does Exxon-Mobil, because the sanctions block them from drilling any oil wells in Russia. Trump then appointed Rex Tillerson, ex-CEO of Exxon Mobil as his Secretary of State where he is optimally positioned to get the sanctions removed.
Trump never does anyone a favour without extracting one in return. My guess is it almost a sure thing that removing sanctions is quid pro quo for Putin rigging the election and for Exxon-Mobil making a magnificent campaign contribution. Putin also has to keep the hooker urination photos secret.
I further guess it highly likely that arranging this deal was what all those meetings between the Russians and Trump’s people were about.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
