Many of our country’s trawl fisheries accidentally injure and kill
endangered sea turtles by entangling them in their massive nets.
Fortunately, there’s a Turtle Excluder Device – or TED – and it’s an
“escape hatch” that allows a sea turtle to wiggle out of the trawl net,
While some fisheries use TEDs, too many do not, and are not required to.
Help convince the government to protect these ancient creatures by
requiring TEDs in all trawl fisheries in the U.S. that operate in areas
with sea turtles.
How simple is this device...sure it may cost a few extra $ but...gosh if you have ever been scuba diving and seen a turtle gracefully swimming by...it is a wonderful experience. These creatures deserve the TED! Please TAKE ACTION NOW as I have done! http://takeaction.oceana.org/campaign.jsp?campaign_KEY=25178

A reporter in Portland Maine, interviewed John McCain about Governer Palin, and of course he could not say anything that has any substance about her....such a poor choice.
The reporter asks...."Well, you say you're sure she has the experience but again I'm just asking for an example - what experience does she have in the field of national security?"
And McCain (basically replies, had to edit out a bunch of ums and miss speaks, oh God another Bush!)....'Sure. Energy. She knows more about energy than probably anyone else in the United States of America. She is the Governor of a state where 20% of our energy supply comes from there and we all know that energy is a critical and vital national security issue. We've got to stop sending 700 billion dollars of American money to countries that don't like us very much. She's very well versed on that issue and she, uh, also represents is a Governor of a state that is right next to Russia and ah, ah, she really understands Russia and their newly aggressive behavior in the world which is also something that we have to be very concerned about.'
Here is the Video of the interview:
