Now Playing Tracks

Tonight on Animal Planet, they aired “Mermaids, The Body Found- THE NEW EVIDENCE.”
What baffles me about this is that yesterday, over in a little town called Taiji in Japan, a most bloody and gruesome event was just about to take place and is still taking place now as I type this, (I’ll tell you why this baffles me in a moment).
The annual dolphin slaughter in Taiji Japan has started early this year. I found a post on Rick O’Barry’s Facebook:
Taiji: Large pod, possibly two combined pods are now at mouth if harbor. Coast guard vessel in the cove. Can hear yelling in harbor - could be nationalists. 2013-09-01 9:15am
The slaughter and torture of hundreds (or more) innocent lives is occurring RIGHT at this moment and the network called “ANIMAL PLANET” airs a fictional documentary about mermaids.  
People often ask me, (since I’m always painting, drawing and talking about how much I love mermaids, I guess), “Jess, do you believe that documentary that aired on animal planet!?”
You know, what I can say to that is this,” If mermaids did exist, they would not be doing very well. Aside from their oceanic word becoming more and more defiled by oil spills, pollution, over fishing, and climate change, their closest friends and companions, being the Dolphins (according to that “documentary” and legend), are currently being slashed open by spears and hooks, all in the name of pure blood lust and greed of Japanese Fisheries.”  
Those fortunate enough to survive the physical trauma will be thrown into tiny shipping containers and sent over seas, some will arrive here in the U.S. where they will live the rest of their days performing in a stadium with the traumatic memories as permanent and painful as their captive existence.
…SO to put it bluntly, I don’t know if mermaids are real; if they are, I think that the greatest way to dishonor them is to air a special about fake evidence about them, during a time when a REAL LIFE ISSUE about their “companions in the sea,” that NEEDS attention, is being completely ignored.
