'A Californian congressmen has just introduced a law to make it illegal to keep orcas in captivity. This could change everything — but SeaWorld is already mounting a vicious campaign to defeat this congressman's brave move. We need to tell the State of California that the public won't accept SeaWorld's imprisonment of orcas any longer.'
Enact the Orca Welfare and Safety Act to make it illegal to hold orcas in captivity for performance or entertainment purposes

No thank you. I mean really? What is this going to accomplish? Soon they’ll want to make it illegal to hold the dolphins in captivity. Then it’ll move onto the zoos. It’s stupid. Animal rights activists irk me. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like animal cruelty (like when people bash their pets heads in), but I find nothing wrong with establishments like SeaWorld, zoos, circuses, Calgary Stampede, etc. As long as the animals are getting proper care (food, shelter, veterinary care, etc) let them be.
The Shamu show is HUGE. In fact, it’s SeaWorld’s most popular attraction. They’re known for Shamu. People travel from all over to see the Shamu show. Having a law that makes it illegal to hold those orcas in captivity would hurt SeaWorld in the big scheme of things. In fact, there are probably more people who support SeaWorld than there are trying to enact this bull crap law.
