  • The Age of Outrage



    Basically, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson outraged animal rights people when he posted some pictures with his family at an aquarium.

    Yeah. I have some friends who are,um, over the top a bit. I do understand the process of their feelings, but sometimes those feelings obviously get in the way of their sense.

      I had to quit a "discussion" group for it getting ridiculous. It was basically a bash board directed at men, whites and Trump.

            I see no problems with most aquariums. Many of them are filled with rescue animals who are recovering from injuries. They are staffed with trained vets and marine biologists who care for the animals and release them back into the wild when they can. The care in aquariums has also helped several species grow their populations up again and saved them from the endangered list.

            I do have a problem with environmental and animal rights zealots. Many let their emotions rule over common sense or science. One of the rescue groups in my area was convincing high school students to "rescue" dogs by having the kids break into homes and take the dogs while the owners were at work. Problem was the dogs weren't abused...just rare breeds that were then being sold to someone who wanted that breed of dog. The rescue shelter got busted when some of the teens got caught and spilled the beans.

            My sister has a membership at the Georgia Aquarium. She takes her kids there frequently and they love it. I don't have a problem with fish in an aquarium, but I have mixed feelings about intelligent animals like sea lions and whales. If they are kept in social groups, similar to how they live in the wild, I think they are better able to cope with captive conditions.

            Regarding The Rock enjoying a visit with his family, that's fine with me.
