Action Pacted Wednesday--Hump Day Action

today's action Help Stop the Hunting of Polar Bears for Profit!

Despite the growing threats of climate change, toxic pollution and oil development that jeopardize the very existence of polar bears, hunters continue to kill hundreds of them every year -- and are allowed to sell their body parts legally in the international market.

For today's Daily Action, tell President Obama to lead the way globally by proposing an urgently-needed ban on the commercial trade in polar bear parts at the next meeting of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES).
 With all the domestic live stock we raise. I do not understand the need to shoot down a species who numbers are dwindling as is. Don't get me wrong--I am not anti-hunting,especially if and when we are talking about a species who is in danger of over-population or an invasive species such as--I think it is called the Asian Carp that is threatening the eco-balance of the Great Lakes--They do need to be hunted and fished to extinction or at least to small enough numbers to stop doing damage to the native populations of fish.

Tell Democrats: End the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy.
Dear Reader, I would also like to pass on this e-mail for your consideration; Thank You.
America is not broke — we're the richest country in the history of the world.
But you wouldn't know that if you just listened to House Speaker John Boehner and other Republicans in Congress, who are already openly talking about forcing another debt ceiling crisis unless Democrats agree to brutal spending cuts.
The very same politicians who are pleading poverty and yelling the loudest about the need to slash the social safety net are also the ones trying the hardest to preserve the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, which are set to expire at the end of the year.
Very little so clearly demonstrates the callous venality of some members of Congress as their demand to give the Koch brothers a tax cut while simultaneously pushing benefit cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.
