    And what about the other video of the mermaid spear fishing by our oil well?

    OUR OIL RESOURCE IS IN DANGER!!!!

    This could quickly become a national security issue.

    Obama needs to act on this now.
    It's not a seal. It appears to be a baby Sea Lion, perhaps a California Stellar but just as savage. They're man eaters, savage, child stealing monsters

    Not doubt they are already signed up for Obamacare and must have voted in the last election.

    I have shown my proof so not its up to you to debunk it.

    Kinda how that whole debate thing works you know.

    Until I hear that you've been granted supreme powers of reasoning by all the galactic overlords of the universe, your simply saying it is irrelevant.

    After years and years of diving and surfing off the California coast, I can assure you that is no sea lion.

    If it is than it has been seriously radiated or genetically deformed in some way, from the movements alone.

    I would actually call that video by itself a hoax, as in someone dressed up but since there are other videos even more telling I tend to believe it.

    Nobody can explain that 3000 ft. video I posted from the submersible either.

    There's more I can post but the fact, and point of this thread, is what should be done if some mythical creature turns out to be among us. You could substitute say Bigfoot into this scenario, or even aliens but what should the president do if it turns out, which it appears to be happening, that mermaids are in fact real.

    Would this alter policies in any way?

    Would the government start issuing hunting license or would the government round them up to study them?

    What would you expect Obama to do?

    That submersible video disturbed me. That I believe. That was either a very well done special effects hoax or the real thing and I see no reason those two PhD's would to that. The webbed hand/fin is perfect, like the fin/legs of a coastal bottom feeder and eerily human in color, something you do not see in the ocean.

    I too have spent two decades SCUBA diving off the west coast, British Columbia, Washington and Alaska and have seen some amazing things. As a television journalist I shot a documentary on sea lions, making the enormously stupid mistake of diving among them. I have seen sea lions like that, long and thin, but I admit not that color which is why I suspected a juvenile. The movements are suggestive, but in my estimation, allowing for the grainy video they are consistent of how a sea mammal would move from basking to a water entry, complete with the partial roll. They do walk on their fins.

    California Stellars are golden brown running to dark brown in color, but there are many variances and do run to black and grey and then there is always the possibility of a mutation.

    Yea the underwater ones are far more realistic, at least to those of us who know from first hand what creatures look like at depth.

    Here's another one off of what I assume is an oil rig. Not as good as the submersible but I don't know many creatures that hunt with spears.

    Surprise, Az
    Please excuse my ignorance on this topic, but would you explain what a california stellar is? How about we just leave the mermaids alone.
