            I am a proud member of the Lions Coub (Lions Clubs International Foundation) and I sort eyeglasses for them. I recently got a license plate frame that reads (at the top) “WE SERVE” which is one of the Lions Clubs mottos.Below, is the Lions Club crest left and right and the identifying name.. all together it reads

            WE SERVE.@ LIONS @. At first I was hesitant to use it because I thought the phrase “WE SERVE LIONS” would be misleading… I’m on my way out of the house NOW with my frame and a screwdriver! LOL! Maybe I’ll add “poachers to” below the top motto. “WE SERVE poachers to LIONS” I LIKE IT!

  1. Dot in Seattle Ed Schultz died. I don’t know how to feel about that. Seems like later on in life he became just another GOP/KKK shill. Maybe he always was but he hid it really well. Just don’t know……… I wonder what Mike thinks about it.

    Ed’s politics evolved over the years. Yesterday’s obituary in the Huffington Post cites him as a conservative-turned-progressive talk show host from North Dakota. Schultz dated his epiphany to a 1998 meeting with homeless people in a Fargo soup kitchen.
    Schultz eventually got a TV slot on MSNBC that served as a warmup to Keith Olbermann’s “Countdown.” Keith was at first enthusiastic about Ed joining the MSNBC lineup. But he later soured on Ed for his soft stance on Republican demands for tax cuts during the “Grand Bargain” debate around 2012.
    Ed was at his best as a progressive talker when he spoke out in defense of union jobs. During the marathon 2011 showdown between Wisconsin union protestors and Governor Scott Walker, he aired his show directly from the streets of the state capital in Madison. Ed’s sympathy for the workers was partly due to his mother’s long career as a public school teacher.
    Ed had a stormy relationship with Air America. In 2007, he was not happy with Thom Hartmann replacing Al Franken’s noon to 3pm slot, after Al left to run for the Senate. (Thom has the widest progressive audience, thus making him a formidable rival.) Ed correctly pointed out Air America’s chronic mismanagement. That was one thing he and Mike Malloy could agree on.
    Ed’s shallowness on foreign policy issues brought him in direct conflict with Mike. Perhaps he was too hooked on football to read up on America’s dastardly deeds abroad. For example, Ed had this analysis on Iraq: “It’s a centuries-old conflict between Sunnis and Shia and there’s nothing we can do about it.” As Keith Woods noted, Ed blasted Mike when they were both at a public forum on Israel. Ed also featured Mike as the first “leftie” in his “Psycho Talk” segment.

    Good riddance to Scott Pruitt! He belongs with those poachers in South Africa. That would be his just desserts after defiling the planet during his perverse tenure as EPA Administrator.
    The only problem now is the monster who now takes his place. Former coal and mining lobbyist and climate denier Andrew Wheeler’s resume indicates he will carry on the Trump deregulatory agenda — without Pruitt’s self-inflicted scandals. On April 12, the Senate confirmed Wheeler as Deputy Administrator by a 53-45 margin. So the Republicans might now have the votes to confirm him as top Administrator.

    It’s not difficult to figure out what distinguished Kavanaugh from the rest of the sorry pack listed by The Federalist Society and The Heritage Foundation. He advises Congress to enact legislation exempting a president from civil suits while in office. On the subject of whether a president can be criminally indicted, this is what he published in a 2009 article in the Minnesota Law Review:

    “Congress should consider doing the same, moreover, with respect to criminal investigations and prosecutions of the President. In particular, Congress might consider a law exempting a President — while in office — from criminal prosecution and investigation, including from questioning by criminal prosecutors or defense counsel. Criminal investigations targeted at or revolving around a President are inevitably politicized by both their supporters and critics. As I have written before, ‘no Attorney General or special counsel will have the necessary credibility to avoid the inevitable charges that he is politically motivated — whether in favor of the President or against him, depending on the individual leading the investigation and its results.’ The indictment and trial of a sitting President, moreover, would cripple the federal government, rendering it unable to function with credibility in either the international or domestic arenas. Such an outcome would ill serve the public interest, especially in times of financial or national security crisis.” [PDF for the entire article available here:
    Trump is a gangster who is foremost interested in what benefits Trump. Kavanaugh is Trump’s “Get out of jail free!” card.

    The departure of John Schnatter leaves Papa John’s Pizza not only without a spokesperson and chairman but also with an identity crisis. Not wishing to stray far from their established brand, they believe they have just that person. And the name. Are you ready for Mamma Paula Deen’s Pizza?
