Melania Trump’s Revenge on Designers Who Wouldn’t Dress Her

Since hearing of the fashion designers who refused to dress the gorgeous first lady, I have wondered whether or not they should reconsider. They are not only people, but also brands and companies. It is never a good idea to “cut off your nose to spite your face.”
Yes, that is gory. However, it is also a very old, very clever, saying that seems to fit this situation.

Chuck Berry died on March 18. Without him, something called “rock ’n’ roll” might still have come along, but it would’ve sounded different. And it almost certainly wouldn’t have sounded as good.

What!?! Say It Ain’t So!

SPOILERS AHEAD!!

 

 

We didn’t see it coming. And that makes it harder to stomach. Apparently, we weren’t the only ones that didn’t see it coming, though. During the post-show Facebook Live, host Amy Brown and a panel of “Nashies” discussed the jarring Feb. 23 episode of “Nashville,” which found many of us sobbing as Deacon, Maddie and…

An Important Request From Endangered Species Coalition

In an encouraging move in defense of conservation and ethical management, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) passed regulations last year that finally limited Alaska’s abhorrent “Intensive Management” of predators on wildlife refuges. In response, Alaska’s Congressional delegation introduced legislation that would overturn this regulation and allow Alaska to once again exterminate bears, wolves, and coyotes on national wildlife refuges and other federal lands in the state.

Tell Congress to vote against this unethical attempt to unleash the worst kinds of management on bears and wolves in Alaska.

The joint resolution (H.J. Res. 69 and S.J. Res. 18) would do away with a FWS rule that prohibits some of the most offensive and inhumane means of management:

– Baiting and luring bears with rotting food to an area where hunters are waiting to kill them;

– Killing coyote, bear, and wolf mothers and their pups in their dens;

– The use of steel-jawed leghold traps and wire neck snares to kill grizzly bears;

– And, the use of airplanes to chase and gun down grizzly bears.

These inhumane and unsustainable acts are misguided and unscientific attempts by the Alaska Board of Game to bolster caribou, deer, and moose populations at any cost. The so-called “Intensive Management” policy led to the designation of areas where all wolves, bears, and coyotes would be targeted for killing–even on national wildlife refuges!

FWS was within its mandate and was supported by scientists and the public when it reigned in Alaska’s Board of Game with last year’s regulation. This attempt by Congressman Don Young (R-AK) and Senator Dan Sullivan (R-AK) to rescind this rule ignores the wildlife watchers that outnumber hunters in Alaska five to one and would curtail their spending of the same magnitude by seeking to turn national wildlife refuges and other federal lands in Alaska into killing fields.

Take action to stop this return to unethical, inhumane, and unsustainable “Intensive Management” in Alaska: tell your senators and representative to oppose the so-called Killing Baby Animals in Alaska Act (H.J. Res. 69 and S.J. Res. 18).

Thank you for your commitment to wildlife and wild places.

Stop the “Killing Baby Animals in Alaska Act.”

Congressman Don Young (R-AK) and Senator Dan Sullivan (R-AK) have introduced legislation that rescinds a regulation that protects bears, wolves, and coyotes on national wildlife refuges in Alaska. Tell Congress to reject these bills. Take Action! »
