Could The Bison Be America's Next Bald Eagle?

Filed under: PolitikBison

Western lawmakers hope so!

Senators in Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska, Kansas, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota and even Rhode Island have all thrown their support towards the The National Bison Legacy Act - legislation that would introduce the bison as America's national mammal.

Bison are the largest land mammal in North America and were once roaming the continent in the tens of millions.

But before President Teddy Roosevelt's intervention, the population was less than 1,000. Today, it is nearly half a million.

Legislators hope that the act will raise awareness on the bison's impact on America's cultural history.

So, will the bison be right beside the bald eagle someday?

We'll find out soon enough!

Angelina Jolie: I Don't Lecture My Kids

angelina-jolie-doesnt-lecture-her-children.jpg

Angelina Jolie seems like a pretty cool mom.

We all know she loves her children and wants to make sure that they have a worldly education.

So, that's why she makes sure they know where they all come from and what an impact they can make onto the world - without the need to throw it in their faces.

She recently said:

"I'm not one of those moms who kind of lectures [my kids]. But I do tell them, whenever I go on a trip, where I'm going and why. And on some occasions, they've come with me to different refugee camps. And they also go to their home countries a lot.

Hopefully they live in the world, and they see the world really as it is, outside of Hollywood. f they really live in the world and spend time with friends around the world from all different types of backgrounds, they [will] just see things as they are."

For instance, her daughter Zahara just turned 7 on Sunday and Angelina wanted to make sure her heritage was a part of her bday celebration. Angelina adds:

"We make sure we're very aware of her culture and her heritage. She's an African-American girl, so we make that a part of anything she does. So that'll be a part of her [birthday]."

See? She's just an awesome mom and those kids are going to turn out to be amazing. Just watch.

Quote Of The Day.

quote-of-the-day-edie-falco

"Forgive me, I don’t know if you’re friends with her — but who the hell is Kim Kardashian? Like, who are these people and why are they famous and why are they advertising things and being asked their opinions about things? I just don’t understand what these people did to be in a position of having everyone ask their opinions about stuff. I mean, if there’s something about her personality or something that she’s accomplished or her philosophy on something — but beyond that I don’t understand what’s happening. It’s actually frightening."

- Edie Falco, on reality TV culture, to New York Magazine
