Nebraska’s mountain lion license plates are here, and bill sponsor Ernie Chambers is impressed
LINCOLN — The gray lion of the Nebraska Legislature will soon have a big cat on his compact car.
State Sen. Ernie Chambers of Omaha said Tuesday he was pleased with the artistic rendering selected for the new mountain lion specialty license plate, which resulted from a bill he sponsored this year in the Legislature.
“It was so well done I don’t know that I could have come up with something so good,” said Chambers, who also is a capable artist. The 79-year-old lawmaker has served in the Legislature for more than 40 years. (Continued- Omaha.Com)

For a good minute the Mountain Lion gets filled up with more led than the closing scene of Scarface. Just typical overtly aggressive Omaha Police Department behavior here. The Humane Society couldn’t put it down so I understand due to being in such a public suburban area there weren’t too many options and it had to go. But a little bit of respect and decorum maybe? You know #MountainLionLivesMatter too right? The bright side is it’s just a dangerous unarmed wild animal they decided to mercilessly bust rounds into rather than an unarmed black man.
*Having said all that if the Mountain Lion did in fact reach for a gun, then by all means it had to go.
First things first, I didn’t read beyond the first three paragraphs of that Omaha.com article. I saw the Mountain Lion, I saw Ernie Chambers stunting with his Mountain Lion plate and that’s all I needed. So if it’s a tribute to that dead Mountain Lion then uh, my bad whatever.
In this day and age when everyone is offended by everything, how did this fly? For crying out loud, Clowns are offensive in 2016! People were losing their minds over our last license plate roll out that had a man looking like he was holding his giant nut sack. So how on earth is it OK for Ernie to sit there with his Mountain Lion Death Trophy and the first person to say anything is me on this rinky dink ass blog?
Look I’m for everything. My two motto’s to life are “If you like it, I love it” and “What you eat don’t make me shit”
Just in the interest of fairness, I find this pretty off that we persecute the giant nut sack license plate and shame it from existence while openly mocking a dead Mountain Lion to “help fund wildlife conservation education”… Uhhh, Hey Ernie how about start with not executing them in broad daylight when they just CHILLLLLLLLIN, OK homie?
Remember the Dentist who killed Cecil the Lion? He’s living in Ibiza or somewhere refusing to show his face after the Internet mob came after him.
Anyways, as is tradition- take us away Ernie and your unlimited supply of form fitting Haynes solid color sweatshirts.
