    Read that Congress will not block SNAP recipients from buying candy and soda/pop.

    When Congress is lifetime employment, you kill your farm system.

    Found this in a serial I'm reading:
    Mr. Sarcastic: Nothing, you well know, is so rare as the coincidence of theory and practice. A man who “will go through fire and water to serve a friend” in words, will not give five guineas to save him from famine. A poet will write Odes to Independence, and become the obsequious parasite of any great man who will hire him. A burgess will hold up one hand for purity of election, while the price of his own vote is slyly dropped into the other. I need not accumulate instances ... This then is my system. I ascertain the practice of those I talk to, and present it to them as from myself, in the shape of theory: the consequence of which is, that I am universally stigmatised as a promulgator of rascally doctrines. Thus I said to Sir Oliver Oilcake, “When I get into Parliament I intend to make the sale of my vote as notorious as the sun at noon-day. I will have no rule of right, but my own pocket. I will support every measure of every administration, even if they ruin half the nation for the purpose of restoring the Great Lama, or of subjecting twenty millions of people to be hanged, drawn, and quartered at the pleasure of the man-milliner of Mahomet’s mother. I will have ship-loads of turtle and rivers of Madeira for myself, if I send the whole swinish multitude to draft and husks.” (Melincourt, chapter xxi)

    He's waiting for Susan Collins to show up for their duel.

He told her he was headed back home to North Dakota, and the lady paused for a bit and then asked "isn't that right next to Alaska?"
    The greatest off the cuff witticism I ever heard was from a waitress in South Dakota in 1988. My best friend and I were driving cross-country and stopped into a diner. She asked where we were traveling and I said "We started in New York City and we're driving to San Francisco." Literally without missing a beat she said, "Well if I was you I'd have started later and I'd finish sooner."

    So, Roy Moore claimed earlier this week that Sharia law is happening in the Midwest.

    It'd be funny if 30+% of 'Bama's voters didn't take him seriously.
    We'd be remiss not to include the actual quote, which is great:

    Jeff Stein: Which American communities are under Sharia law? When did they fall under Sharia law?

    Roy Moore: Well, there's Sharia law, as I understand it, in Illinois, Indiana — up there. I don't know.

    Jeff Stein: That seems like an amazing claim for a Senate candidate to make.

    Roy Moore: Well, let me just put it this way — if they are, they are; if they're not, they're not. That doesn't matter. Oklahoma tried passing a law restricting Sharia law, and it failed. Do you know about that?

    Jeff Stein: No, I don't.
    Roy Moore is raping puppies. I have no proof, but if he is, he is; if he's not, he's not.

Needless to say, my dad was a bit concerned that he would never make it home.

    Also, I was just asked on Tuesday by an attorney here in Colorado of whether I was from Canada...based solely on how I said the word "about."
    There is a "25 year old Canadian" joke in there somewhere

    To be honest they probably think the Midwest is close to the Mideast which is of course the home of Sharia Law...it makes sense if you just drink turpentine and beat your head against a wall. (and your wife for good measure)
