Totally Work Safe This Time
It's Friday! It's spring! Oh, and here's LOLFed brought to you by Asparagirl. I asked and I received!
Unfortunately, I only laughed at the joke because where I live the reality is very expensive personally. We aren't allowed to talk about the problem because that's racist. That begs the question as to why if illegal aliens are positive contributors their advocates are willing to play the race card rather than extoll the virtues. Sad.
But I did do my own LOLcats version of the old M-LEC Citibank bailout idea (remember that?) here, several months ago.
Perhaps it is just an idea whose time has come.
Rob, are you still thinking about the fourth liver transplant? Aieeee.
Viola, if we don't keep laughing the election year is gonna make us all cry.
Btw: Do you think Obama shot the finger at Hillary? Melissa has that clip up and my husband and I looked at it but honestly, we are not sure about that. What is your take on it?
Many parts of America, long considered the breadbasket of the world, are now confronting a once unthinkable phenomenon: food rationing. Major retailers in New York, in areas of New England, and on the West Coast are limiting purchases of flour, rice, and cooking oil as demand outstrips supply. There are also anecdotal reports that some consumers are hoarding grain stocks.
At a Costco Warehouse in Mountain View, Calif., yesterday, shoppers grew frustrated and occasionally uttered expletives as they searched in vain for the large sacks of rice they usually buy.
"Where's the rice?" an engineer from Palo Alto, Calif., Yajun Liu, said. "You should be able to buy something like rice. This is ridiculous."
I saw few commentors at CR mentioning this, but now it's in the news. Wow. Riots in LA over rice? Third world here we come....
This is very regressive inflation. It is the basics which are arcing higher and higher.
I posted this 2 weeks ago at CR and have every comment taken down after that. As a blue collar worker who hates WS and what they have done to the US this was perfect. I live in Central Calif. with nothing but Ag around I have worked the fields myself to eat and I know how hard these people work so when a friend sent to me the only thing I was glad about was I wasn't drinking anything.
Keep up the great work
I think the Neverending Campaign is approaching Burnout Mode. As the strain of the Perpetual Campaign grinds on and on, candidates are starting to crack.
As they do, things are likely to get entertainingly weird. Remember the Dean Scream?
