    As G MADD1 says, lowering the price of milk would sell more of it.....the concept of supply and demand
    Also getting rid of 2% and 1% would give room for real milk
    Maybe the woman driving a cart drinking wine from a pringles can in walmart at 9am was one of the seniors discovering pot.
    Actually the number of seniors smoking pot has not increased, its the legality allowing them to come out of the closet.

    Hahaha. She started her journey at 6:30AM doing laps around the Walmart parking lot in an electric cart drinking wine out of a Pringles can. 3 and a half hours later the cops were called. They tracked her down in a nearby restaurant and delivered the bad need she was banned from shopping at Walmart. Meanwhile, at another Walmart store in the same city the cops were called on another Walmart shopper who picked up a cake in the bakery, ate 1/2 while shopping and refused to pay for the entire cake saying she should only pay for half. She was banned also. Meanwhile at a third Walmart a man was arrested for shoplifting three times in one day.

    anybody else notice that at 3:27, the text in the background is the monologue Colbert did on election night? The one about swallowing too much of the poison.

    If America ever fully legalizes marijuana, the increase in snacking should help reduce that cheese surplus.

    1.4BB lbs? Sounds like the marijuana flower crop in Oregon last season. If all Oregons start smoking now, it will take 7 years to take it all up.

    The liberal cares not about interpreting domestic affairs. Doing so would require being truthful which triggers the left because 'muh feelings' which is why they watch this filthy nonsense and believe everything Idiot Colber says to be true simply because it suits the "resistance" agenda. And that, after all, is the core of the liberal ideology.
    Therefore; the liberal will use propaganda to twist, turn, and spin events into what "sounds good" to the lowest common deminator (aka: snowflake bernie people who were sold to 'stand with her'), these zealots then repeat previous talking points which are full of falseties, but force them as if it were facts.
    Thus; when these idiotic snowflakes are challenged on their talking points, the liberals shout 'daz racist' as a reflex when confronted to defend that which they do not know. However; the liberal will never feel embarassed for they are shameless and will continue parroting moronic idioicies from Propagandist Colbert as if he is a source of honesty. Liberalism IS a disease!

    Yeah, I think he stole "meanwhile" from TYT. Not sure if The Damage Report was doing it first, but I think so.

    Fun fact: Driving one of those electric shopping carts while drunk or drinking legally counts as operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.
    I’m a little disappointed that Stephen didn’t tell us what the new Panera soup is. Oh, well; TO THE GOOGLES!
