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

    Can the cheese not be exported or donated to the Red Cross or Amnesty International or Unicef or someone who brings food to war zones and/or refugee camps?

    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!

    Fun fact: Driving one of those electric shopping carts while drunk or drinking legally counts as operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.

    1:10 guaranteed those commodity low-balling lowest-common-denominator suppliers are not producing any kind of cheese that any self-respecting cheese lover would eat. Serves those commodity milk producers right, that overflow shit definitely ain't going towards red hawk or Humboldt fog. Enjoy your cheap-ass Velveeta.

    It is a documentary style 2 minute ad from the cat's perspective that frames the automatic cat box as part of a larger human cat turd collecting conspiracy. I am serious, go watch it. Anyone actually, please because its simultaneously brilliant and disturbing. I don't know how to feel.

    maybe there wouldn't be a milk surplus if they didn't charge five dollars a gallon for it. make a comparison....oil has to be discovered,drilled for,pumped out of the ground,hauled to a refinery,refined into gasoline and trucked to the gas station.....where we buy it for $2/gallon. milk gets squeezed out of a cow's tit,pasturized and put in a jug.....and sold for five dollars a gallon!!! pour a gallon of gas into a car,and it will propel you,four friends and four thousand pounds of steel twenty miles down the road. drink a gallon of milk and you'll puke for twenty minutes.
