    Gas prices fell in Los Angeles over the weekend, and are likely to fall nationwide. The "Invasion Of The Body Snatchers" mainly seems to have alarmed only Pakistan, which will now shoot to kill--if they show up again(?)!

    I watched the entire thing waiting for one laugh. I think it fell flat. Not funny at all. I think the Frey impersonation of Palin is getting old and stale. I used to think it was hilarious, but it definitely has jumped the shark. Not even the Rent Is Too Damn High guy was funny. The Newt, Bachmann and esp Romney skits were just not funny at all!

    Sorry Ravi, but if you laughed at that, then you got issues! :eusa_whistle:

    There hasn't been anything, period, "funny" on SNL for years. The show is pathetic.

    Funny or not, they all did an excellent job of portraying rightwingloons.

    The House Budget Committee of Rep. Ryan, GOP From Mars, couldn't even sell his roadmap to The Party of Abraham Lincoln, aka "The Great Cheapskate!" The Liberian Movement meant Africa, Not Costa Rica. Then as now, War Spending To Kill Off Americas was agenda Number One of the newly ascendant party. Clearly not much other spending was included, such as on what to do next.

    The GOP MediCare Solution was to get the federal government out of any pretense of health care cost controls, and send worthless paper to future retirees instead. Euros were not going to be sent, but "vouchers" were going to be sent.

    Then in Social Security, rather than a stable and solvent fund, then millions would be able to lose it all again, in the seamy world of investors, not bailed out by government. The Ryan Budgeteers knew where the money should go--even when Bush was in office.

    Ryan's Roadmap is still on the internet.

    "The proposal strengthens this important retirement program and makes it sustainable for the long term.
    •Preserves the existing Social Security program for those 55 or older.
    •Offers workers under 55 the option of investing over one third of their current Social Security taxes into personal retirement accounts, similar to the Thrift Savings Plan available to Federal employees. Includes a property right so they can pass on these assets to their heirs, and a guarantee that individuals will not lose a dollar they contribute to their accounts, even after inflation.
    •Makes the program permanently solvent – according to the Congressional Budget Office [CBO] – by combining a more realistic measure of growth in Social Security’s initial benefits, with an eventual modernization of the retirement age."

    Rather than a small but on-going return on invested money, like in Social Security: Then instead a guarantee of "No Return At All," was imposed.

    Clearly, no one will go there(?)!

    Romney and Newt pieces weren't funny at all.

    Trump was more clever than anything, but again no guffaws.

    The rent is too damn high guy was clever only.

    Palin piece still delivers like FedEx. Always on time.

    LOL, not sure you understand that falling flat means they failed. Comedy that isn't funny, isn't a success? It would be like saying the Cubs did great this year by coming in last place in the NL Central!
