      • Stephen: Folks, this bill is a nightmare. Thankfully Kansas Republican Pat Roberts put the danger in terms we can all understand.
        [Video: Sen. Pat Roberts: I'm terribly concerned that we are riding hell for leather into the healthcare box canyon, full of spending quicksand, cactus tax hikes, policy briar patches, complete with CMS regulatory scorpions, rattlesnakes and bad news bears…..I yield back the balance of my time.]
        Stephen: Don't yield it! There's more to that metaphor! [Stephen puts on cowboys boots and hat] You see folks, we're on a runaway stage coach of big government, being chased by the coyotes of increased deficits and heading right into an ambush by the Comanche in chief and his hope Hopi's. And unless the Marshall of fiscal responsibility arrives on the noon train of free market principals to drive these saloon girls of new taxes out the pickup truck of high premiums will get eaten by the death panel prairie dogs and the boothill tumbleweed sarsaparilla varmit six shooter cattle rustling you think you've used enough dynamite there fistful of dollars yeehaw!

      • Stephen: Now some say the Shroud is a fake just because carbon dating placed its origin a thousand years after Jesus was crucified. But that's overlooking the simpler answer: Jesus could time travel. After all, He is constantly appearing in modern times to rub His face in grilled cheese sandwiches.
