We’re hearing that some southern Ohio Republican lawmakers are so taken by the gays-to-straights conversion therapy idea taking root in the land  that they are ready to try it out in other areas of social concern.  They  would replace food stamps  for a therapeutic conversion that would require food-stamp  recipients to give up eating altogether.

One well-fed lawmaker from down along the Ohio River supported the notion as a cost-saving measure as well as the perfect solution to ridding poor recipients of their nasty eating habits.  “This isn’t rocket science,” he said, self-assuredly.   “People who don’t eat anything don’t need the stamps. We’re finally getting around to attacking the problem at the source”.
