WE NEED A PRAYER
Political journalists are having a great time pulling apart the loosely tied pieces that make up presidential hopeful, TX Gov. Rick Perry. At a breakfast junket earlier this week Perry responded to an audience member’s question about global warming as follows:
“I do believe that the issue of global warming has been politicized, I think there are a substantial number of scientists who have manipulated data so that they will have dollars rolling into their projects. I think we’re seeing it almost weekly or even daily, scientists who are coming forward and questioning the original idea that man-made global warming is what is causing the climate to change.”
Perry’s ideas are laughable in the least, especially since there aren’t ANY scientists (ok maybe one quack who’s using a Mr. Wizard chemistry set) who are of Perry’s suggested opinion. In fact, what we are seeing “almost weekly or even daily” is more and more evidence that proves that our global dependency on fossil fuels, industrial waste products and other non-sustaining energy resources are in fact increasing the destruction of our environment at more and more rapid rates. Perry is convinced that climate changes simply occur and that human-kind has done nothing wrong or to cause it.
In fact just earlier this year, as his state of Texas suffered from the worst drought since the Dust Bowl of the 1930s. Governor Rick Perry took dramatic action to save the state from the ravages of a changing climate. He issued a proclaimation for “Days of Prayer for Rain in the State of Texas”. For three days, Perry asked Texas to kneel at the pew, or at the foot of their beds, and silently ask God to bring water to their parched state.
Hmmm… good idea. Please, close your eyes, and bow your heads and join me in prayer;
Dear Lord. Sweet, sweet lord of the land. From tender baby Jesus in a manger to the Jesus with a beard and birkenstocks… From Jesus the carpenter to Jesus who turned water into wine… Surely a Jesus so powerful can save us from the fate of having another Texas governor as President of the United States. Please Jesus who created Easter Eggs and Santa Claus, convince Rick Perry to record a demo and sign to Cash Money Records. Bless his album to go triple platinum so he can get a Bentley and a crib in Miami. Make sure he gets so caught up in sipping Ciroc that he never, ever-ever, ever-ever-ever, considers running for President again.”
Can I get a AMEN?
