Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) has proclaimed Friday, April 22, 2011, to Sunday, April 24, 2011, as Days of Prayer for Rain in the State of Texas. He didn’t ask for any prayers to end the drought or put out the wildfires, he just asked for prayers for rain in the state of Texas. While looking at the weather radar tonight, it was raining somewhere in Texas, so I guess it worked. It’s a miracle.
Perry scheduled the prayer fest over the weekend so as not to effect worker productivity. The man is a genius. And always perfectly coiffed too. Do you think Perry uses Supercuts?
With drought and wildfires raging, God is obviously punishing Texas. God uses natural disasters, such as the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, as punishment. Why does God hate Texas?
Perry also asked for federal disaster aid. From the Obama administration. Awkward, from the guy whose book is entitled: Fed Up! Our Fight to Save America From Washington. How about issuing vouchers so that each individual can purchase their own wildfire relief from private sources?
While the Governor and I live in the same city, we live in alternative realities.
