Here is a piece of news that every American ought to read with care:
Hurricane Irene and the recent East coast earthquake were directed at America’s politicians, according to a statement from Michele Bachmann
The Minnesota congresswoman and presidential candidate told an audience gathered at a Shriner’s temple in Sarasota, Fla., Sunday that God was trying to communicate a message about fiscal responsibility via the two recent natural disasters. From the St. Petersburg Times:
I don’t know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We’ve had an earthquake; we’ve had a hurricane. He said, ‘Are you going to start listening to me here?’ Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we’ve got to rein in the spending.
For some, Bachmann’s comment this weekend immediately brought to mind televangelist Pat Robertson, who infamously claimed Hurricane Katrina was God’s punishment for legalized abortion.29-08-11 (.(ack: Rachel Rose Hartman | The Ticket)
Does not the American voter worry that his or her vote could send some stupid candidate to the highest office?
I know now why the USA is hit without let up by bad news. The stupidest and the least deserving fellows enter politics and they entertain notions being a member of a political party would provide the necessary camouflage to merge among the like minded politicians. They beat the drum, wave their flags and make appropriate sounds so they would not be caught on the wrong foot. Then these caterpillars of the nation announce their intention to be pillars of the Capitol Hill. Pat Robertson tried to find a reason why Hurricane Katrina made a landfall and made the underprivileged of the land suffer all the more. According it was due to the abortion law. Only they were too poor even to pay for abortion!
National Police also got into the act blasting some of these huddled masses to kingdom come. For they looked ready for mayhem! The police found their teeth chattering and body steaming from dehydration and they looked to mischief ready. So the law acted in self-defense.This time around Bachmann found God giving her the presidential address well before hand. Of course she was to use it only when she was elected.
Never have I laughed so loud for a long time since I heard George W. Bush speaking how God charged him to ride into the streets of Baghdad- and not Laredo, mind you,and save the Nation. After many convulsions of conscience and economic malaise I laughed now and said to myself, ‘If the nation is going to take Bachmann’s word as gospel truth I am making a trip to the USA. I have a business deal to close. A fellow by name Perry is interested in buying Brooklyn bridge, ‘as is where is’ condition. Perhaps it might be like stealing the candy off a baby.’Since I heard he is also a Presidential candidate I cannot wait.
