Here in the Central Valley of California (which is basically Northwest Mississippi), we don’t always pay attention to “smarts” with our elected officials. That’s not a prerequisite. Social and Cultural things are all we care about. Biblical social and cultural things.
So it was no surprise when our local state assembly woman, Shannon Grove, blamed our long treacherous drought on California’s abortion laws. That’s right. God hates us and is showing us how the dry parched heat of hell feels. Furthermore, to prove her point, she pointed out the long horrible drought in Texas ended when Gov. Perry signed a late-term abortion bill. God was fit to provide those parched lands with a thank-you water shower.
Never mind facts. Never mind truth.
Governor Perry singed the late-term abortion bill on July 18, 2013…two years ago. Two more years of draught followed the bill signing. I know God has a lot on his/her plate so these thank-you showers took a little bit of time. But, nevertheless God wrapped his Thank You Texas in a huge grateful display of an abundance of rain and flood water killing at least 31 people in Texas and Oklahoma. God also included thanking Oklahoma because they just passed their late-term abortion bill this past April.
Man, did the Malaysians get it wrong, too. They blamed tourists posing nude on Mt. Kinabalu for the earthquake that happened. If they would tune in to Pat Roberson they would find out that gay marriage causes those kinds of natural disasters.
OMG…speaking of Pat Robertson and smarts. Here is his greatest quote ever, delivered to rousing applause at the Republican Convention of 1992:
“Feminism encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism, and become lesbians.
You gotta love Pat Robertson!
I love it when a politician first clears the air by saying, “I’m not a scientist.” That means that the next word out of their mouth will be “BUT” and then some nonsensical total bullshit non-science quote is coming. No one is better at doing that then John Boehner.
In an interview on ABC about global warming he of course made the obligatory (I’m not a scientist) statement and then said: “The idea that carbon dioxide is a carcinogen that is harmful to our environment is almost comical. Every time we exhale, we exhale carbon dioxide. Every cow in the world, you know, when they do what they do, you’ve got more carbon dioxide.” (Now that’s brilliant!)
Speaking of Global Warming, today the Pope will be coming out with an ENCYCLICAL. Yes! Let’s hear it for Encyclicals. We hear that this will be a huge treatise on Global Warming. Climate Change. How we humans are screwing up the atmosphere by pumping to much energy (carbon) into the atmosphere.
And of course we have one of the Pope’s favorite Catholics, Rick Santorum (Please don’t google that last name) once again running for President while saying over-the-top stupid stuff.
Rick, who is not a scientist, is already warning the Pope in advance that he should leave the Science stuff to Scientists. Well said, Rick, we certainly know that you are far from scientifically inclined. However maybe you should check the Pope’s credentials. He is a scientist. He has a Master’s Degree in Chemistry and before he started Popen’ around, he was a Chemical Technician.
Sometimes it doesn’t hurt to believe the people with the SMARTS.
