    Obama didn't smoke crack... :/ get your drugs right. He snorted coke.

    Heat waves have been the trend for centuries.

    Texas and Oklahoma are suffering from drought. Don't have the wisdom to know if prayer will have any positive impact on mitigating the problems.

    But it is morbidly fascinating on how some find delight with ridiculing those who may find value/comfort in praying to God.....

    How dare you suggest that global warming is something that occurs naturally. Next thing you know you will suggest that the earth is round or that the earth revolves around the sun instead of the sun revolving around the earth.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I'm glad I don't live in the bible belt. But then I have to deal with the retarded liberals here in CA. Teaching 'gay history' in public schools etc... sigh. At least we have people pushing for gay rights and ending prohibition though.

    In the thick of the heat wave is Oklahoma where Gov. Mary Fallin asked Oklahomans to pray for rain this Sunday.

    "The power of prayer is a wonderful thing, and I would ask every Oklahoman to look to a greater power this weekend and ask for rain," Fallin said in a news release on Thursday.
    Fallin on Thursday also issued a ban on outdoor burning for the western half of the state because of the extreme drought conditions.

    Prayer does not work, never has, never will. There is ZERO scientific evidence. it only give people that warm fuzzy feeling.
    What is wrong with people getting a warm and fuzzy feeling?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I completely and utterly disagree. This causes no harm, and even increases the morale and unity of its citizens. An appeal to a higher authority may be one of our saving graces.
