Governor Rick Perry Wants Texans To Throw Money At Strippers, Er, Make It Rain

Due to such severe devastation in Texas (over 150,000 acres have been affected by the wildfires), Governor Rick Perry has taken up action by issuing the following proclamation asking Texans "of all faiths and traditions to offer prayers to the God of their choice to open the skies and make it rain."
Gov. Rick Perry has proclaimed the three-day period from Friday, April 22, to Sunday, April 24, as Days of Prayer for Rain in the State of Texas, following extreme drought conditions that have sparked dangerous wildfires across the state, which have taken lives, engulfed more than 1.8 million acres and destroyed nearly 400 homes.
“Throughout our history, both as a state and as individuals, Texans have been strengthened, assured and lifted up through prayer,” Gov. Perry said. “It is fitting that Texans should join together in prayer to humbly seek an end to this ongoing drought and these devastating wildfires, and for the safety of the brave firefighters and emergency management officials who have worked tirelessly to protect lives and property around the state.”
Gov. Perry urges Texans of all faiths and religious traditions to offer prayer for the healing of the land, rebuilding of communities and the restoration of our normal and robust way of life in Texas.
Hey, whatever puts out the fires. I just hope God doesn't get mixed messages from Fat Joe and Lil' Wayne.
