“God’s still up there. The arrogance of people to think that we, human beings, would be able to change what he is doing in the climate is to me outrageous.” –Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.)
On the fifth day, God let the Earth bring forth every kind of animal — including mosquitoes. Some of them carry West Nile virus, which in 2012 has been reported in 48 states and has killed 118 people. The bulk of the outbreak, among the worst in the nation’s history, is centered in Texas, but Oklahoma is in the top six states with 129 cases reported so far.
When it comes to tropical diseases such as West Nile, warmer weather speeds up the process of production and infection — increasing the population of mosquitoes, speeding their life cycle so that they reach biting age sooner, and rushing development of the virus within the bug’s body. Other mosquito-borne illnesses, such as Dengue fever, are expected to become more common in the U.S. as global temperatures rise. Please, Lord, since you’re the only one who can possibly solve this problem, send us down a tanker of thy DDT.
As you know, America is the first country to send aid when other countries are in trouble. It is highly appropriate that we now send THANKS to all of the countries that reciprocated for our help with their disasters, misgivings, social turmoil, & poverty by sending to the United States of America monetary and physical help when Sandy ravaged our East Coast leaving dead, homelessness, and pure disaster.
Listed below are all the Countries and World Organizations that are giving us gracious assistance. Please assist in thanking these entities by passing on this information so people all over America can join in and THANK our neighbors, to whom we have invested BILLIONS!
First on the list is…
Maybe now Americans will realize that charity begins at home. With millions of our people in need and in poverty, let’s save our borrowed money and spend it at home instead of sending it to Egypt, Libya, Pakistan, etc. Staten Island and parts of New Jersey would gladly thank America if we spent the billions there … Perhaps the only hope left for America is divine hope and nothing more.
A special thanks to Mostly Bright Ideas for the lifted cartoons.
