But since Bachmann and Pawlenty are working to turn Minnesota into Texas, it is worth remembering that the 'adaptation' strategy of Gov. Rick Perry of Texas has been to designate 3 "days of prayer for rain" while cutting the budget of agency battling record wildfires.
It would seem no one is actually listening to Perry's prayers because the only alternative would be to believe that whoever is listening is doing the exact opposite of what Perry has prayed for. As the latest U.S. Drought Monitor shows, the Texas drought is considerably worse than when Perry issued an "official proclamation drawing on his constitutional authority designating three days as Days of Prayer for Rain" back in April:
Yes, back in mid-April, only 10% of Texas was under exceptional drought. Now a staggering 71% is!
[Given Perry's track record, it seems pretty scary that, as TP reports, Rick Perry Wants To Leave Government 'In God's Hands,' Says 'God, You're Gonna Have To Fix This'.]
