“Asking for prayer” constitutes action for the Republican governor. This saves budget money. It also avoids taking steps to mitigate climate change. For a Republican governor to fund a science based approach to resolve issues is a brand violation. These actions could damage his political career. “Career before protecting constituents” is a politician’s mantra.


Remember. It’s as effective as doing nothing at all, but hey. It makes ya feel good!


When your government has regressed to praying for rain, that government has really jumped the shark.


Thoughts and prayers. Thoughts and prayers.


They’re just… *so* so transparently ignorant. I fucking hate this country.
