Remember when Pat Robertson warned that a hurricane was bearing down on Orlando because his god was angry about all that “Gay Days’ stuff? And it turned out Orlando was spared; the hurricane hit Robertson’s backyard? Truly the silliness never stops.
Denial has its place too; turn away from bad stuff and it won’t happen. Jonathan Turley reminds us:
Earthquake Hits Cantor’s District After He Led Fight To Slash Funding
The epicenter was Mineral Virginia in the district of Republican Congressman Eric Cantor. You may recall Cantor’s effort to slash the budget of the United States Geological Service (USGS). . . .
. . . . My greatest concern is that Cantor also defended cuts in the National Weather Service and NOAA — and there is a hurricane approaching Washington.
Bombs are threats and that is all. Also Mooslims. And teh gays.
UPDATE: Cantor got more specific today. Via TPM: “We aren’t going to speculate on damage before it happens, period,” his spokesperson Laena Fallon emails. “But, as you know, Eric has consistently said that additional funds for federal disaster relief ought to be offset with spending cuts.”.
