For those buy-bull bangers who insist that god orders all things that happen, I want you to think about something. President Bush claimed that God told him to invade Iraq. (He'll probably say the same thing about Iran.) You all followed right along, cheering, screaming with joy at each fallen Iraqi body shown on the nightly news. Well, where was your God then? Seen any hurricanes strike Iraq? Or Iran? No? Or floods, like those hitting the Midwest this year and the US Northeast last year? Seen any equivalent disasters hitting Iran or Iraq?
Or tornadoes. The US has been hit with record-level tornadoes this season and in 2007. See any tornadoes over Iraq? Over Iran? No?
How about wildfires! As I type these words, Humboldt County is charred. There is a black scar running across Southern California from Los Angeles to San Diego from last year's fires.
Ever see wildfires like that in the nations Bush tells you God wants destroyed? No?
Now comes Hurricanes Gustav, Hanna, and Ike.
