Quote of the Day || August 25, 2011

“So Washington had an earthquake and now may be in for a hurricane. I wouldn’t say it’s the wrath of God, but the Lord might at least be suggesting we take a look at cutting entitlements.”

-John Boehner

  1. From a friend of mine . . .

    I heard today this report on yesterday earthquake on the east coast… “The epicenter of the quake has been pin-pointed to a graveyard outside of DC, where our Founding Fathers just rolled over in their graves.”

  2. Considering that last winter it was a blizzard with snow measured by the foot, and spring brought downpours of rain that flooded the streets, and summer heat cooked in record breaking heat indexes, and lately a damaging earthquake, and in a few days a hurricane will blow over the landscape……
    Yes, it seems reasonable to think that a message has been sent.

    1. Wait’ll they see a 5-foot tall heron in their backyard–they will get it. Incidentally, it was neat that the National Zoo animals apparently started freaking out prior to the quake–I used to live a block from the Zoo and walk in there before it opened everyday. Bliss! You could hear the lions and howlers from my apt. And they had bats in there that flew out blackening the sky a twilight.
