This Weekend’s Hurricane Was Apparently God’s Way Of Suggesting We Ease Up On Spending

Balance that checkbook or next time it’s gonna be a golden shower.

“I don’t know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We’ve had an earthquake; we’ve had a hurricane. He said, ‘Are you going to start listening to me here?’ Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we’ve got to rein in the spending.”

    God seems like a chick. Rather than just coming out and saying what's bothering him/her/it, he/she/it wants you to figure it out from only vaguely related actions.
