Texas governor pans drilling safety regulations, suggests ‘God’ to blame for BP’s oil disaster

If the very Christian, very Republican governor of Texas is right on this one, he may soon find it politically expedient to rethink his allegiances, what with 2010 being an election
year and all.

That's right: according to Republican Rick Perry, no amount of safety requirements can prevent an "act of God," which may or may not have occurred in the Gulf of Mexico, resulting in 11 dead oil
rig workers and a gusher of oil jetting over 2 million gallons of crude
per day into the fragile aquatic ecosystem.

After they made God happy by watering down evolution, and appeased God by removing Thomas Jefferson from one of the texts, because, you know, Thomas Jefferson hates us for our freedom. You would think God would be happier and would stop knocking over oil wells. lol

Nice photo Christopher. I think you guys in Tex-ass, us here in Aryanzona, and Oklahoma are in a three-way race to the 19th century.
