Republican John Shumkus wants to become the chairman of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce.
John has solved global warming and wants to have it on record that God will save us from climate change.
U.S. Representative John Shimkus, possible future chairman of the Congressional committee that deals with energy and its attendant environmental concerns, believes that climate change should not concern us since God has already promised not to destroy the Earth. Shimkus, an evangelical Christian and a Republican member of the House from Illinois, on Tuesday signalled his desire to become chairman of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce.If God will save us from Climate Change who in the hell is going to save us from these lunatics???
The Energy and Commerce committee is among the most powerful in the U.S. Congress, with a wide-ranging purview over legislation touching on energy policy, environmental initiatives and public health.
It reminds me of the joke where a man, after a flood, sat on his rooftop waiting. He turned away a raft, a boat and a helicopter, saying that God would save him. He drowned.
When he got to heaven, he asked God why he had forsaken him, to which God replied: "But I sent you a raft, a boat and a helicopter."
