U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack listens to a question during a press briefing about the drought in the midwest at the White House in Washington July 18, 2012. Broiling heat has blanketed much of the U.S. Midwest this week, exacerbating the region’s worst drought in more than 50 years and devastating corn, soy and other vital crops.

“I get on my knees every day and I’m saying an extra prayer right now. If I had a rain prayer or a rain dance I could do, I would do it.”

    “I get on my knees every day and I’m saying an extra prayer right now,” U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack told reporters after briefing President Barack Obama. You believe that? No one in this White House prays to any God I know. The Obama Administration has insulted God and we know that Obama only prays to Allah.Sec. Vilsack should pray to God that he does not burn in hell for having any part in an administration that is trying to ruin the entire fabric our nation was created from!!! Vilsack has sold his soul to the evil Monsanto who continues to contaminate our food system!

    It’s nice to know of government is still led by five-thousand year-old ideas.

    When you were young and your heart was an open book,
    You used to say live and let live
    You know you did, you know you did, you know you did.

    It wasn’t so long ago that Rick Perry got together with a whole bunch of Jeebus followers to pray for rain in Texas….the drought got worse!! I mean, really! The only thing that”prayer will do for you Mr. Vilsack is make YOU feel better – NOBODY else is listening. Perhaps you can tell me and all the other readers out there when there has been PROOF that it does work!
