So...Trump went from raking the forest to wetting it? 🤡
A year ago we were told to only water our lawns once a week for 10 minutes. One town near me told people to just let their lawns die because grass could not survive on this schedule. But he wants to water the entire state. The obvious question is "where would this water come form?"

I know he says it is free from the sky. Maybe we could pray for the water from the sky like the Utah governor said to do.

And yes the people applauding this BS is really sad.

Oh didn’t you hear? The Chinese have weather bombs they can shoot at clouds so we can just do something similar.












*I’m aware that such a technology is actually being used

They're only allowed to do their heathen magic on the small plots of land we graciously allowed them to live on. They should be thanking us for not wiping them off the face of the earth for being on our land.

My wife used to work at eco-lodge that had a bunch of wild turkeys hanging around. A couple years ago we were in extreme drought (again) and some Navajo women came to the lodge in search of turkey feathers to use in a rain ceremony. My wife was like, "hell,yes! Take what you need!" At that point, we'd have prayed for rain to the goddamn god of atheism if it had a chance of working.

@IronWing

Various cultures have a rain ceremony of some type.

I do hope people know I was being facetious with my previous comment. It's criminal how various minorities have been suppressed in this country.

Yes, the Trump/MAGA braindead faction is far more likely to (once again) call for deporting the "illegal" native Americans than to ask for their help in anything.

We could put a bunch of cardboard cutouts of Obama all over the forests and pay hookers to piss on them. Dampen the forests real quick.

lmao if you polled herpes in the NJ Dem primary it would get more than 5%

He's gonna retire.
Of course, if that had been a Republican caught taking millions (or billions) from middle eastern countries after granting them major political favors, the Republicans have proven they see that as a non-issue.

So maybe Menendez should run instead as the Republican candidate?

So, some of the gold has been identified by the FBI as having been owned by, stolen from and returned to the accused briber.
