Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, November 02, 2017

Fossil fuels can help prevent sexual assault, Energy Secretary Rick Perry said Thursday. Perry described his belief at an energy policy event in Washington hosted by Axios and NBC News, while talking about how bringing power to African villages would save lives. "But also from the standpoint of sexual assault, when the lights are on, when you have light that shines, the righteousness, if you will, on those types of acts," Perry said. "So from the standpoint of how you really affect people's lives, fossil fuels is going to play a role in that. I happen to think it's going to play a positive role."

Rick Perry: bringing the light of righteousness to backward rapists. Hallelujah.

------------------

Glory be to the Bomb and to the holy fallout as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Almighty and everlasting Bomb, who came down among us to make heaven under Earth, lighten our darkness. Oh Instrument of God, grant us Thy peace.

Almighty Bomb Who destroyed all devils And created angels Behold His glory.

All things bright and beautiful All creatures great and small All things wise and wonderful The good Bomb made us all. He gave us eyes to see with And lips that we might tell How great the Bomb Almighty Who made all things well.

May the blessings of the Bomb Almighty and the fellowship of the Holy Fallout descend on us all, this night and for evermore. Amen.

Solar energy can provide light without needing to transport fuel or to conduct electricity through a non-existent grid. Rick Perry is a dumb ass.

"Perry, as energy secretary, is in charge of maintaining and securing America's vast nuclear arsenal, among other things."

So I'm reading Rick Perry's wiki page, and he doesn't have a degree in anything useful to FEMA, like civil engineering. His is animal science. So he was the Texas Agriculture Commissioner before he became the 47th Texas state governor.

This is one reason why our government screws up all the time - political appointees run things instead of professionals being promoted from within.

Also, Karl Rove spent $3 million on him to get him elected, so he's tainted with evil.

Hmm, incompetence under Fiscal Policies, and some corruption under Health Care, according to Wiki.

I should have posted: "Trump Proposes Reopening Grand Canyon to Uranium Mining"

www.courthousenews.com

And I'm sure adviser was like: "No sir, the Democrats won't have a problem with that at all."

Maybe someone else can post it.

So. In Perry's mind, sexual assault only occurs in the dark?

How disassociated is he from reality?

I'll admit, it does seem like it's been a while since a Republican said something stupid about rape.

Perry got stupid during a debate ~ "Ah, I can't remember the other one."

His excuse was that his back was hurting,

OK, that worked once. But was his back hurting during this energy meeting or is he just prone to saying stupid things all the time?

I understand why Trump likes Rick Perry. He makes Trump look like a f'n genius.

Someone is off his meds again.

You also aren't worthy of the name Tyler Durden. You obviously missed the ENTIRE point of the book and movie.

No cjk85, he is not, but he is still a moron.

Rick Perry, just another heartless Republican moron. Another shining example of how Trump will hire the best people. Like Ben Carson, he's put in charge of a Department he knows nothing about and wanted to abolish.

No, it's worse than that as he's the Secretary of Energy.
