How about we do something good for those World Vision kids in Sri Lanka? Feed those kids a fish, they eat for a day; give them a job praying for rich free-market American evangelicals and they’ll eat for a lifetime. We’ll set up webcams in a Sri Lankan prayer factor for the Tea Party folks to monitor their workforce; we get an endorsement from Franklin Graham. “Results guaranteed by God: he works in mysterious ways!”
