God is going to supply a million dollars, somebody is praying right now, right this second, you’re praying for a million dollars and God said, 'I have heard your prayer, I know your need, and I'm going to supply the need that you requested,' it's done, in Jesus' name.
Sure, Robertson was talking about his viewers, who may have already won one million dollars in the Pearly Gates Publishers Sweepstakes, but there's no reason we can't adopt this strategy to fix our deficits.
We just need the Treasury Department to hire some hedge fund managers. God sure seems to love answering their prayers.

After Bob Woodward revealed that a White House official told him he would "regret" saying Barack Obama is negotiating the sequester in bad faith, the internet rage-o-sphere demanded to know the identity of this goon and the nature of his threat.
Now we know: the thug in question is Director of the National Economic Council Gene Sperling, and his vicious email to Woodward begins: "I apologize for raising my voice in our conversation today."
If that doesn't make your blood run cold, this will: "I know you may not believe this, but as a friend, I think you will regret staking out that claim." Ooooh. That sounds like… a warning that a journalist may be getting the story wrong, not a threat. Then again, this Gene Sperling is a very intimidating character:

Nice to know Sarah Palin's brain keeps the same schedule as her gubernatorial career. It worked pretty hard on the first part of this Facebook post about the sequester, then quit halfway through:
If we are going to wet our proverbial pants over 0.3% in annual spending cuts when we're running up trillion dollar annual deficits, then we're done. Put a fork in us. We're finished. We're going to default eventually and that's why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest.
No idea what this used-to-be-important lady is not talking about when she says that "the feds" are "stockpiling bullets"?
Last year, the media reported on the government making bulk purchases of ammo (because savings), leading the Alex Joneses and Glenn Becks of the world to speculate about Barack Obama's plan to shoot Americans he personally dislikes (because crazy).
So it appears Palin is joining the conspiracy-mongers, but then again, maybe she's just trying to save the economy. Growth in the tinfoil hat business could totally offset those pesky budget cuts. Think about it!
