Focal Passage: Matthew 24:2– “Truly I say to you, not one stone here will be left upon another, which will not be torn down.”

Prayer Time WIth Perry

Prayer Time WIth Perry

You may have heard that I told an Iowa audience that Washington doesn’t just need a new coat of paint: “We need to uproot, tear down and rebuild Washington, D.C.,” I told ’em.

I know whereof I speak. During my many trips to D.C. over the last 10 years, I’ve dined at the fanciest restaurants, stayed in the most expensive hotels and hobnobbed with the mighty and the powerful– to the tune of about $200,000 in food and lodging. I had to take a large security detail with me to insure I wouldn’t be infected with the seediness of the place. When I saw all the wasted tax dollars and political posturing going on all around me, I nearly choked on my air-dried Kobe beef appetizer. I can tell you, the whole city is rotten to the core.

But because I’ve been to their hiding places like the lobbyist-friendly Occidental Grill and Cafe Milano, I can find those Washington insiders and smoke ’em out, just like our Lord did to the moneychangers in the Temple.

Of course, I figure my administration will get better results than he did.
