Try to control government, not Mother Nature

Our president needs to control the atmosphere in the Congress and Senate. Fighting Mother Nature has never happened, and to appoint a person to fight climate control is just another costly job and as hopeless as controlling the sales of guns, stopping senseless shooting or stopping the flow of drugs into the United States.

The president has forgotten the droughts that hit the U.S. in 2012 or the tornadoes that hit major cities in 2012. That was Mother Nature at work.

Our president needs to take hold and control the government in Washington. New work schedules and standards need to be put in place. All recesses and trips home need to be cut out and no furloughs handed out, only numerous holidays and vacations allowed.

It's government's moral obligation to serve our country and its people and to conduct themselves in a orderly manner, as adults. It's what the American people pay them for.
