“We’ve been waiting for you.” – Obama

This just in:  I miss president Obama.  I miss the sanity.  I miss the quiet that comes from knowing the man in charge is not an emotionally damaged child.

The quote that titles this post is Obama talking about the kids taking charge in the gun control debate.

While they are standing up and demanding action, I saw an adult on Facebook blame gun violence on bad parenting, lack of child discipline and not enough God.

I’m supposing he means “his God”.

I just can’t get behind the idea that we can “Beat the mass shootings” out of our children.

I just can’t get behind the idea that more Sunday School will will help.

I just can’t understand how the very people that think More Sunday School will help are actually the main supporters of a position that will ultimately lead to more “conceal and carry” in church to keep us all safe from those kids that were not beaten severely enough as children.

I am waiting for a few things myself….

  1. If you are a woman thinking of running for a political office…I’ve been waiting for you.
  2. If you are under 40 and thinking of running for political office…I’ve been waiting for you.
  3. If you believe in the sciences and want to run for political office…I’ve been waiting for you.
  4. If you believe in equality for all and want to run for office…I’ve been waiting for you.
  5. If you want to help those that need it the most and want to run for office…I’ve been waiting for you.
  6. If you are progressive, always looking forward and want to run for office…I’ve been waiting for you.
  7. If you prefer peaceful solutions over tanks and want to run for office…I’ve been waiting for you.
  8. If you think “ideals” not “money” are important for elected officials and you want to run for office…I’ve been waiting for you.
  9. If you think education makes us stronger and want to run for office…I’ve been waiting for you.
  10. If you think”content of character” is important…I’ve been waiting for you.
  11. If you think facts matter and want to run for office…I’ve been waiting for you.

However…

If you prefer fear; if you prefer opinion over fact; if you think the best way to lead into the future is to pull us into the past; if you think facts don’t matter; if you think the truth is optional; if you think Money = Free speech…then be advised…Your time it coming.  Your days are numbered and when you are gone…I will not weep.

Time to save the world.

Up, up and away…
