Come out, Come out, Wherever You Are

Long ago someone told me, “Bill, if you don’t speak up no one will hear you.” Since that time I have never had a problem speaking my mind. The only thing wrong is I sometimes think no one is listening. Oh, they say things like “I understand exactly what you’re saying.” or “That’s an interesting perspective. I’ll think about it and get back with you.”

Well, I’m waiting! If you understand, why don’t you do something? Holy smoke! How long to you have to think about? If you think to long I’ll meet my maker before you get back with me.

That may be the idea. They are going to wait me out.

Well, I think it’s time to quit waiting and take some action! It’s time to stand up and shout, “Wake up Mr./Madame Elected Official! Can’t you see that we are tired of waiting for you to realize that our State (you can add any State in this spot) and America is In The Pickle Barrel? When are you going to stop all of the petty bickering, name calling and political games. When are you going to  get your job done? Come out, come out wherever you are.

Mr./Madame Elected Official, I willing to bet a lot of you have forgotten why you were elected (your job).. Here’s a clue…listen to your campaign promises and read the propaganda that you mailed to me.

One more thing. I hope you noticed I didn’t refer to you as Mr. President, Senator, Congressman, Councilman or the Honorable. Before I address you with these titles, earn them. Just because you were elected to these positions, it doesn’t mean your currently earning the title.

Once again, I’m waiting for an answer. However, you are running out of time. A lot of you are up for re-election. Something you may want to think about.
