Let the sun and light come streaming into my life

Pretty pictures, pretty people. Take a look around.

We’ve destroyed 90% of the fishes. Coral reefs in the entire planet will be gone in 20 years. That’s an irreversible situation. That’s the first major collapse of an ecosystem on the planet. People are really ecologically stupid. We don’t realize that if we just wipe out a couple of species here, we’re gone.

There are 41 wars being fought around the world right now. Most of us are busy and we race through our weeks without paying a great deal of attention, but yesterday this week stopped, because one of those wars reached into the sky and grabbed 298 people who could have been any of us.

"You can’t just change the race of cultural icons like Captain America! It’s an important part of their identity and message!"

Jesus: Ah yes.

Jesus: Can’t imagine who would do that.

Jesus: What a shame.

The Obama administration is allowing millions of people to come in without the skills to compete in the marketplace.

Bill O’Reilly’s criticism of migrant children escaping the drug war by coming to the United States: No real-life job skills.

Unlike American children, of course. Our world-class educational system is renowned for endowing us with real-life job skills. By the time we’re 4 years old we’ve already mastered Excel and the Adobe suite, and by 7 or 8 we’re creating workflow processes within native content management systems. At 10, you’re developing cloud-based mobile software solutions. When I was 12 years old I spoke ten programming languages and was managing a team of more than 300 toddlers across our marketing, R&D, IT, and accounting departments. By 13, each and every American child has the skills to compete in the global job market.

Unlike those lazy migrant children, who only know how to take care of themselves on their own and seek better opportunities in another country.
