racists run around saying dumb crap like
i want my country back
which everyone knows just means progress scares you
and you’re uncomfortable that theres a black president steering the ship
where everything is going exactly as you feared:
the u.s. was so low when obama took over that some people thought the republicans werent even trying
“lets let things get worse before things get better and then we can re-take the white house and everyone will love us again.”
but the stock market is up, housing is back, unemployment is down,
bin laden dead, people have health insurance, and the cubs are playing incredibly.
and people can try to discount all of those achievements and say this or that about them
but one thing they cannot deny
under obama we have felt safer.
we are not hyper paranoid about every little thing.
we have gotten our country back.
theres no more ridiculous terror alerts. theres no more
fear fear fear
being shoved at us. which no one believed anyway, but still.
i appreciate that.
quality of life means something to me, so thank you for not lying all day to me
so i would buy into your malarkey.
am i thrilled about the government spying on me?
but im enjoying pretty much everything else.
