Who Gives a Shit? [View all]

Thinking about the unemployment rate to be released later, and wondering about conservative reaction if things have improved. Why would they cheer bad news and dread good news? Made me think about some other things

If you've got a job, and people are working,
If we're earning more, putting away extra and spending on things we like,
Who gives a shit if he's black?

If we're fixing roads and bridges, building subways and high speed rail
(so that I can one day go from my home in Atlanta to see my niece in Chattanooga in 1/2 an hour)
Who gives a shit if he doesn't look like you?

If our kids can go to the college they want to go to, because of government grants and low interest loans,
If you're able to re-finance your underwater mortgage and reduce your house payment by $1,000 a month,
Who gives a shit if he's not white?

If we employ thousands of people for a new renewable energy industry that will lead the world,
And help to nurse our planet back to health (Have you seen New Jersey lately?),
Who gives a shit if he doesn't "look" like a President (and just what is a Prez supposed to look like, by the way?)

If I can leave a job and still be covered for my insurance,
If I know that I can always get good, affordable healthcare no matter what and no matter when,
Who gives a shit if his name is Barack HUSSEIN Obama?

If women can be equal partners to men, and can live their lives as freely as men have in the past,
If anyone can love and marry whomever they choose without fear, anxiety and grief,
If our wives and daughters can earn just as much as us (which is good for everybody) for doing the same work,
Who gives a shit about a birth certificate? (Would you ask a white candidate for their birth certificate?)

Things are improving. Were moving forward. Conservatives get the fuck over it.
