Arbitrary: (adj) based on random choice or personal whim, rather than any reason or system.
When everything is considered important, nothing truly has value.
Half the time I don’t know whether to burst out laughing or cry as I watch the entanglement of emotions in our society, giving place to things, feelings and problems that really just don’t matter.
I am going to give you a list of those things which I find to be arbitrary, and therefore annoying and useless, generating a traffic jams in our human flow:
1. I don’t care if you’re Republican or Democrat. Pass a damn law.
2. I do not care that Kim Kardashian has a large butt. Perhaps some of it should be transferred to her cranium.
3. I do not care, on The Voice, if you have a family, children, a mother with cancer or are going through a financial hard time. I thought you wanted to be a singer, not a hard case. Shut up and sing.
4. I do not care about church doctrine. I want you to tell me better ways to “love my neighbor as myself.”
5. I certainly am appalled at the views some folks have of women, using religion to punish them, which creates a self-defeating environment where you soon will have nobody to romance.
6. I do not care to hear about every time a celebrity is in a bad mood. After all, since they have financial security, they should probably pursue a traditional form of gratitude to rectify their surly nature.
7. I don’t care if you’re black, white, red, yellow, brown, tan, rose, pink or any particular hue. I would just like you to be nicer.
8. I would like people who are caught in hypocrisy to admit that they were hit by a dumb stick instead of hitting me with a stick and acting like I am dumb for challenging them.
9. I would like to live in a world where truth is still honored and lying is considered to be a negative thing instead of a “natural” thing.
10. I would like the 24-hour news cycle to at least take a daily nap so they don’t have to embellish every little stupid thing that comes along.
And even though I am supposed to end at #10, I will do an 11th, which is:
11. I am tired of the spiritual, political and social correctness which promises the right of free speech, but only as long as you agree with the majority.
If we remain determined to make everything a story … there will soon be no true stories to tell.
