Yes, in the scope (not the mouthwash) of life, if something in the news doesn’t affect me personally, yep……I don’t give a very big rats ass. Even a small rats ass.
Now you may be saying to yourself, WTF! Is this guy totally insensitive?
Well, the answer would be a big resounding NO!
So let me clarify my statement. I care about people in need. Charitable causes. Animals, and all that sort of stuff. What I’m talking about is things like this big flap over Planned Parenthood.
Yes…I realize that there are people who are going totally ballistic over “claims” that PP is selling baby parts etc, etc, etc. And pro-life activists are seizing this opportunity to push for defunding PP. Let’s see where that goes.
But does it affect ME? No. Do I give a rats ass what the hell PP is doing. NO! You wanna get all bent outta shape and spend your life on these righteous causes. Good luck pal.
Let’s put this in perspective. I think the late George Carlin put it very well. And……if the shoe fits….wear it.
But like I said. I don’t give a flying f**k who does what to their bodies or attempt to tell other people what to do with their bodies. And I sure as hell know a bigggggggggggggg political football when I see it.
Ya know what! I care about what affects ME and MY life personally. And I care so much about MY life that I spend considerable time worrying about MY life rather than WTF other people are doing with their lives. As long as it….and I will repeat this…………….as long as it DOESN’T AFFECT ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Which basically means the rest of you who care what other people do if it doesn’t affect your lives, are a bunch of busy bodies who have nothing better to do than worry about WTF everyone else is doing. Get a freakin’ life for cripes sake!
Now here are some examples of news (and I use the term “news” loosely) that were on the Internet today. Should I care about……………..
Yep….biggggg news. Do I care. f**k no!
“Rolling Stone trolls Mike Huckabee: GOP candidate admits he won’t rule out sending in federal troops to stop abortions”
Well, they’re aren’t any abortions going on in my town, and if there were, none of my damn business, so do I give a rats ass what the hell lame brained idea Mike F**kabee comes up with? NO! Besides…….ya really think this would ever happen. If ya do, seek help immediately.
Ok….this doesn’t affect my life either. I have coverage. It works. And I’m content. The only lives this affects are the people who detest Obamacare because it’s “Obamacare.” Period.
Now to give you an example of what I DO care about, but, still, doesn’t personally affect my life, but only makes me wonder how people who kill innocent animals live with themselves, is this headline:
Yes, I know there are reasons to humanely kill animals for food. I DO understand that. But for sport! My thinking is that if you love to kill animals for sport, then you could also be capable of killing a person. Just sayin.’
(quote from the story) “Some people just can’t let sleeping dogs lie. Or in the case marrying same-sex couples. One couple – the very straight and very Christian Oklahoma couple Betty and Dick Odgaard – are so offended and bothered by the prospect of same-sex marriages that they not only shut down their one-stop wedding venue, but they are planning to put up 1,000 antigay billboards.”
So what DOES affect ME personally. Unlike things that do not affect me personally.
THIS is what you do gooders should be worrying about:
Yeah…I worry about that because my secret recipe for Italian meatballs could be compromised.
And THIS next one is NOT what you should be worrying about, but paying more attention to if only to get your hands on one, go out tooling down the highway, and REALLY not giving a rats ass WTF anyone else is doing or saying…..
“Dodge’s most extreme Viper, the 2016 ACR, is here”
In conclusion, if half of you worryworts spent as much time concerning yourselves with things that YOU CAN do something about that is worthwhile and isn’t about trying to run other people’s lives and the decisions they make, the world would be a much better place.
Example. (humbly) Many of you know I spent 8 months writing my book “Forgotten” about two WWII pilots who were killed over my town in 1944. Both young, 20 and 22. Their lives ended in an instant. And for 70 years, and I have to use my favorite term again, no one gave a rats ass. UNTIL……until our local VFW erected a temporary memorial plaque in their honor and are now trying to raise funds to build a permanent memorial.
My part. I wrote the book to tell the story of these two pilots. For profit? NO! I wanted to learn about who they were, their lives, dreams and who they left behind.
Now I’m not a Donald Trump here. I have limited funds available to me to publish this book. So I’ve created a “gofundme” account to ask for donations so the book can be published. Do people care? Well, two people do. That’s the number of people who have donated. Sad isn’t it. We worry and stick our noses into everyone’s problems, such as the stories above, but for something we CAN do something about we don’t.
No, for the record, I will not make a profit from this book as all donations FIRST go to getting it published. All sales derived from the book will go directly to the VFW until they reach their goal and have enough funds to erect that permanent memorial. Once that memorial is erected and people still buy my book, then and only then will I make a profit.
So, there ya have it. My rant for today.
Go ahead and worry about things you can’t do anything about whether it be Planned Parenthood, Benghazi, Clinton, Huckabee, Trump, whatever, and spew your hatred and disgust all over the Internet. If that makes you feel like you’ve accomplished something and THAT’S what your life is all about……good luck being uptight all the time.
Me……….I don’t give a rats ass. But I DO give a rats ass about what I can do and accomplish without worrying about what everyone else in the world is doing with their lives.
Doesn’t affect me. Can’t change it. Don’t care.
