I have simply had it. My tolerance for annoyance has reached it’s limit, and it is time for me to rant to anyone who will listen (or read in this case), so I can get this off my chest and out of my head.
Be warned: I am NOT feeling politically correct. I do not have alliances with any political or media interests. This is no manifesto. These are the feelings of a 60-ish-year-old woman who is really, REALLY disgusted. With pretty much the whole world and most of the people in it.
The last straw, leading up to this post, was one of the many surveys I take to support Diabetes Research. I take five a week sometimes, and they always have the same ‘screening’ questions at the beginning. What used to be a simple either/or question has now become more complicated.
I’m reluctant to ask what Non-Binary means, but I googled this term and discovered that people can be more than 2 different genders. What?!?
And while I am ranting, Why are the frequency and stupidity of TV commercials increasing at an alarming rate? It feels like the floodgates opened, and someone let the drugs out. I remember the good old days when pharmaceutical companies were prohibited from advertising on TV. Now they are hogging up the airways with ads that should be geared to doctors and not the general public.
The ads that really blow my mind are the car manufacturer’s ads. They all do the same thing – show colorful imagery, motion, speed, and animation. The visuals are set to loud music and flash everything but the actual car. Until the very last 5 seconds, you see the car and the maker’s logo. Nike also does this kind of ad, and other companies hopped on the bandwagon. Why spend a gazillion bucks to make a commercial that does not advertise your product?
Oh, and those butt-wiping bears have got to GO.
That is the GO that I will enjoy.
