It’s been a while since I felt like writing something. It’s hard to think when I can’t focus.
Some of the offerings on TV have been pathetic. There are soap operas in the daytime, there are soap operas at night. Most of the soap operas focus on rich people. Whoopee. Ordinary people lead interesting lives also. I mean survival of course. Things that are more important than just wearing the “right” designer; Being so skinny that you could be from a third world country; going to the “right” restaurant; hanging out with the “right” crowd. Get real people!
Ordinary people work each day to keep a roof over their heads. They scramble to put food on the table. When a child gets sick, they fight to raise the money to pay for medicine and medical bills. Why are ordinary people ignored? What they have to do to survive each day, going from one payday to the next, isn’t glorious. However, the fight for survival is very real. It’s not phony, made up, or falsely glamorized. Yet, everywhere we look in the media, we have snooty rich people pushed into our faces. These rich people get treated as if they are better than ordinary folks just because their wallets are fatter, or their faces are seen by cameras. Why are they allowed to get away with dangerous behavior that would have ordinary people locked away? Go figure.
