Nothing seems to be the message of our times. Nothing matters…elections…relationships…friendship…our word…anybody else…love…honor…valor…N-O-T-H-I-N-G!
We’re living in a time of spoken clichés…nothing ventured nothing gained, nothing up anyone’s sleeve, a fistful of nothing, next to nothing, nothing between her legs (See: Below!), little or nothing, which all amount to…N-O-T-H-I-N-G!
Let me explain: There is no venture capitalism from which to gain; everyone’s got something up their sleeve these days so we are in a period of null and void (a euphemism for N-O-T-H-I-N-G). A fistful of nothing is what most of us have, except the banks and rich Republicans; ditto, we all have little or nothing…
…as I said: this is a country about N-O-T-H-I-N-G. Thank you Jerry Seinfeld, who himself got rich off of N-O-T-H-I-N-G!
William Shakespeare must be doing nothing in his grave, but L-A-U-G-H-I-N-G as we as a
nation have devolved into a nation that is much ado about N-O-T-H-I-N-G!
America has become a play on Shakespeare’s words. It’s just as the title says it is: Much To Do about Nothing. As the title’s meaning implies: a great fuss about very little — in this case a country that had been made of something but which is quickly becoming N-O-T-H-I-N-G!
Here are a few examples of how we have become nothing because we seem hell-bent on making much ado about nothing. Consider that because President Obama’s middle name is Hussein, there are those who insist that The President of the United States, Barack Obama is therefore a Muslim (and that would somehow make him a threat); Mitt Romney ran Bain Capital even when he didn’t run Bain Capital, therefore he’s not suitable for anything, most of all being President of the United States; Barack Obama is a Socialist because he enacted The Affordable Care Act as originally created by the Republicans, specifically Mitt Romney, who therefore – I digress into nothing — must be a Socialist, too.
Oh, and by the way, let’s bring into the discussion vaginas, about which there’s been much ado about nothing this election cycle. Why? Because the Republicans, who have built the Romney campaign on a lot of NOTHING, have focused on their most favorite topic of nothing – vaginas – and who shall own them: Roe (Obama) or Wade (Romney), truly a discussion of nothing since Roe beat Wade a long time ago, although according to Republicans, there’s nothing in that truth.
Which takes me back to William Shakespeare and Much Ado About Nothing…I’ll bet you didn’t know that “Nothing” was Elizabethan slang for “vagina”, apparently derived from the pun of a woman having “nothing” between her legs.
Proving that in the world of Nothing…nothing is as it seems, because if there is one thing women have…it is indeed, something between their legs, even in a country about N-O-T-H-I-N-G!
