If you could permanently ban a word from general usage, which one would it be? Why?
A word I’d ban today would be “racist.” That word has been stretched and pulled beyond its original purpose and made into a kind of joke which any joe-blow can throw out when they want to throw a tantrum upon having their unjustified feelings hurt for something someone they don’t even know, that has nothing to do with them ..said.
Everyone today is a racist. The simple name calling “bitch” is racist. “A-hole” is racist. Any bad word that a person uses against another is “racist.” A bad name is a bad name it doesn’t mater what it is and who it’s towards, it’s wrong and immature and since every single one of us each come from a different race…..all bad names are racist.
Seriously the next must-have technological innovation is here! Get the App called “The Guilt Wiper”.
Simply scan your eyes with the device and relax as the green bar lights up its electromagnetic frequency particle changer that will ionize the insular cortex section of your brain. But it only erases the guilty feelings. Apparently it has no effect on the brains ability to perceive pain levels nor does it impair basic emotions of anger, disgust, horror, sadness and happiness.
No more worrying if you don’t do what your boss says! No worries if you leave your kid in the car while you play some b-ball with the guys! No more worries if you drop that dinner on the floor, pick it up and serve it! No more worries when you cut that driver off causing a 10 car pile up! No more worries when your pet python eats your baby! No more worries for picking on the person way smaller than you-feel like the cool person you believe you are! No more worries when you shoot someone for calling you a name-you tuf guy you! And no more worries for telling your mother in law NO, she can not attend Christmas Diner! And the list goes on and on!!

Daily Prompt: The Next Big Thing
Unconventional is defined as deviating from the norm. Something or someone that doesn’t fall in line with majority thought, act, belief or habit.
Unconventional love just may be the norm these days. When it comes to falling in love with another human, people have strayed so far from how that experience was defined for a millennium. Your born, you grow, you are paired with one person and you love them for eternity.
Love is no longer reserved for that one outstanding amazing moment when you give your heart to some one that will hold it and keep it safe until you both die. Now people give their most prize possession away over and over again to various kinds of dubious people each time receiving it back a little smaller than before.
And unless you are one of the few who were taught all about love and who have been lucky enough to find your true love right at the start….
I’d say love today, sadly, is very unconventional and that seems to be accepted as the norm.

The Daily Post Prompt: April 30
Do you need to agree with an artist’s lifestyle or politics to appreciate their art? To spend money on it?
For me art is an emotion and if the artist is of Faith and creates with pure, positive intentions in mind, than that really adds value to the work.Knowing the beautiful, quirky, unique piece was created by a nifty person just makes the whole package. As far as politics goes it’s an artists oath to portray the truth without malice. So the only people who would disagree with a political truthful message has a character supported on lies and ignorance. And artists who seek out to hurt someone to get their point across is no better than the problem.
I don’t understand how anyone would want art or support it (sometimes spending a fortune) on art that is just plain vulgar and stupid. That is not art that’s what a child does when he’s throwing a tantrum just to get noticed.
