When "It ain't about nothing" what do
you do? You will fine the answer below.
How you can avoid letting chatter
and clucking rob you of peace of mind.

It ain't about nothing is a truism and, when
embraced, it frees the mind of confusion.
The pronoum "it" is used as a subject or direct
object or indirect  object of a verb or of a proposition
that covers much of what humans experience in living.

It ain't about nothing specifically refers to the mass
media, TV, radio and the printed word. It is
synonymous with chatter and jiving, or what Ernest
Hemingway calls "crap" which by detecting it led
to his success, or what Harry G. Frankfurt, renowned
moral philosopher and Professor of Philosophy
Emeritus at Princeton University, calls "bullshit" as
presented in his book  titled "Bullshit."

TV, radio, the internet, and more recently, cell
phones, and printed media are vehicles that 
deliver information, much of which is misinformation,
purportedly that comes from authorities or experts on
subjects they have little or no knowledge about. We
can ony guess the amount of damage these "law
and gospel" pontificators inflict upon their victims.

At  a minimum it is wisdom to approach these
pseudo-authorities with honest skepticism. And
beyond that subject what they say to scrutiny.
Indeed, wise is the person who in recognizing
It ain't about nothing chatter and clucking chooses
not to give it the light of day. When you encounter
crap, let this refrain resound from the depth of your
It ain't about nothing.
Nothing from nothing leaves nothing.
Heed your conscience and excuse yourself when
you are in the presence of pseudo-authorities.
It ain't about nothing because "they ain't
about nothing" that is right for you.

Quite thought provoking, Uriah! I will remember this work in the future when I need to be reminded of its profound message.
Continued success-

Pseudo-authorities abound and are growing by the pound. Did you ever notice that most of them are rather fat cats. Bullshit is good for one thing, fertilizing the garden.

I like your rant and your observation that “it ain't about nothing.”
