It wasn't Obama's fault. Or Bush's. Or Clinton. It's OUR fault.

    Ok. I'm sick of it. I'm sick of blaming presidents. No 1 man in the world is powerful enough to cause all our ills or joys. They are easy targets. Like head coaches in the NFL. When it goes bad, they are to blame, when there are hundreds of reasons it went wrong.

    It's our fault. Everyone's fault. We are mostly a greedy, hot-tempered fat lazy bunch.

    We're too fat. If we got in shape healthcare wouldn't be as expensive. We're too hot-tempered. It's why telling someone "Hey fat fu** get in shape" isn't tolerated. We're greedy. If McDonalds offers a triple size for the same price, we'll buy it.

    We're too egotistical. If the Jones have a 4 bedroom home, I want a 5. With a garage. If the bank won't loan me the $$, I'll cry racism. Or call someone who will.

    We're not accountable enough. We always want to blame someone else when we fail or feel discomfort. It was my moms fault. Or my boss. Or my governor. Or my president's fault.

    We gotta stop looking to presidents for all the answers to our ills, and blaming them for everything that just didn't work out. They have jobs as feds they must do. Defense. Roads. Some logical social safety net for the disheveled. Thats where it ends. Hold them accountable for those, but stop asking for so much more.


    If anyone else is a fan of the stand up comic Kat Williams, so am I. He's hilarious. He's a left winger too. But thats fine, because he is also smart about it. In his DVD where he talks about politics, he bashes Bush. Praises Obama.

    But then he says that an individual has to say "FU** IT" to all the politics and other shit that really doesn't matter, and take care of yourself and your family first because after that nothing else matters.

    So there. I just wanted to get that out. Our problems are likely our own fault, not a president's. We can and must take care of ourselves.

    Now, I gotta go because I'm headed to the gym. I gained 5 pounds last month, and it's all Obama's fault.:eusa_shhh:

    I've been pointing that out in my blog for a while. Government is corrupt because we the people, collectively and not necessarily every individual, is corrupt.

    We are dishonest.
    We are arrogant
    We expect results immediately and deviate if we don't get them.
    We outsource our charity to the government and wonder why things never get fixed.
    We turn from God and are surprised when society degenerates because of it.
    We give our children to the nanny to raise and wonder why they don't learn anything of value.
    We spend money like crazy, laugh at the idea of thrift, and wonder why the economy fails.
    We spend our time watching TV instead of using our time wisely to actually improve ourselves and the world around us.

    We need individuals to start practicing virtue or our society will quickly destroy itself.

    Blaming the customer doesn't fly in my airspace.

    It's not the victims fault...

    In a general sense it is the fault of the human race, but that is the very nature of the human race. You are going to have to change human nature in your scenario where it's "our fault"...
