How much can I blame someone else for my troubles?

October 22nd, 2008 at 02:16 pm

I walked into Walgreens today only to hear right off the bat how it's all Bush's fault for the economic troubles we face (3 Wags employees standing around talking). Now, I'm not taking a stance on this one - that's not my point.

Here's my point: how many people would rather find someone else to blame for their woes, when they could have really impacted/made better their own lives with a better attitude? Too much time is wasted looking to shed our accountability and blame someone else.

    You are so right, Snoopy. Personal responsibility is sorely lacking in this country. Far too many people want to blame someone or something for their own problems. Most often, the problems are caused by the person we see in the mirror.

    I also agree. What is worse, is that so many people seem to expect "the government" to take care of them, instead of taking responsibility for their own lives.
    I'll never forget the comment a big, muscular, young man said, on camera, after Katrina. His comment: "If you can't depend on the government to take care of you, who can you depend on?" He was furious that he was only getting $2,000.00 in cash for emergency funds, instead of $20,000.00. Are we are becoming a society of dependent people who won't take personal responsibility?

    Nance, this administration is strongly encourages extra government involvement to the point of erosion of our freedoms.

    Yes I can blame Bush - for running the national deficit to unprecedented levels, for starting a war under false pretenses(and how much did that cost and who profited from it?- this is egregious corruption), for his foreign policy, for giving the richest people tax breaks we as a nation cannot afford... and for many more things. I think he is the worst president in US history.

    That said, personally I am doing fine. I am responsible for my own finances and I hate the idea of the bailout and the stimulus checks. We have to think of the long term interest of our country, not of what we could do with the extra windfall.

    The consequences of Bush administration did throughout the last 8 years are not fully here yet. Our children and grandchildren will be experiencing them.

    People have no idea what the Constitution says, clearly. No idea the role of government.
