A quick post, more to come later
Ok, just a quick vent post on something called "personal responsibility". Where the heck has it gone? Everything is a disease, affliction, or someone elses fault. What brought this on (the 4 of you who read this might ask?) is somethings like this.
- Bill Oreilly says "we" (meaning America) are partly to blame for the illegal immigrant problem because we "allowed" them to come here. Ok, it's our "fault" we have a thriving economy and a land of freedoms. Sure, we did nothing to stop them Bill, you know that thing called the border guard and the fence wasn't a clear sign that we wanted people to come in the right way. STFU. On second thought, yeah maybe he has a point, after all we give illegal immigrants free health care and free schooling. Does anyone think for even a second that the illegal immigrants thought it was ok to break into the country? Yeah we don't have a large fence across the border (give the minutemen time though). However, I would counter that with this, if you walk into someone's house and steal their TV it's still theft. Yeah you might not get charged with "breaking and entering" but it's still theft. So illegal immigrants might not be responsible for "breaking into our country" but they are still responsible for the theft of services. Steal cable and see how serious "theft of services can be".
- I read a post on a person's blog recently that talked about a relative having a drinking problem that could cost him his job and his relationship. One of the posters mentioned that it was an "addiction" and that people should talk to this guy gently and firmly. Screw that, it's called "you made a choice to be a drunk, now make a choice to sober up". The libs are famous for labeling something a disease, affliction, problem etc rather then calling it what it is. A serious defect in your ability to make the right damn choice. My family has alkies going back at leat 3 generations yet no one in this generation is, know why cause my siblings and I made the choice not to be. We drink, we party we don't become idiots and let drinking overrun our lives, nuff said. More people need to stand up and say "stop making stupid decisions and you won't have this "affliction".
