We live in a society of zero personal responsibility.
This has become the fabric of our society.
You even see this attitude in schools.
Elementary schools blame parents for not having their children ready for an education.
They can’t read. They can’t write. They eat crayons by the dozens. They attack each other with pencils.
They should all be heavily medicated.
Middle schools blame the Elementary schools for not getting those same kids prepared for 5th – 8th grade.
They aren’t good at math. Or science. Or writing.
They can’t sit still. They can’t read. They have no social skills. Their hygiene is horrendous (this part may well be true).
They don’t care about anything (except sports and dating).
High schools blame everyone.
They have to fix everything the elementary, middle school, and parents messed up.
Colleges are just disgusted.
They get students who aren’t prepared for the rigors of higher education, so they have to re-teach the skills students should have learned during their K-12 years.
It never stops.
School districts blame state governments for not sending them enough money (by enough I mean… more, and more, and more).
States blame the Federal Government.
Congress blames the President.
The President blames Congress.
Democrats blame Republicans.
George W. Bush gets blamed for everything.
It goes on and on.
The only thing that doesn’t change is the fact that no one ever stands up and says…
“My fault. Blame me. I could have done better.”
To err is human. To blame someone else is politics – Hubert H. Humphrey.
