    Too Many Bailouts!

    I am so sick of the voices from the current protests saying: "Give us some of what someone (rich capitalist) else has..." They need to take some charge of their own misfortune and stop demanding the government to "fix" things. We all know what happens when the government gets...

    Admit It, Own It, Fix It

    I come from an entire family of people who blame everyone but themselves for their personal miseries in life. I refuse to follow suit. When I make a mistake, I admit it, own it, and work on fixing it. The only person who can change your luck is YOU.

    I'm Not Surprised There Are Only Six Members In This Group

    Lately I have become very fed up with my fellow Americans. I see they are lazy and love to point the finger and blame. The current economic crisis is the fault of Americans not paying their mortgages, their credit card bills, and their car loans. No politician is going...

    You are responsible for your own actions.

    That's an important life lesson I grew up with. It's a shame that many people either were never taught or simply forgot about that lesson and prefer to blame the media for tragic events like school shootings, for example. What has society come to when people are more concerned...

    Of Course

    Personal responsibility seems to be being lost in our society - but let me pose the question; how can you have respect for others or for yourself if you don't also take responsibility for your actions, your ideas and your choices....in truth you need to take responsibility for...

    Admit Our Own Fault...

    Admit our own fault is the better way to access another 'concious path'. One who can say ' It's my fault ' is a giant, those who hire themselves backside an umbrella are 'dwarfs'. Just have enough 'fortitude' to admit Your fault, You're on the way to became a Giant !

    Be a Responsible Human Being.

    Approach yourself with honesty and thoroughness; maintain a kind of spiritual hygiene; stop the blame-shifthing for your errors and shortcomings. Be honest with yourself and be perpared to assume responsibility and accept consequences.

    Twice Over

    When I drove down my street earlier today, there was a sign tacked up on a telephone pole outside a house where the owners are always letting their dogs run loose. It read, "Thanks for killing my little girl's dog." Now, granted; if someone hit the dog and took off...

    In this life, we have to make many choices.

    Some are very important choices. Some are not. The choices we make, however, determine to a large extent our happiness or our unhappiness, because we have to live with the consequences of our choices.

    Blaming everyone around us,

    politics, religion, personal persuasions, whatever...is such a cop out to me. I take full responsibility for myself and my actions/consequences, which there seems to be less and less of in the world today. If it's something I don't have control over, I don't worry about it. It's...
