It’s My Own Damn Fault

“Some people say that there’s a woman to blame, but I know, it’s my own damn fault.”  —Jimmy Buffet.  “Margaritaville”

It is always someone else’s fault.  Have you noticed that, here in America?

It’s the refs.  It’s the government.  It’s the schools.  It’s the church.  It’s my pastor.  It’s President Biden.  It’s Donald Trump.  It’s the media. It’s the Left.  It’s the Right.  It’s racism.  It’s the courts.  It’s my spouse.  The Devil made me do it.

It’s the mirror.  That is one place no one wants to look.  What was it Michael Jackson sang…?

I’m starting with the man in the mirror. I’m asking him to change his ways. And no message could have been any clearer. If you wanna make the world a better place. Take a look at yourself and then make a change.

Personal responsibility is a tough pill to swallow.  It is so much more comforting to blame someone else for the mess that we have made of this nation. The church sucks.  The family sucks.  The government sucks.  The schools suck.

Life is about choices.  Some good.  Some bad.  But at the end of the day, WE are all responsible for the choices we make.  Until you accept the fact that it is your own damn fault nothing will ever change. Sorry Flip Wilson, the Devil didn’t make you do it.

No one made you over eat.

No one made you get married.

No one made you send your kids to government schools.

No one made you take the jab.

No one made you buy what you could not afford.

No one made you wear a mask.

No one made you follow the Dr’s orders.

No one made you sit down and shut up.

No one made you believe things that are not true.

No one made you blindly obey the experts.

No one made you lose your courage.

No one made you let the children run the house.

No one made you take drugs.

No one made you start drinking.

No one made you watch porn.

No one made you let your children be educated by non-believing teachers.

No one made you lie.

No one made you believe Dr. Fauci…or Mitch McConnell…or Pelosi.

No one made you identify Bruce Jenner as a woman.

No one made you call abortion “choice.”

No one made you believe that America was a racist nation.

No one made you stop judging right from wrong.

No one made you act politically correct.

No one made you believe illegal immigrants were not criminals.

No one made you believe J6 was an armed insurrection.

No one made you believe Christianity was non-violent.

No one made you take-out those student loans.

No one made you believe 2 planes brought down 3 towers.

No one made you believe that The Patriot Act would make you safer.

No one made you believe that not getting involved was a good idea.

Sorry.  Soooo much of what you have been led to believe simply is not true.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” Soren Kierkegaard

Open your eyes.  Look in the mirror.  Stop blaming others for your own gullibility.  America is a mess.

It’s our own damn fault.
