It Wasn’t My Fault

I didn’t do it. Nope, it wasn’t me. I can’t help it, the economy is bad. Poor guy, he didn’t mean to do it, he was drunk. It was probably the violence on those video games. There is so much gore in movies these days. Blah, blah, blah.

Really??!! When does it end? At what point do we wake up and give society as a whole a good ole bitch slap? Seriously, people!

Yes, you did do it. We know it was you. You can help it, your economy is the same as everyone else’s. I don’t feel bad for him, he meant to drink, now didn’t he??!! Who let them play the violent video games??? There has been gore in movies for 30 years!

Time to quit whining and own up to our responsibilities people. All of us. Deadbeat parents, not just dads, there are lots of dads out there raising kids alone these days. People who refuse to accept responsibility for any of their actions, big, small and in between, from parenting to coloring their hair.

You know who I love these days, people who stand up and say, “I made a huge mistake!” I will forgive those people time and time again. I will also likely stab asshats like the BP executives who play Who’s On First when they make a mistake, rather than accepting their responsibility and helping people move forward.

I know men who get violent when they drink certain types of alcohol. They are adults. They choose not to drink those particular types of alcohols, because they are not raging bags of shitgrass. If you know a man who gets violent when he drinks a certain type of alcohol and he is over the age of 25, but he drinks it anyway, guess what? He is not a “poor guy” case. He is a raging bag of shitgrass and should be kicked to the literal, not proverbial curb!

I have a big problem with parents who let their children stare into a television screen for 5 or 6 hours a day playing a video game, with no knowledge of what type of game the child is even playing. Then want to blame the creators of those video games when the child acts out. Really?? Where in the hell have you been in this child’s life? Video game creators are artists, it is not now, nor has it ever been, their job to babysit or raise your child. It is our responsibility to be parents to the children we bring into this world. By the way, if you’ve never been here before, I have opinions. 😉

Hollywood produces better graphics every day. Movie-goers love blood, guts, gore, intensity, glitter, shimmer, vampires, sorcerers, ….oh wait, sorry… I mixed genres there for a second. Anyway, yeah, movies can be ugly. They also have ratings. Use them. People have been complaining about this since back when Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street all began. You have the option of not watching. Some of us love the gory stuff, take responsibility for your own viewing choices and parent your children, rather than trying to police the rest of us.

Lastly, sadly, devastatingly, actually. Late yesterday afternoon a Louisville Metro Police Officer who was also a volunteer fireman, father of two young daughters and husband was killed while riding his bicycle on a wide open, high visibility stretch of road. The driver first stated it was a horrible mistake and they simply didn’t understand how they didn’t see him. It was revealed late this afternoon the driver was texting. Texting!!! Does that help clear up how it happened??? Do you understand now how you could have not seen him, swerved off of the road and hit and killed this man who has dedicated his life to serving others???? Personal responsibility. Ownership of our own actions. Consideration of the consequences of the actions we take and how they may affect the lives of others.
