"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." - Benjamin Franklin;
"And when politicians find that honor and character matter less than buying votes and a constituency, that too will herald the end of the Constitution. When that happens we must work tirelessly to change their minds, or their occupation!" - Hoping The Blind Will See

Is The War For Personal Responsibility In America Finally Lost?

By now most of you have undoubtedly seen the video of the woman walking through the mall, texting on her cell phone and falling into a fountain. Was anyone's picture clear enough to distinguish who she was? I'm sure that answer is no. Personally I could care less, and no one would ever have figured out who she was, if she had just kept her mouth shut and laughed off the event as "just one of those things." Instead, this woman has decided that she is going to sue the mall! Really? And the mall was responsible how?

She was a bit emotional as she discussed the event on the news, so perhaps she felt humiliated because people were laughing at her. Really? And that's whose fault? Is her psyche that fragile? She doesn't see the humor? Do we have to worry about everyone's mental strength before we react to something we see or hear? Is laughing at something stupid going to be eradicated from American society by the PC police too? Give me a break! This woman, whoever she is, seems to have some self-esteem issues, is perhaps mentally fragile, and definitely lacks sufficient sense of humor to deal effectively with  the results of her actions. And she doesn't understand the concept of personal responsibility! Oh well, lock me up now I guess, because stupid things do make me laugh!!

As for the answer to the title question? Time will tell...

Stand With God, Stand For Liberty (and personal responsibility), And Prepare To Fight For Both!


  1. common sense has gone out the window with the other things that morons throw out there. Just one more REDICULOUS assumption by todays citizens that everything is SOMEONE ELSES FAULT
