Why is it that some people just cannot accept responsibility for things they do? You know it's everything from little things that people to do each other, to big things like the Subprime mortgage crisis. Guys like Bernie Madoff, taking BILLIONS from unknowing investors and more or less pocketing it, the kids picking on the nerd in school, the guy who beats his wife, kids, or animals, the preacher who does bad things to others, we could name a million instances where folks are blatantly the cause of something. The stories are never-ending.
I know folks that get in trouble and blame the police, their teachers, their parents, the medication, their friends, the system, the neighborhood, the drugs and alcohol, TV programs, the "voices", the tough boss, the crappy relationship, temporary insanity, the neighbor's cat, ad nauseum .....that's all hogwash, those excuses are merely a smokescreen to blur the real issue at hand..............each person makes decisions to CHOOSE their actions, so why not just fess up and take responsibility your actions. Would that be too much to ask? Apparently it is for some people.
There always seems to be an excuse for everything, God enough already.
