We mentioned dreams so we thought to say something
about the opposite end of the spectrum. Playing the
blame game. In our modern society we have a lot of
people who aren’t happy. We have riots, road rage,
racist attacks, and anger seems at an all time
The root cause of all this misery is the same
regardless of the circumstances. It boils down to
this: if you aren’t happy with yourself, nobody
else can make you happy either.
We had these problems back in our day but with one
exception. We took personal responsibility and if
we failed, screwed up, or got arrested, we admitted
it. Now all we hear is racism, lack of jobs, lack
of money, lack of respect, and even the police have
been blamed for the problems.
And all are the symptoms but not the cause. The
cause of all the anger is because these people are
not happy with the direction their lives have taken
them. So they sit on the pity pot and play the
blame game and the race card while trying to
portray themselves as victims.
It is past time to look in the mirror and find the
root cause of all the problems. The problem isn’t
that 150 years ago someone owned slaves, the
problem is some would rather loot and riot than
acquire the skills necessary to get a job.
The problem is some think the world owes them a
living. They forget that what one gets free another
has to pay for.
Some say too many blacks are getting arrested for
committing crimes so their answer is to kill
members of law enforcement. This brings an old
adage to mind “don’t do the crime if you can’t do
The problem is too many people are spewing too
much hate. The time has come for all to remember we
are Americans. While all these groups have been
letting their grievances be known they haven’t been
paying attention to what is going on around them.
Quit running with the crowd mentality and think!
