Personal Responsibility

Murphy’s Law recently posted a fine piece about Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, her history of massive attempts to violate the rights of legal gun owners, and her mind set.

Politician with cancer smoked for 40 years, sues over asbestos

Distilled down, this is all about personal responsibility.

Now I have a number of health ‘issues’.  Chronic conditions requiring regular monitoring by physicians and prescription medications for blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar regulation and arthritic/neuropathic pain.  My weight is not within the CDC guidelines.  I consume too much fat, protein, carbohydrates and volume.  Probably too much alcohol.  Because of my ‘issues’, I get minimal exercise.  And I’ve an aversion to tofu and most cooked vegetables.  And don’t eat as much salad as I should.

Now, if I get more sick, or when I die, I’ve no expectations of suing beef, cheese, pork, egg, sugar, booze and bread manufacturers because it’s their fault!  That’s asinine!

I’m certainly not the poster boy for always owning up for my errors-in-judgement, but I’m trying.

Murphy’s Law is right.  Rep. McCarthy is the poster child for the ‘it’s their fault, they need to pay’ mindset.

I hope I never get THAT sick!

  1. But Guff! The progtards are so caring and they want to save you from, OMG! Yourself! Even if they have to kill you with a mistaken wrong address, sorry our bad, swat team raid on your abode!
    Personally, I happen to like pork fat. It makes funny twinges in my chest and my fingers tingle.
    Everyone dies, no one gets out alive. It all comes down to how you go. Personally, an old folks home with some vunable “caretaker” changing my diaper is not in my plan.

  2. They don’t have a CLUE about real personal responsibility… They’ve NEVER been held responsible for anything they’ve done!!!

The Four Rules

1. ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED.

2. NEVER POINT YOUR MUZZLE AT SOMETHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY.

3. KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET AND YOU ARE READY TO SHOOT.

4. KNOW YOUR TARGET AND WHAT'S BEYOND.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune

“F**k Civility. Hyperbole, passion, and metaphor are beautiful parts of rhetoric. The marketplace of ideas cannot be toned down for the insane.” - Penn Jillette
