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!!!
