See this is where I disagree, when I was growing up, I was taught that when I did something wrong it was my fault, when I did something right, I was commended for that. It's called having a little personal responsibility, when they say pull yourself up from the bootstraps, that's what they're talking about.

We'll all know the definition of the term. This is a perfect example of the disconnect from reality. You think everyone should take personal responsibility. Great. Reality is that people don't. Now what do you do?

My brother is a hardcore libertarian, and I've had this conversation with him many times. His answer to the question is at least straight forward and ideologically sound: if the people can't or won't take on all the responsibility for themselves, then they can die in the streets. I'm thankful that most of American society doesn't agree with him.

And why do you keep bringing up Obama and Bush? I haven't mentioned either of them once.

Those who don't have no one to blame but themselves for not being successful. It's really not that difficult to grasp. No one is going to hand you a life, go out and fucking make one for yourself.

It's called discussion, all I hear often is these threads is BUSH BUSH BUSH, news flash, Junior hasn't been president now for a term and a half, and things have arguably gotten worse not better.
