"The first step to truly living a good and fearless life,
is accepting responsibility for your actions.
Accepting what part you had in any situation.
Difficult, to say the least, but liberating."
Jann Arden
(1962-) Canadian singer-songwriter

 -- Kaleem, pune, india      
Though the occupying statist theocracy (police state) may, at its/their whim, place me in prison any day for being a Christian Freeman (loving my enemies, blessing them that curse me, doing good to them that hate me, and pray for them which despitefully use me, and persecute me & assuming among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle me), I take responsibility for my own actions and fear not the consequences. Life is good then it just gets better.

    This is the antithesis of our statist government's philosophy: take no responsibility and suffer no consequences for your actions (though there are consequences for employing your 1st amendment right) Example: Single mothers - once there were 2 kinds - widows (deserving poor) and unwed mothers (engaging in activity that creates s burdensome situation for society or family) a person with cancer (deserving poor) or an alcoholic/ drug addict (engaging in activity that detracts from productivity) Now, there are just sick people in need of medical attention. See how it works? No judgments. The dissolution of a once great society of strong and purposeful people, so everyone can be called ....nice. Actually, I would not judge these people either except that I as a producer am now required to fork over the wealth of my family to support these activities (social security, unemployment compensation, workman comp, disability, Section 8 housing, EBT cards - the new food stamp with no stigma, Medicaid.

    Every problem I had was a result of bad choices I made. No one was to blame but me.

    Our families have been forking it over sense 1937. A chicken in the pot has become the monster of today. To confess sooths for a day, to repent ( turn away) changes one for a life time.

    And worst Ron w13, Or is that others today feel entitled to what we have taken from us via taxes to support welfare payments, food stamps, and medicaid.
