Unable to Accept Responsibility

I see this in people who want to to be leaders and/or leadership positions. They think an excuse gets them off the hook. Or good intentions count for good actions.  They throw people under the bus. They think “rain in Seattle” is an unforeseen event. I don’t know whether to be angry at these people or truly feel sorry for them.

The sad/ironic part to these people is they can be intelligent yet stupid. They can analyze the problems in others and fail to see the obvious about themselves. They are like the stars where the field of gravity is too strong and light can’t get out but for them it seems light can’t get in.

I should/want to end this on a positive note. There are wonderful people who take responsibility and take a nanosecond to deal with problems. They stop and let people on their “buses”. They fix the problem not the blame.

    This has nothing to do with my new book, “Why Happened”.

    You might say, “You are always blaming Brent so how could you write a post like this?”

    I say, “It is Right Angles fault but I am too gutless to blame her. Besides she gave me a blurb on my book.”

    Why Happened By 10c is the best door stop I have ever had. At 500 pages it does the job. — Right Angles

    I can’t wait to read the chapter where you blame your election loss on socksism.

    Of course it did not help to have Vald proofreading my ad buys. Vald, slot is spelled with an “o”. An “o”.

    “Dime a man for any slot” should have no “u”s in it.

    It sounds like the literary event of the century, which is the equivalent of bubblespeak.

    I too am working on a book explaining the fact that while I desired to rule the universe I fell victim to the machinations of the nasty ones. My book will however will include some serious concepts , hence the title of

    WTF Sharknado Happened VII.

      But my book has stick figures for naval aviators and vectors, TKC. Example: Lushians ——-> Bad; Camay ——> Bad ; Barney —–> Bad; Me ——> Robbed

    I used Amazon’s “Look inside” feature to get an idea of what this book was like. Turns out to be worse than expected: full of clichés and magical thinking. Hilarious [Hillary-ous] too.

    On second thought, maybe it’s exactly what I expected.

    What are you charging for tickets to hear you recite cliches. I’ve heard it’s a bit more than a dime.

    I just got the email today! Hillary’s coming to do an evening of speaking (and coughing I expect) at Philly’s Academy of Music right after Thanksgiving! Nosebleed seats are $175, Family Circle $185, floor just $195. Front Row VIP Experience Package only $650 (plus $96 ticket service fee). I hope I’m not too sick of turkey by then to go!

    Richard Easton, you told me that if I punched in the right stuff the GPS would get me to the White House. I did it and still didn’t make it in.

    • 10 Cents10 Cents says:

      That book isn’t even written by Hillary, DocLor. What? The other one isn’t too. But it says Hillary Clinton on the cover.

  10. RichardEaston says:

    Yes, all you had to do was campaign in Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin. Instead, you kept on punching in the addresses of viarious doctors after the non incident of 9/11/16. I could almost think that HRC was lying to us.

  11. RichardEaston says:

    You called them deplorable and they didn’t vote for you. They are ungrateful wretches.

  12. 10 Cents10 Cents says:

    Well, there is the camp and the intensive course, DocLor, for those who want to repay their debt to society.

      I hear they’re going to start using the audiobook (read by the author) at Gitmo for enhanced interrogation instead of waterboarding. Sounds like a violation of the Geneva Convention to me.

    I still remember this nugget of wisdom from a Japanese friend, “Those who crave people thinking good things about them rarely get that. But those who could care less about who gets the credit get the credit.”

  14. 10 Cents10 Cents says:

    Some authors should not read their own books. They have voices made for Silent Movies, don’t they?

    Hillary sounds so bored reading her stuff. Almost like a POW reading the propaganda in Nam. She gets through the material but she’d really rather do something else.
