Also about blame-89In reality, it takes about the same amount of time to drive somewhere whether you speed or not. People who speed are just able to blame traffic lights when they get stopped at them for a long time, which is easier than putting the blame of being late on yourself for driving more slowly, amirite?

Also about Politics+4We always hear about a need for new taxes to help our schools. I'm not buying it. One of the big pushes for legalization of marijuana here in Colorado was that the money would be used for education. Last year, Colorado collected over 260 million in marijuana taxes. Not one penny went to teachers or students. Now they want to increase property taxes and other taxes, to support our schools, once again. Where the hell is the money going and why aren't corrupt politicians being held accountable?
Also about Politics+14The media needs to be taken with a grain of salt, amirite?
Also about blame+257People blame society when they are too afraid to blame themselves, amirite?
Also about blame+443It's nearly impossible to pin the blame on parents any more. Your children turned out to be violent thugs? Blame the video games, not bad parenting. Your daughter sleeps with abusive men? Blame society, not father problems. Your child is failing school? Blame the teachers, not your inability to motivate your child. Even if it's true in some cases, it's still not entirely fair, amirite?
Also about blame+468people blame Obama for the oil spill in the gulf, I blame the cast of jersy shore for all going swimming at once, amirite?
Also about Politics-3I've been watching the media explode over this whole "me too" movement. From the way it has been promoted, you are led to believe 9 out of 10 guys is now a sexual predator. I'm an older guy, and have never even known anyone personally, who was guilty of rape or attempted rape. Does it happen? Of course it happens. I just don't think it happens as often as it is portrayed to be happening. Kids making out in a car, and one touching the other's breast, but stopping when the girl says no, is not sexual assault in my book. Sexual assault is a crime, and needs to be treated as a crime. With a crime, you need to report it, and evidence needs to be collected. Then a person is charged and judged. I'm sick of women accusing a man 30+ years later, with zero evidence, and then collecting a million dollar paycheck. (Be it from book deals, go fund me pages, or media/political pay-offs.) This craziness will not stop until ALL false accusers have to spend serious jail time when found to be making it up.
Also about blame+539People blame religion for all of the problems of the world, but religion isn't to blame; people are. Without religion, people would find different reasons to cause the same problems. amirite?
Also about blame+750It sucks that people blame the President for everything, when in reality, the President doesn't have any real power at all (can push for new laws, that's about it). The Senate basically runs the country, we just vote every four years for someone new to blame, amirite?
