IT AIN’T MY FAULT … YES IT IS

 

If you’re willing to take fault … then you’re allowed to take credit.

We all have a friend, acquaintance or know of someone who is willing to take credit for things but more than a little shy when it comes to taking blame.

How do I know?

Well, no one seems to be taking blame for the way some things are going here in the good ole’ US of A—and God knows someone or … some ones are to blame.

But they’re hard to find because they’re hiding behind what they’ve done right—no matter how much or how little.

… What do you say we grade the President and elected politicians on their decisions?

Like a test.

You know, where you get credit for what’s right and … fault for what’s wrong—like my sons’ math and reading tests. My kids can’t come home with a 40 on a math test and celebrate the 4 out of 10 questions they got right. School is not baseball. And what’s going on in this country isn’t a game.

HEY … WAKE UP!

The wool covers are being pulled over a nation’s eyes. The people in charge are woefully wrong and hiding under the cover of what little has been done right.  

Our country isn’t great because of who is leading us … we are great because we choose who leads us.

And when our choice only takes credit and rarely finds fault in their decisions, it is our fault when things aren’t going right. 

This is the greatest country in the world; Americans can take credit for that. If it falls apart, Americans are at fault. 

So, if who you voted for is taking credit and celebrating the 4 out of 10 decisions they made right and not taking fault for the 6 they got wrong, then, well … you can take the credit or fault for where we are as a nation today.

However, the great thing with fault is that you can admit to it, apologize for it and figure out a way to fix it.

Then, if things go right … by all means, take credit.

That goes for both the electorate and the elected.

Everything is your fault—good and bad.

Go USA—Get Ballzee!

Political IncorREDSKIN

What made America great was the desire, the will to take hold of the business end of shovels, axes and yes … firearms.

Like it or not, that is the truth.

Now this isn’t an ad for guns … or shovels and axes. It’s an ad for truth—a metaphor.

These tools, among many others in the grip of thick-skinned, calloused American hands built and maintain the freedom, security and lifestyle the world has come here to admire and take part of.  

We’re not a nation of thin-skinned softies—as it appears to some. Nor are we a nation of redskins, whiteskins or blackskins—we’re a nation of allskins.

 It’s just that there are some thin-skinned softies running the show.  

Again, the truth … like it or not.

No, Americans, for the most part are still thick-skinned rough necks—civilized, thick-skinned roughnecks whose hands, callous from the business end of freedoms tools are being worn thin with the tolerant political correctness of thin-skinned folks’ callous disregard for the same tolerance they preach.  

Again, the truth … like it or not.

What else could account for the momentum gathered in absurd controversies like that of the NFL’s Washington REDSKINS name?

It’s offensive—to some—but not most.

How about Yankee?

Offensive?

Should the New York Yankees be concerned? Surely, notwithstanding the complete history of the name, someone must be offended by the term “Yankee.”  Hell, when I was in the south in the 70’s, I was called a “Damn Yankee” … more than once—that’s disparaging, yes?

Should the cry for the ban on The New York “Yankee” name begin? Or should common sense prevail and recognize the full and evolving history of the name.  

I don’t know why the name REDSKINS was picked and not Devils or Angels, both of which can raise an incoherent reason for ban. But you can bet it wasn’t picked because it was offensive or disparaging.

Get over it.

For the love of Redskins, Devils, Angels, Yankees, Buccaneers, Raiders, Patriots and all mascots the world over … STOP—IT’S A MASCOT!

Hey thin-skinners, how’s about Getting Ballzee and stop giving the one’s holding the business end of freedoms tools the business. Don’t put a ban on REDSKINS, put on a callous or two and then put on the TV and … watch the GAME.

After all, it’s a mascot … in a game.

SEE THE PROBLEM?

NO

NO.

It’s a fine answer.

Nothing wrong with saying, “No.”

I tell my kids that “no” is a perfectly acceptable response in life.

“No” makes you and the recipient stronger.

Freedom of choice allows anyone, of any class, to exercise their right to decline anything they want.

It’s just one more thing that makes our nation “Ballzee.”

We need to start using “No” as a nation bit more.

Too much is being given to too many nations unwilling to help themselves. We need to say “NO.” It’ll make them and us stronger. GB.
