Glenn Beck: Too bad, Michigan and Florida

Glenn Beck has written a fantastic editorial piece on how we, as individuals and a country, need to step up and follow the rules, and accept the consequences for our actions when we don't. Specifically, the leaders in Michigan and Florida.

From the article:

What do these stories all have in common?

  • A woman who says she lost more $1 million gambling in Atlantic City sues some casinos for $20 million, claiming they should've stopped her compulsive gambling.
  • People who bought houses they couldn't afford with loans they didn't understand want their lenders to change the terms.
  • Congress authorizes a war and then tries everything it can think of to get out of it.
  • Our country gets addicted to oil and then blames OPEC when it doesn't like the price.
  • These stories prove how personal responsibility has all but vanished in America, and our government is leading the way.

    It's definitely worth reading the rest of the article here.
