Blame it on the rain (rain)
Blame it on the stars (stars)
Whatever you do don't put the blame on you
These very words, by themselves, describe the attitudinal and cultural flaws that have become so pervasive, here in the U.S. and the rest of the world. They illustrate a certain lowering of value standards.
Evidently so does Joan Vennochi of the Boston Globe, so evidenced by her latest column entitled, Blame game has no winners.
IT'S TIME grown-ups embraced a sentiment popular today with kids: ``My bad."
The expression -- launched from missed passes and shots during pickup basketball games -- means ``It's my fault. I take responsibility."
The rest of the article demonstrates the insanity of just how the political world sounds to those outside it. It shows how they must have used the lyrics of this song as the primary basis for developing these standards of attitudes and ethics. The fine art of blame casting and failure to take responsibility is a required block of instruction for all future politicians, and it is now carrying over to the rest of the people.
And we wonder where kids learn to lie, cheat, and steal. All they need to do is follow Congress to any minor degree, and they can see all three in perfect functional operation.
