Is there anything in your life that has ever been not acceptable?

If so, whose fault was it?

When things are not acceptable in my world, it's usually my fault, or someone I've hired's fault (which means it's still my fault).

Here's a buzzword I use, and it may upset you too: Personal responsibility.

That's what makes folks successful ... personal resp. eliminates a lot of not acceptables!

there's probably a circumferance of evil involved.

or perhaps a radius of evildoings?

a tangent of incredulity

Brad, if there is one thing NO ONE in the Bush administration has ever assumed, for anything, ranging from too few troops in Iraq and Abu Ghraib to the outing of Valery Plame and the balooning deficit, is PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY!

If one was to look at how the CPA appointments were made as well as other important positions under the prez. one might question whether loyalty is the best criteria for job performance.

The federal official in charge of the bungled New Orleans rescue was fired from his last private-sector job overseeing horse shows.
And before joining the Federal Emergency Management Agency as a deputy director in 2001, GOP activist Mike Brown had no significant experience that would have qualified him for the position.
The Oklahoman got the job through an old college friend who at the time was heading up FEMA.
The agency, run by Brown since 2003, is now at the center of a growing fury over the handling of the New Orleans disaster.
The White House last night defended Brown's appointment. A spokesman noted Brown served as FEMA deputy director and general counsel before taking the top job, and that he has now overseen the response to ``more than 164 declared disasters and emergencies,'' including last year's record-setting hurricane season.

"...The good news is and it's hard for some to see it now that out of this chaos is going to come a fantastic Gulf Coast, like it was before. Out of the rubbles of Trent Lott's house he's lost his entire house there's going to be a fantastic house. And I'm looking forward to sitting on the porch." GWB 9/2/05

Where's that troll, Nick?

Good responses otherwise ... but the troll that started this thread is one that's not sure how to get re-involved!

Brad, are you sure the troll isn't in the looking glass?
