Who are you accountable for (excepting your children until they turn 18 and move out into the world)?
You and only you.
Too many people are making mistakes that are tied to their jobs, their affiliations, their nations, and the color of your skin.
It is time we started back to the day when we worried about not WHEN but WHERE our moms would come out and smack us in the head for not thinking clearly or opening our mouths and saying shit we KNOW we shouldn’t say.
The time is now to make changes in our lives that affect only ourselves and not the people or entities around us. Too many people judge not just you but what you might represent or who you hang out with by your actions alone.
You must be smart when you are hanging onto the reputation of any business or organization that is not yours. Same thing with the “you lie!” senator Wilson.
We have to be cautious about our actions especially when we are in the public eye.
ACORN is not an organization that should be brought down in flames by employees who make mistakes and an activist filmmaker. If you saw the video clip of the pimp and the prostitute, you would have played along with them as well if they came into your office. The pimp had on the hat, the coat and the can that EVERYONE would draw if they were asked to do so of a pimp and a ho.
True accountability sometimes means shutting your damn mouth. We should raise our kids this way and society should hold them accountable as individuals and not the organization they are affiliated with.
