Government not to blame for everything

2015-08-27 06:00

BEING an avid runner I sometimes run through Louisiana and I have noticed that their communal tap runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

This tap is a plastic type because anything metal gets stolen. Where am I going with this rant?

It is easy to blame the government for everything that is wrong with this country, but people are too lazy to look at their behaviour.

Surely the government can’t be tasked with running this country on its own. We civilians have to play our role.

Even at work, you find highly educated people not taking care of equipment and then they blame the government when everything breaks down.

This is not right.
