Yes and No
Dear God this is hysterical:
On the otter heiny, I have to quibble with this:
It's what you're called on to do that makes you great. We haven't been called on to do anything but buy shit and get fat. Even after 9/11, during the darkest moment of our recent history, the President told us, “Go shopping.” That's how we were told to uphold American values; go out and fucking buy more shit. So what were we supposed to do?
It's what you're called on to do that makes you great.
No. It's how we decide to respond to adversity that illuminates and often refines our character.
If you're still sitting around waiting for someone else to tell you to do the right thing, you're passing the buck. Moral responsibility can't be delegated.
No, wait. Apparently, it can.

You sound like an enemy of the sheeple.

Yes it can. It is called passing the buck.
No one has to accept responsibility for anything anymore; that is what government programs are for.

It is called passing the buck.
But if you *hit* the buck doing 65, it is called "fast food"...
