Worn Out Excuses September 21, 2012

People often claim that they don’t have the time . . . to exercise, eat right, or meditate. 

Often, it’s not a lack of time holding them back ~ the activity in question is just not a priority for them.

So they hide behind a socially acceptable, worn around the edges, excuse ~ the claimed lack of time.

In like vein, businesses making unpopular decisions often claim they “had no choice” . . . as they bulldoze forests . . . pollute the Gulf of Mexico . . . outsource jobs to China . . . or club baby seals to death for their fur.

In reality, these greedy bastards had other choices available that they chose not to explore.

These S.O.B.’s are so concerned with the immediate bottom line that THEY would rather rape the planet and give the rest of us the finger than wrestle with the morality and long-term sustainability of the choices they make.

Sorry.   You’ll have to excuse this post.   

I hate pointing fingers at unnamed generic C.E.O.’s (Chief Exploitation Officers) like this, but I had no choice ~ I just don’t have the time to explore this issue in greater depth and detail right now.  

I’m busy. 

I have a lot of balls in the air right now ~ I’m contemplating my navel, watching  paint dry, and twiddling my thumbs.  All at the same time!  

What’s your excuse?  😉

Aah . . . that’s better!
