GUEST,Dave the Gnome BS: Pro / Anti Thatcher Squabble Thread... (243* d) RE: BS: Pro / Anti Thatcher Squabble Thread... 11 May 15


At the risk of labouring the point, Greg, And I know what you said, Dave. I'm not a mind reader.

There is a very easy way of determining what I said. Look it up. I have even saved you the trouble.

I agree, Teribus. If someone wants something they are the only ones who can make it happen. But when something happens to stop them, like sickness or unemployment, we should be helping them, not blaming them for our own deficiencies.

Why fatuous, Greg? Simplistic maybe but, if you want something, you have the ultimate responsibility for making it happen. You may fail on a number of occasions but, if so, either try again or reset your sights.

I am not following your reasoning here at all,Greg, please explain. What is facile about stating that the responsibility of getting something ultimately lies with yourself?

"You ARE living in a dream world if you think that all that is required for "success" is individual initiative - excluding all the myriad factors outside the individual's control."

Where did I or anyone say it was all that was required? I believe the term used was that the ultimate responsibility was personal. Of course things can get in your way, which is why we either try again or reset our sights. Again something I already stated.


Now, in which of those statements do you believe I said that that all that is required for "success" is individual initiative? Just so I don't make the same mistake again.
