81. If I never heard the term "personal responsibility" again...
It would be too soon. Especially since, exactly as you suggest, it is usually bandied about by people who have absolutely NO actual sense of "personal responsibility" of their own. They are quick with a condescending lecture but always fail to notice that they are the very same people who have an "entitlement mentality" regarding their own right to consume as much as they want, pollute the planet all to hell, ignore the needy among them, etc.

A lot of them need their mouths washed out with battery acid whenever they spout a hypocritical, self-serving lecture about "personal responsibility."
