Go Andy Rooney!

CBS DIDN’T STOP HIM- THIS IS GREAT – Good for him!!!

Surprised CBS let him get away with this even though he’s right……….

 

Right on, Andy Rooney ! Andy Rooney said on ’60 Minutes’ a few weeks back:

‘I don’t think being a minority makes you a victim of anything except numbers. The only things I can think of that are truly discriminatory are things like the United Negro College Fund, Jet Magazine, Black Entertainment Television, and Miss Black America. Try to have things like the United Caucasian College Fund, Cloud Magazine, White Entertainment Television, or Miss White America; and see what happens…Jesse Jackson will be knocking down your door.

Guns do not make you a killer. I think killing makes you a killer. You can kill someone with a baseball bat or a car, but no one is trying to ban you from driving to the ball game.

I believe they are called the Boy Scouts for a reason, which is why there are no girls allowed. Girls belong in the Girl Scouts! ARE YOU LISTENING MARTHA BURKE ?

I think that if you feel homosexuality is wrong, it is not a phobia, it is an opinion.

I have the right ‘NOT’ to be tolerant of others because they are different, weird, or tick me off.

When 70% of the people who get arrested are black, in cities where 70% of the population is black, that is not racial profiling; it is the Law of Probability.

I believe that if you are selling me a milkshake, a pack of cigarettes, a newspaper or a hotel room, you must do it in English!  As a matter of fact, if you want to be an American citizen, you should have to speak English!

My father and grandfather didn’t die in vain so you can leave the countries you were born in to come over and disrespect ours.

I think the police should have every right to shoot you if you threaten them after they tell you to stop. If you can’t understand the word ‘freeze’ or ‘stop’ in English, see the above lines.

I don’t think just because you were not born in this country, you are qualified for any special loan programs, government sponsored bank loans or tax breaks, etc., so you can open a hotel, coffee shop, trinket store, or any other business.

We did not go to the aid of certain foreign countries and risk our lives in wars to defend their freedoms, so that decades later they could come over here and tell us our constitution is a living document; and open to their interpretations.

I don’t hate the rich, I don’t pity the poor.

I know pro wrestling is fake, but so are movies and television. That doesn’t stop you from watching them.

I think Bill Gates has every right to keep every penny he made and continue to make more.  If it ticks you off, go and invent the next operating system that’s better, and put your name on the building.

It doesn’t take a whole village to raise a child right, but it does take a parent to stand up to the kid; and smack their little behinds when necessary, and say ‘NO!’

I think tattoos and piercing are fine if you want them, but please don’t pretend they are a political statement. And, please, stay home until that new lip ring heals. I don’t want to look at your ugly infected mouth as you serve me French fries!

I am sick of ‘Political Correctness.’ I know a lot of black people, and not a single one of them was born in Africa; so how can they be ‘African-Americans’?  Besides, Africa is a continent. I don’t go around saying I am a European-American because my great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather was from Europe. I am proud to be from America and nowhere else.

And if you don’t like my point of view, tough…

I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG, OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA , AND TO THE REPUBLIC, FOR WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!

I was asked to send this on if I agree or delete if I don’t. It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God.. Therefore I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a problem in having ‘In God We Trus t’ on our money and having ‘God’ in the Pledge of Allegiance. Why don’t we just tell the 14% to BE QUIET!!!

If you agree, pass this on, if not delete.

Good Questions

You HAVE to admit, these are very good questions! I don’t know who the author is.

Questions?

MAYBE I’VE GOTTEN THIS ALL WRONG – ME JUST BEING AN AVERAGE MIDDLE CLASS GUY WITHOUT MUCH FORMAL EDUCATION BEYOND A B.A. DEGREE…BUT NOW, CHECK THIS OUT:

THIS MAN WANTS OUR VOTE FOR U.S. PRESIDENT – HIS FATHER WAS A KENYAN, AND A BLACK- WE SAW ALL THOSE PICTURES OF HIS NICE AFRICAN FAMILY.

HIS MOTHER IS KANSAN, ATHEIST, AND WHITE. SO – WHERE ARE ALL THOSE PICTURES OF HIS NICE WHITE MOTHER AND HIS NICE WHITE KANSAS GRANDPARENTS – THE ONES WHO RAISED HIM ALL THOSE EARLY YEARS?

LETS SEE – HIS FATHER DESERTED HIS MOTHER AND HIM WHEN HE WAS VERY YOUNG AND MOVED BACK TO LIVE WITH HIS FAMILY IN KENYA (THAT’S THE ONES IN THE PICTURES).

HIS WHITE MOTHER THEN MARRIED AN INDONESIAN MUSLIM AND TOOK HIM TO THE CITY OF JAKARTA WHERE HE WAS FIRST SCHOOLED IN A MUSLIM SCHOOL

HIS MOTHER THEN MOVED TO HAWAII AND HE WAS RAISED BY HIS WHITE MIDDLE CLASS – AMERICAN GRANDPARENTS THERE.

UMMM…NOW HERE’S THE BEGINNING OF THE HARD PART FOR ME (HELP ME OUT HERE, IF YOU CAN):

SOMEHOW, SUDDENLY – HE WENT TO THE BEST HIGH DOLLAR PREP SCHOOLS IN AMERICA, AND NEXT HE GOT INTO A TOP IVY LEAGUE
COLLEGE , AND LATER, INTO HARVARD LAW SCHOOL – HOW? WHO SPONSORED HIM? WHO PAID FOR ALL THAT SCHOOLING?

(HAVE YOU LOOKED AT TUITION EXPENSES TO ATTEND UNDERGRADUATE YALE LATELY?

HOW ABOUT HARVARD LAW SCHOOL ? SOMEBODY PAID A LOT OF BUCKS FOR THIS KID’S IVY LEAGUE EDUCATION…….)

WHO? HE APPARENTLY DID NOT HAVE SCHOLARSHIPS THAT PAID IT ALL FROM WHAT WE READ.

HE ALSO DID NOT HAVE TO BORROW FOR COLLEGE , ALSO FROM WHAT WE READ. SO???

THAT BRINGS US TO THE MORE CURRENT YEARS:

A U.S. SENATOR’S SALARY IS NOT THAT GREAT, BUT THIS YOUNG MAN AND HIS YOUNG WIFE JUST RECENTLY BOUGHT A $1.4 MILLION DOLLAR HOUSE THAT HE ACQUIRED THROUGH A ‘DEAL’ WITH A WEALTHY FUND
RAISER, A FUND RAISER WHO APPARENTLY IS A CRIMINAL LAW BREAKER PER THE NEWS.

WHAT SORT OF ‘DEAL’?

AND, RIGHT OUT OF HARVARD LAW, HE ‘WORKED’ AS A CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVIST IN CHICAGO WHAT KIND OF PAY IS THIS, WE CAN ASSUME IT IS LITTLE OR NOTHING PAY WISE! OR IS THERE OTHER KIND OF PAY INVOLVED??

HE THEN ENTERED POLITICS AT THE STATE LEVEL WHICH CERTAINLY IS A LOW PAYING JOB, AND THEN MOVED RIGHT TO THE NATIONAL LEVEL. DID HE “FUND RAISE” TO GET THE FUNDS TO GET ELECTED? WHAT KIND OF PROMISES
DID HE MAKE?

NOW, HE SCRAMBLES TODAY WITH A NICE SMILE BUT VERY MINIMAL EXPERIENCE IN ANYTHING – WHILE OTHER PEOPLE WRITE HIS RAH-RAH SPEECHES FOR HIM.

IN ALL HIS MINIMAL TIME IN THE STATE, AND NATIONAL LEGISLATURES –

HE’S NEVER LAUNCHED ANY IMPORTANT LEGISLATION, NONE WHATSOEVER.

MOSTLY, OF LATE FOR SOME TWO YEARS, HE’S BEEN OUT RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT.

THEN COME THE ENDORSEMENTS FOR HIM FROM OTHER COUNTRIES, ONES THAT ARE NOT EXACTLY USA FRIENDS, LIKE THE IRAN PRES, FRENCH PRES, THE IRAQ MINISTER THAT WANTS USA OUT. HMMM WHAT DO THEY SEE IN HIM THAT THEY LIKE?

HE CLAIMS TO BE ‘PROUD OF HIS AFRICAN HERITAGE’ — NICE BUT — IT SEEMS THAT HIS ONLY CONNECTION WITH AFRICA WAS THAT HIS AFRICAN FATHER GOT A WHITE AMERICAN GIRL PREGNANT AND THEN DESERTED HER.

UMMM….WHERE IS THE OUTSPOKEN PRIDE IN HIS WHITE HERITAGE?
AFTER ALL – IT WAS WHITE GRANDPARENTS THAT RAISED HIM!

HE IS PRESENTLY A MEMBER, OR WAS UNTIL POLITICS NECESSITATED A CHANGE, FOR OVER 20 YEARS OF AN ‘AFROCENTRIC’ CHURCH IN CHICAGO THAT SEEMINGLY HATES WHITES, HATES JEWS, AND BLAMES AMERICA FOR
ALL THE WORLD’S FAULTS.

HE REPEATEDLY COVERED UP FOR THAT PASTOR AND THAT CHURCH –
SAYING THAT HE CAN SEPARATE THE RELIGION FROM THE POLITICS, WHEN
HE HEARS A HATE-WHITEY SERMON.

HE CLAIMED THAT HE WAS SIMPLY UNABLE TO CONFRONT HIS PASTOR OF 20+ YEARS ABOUT THE PASTOR’S DEMONSTRATED UN-AMERICAN BIAS.

BUT — HE WANTS US TO BELIEVE THAT HE CAN CONFRONT NORTH KOREA AND IRAN AND RUSSIA WHEN THE TIME ARISES TO TAKE AMERICA ‘S SIDE.

YEAH – WITH HIS BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE, HE ‘HOPES’ THAT HE
COULD BE A “UNITER” AND BRING US ALL TOGETHER;

BUT – WE ARE LEFT TO THINK THAT THE REAL ‘HOPE’ IS, THAT HE REALLY HOPES THAT NO ONE WILL PUT ALL THESE PIECES TOGETHER, AT LEAST NOT UNTIL AFTER THE ELECTION.

YOU MIGHT SEND THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW AND – GET OUT AND VOTE

Could you be a vampire?


You Could Be a Vampire… If You Had To


Like most people, the thought of being a vampire has crossed your mind. But you’re not sure if you’d do it, even if you could.

Living forever doesn’t sound half bad, if you could live forever with the people you love the most.

But do vampires even love? And would the vampire version of you even be you?

It’s all too much to contemplate. Luckily, the chances of you ever becoming a vampire are astronomically low.What you would like best about being a vampire: Living forever

What you would like least about being a vampire: Blood stained teeth

My beautiful place

My beautiful place

The smell of dust and leather permeated the room. The sunlight shining through the dirty windows chased the dust moats across the silent room. An expectant hush filled the air. Books, shelf after shelf of beautiful books lined the yellowed walls.

“Ma’am, Can you show where to find The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom?”

The woman behind the oak desk smiled at me, her eyes lighting up behind her cat shaped eyeglasses. Coming out from behind the desk, she led me to the card file. After showing me how to find the card I was looking for, she sent me in the direction of the book I was looking for and left me free to wonder around the most beautiful place I had ever been, the library.
