What do you think?

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 Trust' on our
money and having 'God' in the Pledge of Allegiance.. Why don't we just tell
the 14% to BE QUIET!!!

Re: What do you think?

Once again, great commentary, but not Andy Rooney. Snopes

I wouldn't be surprised if I now get comments that say "I don't care who said that, it's awesome." I agree with what was stated, but to attach a famous person's name to try to give it extra credibility (or whatever the motivation was) is ridiculous. Whether the reaction is positive or negative, falsely identifying a statement as belonging to a particular individual is not fair to that person. Sorry for my budding OCD.

I totally agree with that statement...Im going to school to become a State Trooper I don't want to be killed in the line of duty because I have to think political "ohh he's black if I shoot him i'll be fired and put in prison" or killed.

anyways great read!!!!

If I had written that, I would have put my name on it, not Andy Rooney's. Or maybe sent it to Andy Rooney to read and put his own name on it.

Re: What do you think?

Not trying to mislead anyone, I just got it sent to me, and thought it was pretty good.
