    Default Andy Rooney said this on "60 Minutes" a few weeks back:

    Right on, Andy Rooney !

    Andy Rooney said this 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!!!"

    Amen to that!

    All of it.

    The greatest thing I had accomplished in my life was serving my country, until I became a dad.

    I would say this thread almost deserves a sticky! Ole Andy Rooney hit the nail on the head with that little speech. Andy Rooney gets an "atta boy" in my book!

    This has been around for a few years now, Uncle Ted was given credit for it but he didn't say it either. Last I hear it was some comedian named George Carlin or something like that. Still pretty cool though.

    I think the original one I got a few months ago was suppose to be by George Carlin

    Heck, don't care who wrote it, but it's about time someone said it.

    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
    Jesus Christ & The American G. I.
    One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    Some People spend their whole lives wondering if they made a difference in the world.
    Luckily our Service Men and Women don't have that problem.

    YEP, What he said. It has always amazed me how such a small percent of the population can dictate to the whole. The last time that I checked we still lived in a democracy.

    I agree! Actually MANY need to "shout" it!!

    Seems the few who are determined to change the ways of America get more airtime and attention that the masses who feel just the way that is written!

    And I may be mistaken but I could swear I DID hear Andy Rooney repeat it the other night!

    Great thread wheels!
