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...

Last month, National University of Lesotho scientists released the results of a recent analysis that revealed the presence of female hormones in beer.
Men should take a concerned look at their beer consumption.
The theory is that beer contains female hormones (hops contain phytoestrogens) and that by drinking enough beer, men turn into women .
To test the theory, 100 men drank 8 pints of beer each within a 1 hour period.
It was then observed that 100% of the test subjects :
1) Argued over nothing
2) Refused to apologize when obviously wrong.
3) Gained weight.
4) Talked excessively without making sense.
5) Became overly emotional.
6) Couldn't drive.
7) Failed to think rationally.
Had to sit down while urinating.
No further testing was considered necessary.
Send this to the men you know to warn them about drinking too much beer!

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL YOU KIDS WHO WERE BORN IN THE 1940's, 50's, 60's and 70's !!
First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried us
They took aspirin, ate
blue cheese dressing, tuna from a tin, and didn't get tested for diabetes
Then after that trauma, our baby cots and toys were covered with brightly coloured lead-based paints AND we survived!
We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, not to mention, the risks we took hitch-hiking and swinging on those dodgy 'Tarzan' rope and tyre swings out over the river!!
As children, we would ride in cars with no seat belts or air bags
Riding in the back of a van - loose - was always great fun.
We drank water DIRECT from the garden hosepipe and NOT from a bottle
We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and NO ONE
actually died from this
We ate cakes, white bread and real butter and drank pop with sugar in it, but we weren't overweight because......
WE WERE ALWAYS PLAYING OUT !!
We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on
No one was able to reach us all day And we were OK
We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps of wood and old pram wheels from the tip and then ride downhill at speed, only to find out we forgot the brakes! But after running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem!
We did not have Playstations, Nintendo's, X-boxes, no video games at all, no 999 channels on cable, no video tape movies, no surround sound, no mobile phones, no text messaging, no personal computers, no Internet or Internet chat rooms..........
WE HAD REAL FRIENDS and GANGS and we went and played out with them!
We fell out of trees, cut our knees, broke bones and teeth and there were no lawsuits from these accidents
We played with worms and mud pies made from dirt, and we didn't catch a life-threatening disease, nor did the worms did not live in us forever
We made up games with sticks and tennis balls and although we were told it would happen ''if we weren't careful'', we did not poke out anybodys eye
We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just yelled for them!
We picked teams and not everyone made the 'best' team. Those kids who didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!! ??
The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the local bobby!
This generation has produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever!
The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas.
We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned
HOW TO DEAL WITH IT ALL!
And YOU are one of them!
You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before the lawyers and the government regulated our lives for our own good.
and whilst you are at it, forward it to your kids so they will know how brave their parents were.
