BRAVO ANDY ROONEY!!!!

Right on, Andy Rooney! Andy Rooney said on 60 minutes a few weeks back:
(for those of you that don't know Andy Rooney, he is an 82 year old US TV commentator)


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, that 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 milk shake, 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 your sorry self 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. Ask your buddy that invented the Internet to help you. (Al)

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. DON'T PASS IT ON!!

WooooooHoooooooooo, He really gets it don't he?

I agree 110% with every fucking word...

I think i'll put this in circulation like i did the "Dean Experiments". They may try to keep it quiet, and it may work, or so they'll think until election day, lol...

Did you actually SEE Andy Rooney make this speech? Because it reads almost exactly like that letter that has been attributed to Ted Nugent, George Carlin, Charlie Daniels, and a number of other celebrities, but in fact was not said by any of them.

So I wouldn't "circulate" it just yet. It may backfire on you ;)

No biggie, it isn't as though i still don't agree with it no matter who wrote it, lol...

Regardless of who wrote it, it's a work of art.

I don't see anything racist or homophobic about it. It's just the truth.

I'll do just that, and i'll start with the black dude wearing the African dress...

It's all about symbolism with them. there is not an ounce of patriotic love for their culture.
Just like the American Blacks wanting the government to pay them for their ancestors being slaves.

get the fuck over it, get a fucking job and make your own damn money like everyone else.
The moment you show me a scar from a damn shackle then i'll lobby for you to be compensated for your pain...

I think it's true. I've seen it before.

Are we sure this only recently aired? I swear I read something of Rooney's just like this before.

It's fucking WONDERFUL. Not a word of it is wrong.

I ain't no Eruorpean American.

technically, since the first homo sapiens came from africa, we're ALL african-americans. some just a little farther removed than others...
