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, 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 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 your sorry *** 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...

Ah man, I thought George Carlin said that! :D

Andy Rooney did go off on a not-very-pro-Bush tirade one night, however, but I don't think that discussion will last long here. ;)

Robin Williams did too didn't he? All these comedians think alike I suppose.

I was a little concerned when I posted it, but I did like what it said. Regardless of who said it.

Thank you ShadowDragon for pointing out that it was NOT Andy Rooney who said it. I am a fan of Mr. Rooney's and was suspicious myself that it was fake but I still agreed with what it said.

Well, I'll be the first to say that no matter the origin of the said post, I disagree with at least a third what it says or is implicated.
But I did get a chuckle out of a few of them: "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!" :tongue:

Just as a side note, I agree with some of those lines, but of course not all..the more racist ones are out in my book...even the speak English one...unless they speak French...then they should be speaking English here, since we kept them from having to speak German :tongue:

That sounded pretty hardcore for Andy Rooney...and yeah, some of those are pretty racist. I'd go into detail about which ones I agree/disagree with, but I think that would cross the line in this neutral forum.

I posted that too, and it was locked.

ibtl.

What about sending junk mail back to companies that have the prepaid envelopes? Said stick as much in those as you can, because they have to pay for whatever amount is necessary for postage. I think I heard it on Paul Harvey.
